About this property

  • A delightful barn conversion, thoughtfully restored offering extensive and versatile accommodation, to the north of Chelmsford.

    Extending to approximately 4,600 sq ft, Thorleys Maltings is Grade II listed and offers unique living accommodation over two levels. This wonderful family home was thoughtfully converted in 2006 and inside the frame is virtually complete with arch braced tie beams adding immense character and charm. The first floor is an exceptional space with a vaulted kitchen/family room of open plan design, with the kitchen area comprehensively fitted with traditional units and appliances including an AGA. A full-frame picture window provides easterly views over the rear garden and beyond. The reception space has been configured with designated dining and reception space and adjacent are two landings - one servicing two bedrooms and a bathroom and the other the principal bedroom, which is set within the oast part of the building with ceiling light and recently re-fitted shower room. Each landing provides access to the ground floor, where there is another substantial reception area with a flagstone floor, and windows and doors on to the rear garden providing a wealth of natural light. There are two further bedrooms on this floor, one with a modern re-fitted shower room and underfloor heating. A bathroom and a utility room complete this side of the barn. A games room and office is accessed from the secondary staircase and there is also an external door from the rear of the property offering a self-contained option.

    The property is discreetly positioned away from the road, approached over a shared shingle drive (with right of way and right of access across it), with a designated parking space to the immediate front corner of the property. The drive continues underneath the property through a pair of electrically-operated gates, opening to a substantial area of parking, leading to a cart lodge-style garage with a useful studio space above.

    The mature, easterly-facing plot is ideal for growing families and has been neatly landscaped to include manicured lawns and an enclosed kitchen garden with paved entertaining areas. The lower nature garden currently has pens for poultry and ducks with a small enclosed pond, meadow grass and mature trees. There is also a separate gated vehicle right of way (by permission) to the northern boundary.

    All in around 1.39 acres
