The predominant building style is Georgian but there are a number of houses dating from Tudor and Stuart times. There is convenient access to the M4, with junction 18 within 4 miles. This vibrant village offers a perfect combination of modern convenience with traditional rural living. Amenities include three public houses, a general store (with deli counter), post office, butcher, newsagent, vet, doctors surgery, two garages, church, tea shop, hair salon, community centre and a well regarded primary school.

Description

The Gables is a Grade II listed building dating from the 17th century that is situated within the heart of the village of Marshfield.

Constructed of coursed rubble with freestone dressings under a Cotswold stone slate roof, the property features 3 stone gables and stone mullion windows. The accommodation has been carefully restored over recent years by the current owners with great care and attention to detail. The property is beautifully presented with contemporary convenience and style combined with many period features including ceiling beams, feature fireplaces, panelling and wooden flooring.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 storeys and upon entry there is a panelled hallway that leads to a spacious beamed sitting room with two feature fireplaces, one with a wood burner. The room is light and airy with 2 sets of windows overlooking the High Street. To the rear is a luxurious kitchen/dining room that has direct access to the wonderful courtyard/sun terrace and the garden beyond. The Neptune kitchen incorporates a wide range of appliances along with a boiling water tap, LED lighting and 2 large larder cupboards and there is under floor heating.

On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms, 2 single rooms and a shower room. One double bedroom is currently being used as a study and has stairs to the overhead loft room that provides storage/additional space. On the second floor is a striking master bedroom suite with an en suite wet room/bathroom. Period features combine with contemporary convenience, with gabled ceiling beams overhead and under floor heating. There is also access from the hallway to the cellar. This is tanked and is currently being used as a wine cellar but could provide space for an additional family room or children's playroom.

OUTSIDE
The rear garden is accessed through the kitchen/dining room, with an attractive courtyard/ sun terrace immediately beyond, which is sheltered by wisteria-clad walls and mature shrubs. Feature lighting is installed to maximise the benefit of this wonderful space that provides an ideal spot for al fresco dining and entertaining. Over the courtyard is a detached single storey outbuilding that provides an office and a utility room, and there is also a useful log store.

Beyond the courtyard garden is large level garden that is enclosed by dry stone walls and laid mainly to lawn that meanders around established mature borders and shrubs. The garden incorporates a number of trees including fig, apple, pear, cherry and magnolia and at the far end is a delightful sun terrace. Adjacent to this is the charming 'The Little Gables', a Grade II listed playhouse designed to matching the features of the main home. It has 2 floors and is fitted with electrics, a TV point and a telephone point. From the garden there is also access to Back Lane, which runs parallel to the High Street.
