The location

Tinpit can be found at the end of St Martins, which leads off Marlborough's Historic Green, turning left just before Poulton Hill. The cul-de-sac begins with a mixed age of detached properties, then a row of early Victorian terraced cottages, before opening up with properties on the left and a row of similar detached houses on the right. The house can be walked to in under 10 minutes via a predominately level walk from the High Street, the distance is believed to be 750 yards.

The accommdoation

From the road we walk down the driveway, right before the double garage, down 6 steps, through a sliding double glazed door into a large entrance porch with plenty of space for coats, shoes etc. Through the front door into the hall with staircase descending to the lower ground floor and bedrooms. First however we will turn right into a good sized sitting room with recently fitted cast iron wood burning stove, attractive wall lighting and sliding doors out onto a good sized balcony overlooking the gardens and beyond. Back into the hall and right into what would be the dining room which is currently a music room, with wide windows again overlooking the garden. The kitchen/dining room is also a generous sized room with windows and double doors opening to a Juliet balcony to make the most of the aspect. Attractive contemporary style high gloss white units with contrasting worksurfaces. Inset sink with mixer tap over, space for cooker with extractor hood over, plumbing for dishwasher, space for a fridge and freezer. Plenty of room for a 6 seater table. Back into the hall with door opening to the side with covered steps up to the double garage, or down into the garden. Finally a cloakroom with window to the side, toilet and wash basin with mixer tap over.


Down the staircase to the lower hall with storage cupboard, linen cupboard and utility cupboard with plumbing for the washing machine. First door on the right opens into the master bedroom, a generous double, with windows and double doors out into the garden, large walk in wardrobe with lighting and a well appointed ensuite with walk in shower, sinks, toilet and heated towel rail. The second bedroom is next, again a double with large built in wardrobes. The fourth bedroom is currently used as a study, decent sized single bedroom with glazed door opening into the garden. The third bedroom can accommodate a double if required or a nice single bedroom with plenty of room for wardrobes etc. Finally into the refitted bathroom, modern white suite comprising bath with separate shower over, sink with vanity unit under, toilet and heated towel rail. OK that is inside, lets go outside.


The property occupies approximately 1/3rd acre plot in total. The front garden is well stocked with mature dwarf conifers and a good sized deck area to enjoy the evening sun(when it is there!), steps down from the road integrated into the brick paved driveway, then 6 steps lead down to the front door.

Rear Garden. Steps lead down from the side hall onto a large paved patio area with boiler room concealed below the steps housing a recently replaced(2012) gas boiler for the central heating this area also has a light and power point. The patio has a shed, inset flower and shrub bed and flower and shrub borders. 9 steps lead down onto an inclined lawned area with apple trees along with various mature trees and shrubs. A paved path leads down to a large level lawned area, currently open plan with the adjoining neighbour, but could easily be separated by the erection of a wire fence, if required.
