Marlborough, 02 July 2012, Buy a property on the market in Marlborough and it may well alter your outlook on the world.

The house, Hyde Leaze, in Hyde Road, is in an elevated position close to the Common and enjoys a south westerly outlook across the Marlborough College playing fields to the Kennet Valley beyond.

Despite this idyllic spot, it is still within walking distance of the town centre where there is a variety of big name and specialist shops as well as the renowned market in the High Street.

“Hyde Leaze has a very private position on the edge of the town where it meets the Downs,” says Gill Sharpe, of Carter Jonas in Marlborough. “It dates back to 1922s so is now 90 years old and pleasingly matured.

“When it was built, no doubt the view held much of its appeal and that hasn’t really changed today nor is it likely to. Of course, stunning views don’t make the complete home so the house itself has spacious rooms and is presented to a high standard.

“This is a 90 year old with a very modern approach to life. Solar PV panels mounted out of sight on the garage roof generate enough electricity under the Feed-In-Tariff scheme to cover the average annual bill.

“But the tall chimneys, a throwback to heating in an earlier age, add to the warm and very welcoming appearance with its distinctive balanced façade and interesting period detailing. The well-fitted kitchen, with electric ovens and gas hob unit, opens onto the morning room which, like the adjoining drawing room, has a curved bay window so evocative of the era. There’s also a separate dining room and ground floor shower room.

“Currently the house has three bedrooms but there’s potential to reconvert to the original four or extend, subject to consents.”

Guide price is £865,000. For more information, contact Carter Jonas on 01672 514916 or email
