Full description

An impressive seven bedroom early Georgian country home commanding delightful views on the outskirts of the historic maritime town of Maldon. The property is set in superb south facing gardens which extend to approximately 1 acre incorporating a swimming pool with an additional 7 acre field. There are a range of outbuildings providing garaging, workshop and storage facilities in addition to a former agricultural barn with consent for independent residential conversion.

Sparrow Wycke Farm is a classically designed unlisted building which dates back to the mid 1740's and extended during the Victorian era to create a wonderful family home with accommodation totalling around 3600 Sq.ft. This characterful family house provides flexible accommodation and well-proportioned rooms over three floors with an unconverted basement level.

A central door case with feature columns opens to a small entrance lobby providing access to the house. There are three reception rooms including an impressive formal dining room with ornate fireplace and double doors opening onto the south facing terrace and gardens beyond. There is a bright and spacious double aspect family room to the west corner of the house providing an attractive redbrick inglenook fireplace and side double doors. An inner hall provides a turning staircase to the upper floors and basement along with access to a comfortable breakfast room. To the rear of the house a delightful kitchen which is very much heart of the home and previously featured in '25 beautiful kitchens' magazine. The bespoke kitchen has been fitted with a beautiful range of hand crafted units with granite work surfaces and a central breakfast/informal dining bar. Orientated to capture the views of the garden and day and evening sun is a wonderful 'L' shaped garden room with glazed elevations and three sets of doors opening onto the gardens.

To the first floor there is a spacious family bathroom and four bedrooms including the master suite which occupies the majority of the south section with views of the gardens exploited by its dual aspect. There is a spacious en suite bathroom incorporating shower facilities. To the second floor there are the remaining three bedrooms and a bathroom offering an ideal situation for an au pair. All of the bedrooms are double rooms with bedrooms six and seven currently being used as a games room and gym.
