    About this property

    • Situated on the eastern edge of Marlow with excellent access to the station and A404(M) is this very charming cottage, believed to have been built in approximately 1919 and renovated to a high standard less than 10 years ago. The property offers a wealth of character, including solid parquet floors, exposed timber beams and a wood-burning stove, which is beautifully complemented by a contemporary kitchen and a largely neutral colour scheme. From the property there are pleasant views over its own garden and the countryside beyond, which includes Westhorpe Lakes.

      The accommodation extends over two floors and has a versatile layout, with a bedroom downstairs which could be used as an additional reception space if required. The house is entered via an entrance hall with built-in storage and access to a cloakroom with w.c. The main sitting/dining room is a very good size and has a stove and an open feature staircase to the first floor. The kitchen adjoins the sitting/dining room and has a useful storage cupboard, stone worktops and integrated appliances.
      Upstairs there are two beautifully presented double bedrooms enjoying vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and a modern family bathroom.

      There is off-street driveway parking to the front on a gravel driveway, with an expansive lawn area featuring a number of mature trees and post-and-rail fencing enclosing the space from the open fields beyond. The garden also features a patio and a large decking area.
      The addition of a stylish freestanding home studio provides the perfect flexible space for working/entertaining.
