A rarely available period property, forming part of a manor house dating back to the Elizabethan era and rich in history, constructed of brick and flint. With accommodation over three floors with a spacious and impressive drawing room with mullioned feature window and focal point fireplace. This part of the manor is Victorian and was built around 1890. The property requires modernisation and improvement throughout.
Steeped in history, Marlow still retains much of its original character, with many remaining Georgian buildings, Churches and Monuments, such as Marlow Place and All Saints Church, to commemorate days gone by. The area is perfect for quiet strolls along the Thames riverside, to Marlow Lock and Weir, or across the Chilterns countryside. Marlow is well served for schooling with a number of primary schools and grammar and secondary schooling.

Junction 4 of the M40 is approximately 5 miles and there is easy access to junction 8/9 of the M4.
