Marbles is a very pretty period property, originally three cottages dating from the 1750s and listed Grade II - 'of special architectural or historic interest'. The property has recently been the subject of careful and sympathetic refurbishment by the current owners, resulting in a beautifully appointed home; retaining a number of character features with all the comfort of modern fixtures and fittings. Points of note include a wealth of exposed timbers, original wooden framed windows, a bespoke, handmade kitchen and modern bathroom suites with Fired Earth tiling.


The characterful accommodation is arranged over two floors:

- The front door opens to the reception hall/music room, which has oak flooring and a feature fireplace with carved wooden surround.
- Double aspect drawing room, with oak floor and French doors opening to the rear garden. Handsome inglenook fireplace with inset woodburning stove. Turned staircase rising to the first floor, with under stair access to the cellar.
- Lying off the drawing room is a cosy sitting room with fitted bookshelving and one of three original front doors. Adjoining study.
- Dining room with oak floor, brick fireplace with marble surround and the third of the three original front doors. A door opens from the dining room to the inner hall, from where the secondary staircase rises to the first floor.
- Beyond the hall and dining room are the kitchen and separate breakfast room. The kitchen is superbly appointed with a range of bespoke, handmade units and central island, complemented by granite worktops, an inset double butler sink and tiled floor. Two oven oil-fired Rayburn range oven, additional Gourmet oven, integrated Bosch dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer. A stable door opens to the rear garden and there is access to a cloakroom with WC.
- There are two staircases rising to the first floor landing, off which lie the five bedrooms.
- Generous master bedroom and en suite bathroom with tiled floor, part tiled walls and white suite comprising a bath with wall mounted shower over, pedestal basin and WC.
- There are four further bedrooms, all with built in storage cupboards. One of the bedrooms has a pretty cast iron feature fireplace and a large, eaves storage cupboard.
- Spacious family bathroom with wooden floor, part tiled walls and suite including a freestanding, roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. Airing cupboard housing a MegaFlow hot water tank.

Marbles is approached via a brick pathway, which leads to a pretty vaulted porch and front door. The path is flanked by well-tended lawn, bounded to the front by wrought iron railings with a central gate. To the north western side of the house is a driveway and parking area, which in turn leads to the detached double garage. The garage has an electrically operated up and over door and rafter storage space.

There is a gated pedestrian access to the south facing rear garden, which is predominately laid to lawn, well enclosed by mature hedging and trees and with a brick paved terrace lying adjacent to the rear of the house.

In all, about 0.34 of an acre.
