The Malting House is an imposing Grade II Listed Georgian residence situated in the heart of the sought after village of Marshfield. Behind the handsome façade is a very impressive building incorporating an extremely spacious four bedroom family home, a blank canvas first floor apartment (requiring refurbishment) and a separate three bedroom top floor apartment. As one of the most significant buildings in the village, Hamptons International is delighted to bring this unique opportunity to market. The Malting House needs to be appreciated in person to view both the existing space and potential of its over 5000 sq.ft. living accommodation. The family accommodation currently comprises the ground and over half of the first floor. The private entrance hall leads to two attractive front reception rooms; the drawing room has retained its corniced ceiling and sash windows with working shutters and a central fireplace, with the music room benefitting from similar period features. There is a further ground floor sitting room and a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room. A major feature of the house is the kitchen/dining area which extends over 30 ft. long with a beautifully restored floor to ceiling “malting oven” presiding over the room. This is a wonderful space for family living and entertaining with two stable doors providing access directly out to the private walled courtyard garden. With a rear staircase leading to the first floor, a generous hallway and landing area gives on to three bedrooms, all extremely well-proportioned, two with full height exposed A-frame beam ceilings and the master bedroom including a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The three interlinking front rooms of the first floor form a separate potential apartment with three double sash windows looking out across the countryside. This section of the house offers a blank canvas to design and refurbish as you wish, either incorporating to the principal house or updating as a stand alone apartment for guests, separate office work space or a self-contained apartment for rental income. The front stone staircase to the house leads to a privately accessed second storey apartment with its three front rooms (including en-suite) all benefitting from wonderful views; there are two further rooms to the rear, together with a kitchen and bathroom. The house is suited to a huge variety of uses and a tour is highly recommended to fully appreciate its potential to suit diverse accommodation needs – or indeed to reinstate the whole house to its former glory as a grand village home.
Marshfield is a highly sought after village approximately eight miles north of Bath and also benefitting from easy access to Bristol and Chippenham either via the A420 or the M4 Motorway. The unspoilt High Street is made up of predominantly period homes and essential amenities such as central stores, post office, butchers, Sweetapples tea room, newsagents and a pretty furniture and design shop. There is a popular primary school which was re-built just a few years ago and a choice of public houses as well as the village church and GP's surgery.
