An incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed farmhouse and four fixer-upper Essex barns has arisen in Blackmore, as the gorgeous properties will be sold via auction later this month.

Set amidst a courtyard-type setting backing onto open greenbelt land, Quince Hall Farm is a mews of dilapidated buildings dating back to 1750. If you are a countryside lover looking for a project, then these breathtaking barns within 4.8 acres of land are just for you.

Essex barn conversions are hard to come by, according to the estate agent, with just 21 listed across the country.

"This is a very rare opportunity indeed for a canny developer to corner the market in Essex barns and to resurrect this mews into something very special and desirable, as our computer-generated images fully highlight," Mike Gray, Managing Director of Dedman Gray, says.

"I cannot recall the last time that a collective of such properties were offered for sale and accordingly we expect a lot of interest on the day."

The quintet of properties sit close to the border of Brentwood and Chelmsford, right in the heart of the glorious rolling countryside. Each building has planning permission for conversion and refurbishment, giving prospective buyers the chance to revamp them as they wish. You might need a little imagination to make your dreams a reality, but we imagine the barns will look stunning once completed.

Tempted to put down an offer? Auction agents Dedman Gray are offering the development opportunity as a single lot with a guide price of between £2 million and £2.25 million. Due to the pandemic, the barns will be sold via auction online through their website on Wednesday 17th February at 2pm.
