Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located within walking distance of the popular market town of Marlborough, stands this impressive former mid nineteenth century school house conversion. The accommodation is light and airy and beyond the oak cathedral front door there is a welcoming entrance hall which sets the scene and leads to both the drawing room and the main vaulted open plan sitting room which is the hub of the house. A central wood burner creates a focal point as well as heating the property; underfoot herring bone wooden parquet flooring creates a nice flow to the space which is versatile in nature and the split level galleried staircase all adds to the drama. The raised kitchen has been fully remodelled and is fitted with a range of shaker style units with solid walnut work tops and integral Neff appliances. There is an adjoining dining area and a useful utility room. Stairs from the main reception room lead to a galleried landing which accesses both the master bedroom suite with stylish redesigned ensuite bathroom and built in wardrobes on one side and study/guest bedroom on the other. In addition, a glazed garden room connects a small enclosed gravel courtyard which boasts fully stocked retained flower beds and the main rear garden which has been thoughtfully designed to make the most of this private area.
Also located on the ground floor to the front of the building is an inner hall with staircase which ascends to two characterful bedrooms which are serviced by a beautiful ground floor family bathroom with a separate shower and bath. There is a drawing room which offers flexible reception accommodation and has a staircase to a bedroom with built in wardrobes and views to the front.


Herd Street is situated towards the eastern outskirts of the town and yet is within easy walking distance of the town centre. The old market town of Marlborough provides an extensive array of amenities including a twice weekly market, a public library, a leisure centre with an indoor swimming pool and various pubs and restaurants. Marlborough is well located for access to the M4 motorway (junction 15 about 10 miles) and the expanding commercial centre of Swindon (about 12 miles) from which there is a regular Intercity rail service to London Paddington (about 55 minutes). The countryside surrounding the town is designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


The rear garden has an extensive paved terrace which makes it ideal for al fresco dining with steps which lead up to a raised lawned garden. A column pond and many climbing plants make this a space to relax, unwind and enjoy the surroundings and a gate with pathway leads to two off road parking spaces.
