Introduction - No. 1 Marton House is one of the signature homes in this popular Warwickshire village and was originally constructed in 1750 and illustrates many striking Georgian features synonymous with the period. It has an interesting history and in Victorian times it was purchased by a surgeon, and for 85 years the house remained a Doctors Surgery for the community up until 1960. Subsequently the house now forms an attractive family home with five bedrooms, one en-suite, a family bathroom, a study, formal dining room, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and a conservatory, which overlooks the delightful gardens. The gardens are a principal feature and add to the extensive plot of 0.74 acres and are situated adjacent to open fields, providing a stunning rural environment. Part of the garden is currently dedicated to keeping chickens and provides a wonderful opportunity to create a super outdoor lifestyle, particularly for youngsters. Within the plot is a gated parking area, with a double garage and several useful outbuildings including a large useful workshop, which could supply a perfect environment for a vehicle enthusiast. Early inspection is strongly recommended.
