    About this property

    • Marshalls Place is a delightful Grade II listed house, which is believed to date in part from the 17th century with later 18th, 19th and 21st century additions. During the 1940s Marshalls Place was home to the artist Edie Lamont. Edie had been at St John's Wood Art School during the 1930's with fellow painter, John Minton, who was also a frequent visitor to the property, using the detached cottage (now annexe) as his studio, and a plaque features on the exterior wall.

      The house, together with its excellent annexe with open plan kitchen/sitting room, is set back from the road, in lovely gardens with tandem garaging and various outbuildings. Internally, the well proportioned accommodation is arranged over three floors together with a useful cellar.

      The reception rooms are all well proportioned and comprise sitting and family rooms, both are attractive light rooms enjoying a southerly aspect and outlook over the front gardens. The dining room is a flexible space with engineered oak flooring and it is open to the kitchen and perfect for entertaining.

      The kitchen/breakfast room has direct access to the rear gardens and is fitted with a range of cupboards and appliances comprising a gas fired two oven AGA, Quooker boiling tap, integral dishwasher and microwave. Access can be gained via a trap door to the cellar. The utility room is adjacent to the kitchen, and there is space for white goods and access to a separate WC.

      Situated on the first floor the generous principal bedroom suite enjoys a dual aspect and benefits from an en suite bathroom and a sizeable dressing room with fitted wardrobe cupboards. Five further bedrooms, two with wash hand basins and several with fitted wardrobes together with a family bathroom and separate WC complete the first and second floor accommodation.

      Marshalls Place is approached via a tarmacadam drive with a spur leading off to the gravel parking to the front of the house and a further access to the annexe and garaging with plenty of additional parking. The gardens surround the house, there is an old brick outbuilding immediately to the rear, incorporating wood and general stores, a covered terrace, ideal for outside dining and a BBQ hut.
