- Download Brochure
The Cricketers House is a beautiful and striking period town house in the heart of Marlborough. The house is well known locally having previously been a well-regarded restaurant for many years. The property has recently been totally re-designed and renovated to create a stylish and spacious house, contemporary in design but with classic overtones. The rooms are well proportioned, and large bay windows at the front allow the natural light to flood in. On the ground floor the kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with contemporary units and a range cooker, and an attractive window seat has created a useful additional seating area. There is a spacious double reception room which could be used as one large entertaining space or divided into a formal sitting room at one end and dining room at the other. On the lower ground floor there is a large useable space currenty used as a utility room/laundry/ storage area, as well as a fantastic wine cellar with wine bins and dry storage. More could be made of this space if required. Upstairs on the first floor there is a very spacious landing off which are two generous sized double bedrooms and a large, newly appointed bathroom. French doors on the landing open onto a delightful roof terrace garden. There is an additional double bedroom and a further bathroom on the top floor.
Attractive wrought-iron railings at the front have created a smart facade to the house and a pretty gate leads to the front door. The first floor roof garden is a wonderful outside space with a good degree of privacy and is a fantastic west facing suntrap. There is room for garden furniture and space for relaxing and entertaining. There are raised flower borders along one side with a mix of planting that creates a charming backdrop. The roof garden is currently laid with an astro turf lawn.
The Cricketers House is situated about half way up Kingsbury Street, close to all the amenities of the High Street and town centre. Marlborough is a very popular market town that still retains much character, with the majority of the shops, restaurants and cafes located on or close to the high street. The town offers a mix of smaller independent shops and larger stores, including Waitrose and Tesco's, as well as a doctors' surgery, dentist, and a choice of highly-regarded schools. There are also rugby, tennis and golf clubs located in the town and you can walk direct from the house, just a short distance up the hill, to the Common which provides miles of fabulous walking countryside. Marlborough is on the edge of the beautiful Savernake Forest and is surrounded by the fantastic rolling countryside of the Pewsey Vale offering extensive walking and riding opportunities. Communications are good with easy access to the M4 linking with London and the M5/West Country, and fast train services from Pewsey or Swindon into London Paddington. There is an excellent choice of schools in the area including Marlborough College, St John's Marlborough, Pinewood, St Francis Pewsey, Preshute primary school and Ramsbury primary school.
From Newbury, follow the A4 until you reach Marlborough. Continue down the hill into the town and at the double mini roundabouts turn right. Continue on this road and at the next mini roundabout take the first exit and continue to towards the High Street, then turn immediately right around the side of the town hall into Kingsbury Street. Follow Kingsbury Street going up the hill, and The Cricketers House, 27 Kingsbury Street, will be found about half way up on the right hand side.Read all
