Local information

  • Battlesbridge railway station: 1.9 miles; Rayleigh: 2.8 miles (rail service to London); Wickford: 4.3 miles (rail service to London); A130/A127 junction: 2.6 miles. All mileages approximate.
  • The barns are situated in a private enclosure adjacent to the historic Rawreth Hall and a Grade II listed Essex barn. These former farm buildings are believed to have been erected in the late 1800s, single-storey and roofed in slate or corrugated iron. The barns are approached over an unmade farm drive which is partlyshared with Rawreth Hall and is currently owned by the adjoining farm, which also has access to neighbouring farm buildings and the surrounding farmland.

Additional information

  • Services: It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to install private drainage and connect power and water to the barns.
  • Please note that the planning application includes two adjoining barns converted from a substantial detached Essex barn and this is not part of the sale as the owners of Rawreth Hall would like to retain this building.
  • Wayleaves, easements and rights of way: The barns are sold subject to the benefit of all existing wayleaves, easements, quasi-easements, rights of way, covenants and restrictions whether mentioned in these particulars or not.
  • The drive from Rawreth Lane to the barns and Rawreth Hall is partly owned by a third party and we understand that there is a right of access over this lane, for the benefit of Rawreth Hall and the adjoining barns.
  • Rights of access will be reserved along the part of the lane to be owned by the development and the western edge of the development site for foot and vehicular access for the benefit of Rawreth Hall and the adjoining Essex barn, either converted or unconverted.
  • Viewing: To be arranged by prior appointment with Savills. Prospective purchasers should note that Savills take no responsibility for injury or accident at the site. Viewers visit the site at their own risk.
  • Method of sale: The development opportunity is being marketed by private treaty. In submitting offers parties should provide sufficient information to allow the vendor to assess the competence in developing these properties and it would therefore be helpful if the purchasers could provide details of other development opportunities they have been involved in.
  • Directions: From the A130 junction with Wickford join the A1245 and turn left at Rawreth traffic lights into Rawreth Lane. The entrance to the barns is approximately half a mile along this road on the right-hand side. Proceed up the track bearing left to a second gate which leads into the barns. Postcode: SS11 822
