Full description

Dating from the early 19th Century, Coval Lodge
is a fine example of Regency architecture which
developed as a reaction to the more formal and
symmetrical earlier Georgian style. The house can
be regarded as a design of John Adey Repton, son of the famous landscape designer, Humphery Repton, who lived and practiced from Springfield
in Chelmsford from 1818 until 1860.

This beautiful and imposing family home offers
light and spacious accommodation which radiates
on a formal basis from a substantial entrance hall.
To the ground floor there are five principal reception rooms which are elegantly proportioned, retaining many features of the period including exposed floorboards, fireplaces, high ceilings with cornicing whilst enjoying masses of natural light from the large sash windows; of particular note are the Gothic Revival French windows with wooden shutters.

The kitchen currently opens out into the garden
room, conservatory and newly converted family
room; however, the new owner may consider
extending the kitchen out into this space, to bring it into 21st century living.

Three of the bedrooms and the family bathroom
reside on the ground floor, whilst two further
bedrooms with en-suite facilities are situated on
the first floor.

Accessed by the utility room is the extensive cellar; currently set out as five storage rooms yet offers multitudes of potential.

Coval Lodge sits half a mile to the west of the city centre; an ideal spot for London commuters. Chelmsford offers a broad range of commercial,
entertainment and shopping amenities together
with its railway station providing a regular service to London Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of 35 minutes.

The property is well placed for road links with the A131 Essex Regiment Way to the north providing access to the A12 at Chelmsford and the A120 at Dunmow, linking in with the extensive motorway network of southeast England. Stansted Airport, about 17.8 miles to the north caters for domestic flights and international destinations.

The county of Essex is distinguished by its open
undulating farmland and provides a broad range
of leisure pursuits; including a number of local
golf clubs and the Essex coast offering extensive
walks, bird watching and sailing.

The property is situated within a private turning
off Maltese Road, benefiting from a great deal of privacy and seclusion. The well-manicured and mature grounds, extends to over ½ an acre, displaying a variety of mature trees with shrubs, herbaceous borders and flower beds. The gardens display expanses of lawn lying to both the front and rear. Within the gardens are the double garage and a garden room; both of which have power and light.
