Marlbrook is one of a pair of similar houses probably built in the mid part of the 20th Century, peacefully located in the delightful village of Chiselborough. It has a handsome principal façade with Hamstone mullion windows and has been sympathetically extended on the south eastern side. The interior exudes an atmosphere of quality which is enhanced by features such as woodblock floors to all the principal reception areas, a staircase with hardwood handrail, thick panelled doors with brass furniture and an upgraded electrical system incorporating downlighters in most rooms. On the ground floor there is a well proportioned sitting room with a Hamstone fireplace and hearth, adjustable bookcases faced with reeded columns and a double aspect. Bevelled glass doors open into the dining room served with display shelves and cupboards and French casements out to the garden. There is a well fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, Granite worktops, an island unit, ceramic flooring, which opens up into a breakfast/living room with bottled gas stove and French casements out to a south facing loggia. On the first floor the principal bedroom suite has its own lobby with access to a double aspect bedroom provided with full width fitted cupboards and an en-suite bathroom. There are three other bedrooms, two of which are doubles, served by a second bathroom with bedroom 4 capable of being used as a study as it is at present. The layout of the accommodation is equally suited to family life or retirement.
Stone walling flanks six foot high entrance gates opening to a driveway and parking area at the front of the house. To one side is a attractive stone and tile building now providing a garage/workshop with electric door. At the front a lawned walkway flanked by well stocked borders meanders amongst specimen trees and shrubs leading to a seating area adjacent to a wisteria clad arbour. To the other side of the drive is a productive vegetable and fruit garden, walled on two sides, together with apple trees. To the rear of the house a well maintained lawn is bisected by a small stream crossed by two footbridges. The rear garden is part walled and includes a paved terrace set to catch the afternoon sun. On the northern gable is an enclosed tennis practice area with artificial surface, suitable for other ball games.
