About this property

  • The classic Victorian porch leads into an impressive hallway with a grand staircase sweeping away. The original service bells remain in the hallway and are still operational. Beyond is a large garden room/conservatory overlooking the beautifully kept gardens and grounds with a substantial, private summer seating area on the terrace.

    The principal reception rooms flow off from the hallway. The drawing room, a particularly elegant room, has timeless high ceilings and large sash windows. The dining room is similarly well proportioned with large sash windows and gorgeous views out to the garden.

    Two home offices; a large, private office with smaller office off. Marston House has a first-class broadband facility through satellite.

    The kitchen breakfast room is a particular feature of the house being large, light and well appointed with a 4-door electric Aga, extensive Miele appliances and granite worktops. Adjacent is the utility room with integrated fridges and freezers. Pantry.

    The bedroom accommodation is laid out on two main floors. The main body of bedrooms with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms is on the first floor with the former staff flat with potentially two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor. One of the bedrooms is currently used as a sewing room. Set to the side of the house and completely secure is a substantial courtyard. On one side is a range of outbuildings including another utility room and various stores. The main building has been converted to provide a fabulous party/ entertaining area with a snooker room on the ground floor with a spiral staircase leading up to a games room on the first floor.

    It should be noted that planning permission was granted about 10 years ago for a swimming pool complex but it was never built out. It is envisaged that this could be reinstated if so required. Set separately and discreetly hidden away is a substantial, bespoke garage block with garaging for up to 5 cars.

    The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of Marston House with a plethora of colour. The garden has been thoughtfully laid out with a series of compartments, some with rose beds, others with trees and shrubs. Marston House has an array of fabulous mature trees. At the far end of the garden is a stable block with two stables and a substantial mower shed.

    The whole property extends to about 5 acres.
