History - Originally purchased by two brothers who wanted to build two, three bedroomed semi detached houses for their families, side by side. Shortly after completing the purchase another plot came available in the town so they ended up helping each other build completely detached properties. Over the years three kids arrived and in 1976 they thought a swimming pool would be just the ticket and as you can guess, The Bungalow became the hub of Marlborough life for years thereafter. The family grew, but mum and dad stayed, loving the bungalow till the day they died. As you can see by the site plan the plot is a very good size, just under 1/3rd acre, with far reaching views to the rear. The bungalow today need either complete updating and enlarging or if more desirable, demolishing and redeveloped, subject to all usual permissions. I was fortunate enough to sell a similar bungalow at the top of Cold Harbour Lane which was demolished and two four bedroomed detached houses built on the site.

The Accommodation - We walk under the front porch into a hall. Door left into a good sized sitting dining room with original fireplace. Back into the hall and left into the kitchen breakfast room with lovely views to the rear and door into a lean to utility room, store room and door into the single garage. Back through the kitchen and next left is the bathroom (classic 1950's design!), third bedroom, a single bedroom with window and door to the rear. Next the second bedroom, a small double with window to the rear and built in wardrobes. Finally back along the hall and left into the main bedroom, a large double with bay window to the front and built in wardrobes.

Outside, Parking, Garage And Gardens - A driveway leads to the garage with hard- standing to the side, parking for 4+ cars. Greenhouse to the side of the garage and there is also one built onto the end of the house on the other side.
Single garage. Metal up and over door, overhead storage, door to the utility room & separate toilet.
