Situation

Standing on both the edge of the town and Savernake Forest is this family house. Marlborough offers shopping facilities, with a twice weekly market, library, various restaurants and pubs, and enjoys a good range of sports clubs and leisure facilities. It 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 are direct rail service to London Paddington and the South West. Additional stations can be found 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, cycling and leisure opportunities with the Savernake Forest, Kennet and Avon Canal, and the world Heritage Sites of Avebury and Silbury Hill all nearby.

Outside

Set well back from the road and sitting centrally in mature gardens and woodlands stands this detached family house. The gardens offer so much variety with many fruit trees, roses and climbers, a vegetable garden and a pleathora of indigenous trees all of which combined with large expanses of hedgerows make this a very private property. The rear of the property has a beautiful mature wisteria which frames the back and provides a wash of colour. There is a track at the rear of the woodlands which leads to Marlborough Cricket Club and has a public path to Savernake Forest.
