Property Description

Full description

This fine and historic house with origins dating back to 1749 once formed the stables and stable master's house at the former Marshall's Wick Manor, a once impressive country estate steeped in local history.

This fine house has retained much of the original charm and period detailing indicative of its origins, with many impressive exposed beams and timbers. The property also features highly skilled joinery with beautiful doors, architraves and a stunning staircase.

There is a fully detached, self contained annexe known as 'Martynside, 58a Marshal's Drive', affording spacious and versatile accommodation for a dependent relative or an au pair, equally the annexe would work very well as a home studio, fitness suite or consulting rooms.

The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of this fine property, with mature tree and hedge screening from the road affording complete privacy. There are many substantial outbuildings and the garden is studded with fine trees.
