The property comprises a vacant former garden centre and nursery site totalling 5.25 acres of which circa 2.11 acres is hardstanding and yard.

The garden centre ceased operation in November 2011 and has since been vacant. The buildings are in disrepair but the accommodation previously provided includes a retail sales/showroom area, packing shed and restaurant area with mezzanine store and ancillary offices and w/c facilities. The buildings benefit from corrugated sheet roofing and concrete floors. Externally there is a large car park and yard , various former plant display areas and a number of greenhouses of galvanised steel construction.

All the buildings are in need of extensive repair and are sold 'as seen'.

Location
The former Dengie Garden Centre is located in Maylandsea approximately 7 miles south-east of Maldon, 16 miles east of Chelmsford and 4 miles north-west of Southminster.

The property fronts Mill Road, a private no through road which connects to the B1018 to the south. To the north are residential houses, to the east is agricultural land and to the south is a site which obtained planning approval in December 2013 for the development of a 60 bed nursing home.

The principle accommodation is as follows:

Retail 413.79 sq. m. 4,454 sq. ft.

Planning
A Certificate of Lawful use was granted by Maldon District Council in August 2009 for use of the premises as a garden centre. The property lies outside the Urban Settlement Boundary but is considered to have future development potential.

An application for residential development was refused at appeal in September 2021 under application number 20/00054/FUL.
