The epitome of character, elegant accommodation and approaching one acre of truly amazing gardens,are encompassed in this Grade II listed period home, with its origins dating back to the late 1600s and steeped in local history.Located within the heart of Margaretting village, a convenient position, being accessible to Ingatestone, Shenfield and Chelmsford, yet still being within a wonderful village setting.

This home really does need to be viewed to be appreciated.   Situated behind a gated entrance which opens onto a sweeping driveway, having been carefully landscaped to ensure that the home nestles within its surroundings.   There is parking for numerous vehicles and indeed an additionalgated entrance to the side of the driveway, ensuring further opportunity, should this be required.   From here the gardens and grounds wrap around the home and the views of the surrounding Essex countryside can be seen and enjoyed.

The home welcomes you with its character façade of a splendid oak canopied entrance into what can only be described as an enchanting hallway.Its feature fireplace with log burning stove as the focal point of this reception, set the scene for the remainder of the home which unfolds from here.

To the left you enter into the "hub" of the home with the bespoke built hand painted kitchen/breakfast room with its granite work surfaces, double Range oven,integrated appliances, and natural stone tiled flooring.   This is open into a study/breakfasting area with breakfast bar and seating coupled with a convenient "wine fridge".   From here you move through to the more formal dining area, located in a beautifully designed room which is flooded with light and acts as a wonderful foil between the home and the garden.   Open again from here to the left is the second reception room, which is currently utilised as a play room, but could be an additional sitting room or cinema room.The downstairs cloakroom is again conveniently sited and includes a utility/mud room opportunity being adjacent to the exterior side door, which in turn leads across to the home office.The culmination of the ground floor, to the right of the hallway,is the sitting room which again has a feature log burning stove and is dual aspect and filled with character yet spacious.

The versatility of the home is ever present with each reception being multi-functional.   This is further highlighted by the home office/garage which, although detached from the home, is located across a walkway from the kitchen/breakfast room and even more conveniently has its own independent gated access from the front driveway.In addition to which, it also has a further accessible storage area above.   

The first floor continues in the same vain as the ground floor,steeped in character yet being practical and spacious for family living.   The master suite has a dual aspect,giving views across the gardens and the countryside beyond, as well as a modern contemporary high quality en suite shower room.

There are two further double bedrooms both able to maximise on the views available andtogether with the elegantly fitted family bathroom, completes the first floor.

As touched upon, the garden integrates seamlessly with the home, being un-overlooked and having far reaching views.   With an expansive natural stone style paved patio/entertaining area which is lit for outdoor dining and enjoys uninterrupted far reaching views over the abutting Essex countryside.   You really feel that you have escaped from the hustle and bustle of the City, yet you are only 2 miles from Ingatestone, and 6.5 miles for Shenfield and 4.5 miles from the centre of Chelmsford.

The remainder of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn although landscaped borders have been designed and located to interrupt and enhance the views, sited around the patio and along the boundaries.

It is without question a captivating position,which would be of interest throughout the seasons.

Location is paramount and combines the "best of both worlds".   A rural idyll yet only minutes from both town and country.

Access via the A12to Shenfield mainline railway station with an enviable fast service into London Liverpool Street, which will be further enhanced with the estimated completion of Crossrail in 2018/19 delivering a high frequency service to some 40 stations linking Shenfield with the likes of Reading, Heathrow and West London, should you so choose or indeed a very short drive into Ingatestone village with again its mainline rail link into London Liverpool street, of if preferred again a very short drive to Chelmsford, which now has City status and provides all the amenities linked to this.

Schooling locally is excellent also, with a Junior School in Margaretting, and both an Infants and Junior School in Ingatestone, and also the highly acclaimed Anglo European Secondary School, which offers both GCSE A levels, as well asthe European recognised International Baccalaureate, together with the renowned Grammar Schools in both Chelmsford and Colchester.   If so wished,there are ample Private schools located in Shenfield and Chelmsford, most of which provide a bus service pick up which is offered from Margaretting and Ingatestone.

One cannot emphasize enough the need to view this home to be immersed and enticed by both its location and the flexibility of the accommodation that it offers.A true gem…
