Marlborough is known for its stunning homes in the town which are easy on the eye, so we thought we’d delve into some of Marlborough’s mansion-like homes up for grabs right now.
One of Marlborough’s sprawling houses, a £3 million family home, is the priciest property on the market in the town right now.
The White House is a four-bedroom family home, with a fresh and modern look both inside and out.
But there are lots of Edwardian elements running through the property, and more traditional features like wooden flooring and an open fireplace.
The current owners have completely renovated the property and it now has a kitchen/breakfast living area with beams and bi-fold doors opening out to the rear garden.
Other recent improvements include oak window frames, gray washed original floorboards, underfloor and sound insulation, underfloor heating and a Sonos sound system.
It’s extravagance continues upstairs, with a main bedroom which boasts an open fireplace, a dressing room and an ensuite bathroom.
There is also gated side access to the rear gardens which have been landscaped and extend to around one acre.
Another sprawling house on the market in Marlborough right now is the Thorn Hanger- a Victorian home that was originally built in the 1890s for one of the Marlborough College School Masters.
On the market for £2,750,000, the property’s gardens seem to be what make it stand out, having a wide range of fruit trees and mature shrubs.
There is also a paved south facing sun terrace which you can get to through the dining room – making it the perfect place to wine and dine.
So what’s it all like on the inside?
The Victorian home has plenty of high ceilings, large windows and renaissance style Dutch barn gables.
It has also been upgraded to include a new roof and was rewired in 2014/15 by the current owners.
Arranged over three floors, the accommodation is versatile and well proportioned, and the three main reception rooms run across the rear of the house and all have a southern aspect with garden views and fireplaces.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke cabinetry in a duck egg blue, with central island and marble worktops along with integrated appliances and a gas fired AGA, (so whoever buys this property will have no excuse not to be a pro when it comes to cook).
