    About this property

    • Set within walled gardens with an exceptionally private feel despite its central setting, Wellingrove is a striking Victorian villa with much to offer. The beautiful home has ample character and possesses a rich and diverse history, which can be seen through its lovely interiors which have an array of original features. It has been within the same family since the early 1960s and is currently lived in by the third generation; it is a much-loved family home.

      Behind the handsome red brick elevations there are wood floors, character fireplaces, wall panelling, picture rails and both sash and stained-glass windows. Small, highly individual details can be seen throughout and nod to the house's significant history, such as the Arts and Crafts style staircase. The interiors are elegantly presented in a traditional style that complements the age and considerable character of the home, however it offers excellent scope for further improvement and/or personalisation by the new owner.

      The substantial accommodation is well suited to family life and has excellent flow, affording ample space for entertaining large numbers or simply to relax as a family. The sitting room is to the rear of the home and is 27ft long, with views onto the gardens on two sides. There is also a formal dining room at the front of the house and a study. The kitchen is open to the rear reception space used as a morning/dining room, leading through to a utility space with front and rear side access. A useful cellar on the lower ground floor offers many potential uses.

      The bedrooms are situated over the first and second floors, comprising a large principal bedroom with dressing room, en suite shower room and terrace, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom plus additional WC on the first floor. On the top floor there are a further two rooms within the eaves that have lovely views over Marlow.

      Wellingrove is set within wonderfully leafy and tranquil gardens that wrap around the entire property. From the road, the setting affords a delightful first impression: set proudly within high brick walls, there are timber vehicle and pedestrian gates and mature trees providing a high degree of privacy. A paved driveway offers convenient parking from Station Road, while tucked away to the rear, accessible via Beaumont Rise, there is a separate private driveway which leads to a further parking area and a detached garage with space for four cars. The gardens are walled and comprise a generously sized lawn enveloping the west side of the property, a variety of established trees and shrubs, flowerbeds and borders, a terrace adjoining the house and a brick pergola to the rear, where there is gated access to the parking area. In an elevated position to the back of the house there is a lovely barbecue area for outdoor dining. In addition to the extensive garaging, additional outbuildings include two summerhouses and useful stores.
