Phil thinks:
A wonderful blend of tranquility and convenience, within easy reach of Marlborough town centre.

Introducing Farrar Drive, a charming and spacious detached home nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac with a delightful edge-of-town location in sought after Marlborough.

Phil loves:
The gorgeous garden, bathed in sunlight and offering far reaching views.

This four-bedroom home offers a perfect blend of tranquility and convenience, with easy access to lovely walks, town amenities, and breathtaking views of the countryside and Savernake Forest from its elevated position.

As you enter, you'll be greeted by a thoughtfully designed interior that boasts a combination of open plan and intimate spaces, all flooded with natural light. 

The newly fitted Wren kitchen to the rear of the home is just a year old, and features stunning sage green cabinetry, offset by a sleek marble-effect countertop. There’s even a five burner hob, range cooker, double oven and built-in pantry allowing the resident chef to cook and entertain with ease.

The effortless style extends into the attached utility room, where you'll find direct access into the garage and back garden, perfect for muddy wellies and paws.

The living and dining areas flow seamlessly together, creating an inviting atmosphere, and can be enclosed with double doors for privacy. The main lounge features a new Dean wood burner, perfect for cosy evenings snuggled inside in the cooler months. The large dining room accommodates a table that can seat eight, ideal for entertaining family and guests. This flows into the garden room, where large windows and a glass sliding door frame stunning views and allows direct access to the patio, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience.

Upstairs, you'll find four well-appointed bedrooms. The master bedroom is spacious, with room for a king-size bed, an en-suite shower room, double windows, and a large built-in wardrobe offering double depth storage. The second bedroom enjoys lovely views over the Woods and countryside, while the extended third bedroom features double aspect windows, vaulted ceilings, a bonus dressing room and a wood floor. The fourth bedroom, currently used as a study, could easily accommodate a queen sized bed and enjoys pretty views across the garden and surrounding countryside. In each room you'll find plush new carpets, adding further comfort and style to the home.

The property also features two and a half bathrooms, including an en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower, a family bathroom with a shower over the bath, and a beautifully decorated downstairs cloakroom. There's also plenty of loft space with brilliant potential for future conversion should you desire.

Outside, the front garden offers paved and gravel parking spaces for up to three cars, while the private back garden provides a quiet retreat with a separate side access. The garden boasts two patios, one of which is large and elevated, ideal for outdoor entertaining or simply enjoying the picturesque surroundings.

Marlborough

Local life

Marlborough

Picturesque Marlborough is quite the quintessential English Market Town, nestled in the country of Wiltshire. Culture vultures will love to indulge in the Marlborough Literary Festival, Marlborough Open Studios arts event, The Marlborough College Concert Series and Marlborough Summer School.

The North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompass much of the countryside around Marlborough and provide an unspoilt backdrop to a range of pursuits. Try mountain biking on Salisbury Plain, flying at Clench Common and Canoeing on the Kennett and Avon Canal. The Unesco World Heritage Site of Avebury is also just five miles away. Meanwhile, The Ridgeway National Trail and Wansdyke are some of the very best walks in the country.

There’s a range of exceptional independent restaurants, some smaller chains such as Rick Stein’s for a taste of Cornwall, and larger, well-known Italian names for pizza and pasta like mama used to make.

The Guardian placed Marlborough in the top 10 of the country’s high streets for independent shops. On our must-visit list are Sumbler Butchers, White Horse Bookshop, The Merchant’s House, Kim Vine and Willow & Wolf for fashion. There’s also a vibrant café culture when you need a pit stop after all that mooching.

Hot on the heels of that accolade, The Sunday Times voted the town as one of the top places to live in the south west. You’ll find a Waitrose and Tesco nearby, or just book Ocado for some M&S treats. And when it’s someone else’s turn to cook, there’s always a tasty menu available at The Marlborough, The Royal Oak and The Oddfellows.

Schools are first-class. St John’s Secondary and Sixth Form Academy is rated Outstanding by Ofsted, as is Preshute Primary School. Meanwhile, Marlborough College and St Mary’s Calne and Dauntsey’s School are all exceptional independent schools, and boast some very famous alumni.

Transport links are great with the M4 within 9 miles and the A303 some 17 miles to the south. The spa town of Bath is around 25 miles. Trains from both Swindon and Pewsey whisk you directly into London in under 1.15hrs.
