This is one of our Country Houses
Situated close to the town’s historic High Street in the golden triangle, one of Marlborough’s most desirable areas, is this six bedroom detached Edwardian house. It is set over three floors with an abundance of versatile living space, a beautiful and thoughtfully designed landscaped garden, with a private drive and double garage.
The house is approached from Back Lane onto a private drive which is lined with an avenue of silver birch trees, leads up to a double garage and offers ample parking. Dating back to 1910, the house is immaculately presented throughout with well proportioned rooms and much being made of the good natural light which highlights the high ceilings, bay windows and enhances the flexible living space. The rooms flow seamlessly from the generous entrance hall with a dining room, study/snug, excellent sitting room with a Bath stone fire surround, guest cloakroom and a kitchen/breakfast room. Of particular note is the addition of a garden room off the sitting room, an exceptional space to enjoy all aspects of the garden all year round with access to the terraces. Latterly the property was extended creating a kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a wealth of bespoke solid wood units including a central island. The adjoining family room/snug provides additional recreational space; there is also a utility room, access to the garage and a side door entrance.
On the first floor is a master bedroom suite comprising an en suite bathroom, stylish built in wardrobes, and fantastic views towards the town and countryside beyond, with three further double bedrooms and two family bathrooms. Furthermore a large secondary landing leads into a bright and airy studio/annexe, a really splendid area that offers potential for an independent living space.
The second floor has two good size double bedrooms, a shower room and large storage area. All bedrooms have delightful views over the surrounding gardens.
Felkins is situated in arguably one of the most desirable parts of the historic market town of Marlborough. This market town provides an extensive range of shopping facilities, with a twice weekly market, library, various restaurants and pubs, including the recently opened Rick Stein Restaurant and enjoys a good range of sports clubs and leisure facilities. It 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 are direct rail service to London Paddington and the South West. Additional stations can be found 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 with the Savernake Forest, Kennet and Avon Canal, and the world Heritage Sites of Avebury and Silbury Hill all nearby.
Felkins is located at the end of a private driveway flanked by an avenue of silver birch trees which provide much privacy and seclusion whilst being close to the town centre, with a landscaped garden surrounding the property. The garden has been cleverly designed and planted over the last 8 years; from the curves of the flower beds, the gradual sloping of the front lawn, the position of the summer house to the absolutely delightful woodland path; which meanders through the garden, taking in the outstanding colours, textures, fragrances and sounds of the carefully selected plants, shrubs and trees. A winding block brick path joins two sun terraces to the front and rear of the house, both with a good degree of privacy, also a neat rear lawn which in turn leads to an additional terrace, housing raised vegetable beds, a greenhouse and a useful garden shed.
