A detached 1930’s family house with excellent accommodation and enjoying a large garden in a most sought after area of Marlborough.

Forest Edge House is an imposing 1930’s family house, located to the East of the town and within walking distance of the town centre. Marlborough is a thriving and expanding market town with excellent local shopping including some of the major retailers. National retailers include Waitrose and Tesco’s supermarkets and several quality restaurants including Dans, Pizza Express, ASK and Costa Coffee and Nero. In addition there are the shopping areas in Hilliers Yard and Hughenden Yard. The leisure centre and golf club provide excellent sporting facilities. Although self-sufficient, the town is well placed for other centres including Swindon, Bath, Hungerford and Newbury and is surrounded by the most attractive countryside of the Marlborough Downs, Pewsey Vale and Kennet Valley. Rail (Paddington) and M4 connections are at both Swindon and Hungerford.

Forest Edge House is a most attractive and impressive family house, constructed in the 1930’s with later additions and comprising a red brick façade under a tiled roof with solar panels relieved by impressive partly double glazed windows. The property offers flexible accommodation over two floors, with all rooms enjoying high ceilings, and retaining much of the period look and feel.

There is a porch that leads through to dining hall which is stylishly presented, this leads through to the gracious double aspect drawing room which has an attractive window seat and large windows as well as an attractive fireplace. There is a bespoke kitchen with an adjoining utility room which hosts a range of wall and floor units with granite surfaces and a gas fired Aga. In addition there is a large office/ studio with a reception room and bathroom which could be utilised as an annexe. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with an ensuite, 3 further bedrooms, one with an Ensuite and a family bathroom.

The house is approached via Chopping Knife Lane, over a tarmac driveway, to a garage. There are well planted gardens to the front, tastefully designed with trees and shrubs akin to the Avebury stone circle. The lawned area extends to the side and through to the rear garden which is enclosed by attractive brick walling. There is large decked area with a summer house which enjoys the Westley sunsets. There are plenty of pretty shrub and flower borders.

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.
