A wonderful family house set in approximately 8 acres of gardens and grounds in a peaceful location
Marywell is an attractive and valuably un-listed family house in a beautiful setting on the edge of Chapel Row. The house is very private and has a wonderful outlook across the lawns and garden to the woods beyond.
The accommodation is spacious and bright with generous sized, well-proportioned rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room has been recently fitted with sleek white units and granite worktops, and the double doors open out to the terrace with views across the garden. The delightful drawing room is triple aspect and very light, with a wood burning stove for the colder months. There is also a lovely sitting room/family room and a large dining room. All the reception rooms lead off the entrance hall and the accommodation flows well making the house ideal for entertaining.
Upstairs there is a master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and large walk-in wardrobe, and 4 further bedrooms and 3 further bathrooms.
This property has 8 acres of land.
The house sits in a wonderful spot with gardens and grounds extending to approximately 8 acres. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees, shrubs and hedges, and an abundance of rhododendrons and azaleas. The bottom of the garden is filled with daffodils and bluebells in the Spring time, and a gate leads through to the woodland beyond. There is a swimming pool and a summer house, and two outbuildings used as a games room and for storage.
The land is partly freehold incorporating the mature garden, and there are approximately 5.6 acres of additional leasehold land recently purchased from the Bucklebury estate with over 900 years of lease to run.
The property is approached from the Common down a well maintained wooded drive which leads through a 5 bar gate onto a driveway and parking area in front of the house, with a further gravel area to the side with plenty of additional parking space.
Marywell is situated close to the village of Chapel Row and the surrounding countryside is renowned for walking and riding.
In the village itself there is a popular public house restaurant, The Bladebone, as well as the Blackbird Cafe and an interior design shop. Stanford Dingley is the next village along, with a beautiful Saxon church and two public houses, The Old Boot and The Bull.
