Development Opportunity Is Anything But Run Of The Mill

Stambridge Mill is a landmark site representing an extremely rare and very exciting chance to create a new development in a stunning Essex riverside location.

The dream of escaping to the country could become a reality, if the derelict site of Stambridge Mills is transformed into a residential development.

The hunt is on for a buyer for the 4.5 acre site overlooking the River Roach in the idyllic village of Stambridge, near Rochford. The freehold site is being offered with offers invited for the site with its existing use – or offers conditional on a planning consent should the purchaser wish to convert the land into homes.


 “This is an absolute cracker,” says Mike Gray of Thorpe Bay property consultants, Dedman Gray. “Rochford District Council has already identified Stambridge Mills as suitable for residential development and the location is unique, as the site benefits from a large river frontage.”

Mike adds; “I think a sympathetic development would be perfect, to complement the history of the site, where I believe there has been a mill since the 1800s. With the river flowing in front and farmland all around, it’s certainly a lovely, picturesque setting.  Not only that but you have some super pubs in the village, a great little primary school and its own football team. Nearby Rochford is an attractive, historic town, which is home to a selection of cafes, restaurants and local shops.”

Southend is also just a short drive away and offers all that can be associated with a lively, large and thriving conurbation, including excellent primary and secondary schools. The A127 and A13 connect the area with other key towns in Essex and London. Rochford train station is also nearby, offering services into London within an hour.

London Southend Airport is an award-winning gateway to many destinations in Europe and is less than fifteen minutes away by car.
