Longdon is a substantial and newly constructed family house built by an experienced developer. This will be one of two bespoke properties occupying a sought after position just moments from the ever popular market town of Marlborough and within easy reach of Marlborough College.
Built in a traditional construction and arranged with families in mind the house has a wonderful mix of open plan and sociable living areas as well as more intimate and closed off family rooms. The use of high quality materials is evident throughout but notably in the bespoke high end kitchen, complementary bathroom suites and professionally landscaped grounds.
The stunning entrance hall gives you the first glimpses of the quality finish with beautifully crafted inlaid doors and a wood and glazed staircase set against a stone floor. Double doors from here provide immediate access into the kitchen/breakfast room. This impressive room is fitted with a range of contemporary units complemented by a Silestone worktop. A bank of integrated ovens incorporates: two ovens, microwave and steamer and sits alongside the integrated induction hob. There are breakfast bar facilities as well as ample space for table and chairs. There is also an independent utility room. Further double doors open onto the dining room and in turn the sitting room. This room has a lovely bay window to the front and a large fireplace creates a focal point. There is a separate family room ideal for use as a children’s playroom, study or cinema room.
The first floor provides three generous double bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom also has a walk-in dressing room. The top floor gives further flexibility with two additional large bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The historic market town of Marlborough provides an extensive range of shopping facilities, a twice weekly market, a library, various restaurants and pubs, including the recently opened Rick Stein Restaurant and enjoys a good range of clubs and leisure facilities. The town 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 is a regular rail service to London Paddington and the South West. There are additional stations 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 and cycling opportunities including the nearby famous 'West Woods' at Lockeridge known for their bluebells and also Savernake Forest.
A recessed electric gate provides access onto the sweeping gravel driveway and in turn the oak framed double carport. The front garden is largely laid to lawn with some low level planting as well as stepped and ramp access to the main front door. To the rear the garden is wrapped around the property and is predominantly laid to lawn with a generous patio adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room. Views from all of the front windows overlook the adjacent farmland.
