The location & property
Poulton Hill is located on the east side of Marlborough, leading out towards Axford and Ramsbury. Forest View is just opposite the turning to Tinpit which is within 5 minutes walk of the High Street. The property was constructed in the late 1960's and extended to the front and side, shortly after. These extensions have settled causing cracking, which has never been redecorated. We have asked a local surveyor to give his opinion on this and he believes that this is not ongoing movement. However we recommend any buyer obtain their own independent survey before proceeding with a purchase.
After parking on the driveway we walk along the path into an entrance porch and through the front door into the L shaped hall. Turning left we walk into a good sized sitting dining room with windows to the front and side and large sliding doors out into a south facing, single glazed conservatory/garden room. Back into the hall and left into the second bedroom with window to the rear and a built in wardrobe. The main bedroom is next with window to the front. This is a good sized double bedroom which has the extension with visible cracking. The Kitchen breakfast room enjoys a lovely view over the garden and beyond. It was refitted possibly in the late 1980's with a good range of modern wall and base units and integrated appliances including oven and hob. Space for a small table and chairs, original walk in larder and door into the side porch/utility room. This leads out to the front and rear with windows to the side, fitted storage cupboards and space for appliances. Back into the hall and left to the separate cloakroom and on to the bathroom. Both of which have the original coloured suite.
Gardens, parking and garage
Front garden. Path from the parking area leading to the front porch and both sides of the property. Rest mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. Outside lighting.
Rear garden. Stepping out from the side porch we walk onto a large patio area with timber shed, gated access to the front, steps down on two sides onto a path leading down the garden. The first section is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. Walking through an archway to an orchard and what was a large vegetable garden. In total approximately 140' x 50' with a southerly aspect, enjoying views towards Savernake forest.
Garage. Single brick built garage with power and lighting. This does require some maintenance works.
Parking Driveway leading to the garage providing parking for 1 car. The parking area, which extends up the hill, is owned by the adjoining bungalow in line with the dividing fence.
