A two bedroom Victorian property, converted from the original school house, and situated in an elevated position in this popular village.

Collingbourne Ducis is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Conservation Area. Situated midway between the large provincial centres of Marlborough and Andover which provide varied and comprehensive amenities, Collingbourne Ducis has a range of facilities centred on the Post Office, general store, St. Andrews Church, two pubs including The Tipple Inn and a primary school. It is strategically well placed with efficient road access to Newbury, Marlborough and Andover and the motorway is accessible either at Junction 14 or 15 of the M4 at Swindon and Hungerford or the M3 to Andover. There are mainline rail stations at Pewsey (Paddington 65 minutes approximately) and Andover (Waterloo 75 minutes approximately).

A middle portion of the Old School House, the property is a traditional Victorian building constructed of local stone beneath a tiled roof. The accommodation is deceptive and offers a light entrance hallway with cloakroom off which leads into the main living/dining room which is a generous space with high ceiling. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units with built in appliances and space for a small dining table with a glazed door leading out to the garden. The ground floor is completed by the study/bedroom two. The first floor bedroom is a good size with views over the surrounding countryside to the front and churchyard views to the rear. The shower room leads off the bedroom (although scope to turn into a bathroom).

The courtyard garden is to the rear of the property and is an attractive space which has a built in seating area with raised beds stocked with mature plants and views across to the church. The property comes with two parking spaces in a private car park located to the side of the building.

Leave Marlborough on the A346 heading south to Collingbourne Ducis. Continue through the village passing the shop on the left. At the roundabout take the right hand turn and continue along past the Church and after a short distance the property will be set back from the road on the right hand side.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
