HISTORY AND BACKGROUND A stunning and individually designed (2002) three storey detached waterside building, currently a commercial premises with majority concrete beamed floors, but with more recent approval (November 2018) for a full conversion to a single two bedroom dwelling house. Plans and the Full Application approved can be seen on Maldon District Council's web site under application number 18/01326/FUL.
We believe that the conversion would be relatively cost effective, (but dependent upon the quality of kitchens and sanitary ware) and would suggest that private residential borrowing would probably not be considered as the buildings current status is 'Commercial' until converted. Therefore the price has been set keenly, with due anticipation that the property may be more suited to cash buyers. VAT would only be payable on the purchase price, if the building were to remain with any Commercial aspect (VAT1614D).
An excellent purchase, particularly for discerning buyers wishing to create their own luxurious waterside home and further ideal for downsizers who would be seeking luxury without comprising the size of rooms.
SETTING AND LOCATION Chandlers Quay is located on the South side of the River Blackwater in a Conservation Area, with enviable views which can be enjoyed especially from the west (sunset) facing first and second floor turreted elevations across the estuary. Tidal moorings, including house boats are sited opposite, (subject to availability) and the building would further suit an incoming purchaser wanting limited amenity space (approximately 29.7 metres squared externally plus internal amenity space) in so far that the outdoor space would be sufficient to accommodate walled, enclosed seating and terrace areas overlooking the river.
The property is situated toward the end of a no through road with excellent walkway access, with a hillside walk up to Maldon High Street or across the river to Tesco's, Lidll and the new Blackwater Retail Park containing Aldi, amongst other retail outlets and coffee shops.
Maldon itself is a highly sought after maritime town, combining the charm of boutique shops and restaurants in the high street with the continued new surrounding development growth, constantly improving the town. The nearest mainline station is from Hatfield Peverel (5.7 miles) with the larger City of Chelmsford and Colchester being 12 and 20 miles respectively.
