Lexbury Hall is a rarity in any market place.
Constructed in 2001, the original architectural brief was to create a superb family home with excellent entertaining ability, in a classic period style. The architects, Stuart Martin architects, were fastidious with the attention to detail throughout and passionate about the use of quality, sympathetic materials. The design was based on a similar early 18th century house and offers an exceptional entertaining space with various inter linking ground floor rooms creating a wonderful party house but also a manageable family home.
The exterior is dressed in handmade bricks, with limestone mortar and traditional, double glazed sash windows, offering the best of old world charm with modern conveniences. The house retains a sense of fun and has great light with its plethora of windows. The volume of rooms is also excellent as the majority of door and ceiling heights are oversized.
The principle reception rooms, both drawing room and dining room are linked with discrete doors as well as back to back fire places and are both double aspect rooms with exceptional south and west facing windows. The south elevation of the house encompasses the heart of the home; the kitchen, with its bespoke fitted units and central island as well as the adjacent bar room, all enjoying excellent access to the south facing patio. The sitting room with its vaulted ceiling and glazed roof light has a relaxed feel.
The house is well backed up with generous and well fitted library / study and an exceptional boot room with access from the side parking area. The bedroom accommodation is split over two floors. The owners wanted to create a family floor on the first floor and have incorporated a luxury master suite, three further bedrooms and three further bathrooms. To accommodate their guests they created two ground floor bedrooms which utilise a large bathroom in an independent area of the house, this is ideal for long stay guests.
The house was as much about internal uses as it was about external entertainment and the link with the pool and pool house is superb via a beautifully landscaped ornamental garden. The pool is of a south westerly orientation and has a recently overhauled automatic, child safe cover. Again it is completely private and the adjacent pool house has external speakers to enjoy the party atmosphere.
The pool house was designed to mirror the aesthetics of the main house, with handmade bricks and a discrete roof and is utilised either as a further entertainment area or as independent accommodation suitable for a variety of guests. It is largely open plan with a well stocked kitchen, bathroom and a generous bedroom.
The property is situated on the edge of the well regarded village of Manton some 2.2 miles from the busy market town of Marlborough. It offers a truly rural position and the views are both extensive and far-reaching. Manton itself has a well regarded public house, The Outside Chance, which takes centre stage in the village. Marlborough is a busy market town with weekly markets and a good selection of shops including Waitrose and a number of boutiques, as well as a number of restaurants, pubs and cafes. This area is much sough after due to its links with Marlborough College. It also offers superb access to London with a choice of Pewsey or Great Bedwyn offering high speed trains to London Paddington, as well as the M4 motorway which can be joined at Junction 15. The surrounding countryside of Wiltshire remains a strongly rural part of the UK with excellent walks, riding and sporting activities.
The owner has a keen interest in horses and has created good facilities incorporating an independent access completely separate from the house which in turn leads to stable block with nine loose boxes, generous tack room and further facilities. This in turn leads to the pasture land.
On the other side of the property you will find the two garage complexes of oak construction. They offer a number of garages, open sided as well as enclosed, further store rooms and plant room which contains the private bore hole supplying water to the main property.
The current owner has recently received pre-application approval for a detached lodge house in the grounds discretely situated and to incorporate a three bedroom detached house ideal for independent relatives or live in staff. They also have planning permission for a tennis court in an existing area of the garden which will complement the pool complex.
In total the property offers approximately 12 acres of ring fenced land. Landscaped and mature gardens surround the house and overlook the remainder of land which is laid to pasture and fenced on all sides. There are no foot paths or rights of way across the land and there are good access points for heavy machinery, horse boxes etc.
