Gemma thinks:
Peaceful cul-de-sac location, a short walk from the Michelin-starred eateries, river and all-round gorgeousness of Marlow.

*Through no fault of it's own this beautiful home is back on the market*

Gemma loves:
Four good-sized bedrooms, and open plan living spaces filled with light. It’s a fabulous family home.

With a passion for property and marvellous Marlow running through the family’s veins, you just know this one is going to be a beauty. Situated in a well-kept and quiet cul-de-sac, the first thing that strikes you about No.27 is the substantial size of this family home and its more-than-ample driveway. There’s plenty of parking for drivers, drivers-to-be, and guests alike.

The wide entrance hallway with its welcoming arch is lovely and light due, in part, to the glazed front door and sidelights. The décor throughout further enhances the airiness. It’s modern and neutral, and very calming.

We love the large breakfast kitchen with its dramatic cabinetry and contrasting stone worktops. It’s a beautifully sleek and contemporary design with integrated appliances for the modern cook. You’ll find a tiled floor underfoot and French doors leading out to the garden. So grab that macchiato and enjoy it al fresco.

The utility room has bags of storage and is large enough to be a kitchen in its own right, making laundry days an absolute breeze. Meanwhile, a guest WC adds to the convenience.

A beautiful bay window makes the living room feel even more spacious and bright. Here, relaxation is king. There’s a stylish, contemporary fitted TV cabinet and luxury flooring, coupled with a real flame fire, to warm you on even the chilliest of days. It’s double aspect, and the open plan layout flows through to the dining room, with doors opening up to the garden beyond. It’s bathed in natural light and a lovely spot for supper.

Upstairs, you’ll find four good-sized bedrooms; three of which are double in size, whilst the single bedroom would make an ideal room for children or guests, or even a study. The principal bedroom, being particularly spacious, has a large en suite with shower for the most invigorating start to the day. When only a soak will cut the mustard, the family bathroom is the place to be. Both are fitted with white, modern suites and a neutral colour palette keeps everything grounded.

It’s good to know that the loft is boarded for additional storage as well. And, mirroring the footprint of the home, it’s nice and capacious.

In the rear garden, you can choose to dine on the patio area, underneath the pergola, or out on the decking. And when the entertaining’s over and the guests are gone, curl up on a comfy lounger and watch the sunset.

Channel your inner zen in the garden room bordered by mature trees. Whether it’s yoga or pilates, a gym, substantial hobby room or even a incredibly special home office, it makes a wonderful light-filled space, however you love to spend your time.

The garden room. We’re dreaming of sinking into a marshmallow-like sofa, freshly ground coffee and favourite novel in hand.

Marlow

Friendly vibes

Marlow

Marlow is one of the original down-from-Londoners’ honeypots. Something about its pretty historic streets, and the dreaminess of the Thames hung heavy with weeping willows and boat clubs, has for centuries pulled in those sick of the Smoke – like Percy and Mary Shelley, probably after peace, quiet and a better work-life balance than they could get in the capital, with its streets running with ordure and don’t even talk to me about the cost of barouche-landaus. Legions have followed ever since.

The river is a big draw for legendary Olympians and mere mortals alike. — you may see Sir Steve Redgrave wandering along the banks watching the eager weekend rowers, paddle boarders and boaters. There’s a winning food scene led by Tom Kerridge’s Hand and Flowers, the only UK pub with two Michelin stars, and popular year-round events including the Marlow Regatta and Pub in the Park.

Marlow is unquestionably well heeled. Smart residents have an array of places to be seen and to see each other. The High Street is buzzing and the schools are sought after. There are sports clubs to join, parks to play in, bookshops to browse around and numerous places to buy champagne. Yes, this is a bustling town, yet you’re also in the heavenly walking territory of the Chiltern Hills where you can dare to get your Le Chameaus muddy.

If you’re concerned about schooling, Marlow has it covered. Sir William Borlase is a grammar school right in the centre of town and is renowned for its excellent education, along with Great Marlow School. The primary schools (Spinfield, Danesfield etc…) all have fantastic reputations along with the fine selection of public schools in the area.

Idyllic & postcard pretty

  • Closest village/town: Lots of pretty villages in The Chilterns
  • Post Office: 1
  • Stores: The High Street has some classic favourites as well as some smart independents.
  • Supermarket: No one goes to super markets anymore do they! It's all about delivery from Ocado right?
  • Pubs: Too many to mention. The Hand & Flowers is the best known but there is everything from Champagne bars to old school boozers
  • Walks: Endless countryside walks in the hills
