Are you house hunting in and around the Maldon area?

Our Property of the Week feature highlights homes currently on the market with award-winning estate agent and Maldon Nub News exclusive property sponsor Temme English.

This week, we are featuring this quirky Grade II listed five-bedroom detached home, which lies in the beautiful village of Purleigh and is just a five-minute drive from Maldon.

5-bedroom detached home on Chelmsford Road, Rudley Green, Purleigh - £950,000

This award-winning and wonderfully quirky, Grade II listed detached family home provides its new owners with the opportunity to make it an exceptionally special place.

In 2004, it was sympathetically converted and restored to such a standard that, in 2006, it won Maldon District Council's Conservation and Design Award.

Surrounded by three acres of land, the house is ideal for those looking for an equestrian space and has five original bedrooms upstairs.

With an abundance of quirky features including multiple fireplaces, uneven floors, original beams alongside original sash windows and a large wood burning stove, it provides the perfect backdrop for those looking for a one-of-a-kind property.

The garden is split for multiple uses, beginning with a paved patio which leads to the landscaped garden. Beyond that, you will find the remainder of the near three acre plot. There is additional access from spa lane via double gates that open up to the detached three bay weatherboarded cart lodge.

Purleigh is a beautiful village surrounded by hills, and is convenient for all local amenities including New Hall Vineyards.

It is within 10 miles of Chelmsford and just over a 5-minute drive into Maldon.
