Overview

2 Mill House is a beautiful, luxury duplex 3-bed maisonette with a large roof terrace immediately overlooking the river Kennet situated in the heart of the picturesque and highly sought-after town of Marlborough.

Completed in 2018, this exclusive development by Neptune (famed as a British-born and raised interiors and lifestyle brand) comprises of just 3 maisonettes with parking, kitted out with stunning Neptune interiors and high specification technology. Ideal for those looking to have the convenience of modern living with a plethora of amenities on the doorstep.

The Priory Gardens, riverside walk, and park are within 100m of the property.

Marlborough is a thriving market town situated within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is consistently voted one of the top places to live in the UK. The town and surrounding countryside whilst stunning, is also steeped in history.

The ancient Savernake Forest offers around 4,500 acres of woodland to explore, and Marlborough itself has a fantastic array of independent and boutique shops, cafes, restaurants, and public houses, sitting alongside the convenience of large, national retailers.

First Floor

One of the most striking things one notices immediately on entering 2 Mill House is the beautiful, vaulted ceiling and large windows in the reception room. There is an incredible sense of space and light which complements the stunningly presented interiors.

The open-plan design allows for a sociable space, perfect for entertaining. The kitchen is presented with an oak breakfast / preparation counter, marble tops, integrated appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, oven & hob, fridge freezer) and cleverly crafted storage to maximise the space efficiency.

Adjoining the main room there's a useful entrance hall, with storage space, 2 double bedrooms and a shower room, all immaculately finished. To further compliment the Neptune fixtures and fittings, the home is fitted with Loxone smart technology meaning the heating and lighting can be controlled remotely (with the flexibility to incorporate sound systems and other features).

There is an air-source heat pump for environmental efficiency and underfloor heating throughout too. From a single position in the reception room one can look across the roof tops of Marlborough to the spires of the two churches that bookend the high street.

Second Floor

The open staircase is quite a feature and leads to the galleried landing off which are the 3rd bedroom, further shower room and study (multi-purpose room). It may be possible to add a skylight style window to the study (subject to the necessary consents).

Outside

The large roof terrace is quite a feature and rare to find in the area. A great space for entertaining or al fresco dining, it also offers views onto the river Kennet and surrounding greenery and is orientated to make the most of the mid-morning to evening sun.

Double doors open from the property allow a natural and level extension of the reception space to the outside. The property comes with 1 allocated parking space and further parking spaces are available locally by permit with Wiltshire Council or via private rental agreement. A shared bike store is also available to the owners.

Location

For those looking for convenience of location, this property offers the gold standard. It is difficult to think of many things that Marlborough High Street lacks. It is the second widest high street in the UK, and is host to a fantastic range of shops, cafes, restaurants, and public houses, all within a very short walk of your front door.

The picturesque and historic high street itself provides many interesting and architecturally important buildings. Mentioned in the Domesday book of 1097 as 'Merleberge', Marlborough was later granted market town status in 1204 by King John. There is still a twice weekly market to this day selling everything from artisan bread to hardware and garden furniture.

The surrounding countryside is a huge draw to the area, with country walks, bike rides and other outdoor pursuits all readily available. The Marlborough Downs, Savernake Forest, The West Woods and many other beauty spots are within easy reach.

For transport, the M4 is easily accessible as is the A34. The train stations at Pewsey and Bedwyn offer direct services into London Paddington with the fastest taking under 1hr.
