Full descriptionWe believe Eweland Hall dates back to the early Victorian period. The original façade was altered during the 1880s with the addition of two bay windows. In the last few decades, the house has been sympathetically restored with the aid of historical consultant, Patricia Stewart. The house is arranged over two storeys with all the principal reception rooms and grand staircase accessible from the impressive reception hall. The notable drawing room has a feature bay window offering stunning views across the landscaped gardens. Glass fronted open fires with floor draw grates are to be found in both the drawing room and dining room. French doors with replacement glazing feature in the well-proportioned dining room. Additional accommodation on the ground floor comprises a third reception room, kitchen and cloakroom.
The grand return staircase leads to a wine store at the return point. The gallery landing provides access to the Master Bedroom with its en suite dressing room and bathroom. Three further bedrooms and the recently modernised family bathroom suite. Loft access is available from this point which is an extremely useable space.
The village of Margaretting is set within the rural and unspoilt countryside of Essex forming part of the metropolitan greenbelt. Eweland Hall is only two miles north of Ingatestone with its mainline railway station providing a 30 minute service to London's Liverpool Street. Ingatestone has a vibrant independent high street with local shops, pubs and restaurants as well as a post office and the well-known Anglo-European school within the area. The City of Chelmsford is 4.6 miles away and offers easy access to the A12 at Junction 15. The City of Chelmsford provides a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and excellent schooling in the state and private sectors.
Margaretting is of medieval origin and sits astride the Roman road between London, Chelmsford and Colchester. The historical doomsday map of 1873 shows the addition of several large houses including Eweland Hall, Park Lodge, Bishops Court, Firs Hill and Ivory Hill. Over the last several decades planning policies have severely restricted development in this conservation area.
The main approach to Eweland Hall is from a secluded mature tree lined driveway. The formal gardens to the front and side of the house are mainly laid to lawn but offer a huge variety of mature trees, shrubs and flowers. Located within the gardens, there is a heated swimming pool with external shower room and a number of outbuilding including a double garage and workshop. A portion of the garden offers an access strip to Penny Lane.
