£725,000· Detached Bungalow (For Sale)


Melita is situated along Witham Road in the conservation hamlet of Langford. It is approximately 3.7 miles from Hatfield Peverel which has a train station, a direct line to London Liverpool Street, and great access to the A12. Schools and shops are readily available in the nearby town of Maldon, which offers both national and local independent retailers. Maldon is a market town, at the head of a tidal estuary, steeped in maritime history, and is popular with families because of facilities like the Hythe Quay (pubs, Thames Barges, and sailing) and Promenade Park (lake, playing fields etc).


Melita is an individual detached property, built by the owner and his late wife, that has been extended over time from a three-bedroom bungalow by the addition of a conservatory and games room, and more recently an atrium and annex with a studio/office above, to create vast and unique accommodation of about 2200 sqft floor area. The property sits on an overall plot that measures about 0.79 acres, isn’t over-looked, faces southeast, and includes a single garage, a driveway for multiple cars, and vehicle access to the meadow at the rear where there is a large barn, a big summerhouse and a vegetable plot with greenhouse. With the various extensions and grounds, it is fair to say that the property is very versatile and has huge potential for a large family, multi-generation living, or working at home.


From the front archway and patio, the entrance hall gives access to all the main rooms. There are three double bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a separate WC. The north double bedroom has a dressing room and an ensuite shower room, the dressing room also has access to the atrium which has French doors to the garden. The atrium can also be accessed via the central bedroom and gives access to the annex which has its own shower room and French doors to the garden courtyard. Stairs from the atrium lead up to the first-floor office/studio. The south bedroom has access to the conservatory and thereby to the games room, which also has an external entrance. Accessed from the entrance hall, the open-plan lounge and dining room are L-shaped and adjoin the kitchen at the front of the property with a great view of the Church across the road. The kitchen also has a main door to the front patio entrance gate and archway.
