A cleverly extended 3 bedroom Grade II listed cottage conveniently located close to the High Street

6 Ironmonger Lane is approached down a cobbled pedestrian lane minutes from the High Street, conveniently placed for all that Marlborough has to offer. Marlborough is a thriving and expanding market town with extensive shopping facilities, twice weekly market, various restaurants and pubs, including Rick Steins, Dan’s, ASK as well as several coffee shops. The extended leisure centre, golf club and new tennis courts provide excellent sporting facilities. It is well served by an excellent range of state and independent schools, including St. Mary’s, Preshute, St. John’s, Marlborough College, St Francis and Pinewood. Although self-sufficient, the town is well placed for other centres including Swindon, Bath, Hungerford and Newbury. The countryside surrounding Marlborough is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers good walking, cycling and leisure opportunities with the Savernake Forest, Kennet and Avon Canal, and the world Heritage Sites of Avebury and Silbury Hill all nearby. There are mainline railway services to Paddington from Pewsey, Great Bedwyn and Swindon and M4 connections giving access to London and the West County at Swindon (Junction15) and Hungerford (Junction 14).

6 Ironmonger Lane is a cleverly extended Grade II listed property believed to date from the C17th with later additions. The property is constructed of timber frame and later red brick elevations under a tiled roof relieved by timber casement windows. The property provides interesting accommodation arranged over three floors and having been the subject of a significant programme of refurbishment in 2012 by the present owners, offers contemporary living with an uber-chic interior. On the upper ground floor and to the rear of the property there is a large open plan kitchen/dining/ family room with a modern fitted kitchen with built-in hob and oven, timber floor and bi-folding doors opening out onto a stone terrace and steps up to the pretty garden. Two bedrooms, a well-appointed family bathroom, a utility room/cloakroom and boot area are also on the upper ground floor.

Stairs lead down to a sitting room/study with access to a pedestrian lane and also rise to a third bedroom with French doors. The flat roof may offer an opportunity to extend the third floor (STPC). The property is presented with style and charm in a neutral palette with trendy pops of colour. It also benefits from Superfast Broadband, mains gas supply and underfloor heating to many areas of the property.

The house is approached via the lane with a paved path leading across a terrace to the front door. The skilfully designed gardens are mainly at the rear of the property enjoying a private westerly aspect on two levels stocked with mature shrubs, specimen trees, climbers, box hedging, a pretty herb garden fully enclosed by brick walling. There is a cedar clad studio/office space built to a high specification suitable for a number of uses with views across Marlborough and two recently restored 17th Century brick ovens used as BBQs by the current owners.

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.
