A detached four bedroom house with a paddock situated in a popular village within easy reach
of Marlborough.

Somers Cottage, Ogbourne St. Andrew is situated in the heart of the village with a scattered variety of both period and modern houses. The village is within the Marlborough Downs AONB with a church and excellent restaurant/public house, ‘Silks on the
Downs’. It is a popular area for both riding and walking with a village primary school at nearby Ogbourne St George. The town of Marlborough is only 2 miles away with many boutique shops,
cafes and restaurants including Rick Stein, Dans, Godots, Pizza Express, ASK & Prezzo. National retailers include Waitrose and Tesco. In addition, there are the shopping areas of Hilliers Yard
and Hughenden Yard. The leisure centre and golf club provide excellent sporting facilities too. The village 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. Intercity rail (London Paddington) and M4 connections are at both Swindon and Hungerford is within 6 miles. There is an excellent range of private schooling in the area with St Margaret’s Prep and St Mary’s in Calne, Marlborough College and Dauntsey’s in West Lavington.

The property is a well laid out detached four bedroom house which has been upgraded with high quality finishes throughout. The ground floor accommodation flows exceptionally well with a spacious entrance from which all the principal receptions can be accessed.

The kitchen/breakfast room is a light double aspect room with a solid oak floor and a hand crafted ‘Smallbone’ kitchen with Kashmir White Granite work surfaces and integrated high quality appliances including a Liebherr fridge and freezer. The sitting room is a well proportion room with a Jetmaster fireplace and leads through to the impressive ‘David Salisbury’ Orangery with views over the garden. The study and adjacent reading room are fitted with well-designed maple units creating plenty of concealed storage. Completing the ground floor is a spacious dining room, cloakroom and a utility area plus a range of units
located within the garage. Off the first floor galleried landing are all the bedrooms with the master suite offering a range of builtin maple wardrobes and cupboards and a generous en-suite. The remaining bedrooms are of a good size with two having built-in storage and all are serviced by the family bathroom.

To the front of the property is an enclosed garden with mature hedging and a paved footpath leads up to the entrance door. To the side of the garden is ample parking immediately in front of the double garage (with electric doors) which has attached solar panels providing an additional income. To the
rear of the property are lawns and raised flowerbeds with a continuous terrace along the property. There is a large ornamental pond beyond which is an expansive area of lawn with Damson and Apple trees with a large timber garden shed
and greenhouse on the fringes both with power and light. A gate leads from the garden into the paddock which measures approximately 0.5 an acre and has been planted with a range of trees including Himalayan Birch, Oak and fruit trees. The
area is enclosed by high Hawthorne hedging with a side gate leading on to a neighbouring footpath and a further five bar gate providing right of access to the road.

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.
