The building known as St Francis Convent is located adjacent to St Francis Primary School. It originated as a single dwelling built circa 1880 for local businessman John Sadd. The building is largely of brick construction with a natural slate roof finish. There are ornate timber framed bay projections to all elevations and a number of large and ornate brick chimney stacks. The building became the home of the Franciscan Sisters in 1957, and during the early years it was also used to house the original Roman Catholic Primary School. In 2011 planning was granted for change of use from residential to educational, for use in conjunction with the adjacent primary school. The property was last occupied in 2017. The accommodation is split over basement, ground, first and second floors. In addition, there is a timber and glass Belvedere which sits atop the Convent offering near 360 degree panoramic views of Maldon and the surrounding area. Externally to the north of the Convent is a garden area which slopes away from the building. The garden levels out slightly at its most Northern edge and contains planting beds and fruit trees.
