Set behind a covered gated porch lies a very interesting and beautiful former and now converted chapel. This historic detached house offers so much in the way of character whilst benefitting from beautifully high ceilings and tall window openings. The main drawing room has an attractive bay window to the front and wood burning stove down one end which usefully helps to divide this impressive room. A gothic arched door with cross opens into the adjoining sleek modern kitchen which can also be accessed off the hallway. Contemporary units and clever hidden colourful lighting all adds to the appeal. Every inch has been designed to make creative use of the space, the utility room is a superb extension to the kitchen and the glazed roof encourages natural light to flood both here and the beautifully appointed shower room. There is access to the courtyard.

On the first floor the high ceilings continue and light from the southerly aspect landing window cascades in. The master bedroom has an array of built in wardrobes and a bay window, there are two further bedrooms and a smaller fourth bedroom/study as well as a stylish family bathroom with separate bath and shower.

All these factors combined with the modern twist make this a great opportunity to acquire a superb family home in this desirable town.

Situation

This wonderful home is just a short walk from both Marlborough High Street and Marlborough Common where there are leisure facilities including the Golf Club, Tennis Club and Rugby Club. The historic market town provides an extensive range of shopping facilities, a twice weekly market, a library, various restaurants and pubs and enjoys a good range of clubs and leisure facilities. The town is well served with excellent schools including Marlborough College, St John's Academy, Dauntsey's and St. Francis. Marlborough is well located for access to the M4 (junction 15 about 10 miles) and the commercial centre of Swindon is about 12 miles, from which there is a regular rail service to London Paddington and the South West. There are additional stations in Pewsey and Great Bedwyn, (both about 7 miles). The countryside surrounding Marlborough is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers good walking, cycling and leisure opportunities including the nearby famous 'West Woods' at Lockeridge known for their bluebells, Savernake Forest and Avon and Kennet Canal.

Outside

Off the conservatory there is a wondeful walled courtyard with terracotta quarry tiled floor ideal for summer dining with climbing flowers which bring colour and scent. There is a useful timber shed with log store and side access back around to the front.
