A beautiful Grade II listed period house, in a superb position in the centre of Marlborough

The Old Coach House is the former Coach House to the Old Rectory next door, and historically was owned by Marlborough College. It has been fully renovated and extended by the current owners to a high standard throughout and is now a delightful three-bedroom property with a wealth of mpressive features, including high quality fittings and well-presented décor. Behind the property’s impressive outer stone walls, there is a secluded and attractive garden. On the ground floor there is a well-proportionedsitting room with natural limestone floor, a fireplace fitted with a woodburning stove and French doors opening onto the south-facing garden room and terrace beyond. The garden room itself has an impressive vaulted ceiling and full-height glass windows, welcoming plenty of natural light and creating a warm, comfortable spot in which to relax. The kitchen and breakfast room has attractive Smallbone shaker-style units, granite worktops, a central island and a stainless steel Rangemaster cooker, as well as plenty of space for a dining table. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, including the generous principal bedroom with its en suite bathroom, with corner bath and separate shower unit. There is also a family shower room.

Outside

The property is accessed via an impressive arched gateway, between striking cobbled stone walls. The electronically operated gateway opens onto a gravel driveway and parking area, with space for two vehicles. There are gardens to the side of the house, which are south-facing and relatively low-maintenance, including paved terracing, steps down to the charming summer house and raised beds, which are full of colourful flowers and shrubs.

Situation

The Old Coach House is located in the heart of the historic market town of Marlborough, and is incredibly convenient for all that Marlborough has to offer. It sits surrounded by the stunning countryside of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town’s charming High Street has plenty of historic buildings, and provides everyday amenities with a good choice of high street and independent shops and boutiques, as well as a variety of restaurants and cafés. The town also has several supermarkets, including a Waitrose. There are several schools in the town, including the outstanding-rated Preshute C of E Primary School, St. John’s for secondary (also rated “outstanding” by Oftsed), and the independent Marlborough College. The area is well connected by road, with the A4 running through Marlborough and providing easy access towards Chippenham, Newbury and Bath, and the A346 providing access toward Swindon. The M4 is just eight miles away, while mainline rail services are available 10 miles away in Hungerford.

Directions

From Newbury, take the A4 west towards Hungerford. Continue to follow the A4 for 18 and a half miles, into Marlborough and onto the high street. You will find the entrance to the property on your left-hand side, just before reaching the church on your right, towards the end of the High Street. The gated entrance is immediately on your left as the black railings come to an end.
