About this property

  • Coppers is beautifully situated within a pretty leafy lane between the villages of Margaretting and Ingatestone, occupying a mature plot of about 1.2 acres. Available for the first time since construction in 1962, this is a property with great potential.

    The accommodation extends to over 3,600 sq ft, now in need of modernisation, offering great possibilities. From a spacious hallway to the light-filled reception and bedrooms, the house has been designed and orientated to overlook the beautiful gardens.

    Three generous reception rooms, including a garden room conservatory, overlook the gardens to the south. The kitchen/breakfast room lies at the rear of the house, overlooking the pool. Adjacent is a utility room, and double and single integral garages. The garages offer the potential for further accommodation or an annexe, subject to the necessary consents required. On the first floor are up to five bedrooms with an additional ground floor bedroom/study. The principal bedroom suite occupies the front corner of the house, with en suite bathroom and fitted dressing room. A family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms.

    A 50m long drive culminates with a circular parking area around a mature oak tree. There is access into a double and single garage. The gardens have been designed to provide all-year colour and interest. Swathes of lawns are bordered by matures beds and hedgerows. Terraces are situated to the side and rear of the house providing outside spaces for dining in the summer months. Behind the house is an enclosed garden containing a kidney-shaped pool and pool house. Occupying the front portion of the gardens is an enclosed tennis court
    There is also a garden shed and the solar panels at the property are utilised to heat the pool with a heat exchange pump – there is a feed-in tariff for the solar panels.

    Mains water, electricity, and drainage. Oil-fired central heating. 16 solar panels (feed in tariff).

Margaretting is a small village with a pub, the Red Lion, and a primary school. I love the convenience of the village, sandwiched between Ingatestone, Chelmsford city and the A12.
