Guide Price £550,000 Freehold
Incredible three bedroom detached bungalow with large south facing garden and fabulous views.
The Snicket, a narrow passage between houses….
Understood to have been built around 1981, The Snicket is one of two mirror image bungalows built on the former paddock of the neighbouring property. The property is the further of the two bungalows, and occupies a very secluded spot with a large south-east facing garden that offers big skies and amazing views across the water meadow, east Marlborough and onto Savernake Forest.
Entry into the property is via a wide hallway that immediately leads to the kitchen, large lounge/dining room and the third bedroom/study. Sun floods into the main living areas from first thing in the morning, and the whole property has a light and airy feel thanks to generous proportions of all of the rooms and the existence of large windows throughout.
The kitchen is a good size and is complemented by the utility room where there is plumbing for washing machines, additional storage options and the door onto the patio and garden.
There are two large bedrooms with built in wardrobes and also accessed from the main hall are the family bathroom and separate shower room.
The large garden provides a good level of privacy and is mainly laid to lawn with several low maintenance flower beds and plenty of entertaining space on the large patio that runs the entire width of the property.
There is a summer house across the lawn that provides a lovely space to take in the evening sunshine and the garden also houses a useful green house and small shed.
To the front of the property is a large block paved driveway offering parking for several vehicles in addition to the attached double garage with electric up and over doors. The property has gated side entrances from the front drive to the garden on both sides, thus offering easy 360-degree maintenance and access.
Whilst the property location is private, quiet and tucked away, it still feels very much connected to the town. Marlborough High Street is a short and reasonably level walk away and there is also quick access to many footpaths and the disused railway line used by walkers, cyclists and horses, that goes to Chiseldon.
Services: Mains Electric, drainage and Gas central heating.
