A beautifully restored triple fronted Grade II Listed home once a cobbler's house, shop and tannery. The property retains features such as open fires and bay windows, which fuse perfectly with a modern style including an open plan kitchen, dining and living area with double doors to the level garden.The entrance hall is flanked by two reception rooms; the pretty sitting room has a Bath stone fireplace and bay window with seat whilst the second sitting room also benefits from a stone fireplace and bay window to the front. Wrapping round the side and rear is a superb open plan living space with dining room leading into a smart kitchen with shaker style units under wood work surfaces and a Rangemaster gas cooker. Details such as curved cupboards designed to mirror the walls of this century's old village home add to the appeal. Continuing from the kitchen is the dining room with double doors leading out to the garden. This superb layout of open plan living, with the benefit of three further reception rooms is a rare find in a property of such character. A wonderful wide staircase leads to the first floor which houses four light and airy rooms. The master bedroom with a bay window and high ceilings plus two further bedrooms are positioned to the front of the house. The Master bedroom to the rear looks out onto the garden and benefits from a free standing bath and private toilet whilst a modern shower room serves the three other bedrooms.
Grounds & Gardens.
The garden has a terrace adjacent to the breakfast room allowing free flow from inside to out. A side terrace and stone built potting shed is a further attractive area whilst the old two storey tannery is ripe for converting and has the benefit of planning permission to attach the house to the tannery by way of a contemporary styled glass atrium which would create a further reception room, utility, cloakroom and 5th bedroom / work room (Pk15/2565/LB and PK15/2561/F). From the terrace a couple of steps lead to the lawn enclosed by dry stone walling and bordered by shrubs with a terrace at the end. Beyond the stone wall the property benefits from rear access provided by a gated driveway which leads to a gravel parking area at the bottom of the garden. This is screened by various mature shrubs and trees.
Marshfield is a highly sought after village approximately eight miles North East of Bath and convenient access links to the M4 (junction 18 Bath or 17 Chippenham). Bath and Chippenham provide comprehensive shopping facilities and amenities including mainline rail services (Paddington about 75 minutes from Chippenham, with the mainline to London being electrified this should improve the journey time from Chippenham to around an hour). Excellent road communications provide easy access to the major employment centres of Bristol and Swindon and, via the M4 (J17 & J18), London and the West Country. This vibrant village offers a perfect combination of modern convenience with traditional rural living. The unspoilt high street is made up of predominantly period homes and essential amenities such as a village store and post office, butchers, tea room, newsagents and pretty furniture shop. One of the major features of this active village is the popular primary school which was re-built just a few years ago and is now housed in a smart contemporary building offering modern facilities. There is also a good choice of both state and private schooling in the area. Also within the village is a choice of public houses as well as the village church and GP's surgery, and those with an interest in country and leisure pursuits are well catered for in the region.
