Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Grade II* Listed family house offering excellent character accommodation with potential to extend and to convert the substantial outbuildings into secondary accommodation.


The property lies about 1.5 miles north of Marlborough on the edge of the village of Ogbourne Maizey.

Marlborough, with its wide high street, offers extensive shopping and amenities including supermarkets and restaurants. The town is well known for its school and associated summer school offering a wide variety of courses.

Access to Swindon (11 miles) is easy; there is a regular train service during commuting hours taking approximately 65 minutes in to Paddington. Junction 15 of the M4 is just 7 miles away providing fast access to London and Heathrow to the East and Bristol and Bath to the West in particular.

Ogbourne Maizey is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by open down land, with good walks. There are good schools in the area particularly Marlborough College, St. Johns and Pinewood.


The property is Grade II* listed and is built of local banded sarsen stone and knapped flints with some fine architectural features including arched windows and stone mullion windows. The main façade of the house is mentioned by Pevsner as dating from the Jacobean period and there is a date stone showing 1636 over the front door.
Planning consent has been granted to re-configure the utility and rear lobby area to create a breakfast room. There is also planning consent to convert part of the outbuildings to create a cottage with 3 en suite bedrooms, sitting room, games room and playroom.

Ogbourne Maisey Manor is approached through a pair of fine Listed gates leading to a gravel sweep at the front of the house. A wrought iron gate leads to the partly walled garden. The infant River Og borders the garden to the eastern side.
The area hatched on the plan on the brochure is leasehold 99 years from 25 December 1987.

Rights of Way
There is a footpath which crosses the field to the north of the property as shown on the plan. There is a Right of Way in favour of the manor from Rectory Road to the gravelled yard to the west of the manor.
There is a Right of Way at the start of the back drive with parking for 2 cars in favour of the neighbouring property as shown on the plan.

Square Footage: 10,894 sq ft
Acreage: 8.8 Acres


From junction 15 of the M4, take the A346 south towards Marlborough for approximately 6.3 miles, passing The Silks On The Downs Restaurant and taking the next right turn for Rockley and Ogbourne Maizey. The house will shortly be seen on the left .
