A detached Edwardian family house with excellent accommodation and enjoying a large garden in a most sought after area of Marlborough
Barnfield House is an imposing Edwardian family house, located to the East of the town and within walking distance of the town centre. Marlborough is a thriving and expanding market town with excellent local shopping including some of the major retailers. National retailers include Waitrose and Tesco’s supermarkets and several quality restaurants including Coles, Godots, Pizza Express, ASK and Costa Coffee. In addition there are the shopping areas in Hilliers Yard and Hughenden Yard. The leisure centre and golf club provide excellent sporting facilities. 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. Rail (Paddington) and M4 connections are at both Swindon and Hungerford.
Barnfield House is a most attractive and impressive family house, constructed in the 1920’s with later additions and comprising a white rendered façade under a slate tiled roof relieved by impressive large pane sash windows. The property offers flexible accommodation over three floors, with all rooms enjoying high ceilings, and retaining much of the period look and feel.
The stylishly presented living accommodation feeds from a central hallway, approached from a small porch. A gracious double aspect sitting room has an Edwardian style fireplace, whilst a newly installed bespoke kitchen with an adjoining utility room hosts a range of wall and floor units with granite surfaces. There is a large breakfast area and a family room leading from it enjoying views out onto the garden. In addition there is a beautifully appointed dining room, which leads into the magnificent Amdega conservatory. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with ensuite, 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor there are two additional bedrooms, a bathroom and a large landing space offering the opportunity for a gym area or extra study.
The house is approached via Chopping Knife Lane, over a gravelled driveway, to a double garage with adjoining workshop. There are well planted gardens to the front, with a raised lawn accessed by steps. The rear garden is private, being fully enclosed by high hedging. It has a large paved terrace, ideal for entertaining, and steps down to the lawn, which is bordered by mature shrubs and well stocked borders.
