An elegant period house 175 yards from Maldon High Street.
The property dates back to the early 19th century and is listed as being of Architectural or Historical Interest Grade II. An extract from the listing states "a house of two storeys with basement, three window range. Two light casements with segmental arched heads on first floor. The ground floor has cellar entrance, French window and flight of three steps up to semi-circular-headed door opening with c.20 hood." The elevations are colour-washed rendered relieved by deep windows. A welcoming hallway provides access to the home office at the front of the property and a spacious living room with lofty ceiling heights, tall windows and a log burner. Taking centre stage at the rear of the house is a large kitchen/family room with a great deal of natural light from two sets of bi-fold doors. The kitchen is finished with a range of bespoke handmade units from Higham Kitchens finished with painted light-grey cabinetry with contrasting granite tops anchored around an island unit which adjoins a dining and sitting room. There are fantastic views from this room elevated towards Wickham Bishops. Beyond lies a utility room and cloakroom with a traditional suite and tiling. Stairs from the kitchen, retained by a glass balustrade, lead to a cellar room with a natural lightwell making for an ideal children's playroom or cinema room.
On the first floor there are four generous bedrooms with high ceillings and deep windows, a fully tiled shower room and spacious bathroom with a traditional suite feature an oval bath and traditional floor and wall tiling.
There is parking at the front of the house for one car. The owners currently rent a further space close by. The rear gardens have been landscaped in a split level design and feature a terrace outside of the kitchen which is ideal for al fresco dining, a lawned garden area, a productive vegetable patch and a useful garden cabin with electric which in itself has lovely views over the adjoining countryside and may well suit as a further home office.

The conservation area of Cromwell hill gives the feeling of strolling back in time. An array of beautiful period homes make such an attractive street scene. Once inside this beautiful home, the quality and attention to detail are obvious, blending the period fabric with 21st century features.Stephen White
