Situation

This is a quiet corner of Marlborough. In 2001 the original Georgian Grade II listed Wye House was converted into six spacious apartments. The walled garden behind, was further developed into two Regency-style terraces of thirteen properties, each built to a very high specification, overlooking the historic gardens at the centre. It is a place of great charm. No 8 situated in the upper terrace, benefits from an elevated position. Marlborough town has good communications with easy access to the M4 (J15) and train services from Swindon (about 12 miles away), Pewsey (8 miles) and Great Bedwyn (7 miles).

Outside

The gardens are a special feature of Wye House. They are long-established, well maintained and include specimen trees, pollarded limes, a central lawn and borders filled with shrubs and herbaceous perennials. It is a delightful area, attractive to insect and birdlife. There is allocated parking for No 8 and visitor parking are set out on the large gravel drive in front of Wye House.
