A delightfully refurbished 4 bedroom family house within walking distance of the High Street.
Marlborough is a thriving and expanding market town with excellent local shopping including some of the major retailers. National retailers include Waitrose supermarket and several quality restaurants including Rick Stein’s, Dans, Pizza Express, ASK, Costa Coffee and Nero. In addition there are the shopping areas in Hilliers Yard (near Waitrose) and Hughenden Yard (between Boots and W H Smith). The leisure centre and golf club provide excellent sporting facilities too. Although
self-sufficient, the town is well placed for other centres including Swindon, Bath, Hungerford and Newbury and is surrounded by the most attractive countryside of the Marlborough Downs, Pewsey Vale and Kennet Valley. Intercity (Paddington) rail and M4 connections are at both Swindon and Hungerford.
The property is in the catchment area for St. John’s School, Marlborough.
Originally built in 1972, 2 Van Diemens Close has been the subject of significant renovation including an extension in 1990 and re-modelling in 2014 to give a modern spacious open plan kitchen/diner. Traditionally built of red brick under a tiled roof relieved by UPVC windows, it offers generous family accommodation and is within easy walking distance of the High Street and amenities. The
large, light sitting room leads onto the kitchen diner which has double doors that open to the landscaped rear garden.
The separate dining room on the ground floor could lend itself to a variety of uses, and the clever design through the utility room links the dining room and kitchen. Notable are the large full-length windows, fitted in the dining and sitting rooms with plantation shutters. The whole property is decorated in stylish neutral tones. The upstairs accommodation comprises 4 good sized bedrooms.
The Master bedroom has a stunning vaulted ceiling and an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 benefits from a full range of fitted cupboards. As part of the 2014 work, a new combi-boiler and kitchen was installed, together with integrated appliances. In 2015 the downstairs cloakroom, utility and family bathroom were refurbished. The sitting room is newly carpeted, whilst the kitchen floor is a hard-wearing Karndean.
The house is approached off Van Diemens Close which is a small no-through road, which runs alongside the open spaces surrounding the new St Mary’s Marlborough Primary School (opening Sept 2017). The driveway has space for 2 cars. The front and rear gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with attractive border planting, and hedging provides privacy in the rear garden. A patio area off the kitchen and a raised terrace at the far end of the rear garden give maximum opportunity to catch evening sun. The brick built shed tucked away at the end of the garden provides useful outside storage.
