HISTORY AND BACKGROUND Saltcote Maltings is a luxurious gated private development which is centred round its original 19th Century Maltings where Barley would have been transported by water, hence its close proximity to the Blackwater Estuary.
The building was since converted in the 21st Century into unique townhouses; the property available for sale being three storeys high with a magnificent roof light window, where natural light floods down through the open gallery area, which include two internal balconies down into the ground floor dining room.
The versatile four bedroom accommodation is both modern and stylish, ideal for either a primary or secondary home by the sea, offering the ease of a 'lock and leave' property with a small outdoor terrace area for seating and most useful basement room (with low height ceiling) serving as an excellent storage area.
SETTING AND LOCATION Saltcote Maltings is situated on the periphery of Heybridge Basin, located just off the Goldhanger Road and lying adjacent to the Blackwater Estuary with the distinctive aroma of sea air and immediate coded gate access from the development onto the sea wall where a footpath runs alongside the estuary.
Allocated parking for one or two cars lies immediately to the front of the property where 10 wrought iron steps lead up to the front door with a large lockable basement storage area beneath. To the side of the steps is a nautical rope retained seating area with decking and outside lighting.
Heybridge lies approximately 2 miles east of Maldon, close to Heybridge Basin which is a popular visitor destination for walks along the estuary, waterside pubs and eateries alongside the Lock. The path continues along the sea wall for some distance where various walking routes can be found online. Saltcote Marina is the nearest sailing club, whilst others are dotted along the east coast of Essex; the main 'mecca' for sailors being out of Burnham on Crouch, approximately 15 miles away
