About this property

  • Headland Barn is situated on the immediate outskirts of Maldon, within an exclusive and private location known as Maldon Hall Farm, which includes a handful of properties set behind established hedgerows, trees and a long driveway. The property has been re-imagined for 21st century living, dating from the 17th century and listed Grade II of architectural or historical Interest. The barn has been designed so that the principal reception rooms overlook the beautiful gardens to the front, with a southerly orientation providing light-filled rooms. The accommodation is well planned and versatile, with three first floor bedrooms and one on the ground floor.

    A substantial hall includes one of two staircases, a cloakroom, a utility room and a useful store. An integral garage has the potential to become another bedroom or annexe area (subject to any necessary consents). The kitchen/breakfast room extends to 38 ft (11.5m) and is thoughtfully furnished with Shaker-style units topped with contrasting work surfaces. The units wrap around a substantial island incorporating a sink and storage, and with seating. A wall of full-height glazing provides a lovely outlook and a great deal of natural light. Off the kitchen/breakfast room is a cosy garden room, again with full-height glazing and a vaulted timber ceiling. This room adjoins the second entrance to the barn. A beautiful well-proportioned dining room sits at the centre of the barn adjacent to a magnificent sitting room. This room was once the mid-stray to the original barn, now with tall dual-aspect glazing, vaulted two-storey timbered ceiling, open fireplace and a snug segregated by exposed timbers. At the end of the barn is a ground floor bedroom with en suite wet room.

    On the first floor are two/three bedrooms. The principal bedroom has an en suite dressing room with the potential to be converted to a bedroom, with access to a Jack & Jill bathroom. A second staircase leads to the fourth bedroom with en suite bathroom.

    Adjacent to the barn is a detached outbuilding with weatherboard elevations under a clay pantile roof. The building consist of an integral garage, an exercise pool, a changing/shower room and a plant room. To the north is a substantial gravelled parking area with a central island and screened with mature trees. Adjacent is the oil tank and private drainage system. To the front is a large swathe of lawns segregated by a private estate road separating further lawns, evergreen and deciduous trees.

    Services
    Mains water and electricity, oil-fired central heating, private drainage.

For me, this location is a real hidden gem, situated on the immediate borders of Maldon and containing a handful of period homes. This is a great opportunity to acquire the jewel in the crown.
