Guide Price £1,500,000 4 Bedroom Detached House Ref: 58892_26924715
A remarkable village home of 3,300 sq ft nestled within mature grounds extending to circa 1.3 acres, tucked away in a private position within the conservation area and offering superb potential to enlarge/re-model the existing dwelling to in excess of 5,000 sq ft, subject to a formal planning application (see artist's impression as an example illustration).
The grounds are exceptional, commencing with an approach road of circa 200 metres from Wantz Road, opening in to a large driveway leading up to the property, which is set back prominently on the plot. The property is enclosed by mature borders offering immense privacy, and enjoys a wide selection of established trees and shrubs. There is also an attractive pond to the corner of the plot, creating a wonderful focal point.
Privately commissioned in the 1970's, the property is constructed to a superb standard, offering a remarkable foundation for development and modernisation. The house offers superb proportions, including an impressive 30ft hallway with feature staircase, connecting to three/four reception rooms plus a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, boot room and ground floor shower room/wc. The first floor provides a spacious galleried landing giving access to four large bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom suite is enhanced by an en-suite and dressing room.
Each principal room enjoys beautiful views of the gardens and any future development would embrace the position of the property within the plot. This is a property that feels special immediately upon arrival, somewhere you can instantly feel at home.
Margaretting is surrounded by a wealth of Green Belt, farmland and woodland, and the area retains a distinctly rural atmosphere despite its convenient location between Ingatestone and Chelmsford. Neighbouring Ingatestone offers regular mainline rail services to London Liverpool Street in under 30 minutes.
