    About this property

    • 4 Marlborough Villas is a beautifully refurbished and stylish Victorian townhouse located in a prominent position along the River Ouse, set within a short row of smart townhouses. The property benefits from elegant proportions of its period with large bay windows, sash windows, stained glass panels, deep skirting boards, plasterwork with cornicing and ceiling roses, as well as striking fireplaces and the original staircase.

      The kitchen, with a breakfast area, is a very functional room and has been finished to a high standard with handmade units, a range, integral appliances, butler sink and breakfast bar. There is also a cloakroom and a useful utility/laundry room.

      The lower ground floor is used by the current owner as a games room and a family TV room having two interlinking rooms, but can offer many different uses. On the ground floor the formal sitting room and dining room, both with feature fireplaces, have been opened up to create very light rooms making the most of the outlook across the river. The dining room has doors leading onto the delightful, decked courtyard garden.

      At the front of the house is the glorious principal bedroom suite with impressive proportions, en suite shower room, dressing room, ornate fireplace and a big bay window with views across the river.

      The main house bathroom is an appealing luxury space with a roll top bath and separate shower. There are a further three generous double bedrooms and a second house bathroom, ideal for family and guests.

      The property benefits from two very different outside spaces. The rear walled garden offers privacy and has been designed to make the best use of the space with a Mediterranean feel with decked seating area, greenery, plants and is a perfect space for entertaining.

      The delightful flagged stone terrace with seating area to the front of the house gives access to the riverside and many hours have been spent relaxing and enjoying the view.

    The current arrangement of the rooms works beautifully but this is a house that offers many possibilities to an incoming buyer.
