A charming detached Victorian Villa in a semi-rural yet accessible location with beautiful gardens, grounds and a paddock. In all about 1.7 acres.
Marwood House is a particularly attractive detached villa which is thought to date back to the late Victorian era. It has tall elevations and large windows, typical of its period, and is made unique by its verandah, which runs along three elevations and partly covers the terrace.
The accommodation in the main house is well proportioned with high ceilings and all the principal rooms take advantage of views over the gardens and grounds. It has in recent years been the subject of a programme of enlargement with the addition of a superb kitchen/dining room. This has been beautifully fitted with oak units and includes an oil-fired Rayburn and bi-ford doors which open onto the terrace.
Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached from the lane through double wrought iron gates which lead to a hard-standing and parking area, adjacent to which is the detached timber garage/store. Adjoining the property is a terrace which is partly covered by the verandah and which is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the natural elements of the setting.
The gardens are a true delight and lie mainly to the south and east and are laid principally to areas of sweeping lawn, bordered and interspersed with colourful plant and shrub beds. Within the grounds there are a several outbuildings which include a former garage and which are now in need of some repair. At the bottom of the garden a gate leads to the paddock which has also has a field gate to the lane and in which there is a small field shelter. In all the gardens and paddock extend to approximately 1.1 acres and the property also owns a wooded swathe of land which runs down into a goyle. In total the land extends to about 1.7 acres.
Marwood House is located in a beautiful country position on the fringes of Offwell, a charming village which has an active community, a primary school and ancient Church of St Mary
