Vendors' thoughts: “We spent a long time searching for a house which was close enough to walk to amenities (schools, shops, pubs, takeaways), had good transport links to London, Oxford and Bristol yet also provided us with beautiful country walks from our front door. We eventually found Woodmarsh House and after falling in love with the potential, we have had 6 wonderful years here and will be sorry to leave. Inside we have been spoilt for space which has allowed each of us to create amazing areas, whether for work, play, study or hobbying, as well as allowing us to host bigger family events and very special Christmases. Just prior to the pandemic, we transformed the front courtyard to create a peaceful retreat which has been well used by all of us. We were able to socialise when indoor mixing wasn’t allowed – but even when restrictions ended, everyone still gravitates around the pond! Malmesbury has a thriving friendly community – we’ve enjoyed bonfire night fireworks and the Christmas market the best, but there are great pubs, a growing weekly market and lovely people.”
In a nutshell: Sensational Townhouse living with wonderful generous proportions and superb amenities on the doorstep.
Woodmarsh House is a sensational and substantial townhouse located on the outskirts of the vibrant market town of Malmesbury. Generous living spaces, cosy corners and bright and light rooms make this a wonderful family home which lends itself superbly to everyday living and equally to entertaining family and friends.
The entrance hall sets the tone to a welcoming and stunning home with an abundance of character and charm throughout.
The dining room with wood burner and drawing room with open fireplace, both with impressive bay windows, overlook the pretty terraced garden and are superb rooms in which to relax and host. Careful thought has been put into creating comfortable spaces with fabulous wood floors and beautiful period features.
The flagstone hallway leads through to the study which works perfectly as a home office. The wood burner makes this a cosy room in the winter and it is a cool room in the warmer months.
The kitchen/ breakfast room is clearly the heart of the house and a fabulous place to put the world to rights over morning coffee or whilst cooking up a feast. The Parlour Farm kitchen is well equipped with excellent discreet storage and plenty of work top space. The kitchen opens on the garden room which is bathed in natural light and is a perfect extension of the kitchen/ dining space.
The lower ground floor comprises a media room and a games room which is currently used for additional storage. The utility room is also on the lower ground floor and is superbly equipped to keep the family laundry at bay!
The first floor comprises five beautifully designed bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and two further bath/ shower rooms. All the rooms are bright and light and offer ample discreet storage.
The second floor comprises a bedroom with dressing room and attic space which is currently used as an artist studio with a wash basin. The attic is a wonderful bright space and could be converted into further accommodation subject to obtaining any necessary consents.
Outside the front garden has been wonderfully landscaped with a feature pond, hot tub and a stunning timber open-fronted summer house with heating, wifi and lighting connected. This makes for a magical outdoor haven. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and fruit trees and the green house come in handy for the garden enthusiast! The double garage offers secure private parking alongside the gated gravel driveway.
