BACKGROUND & HISTORY Shared Freehold
Lying adjacent to the River Chelmer is this superb Penthouse apartment. Situated within a sought after gated apartment complex, the property is part of a stunning residential conversion project that forms an iconic example of Victorian industrial architecture.
The Duplex Apartment is one of only two in the development and provides comfortable and atmospheric modern living space within the original hell of the Victorian era industrial building. The apartment faces East/West so enjoys spectacular dawns looking across the marsh and downriver to Heybridge Basin and Northey Island and equally spectacular sunsets as the sun falls behind the Fullbridge and Maldon upriver.
The owners of the apartments have purchased the Freehold of the properties and have set up a Management Company to oversee maintenance of the Common Parts. The grounds are kept in good order, the paintwork being renewed on a rolling three year programme. In recent years the River Authority have renewed and strengthened the sea wall in front of the Development.
The Granaries lie either side of their own pontoon moorings, allowing occupants to moor one craft up to 24' in length. The provision of a mooring allows ease of access to the local waterways of The Blackwater and the East Anglian Coast, home waters and, further afield, Europe beckons.
SETTING & LOCATION Occupying an enviable position on the water the buildings are within easy reach of Maldon town centre and its High Street which offers a wide variety of stores to meet day to day needs, including a choice of Butchers and an M & S Simply Food Store complemented by a variety of restaurants and pubs etc.
The town offers a choice of four supermarkets, and within walking distance is the Blackwater Retail Park which comprises not only both the Aldi and Lidl supermarkets but also other retail outlets including Next, Sports Direct and Costa Coffee. The Development lies at the end of Station Road where gates open into the private complex.
The property enjoys easy access to Hatfield Peverel Station on the Liverpool Street line into London, the journey taking some 45 minutes. The A12 can be joined northbound and southbound at the same location. Stansted and Southend Airports are both within easy reach and offer an increasing range of domestic and European destinations and the nature of the property lends itself to 'lock up & leave'. The additional bonus of the mooring provides every opportunity for sailing, not only in home waters, but also to Europe and beyond.
OUTSIDE Facilities include single garage, allocated parking space and riverside communal terrace area.
The property is located in a private gated community with automatic gates
for vehicular access and a separate pedestrian gate, also accessed by
means of a code.
The block paved driveway serves the complex. The
branch leading straight ahead serves the single garage space dedicated to
no 9. To the rear of the garage it opens up to one side to provide additional
storage space. In addition there is a single allocated outdoor car park
Overlooking the river is a communal gravelled area suitable for
entertaining purposes. There are a number of Visitors car parking spaces
outside the gates, available on a 'first come, first served' basis.
The private Marina is situated between the two wings of the buildings with
steps leading down to the tidal pontoons. Residents are allowed to moor
craft up to a maximum of 24' in length. The pontoons have individual
electricity supply laid on and there is a water point close by.
