Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi launched entertainment broadcasting over 100 years ago from the world’s first wireless factory in Chelmsford, Essex. Now the site is set to become a coveted new residential address, with 437 homes for the digital era.

Listed parts of the plant built in 1912 — including a water tower, power house, factory façade and cottages — remain and are being refurbished into offices, while new houses and apartments are being built in the eight-acre grounds.

Marconi chose Chelmsford, recently upgraded to city status, because of its proximity to London and good rail links. The same combination is certain to tempt home-buying commuters. Prices from £175,000. Call Bellway on 01245 259989.
