Flat for sale in West Station Yard, Spital Road, Maldon CM9
Background and history A superb three bedroom ground floor apartment situated in a charming former Victorian industrial Granary located alongside the River Chelmer. The complex is a private gated development, converted some 25 years ago. The property has more recently been tenanted and is available with no onward chain.
The Granaries lie either side of their own pontoon moorings, allowing occupants to moor one craft up to 24' in length. The Apartment is one of only two in this part of the Granaries on the ground floor that provides comfortable and atmospheric modern living space within the old shell of the waterside industrial building. The Apartment faces east/west and from the external communal grounds there are spectacular dawns looking across the marsh and downriver to Heybridge Basin and Northey Island and equally spectacular sunsets as the sun falls behind the Fullbridge and Maldon upriver.
The owners of the Apartments have collectively purchased the Freehold of the complex and have set up their own Management to oversee maintenance of the Common Parts. The current charge per Apartment is £2500.00 per annum. The grounds are kept in good order, the paintwork being renewed on a rolling three year programme. In recent years the River Authority have renewed and strengthened the sea wall in front of the Development. The provision of a tidal mooring allows ease of access to the local waterways of The Blackwater and the East Anglian Coast
