  • Bedrooms: 5
A sizable detached family home requiring some improvement, occupying one and a quarter acres of semi wooded land backing onto the edge of this ancient Royal Saxon forest.


One of the most beautiful villages in the Kennet Valley with National Trust protected land, excellent newly refurbished pub and an outstanding Primary School within the catchment for St Johns School in Marlborough. The village sits on the edge of the ancient Saxon Woods, formally Savernake Westbrail, now West Woods, famous for its breathtaking Bluebells in Spring, crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways.

The accommodation

Stepping up from the parking area we walk into the front porch with space for coats, shoes and through the front door into the entrance hall. Staircase rising to the first floor with cupboard under. We will take the first door on the left into the sitting room, a long room with fireplace and windows to the front and side. Back into the hall and left into the kitchen/breakfast room, again a good sized room with window to the side, good range of fitted units and walk in larder. To the right is the utility room with window and door out into the garden, plumbing for appliances and further fitted storage. Back to the hall, to the left is the downstairs cloakroom, and next into the family room, currently used as a study/library/ground floor bedroom.

Up the staircase onto the landing and first right into a double bedroom with window to the rear, built in wardrobes and sink. Next is a single bedroom with window to the rear, a slightly large single bedroom is next with windows to the rear and side and sink.

Back along the landing and right into a very large family bathroom with deep walk in airing cupboard which also houses the LPG boiler. A separate bathroom is next with walk in bath/shower.
