The location

The land adjacent to the Common was purchased at the end of the 19th century by a former Marlborough College pupil and gifted to the town to build quality housing for the residents of Marlborough. Built around a central garden and allotments, it is a highly sought after location offering the residents the best of both worlds. Open country views in a quiet close whilst being only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of Marlborough's historic High Street. Marlborough is a thriving market town reputedly with the widest High Street in Europe. It combines a classic period charm with a broad selection of amenities.
