A beautifully presented five bedroom family house, with a striking rear extension, located on a prime road close to Marlborough High Street.


Located a short walk from Marlborough High Street, Hightown is a handsome red brick, detached house offering lightfilled, elegantly appointed accommodation and combining period character with stylish modern fittings.

Approached through a welcoming reception hall, this is a delightful family house offering a wealth of living and entertaining space throughout. The kitchen area is beautifully appointed with a high quality modern kitchen with large island and a range of top quality appliances. The kitchen opens up into a large dining/family area with bi-fold doors that open on two sides to the large south facing terrace.

The main sitting room is exceptional and provides the most wonderful entertaining space, perfect for large gatherings and comfortable with a delightful fitted fireplace. Doors lead from here both to the garden and terrace. In addition, there is another sitting room / study and the downstairs accommodation is completed by a utility room and separate downstairs cloakroom.

On the first floor is a large landing providing access to four of the bedrooms. The principal bedroom, overlooking the garden and with views across the town, has a large ensuite bathroom with separate shower. There is one further bedroom suite in this part of the house with an adjoining shower room. There are two further double bedrooms which are served by the well appointed family bathroom. Above the garage, the owners have created another spacious bedroom with ensuite shower room. This space could be used as the principal bedroom but would also make a wonderful guest room given it is accessed by a separate staircase.


The property’s driveway leads to a spacious gravel parking area and access to the double garage, which offers excellent further parking or home storage. The garden at the front is mainly laid to lawn and is bordered with wooden fencing and a variety of mature trees and shrubs. To the side of the property is a spacious south facing terrace and outdoor seating area, offering a great place for alfresco dining in the sunnier months. In all approx. 0.32 acres.


Hightown is located on the corner of Cross Lane and Back Lane, in this prestigious area of Marlborough within an Area of Natural Beauty. Marlborough is a vibrant market town and the house is located just a short walk from the High Street which enjoys the mantle of ‘the widest high street in England’. The town offers a mix of major retailers, independent boutiques, coffee and tea shops. There is a wide selection of national retailers including Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, popular restaurants include: Rick Stein’s, Franklyn’s Bistro, Dan’s, Pino’s and Ask. Hillier’s Yard and Hughenden Yard offer further boutique shopping to be discovered off the historic high street and the independent Parade Cinema show a wide range of films and live theatre.

The leisure centre is located close to the centre of town and Marlborough golf club offers an excellent round of golf in a stunning setting. Further sporting facilities and clubs include tennis, cricket, running, rugby and hockey. The town features regular live music events and an annual literature festival as well as a multitude of courses for all the family at Marlborough College Summer School. Situated on a historic trade route, Marlborough is very well placed for other towns including Swindon, Hungerford and Newbury and the cities of Bath and Salisbury.

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.
