Property Description

Much improved in recent years, 'Marchwood' is a truly outstanding family home that shares its incredible setting with just a handful of other individual properties. Blessed with superb privacy the house is set behind a generous front garden which is enclosed by glorious beech hedge. A gently sloping stone chipped driveway leads up to property and provides ample parking and access to a large open carport, behind which sits a sizable workshop.

The property displays a striking façade which blends period character perfectly with smart contemporary refinements. To the front of the house is an impressive glass fronted reception area which is enjoyed as a garden room by our current owners, it has a lovely outlook over the front garden and glimpses impressive views over the valley, the perfect space to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting.

Entering the house, you arrive at a charming inner hallway with stairs rising to the first floor and a traditional wooden floor.

There is a handy ground floor shower/cloakroom with a bespoke stained-glass window, and a useful utility room with a quarry tiled floor, plumbing for white goods and a covered access to the garden. To the rear left of the hallway a door opens into two combined reception rooms that are linked through an open arch. The first reception room is currently utilised as a quiet sitting area with a window overlooking the garden, and the other larger living room has space for all the family to congregate. The living room has a lovely dual aspect with French doors leading out to covered porch, and onto the garden, it also features a handsome open fireplace which provides a lovely focal point to the room, and to cosy up to in the colder winter months.

Beyond the living room a door with a single step-down leads to two further versatile ground floor rooms, one a really useful home office with a front facing aspect, and the other a superb study or playroom which could also easily be utilised as a fourth bedroom if required. To the opposite end of the entrance hallway lies undeniably the most impressive room in the house, the outstanding triple aspect kitchen/dining room, very much the beating heart of the house it has a fabulous, vaulted ceiling and a truly magnificent corner window which spans almost two entire walls. This superb feature has the impression of bringing the outside landscaped garden seamlessly into the room. The kitchen area is fitted with a superb range of matching pale sage green wall and base units, complemented by a contrasting black granite countertop, there is a smart tiled splashback and a beautiful slate floor. Within the kitchen there is provision for a large range style cooker with a canopy extractor hood over, an inset sink, plumbing for a dishwasher and space for large American style fridge freezer. There is plenty of space within the room for a large dining table or alternatively a soft seating area if desired. Both the kitchen and the sunroom have underfloor heating. To the side French doors lead out to a wonderful, decked terrace and the incredible landscaped garden.

Moving onto the first floor, you will find the three double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Accessed off a glorious galleried landing with a polished wooden floor and windows looking out to far reaching views all the rooms are wonderfully individual.

Set to the right of the landing is the dual aspect guest suite and features a smart en-suite shower room and a great vista over the garden, bedroom three is central to the landing and is a good-sized double, again looking out over the rear garden, however probably the most impressive bedroom is what would be bedroom two or for many people become the master room.

Boasting a fantastic triple aspect, this dramatic room has a vaulted ceiling, French doors to a Juliette balcony and stylish fitted wardrobes, along with an incredible feeling of space.

Completing the first-floor accommodation is the luxurious family bathroom, another room enjoying access to a balcony, it features an inset oval bath, walk in shower, and quality sanitaryware. There are smart polished floorboards, a painted tongue and groove panelled wall and a chrome heated towel rail.

Outside, the property sits within generous grounds of approaching 0.4 of an acre, every bit as impressive as the house itself, the garden has been subject to a meticulous grand designs makeover throughout the years which blends not only traditional native plant and tree species, but also sharply contrasting architectural plants and rockery borders. The main seating/entertaining area lies directly outside of the kitchen/dining room and is the perfect space for al-fresco dining owing to the well positioned bespoke built barbecue grill and pizza oven with slate serving area. A magnificent, curved deck sits above a large ornamental pond with a decorative rockery border to the rear that is interspersed with many shrubs, flowers and is a haven for wildlife. Beyond the seating/entertaining area and spanning the entire width of the plot is a gently sloping lawn with several mature specimen trees dotted within it. There is a large productive fruit/vegetable cage, a greenhouse, and to the top of the garden is a good-sized wooden outbuilding which was formally a stable and is now used as a workshop for our vendors stained glass window business.

The views from the garden are simply magnificent with the imperious Mendip Hills behind, the rolling fields of the Wrington Vale to the front and far-reaching views to the Brecon Beacons, you could honestly lose yourself for hours in this wonderfully enchanting setting.
