Full description

Marchfield House is a handsome detached Georgian house offering flexible and spacious accommodation over three floors as well as a wonderful garden. The style of the house gives the feeling of country living, yet within easy reach of the city centre, making it the perfect family home.

The private driveway opens up to the large parking area in front of the house. From here, you get an immediate impression of the style of the house and the beautiful architecture. The front door opens in to the central hall, which gives access to the main living accommodation on the ground floor. Running the full depth of the house is the glorious drawing room, originally built as a music room. The proportions are on a grand scale and the room is ideally suited for entertaining. The high ceiling is combined with huge windows, which flood the room with light, as well as a pretty Adam fireplace.

To the front of the house, further entertaining space is provided by the dining room and family sitting room. Both rooms have a lovely cosy atmosphere, with sash windows and handsome fireplaces. To the rear of the house is the kitchen, which connects to the breakfast/living area. The kitchen features an Aga as well as ample storage. The breakfast/living room incorporates extensive glass, offering a lovely view of the garden and bringing excellent natural light in to the house. Subject to the usual planning consents, there is potential to open up the kitchen and breakfast/living room to create a large open plan space. Also on the ground floor is a good sized study, utility room and a WC.

An attractive, original stone, curved staircase leads to the first floor and the master bedroom. This room is a lovely size with south and east facing windows, ensuring plenty of light. The room features an en suite bathroom with his and hers sinks. Also on this floor are two further double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes, and the family bathroom with separate bath and shower units.

The curved staircase continues to the second floor, which provides further bedroom accommodation, ideally suited to families with children. There are three double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as the children's snug, and a bathroom.

Outside there is a lovely garden. The main lawn is west facing and is lined with mature trees and shrubs. There is also a sunny terrace for outside dining. There is an outside garden store/coal shed, with a WC. There is ample parking to the front and side of the house.
