General Permitted Development rights have been obtained for the conversion of this former agricultural use building into two, three bedroom attached dwellings with domestic curtilage by Maldon District Council under application number 1APP/X1545/W/18/3199978 and COUPA/MAL/17/00977. Further land is available under separate negotiation. The building occupies a beautiful setting with far-reaching views. The proposed single storey dwellings have been designed to maximise the property's wonderful position and will comprise spacious, open-plan, reception and kitchen space with three bedrooms, and a family bathroom.

The property is discreetly positioned at the end of a private drive in an attractive semi-rural position on the western edge of Southminster village. Southminster is located in the heart of the Dengie Peninsular, a largely agricultural area positioned between the Blackwater estuary and river Crouch. With its vast coastline the area is very popular for sailing and other water sports, particularly from the nearby maritime towns of Maldon and Burnham. Southminster has a medical centre, primary school with a swimming pool available for public use and leisure facilities including a tennis and bowls club. For the commuter there are regular bus and rail services from Southminster and nearby North Fambridge. Further rail links can be found in South Woodham Ferrers, Wickford and Chelmsford. The surrounding villages are home to a number of country pubs with often historic centres. There are also primary schools in the nearby villages of Mayland and Tillingham with secondary schooling available in Burnham, South Woodham Ferrers, Chelmsford and Maldon.

This development opportunity was allowed on appeal to convert a large agricultural building into two, three bedroom attached dwellings with domestic curtilage. All associated documentation can be found on Maldon District Planning Website ref APP/X1545/W18/3199978. For associated operational development in accordance with the terms of the application please refer to ref COUPA/MAL/17/00977.

The properties are being sold with domestic curtilage as illustrated on the site plan. Further land is available under separate negotiation.

We understand all services normal to this type of location are available in the area.

To the south of the barn is a detached three bedroom house along with a detached annexe ideal for multiple living arrangements and/or working from home. The property occupies grounds of around 1.1 acres and is all being sold under separate negotiations.
