Marlborough House, Walton on the Wolds, which was built by Cairns in 2005, has just come on to the market.
A substantial five double bedroom bespoke detached family home built in a ‘Victorian Rectory’ style with high ceilings, magnificent hall and landing and offering four large reception rooms, a bespoke oak fitted breakfast kitchen with granite worktops and detached double garage with play room/gym/office above. With gas fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing, the property has been designed with numerous Victorian design features of the period and offers substantial family accommodation with approximately 2,950 sq. ft. of accommodation. With an electric gated private drive for numerous cars, the property also offers two en-suite shower rooms and family bathroom with bay windows to front and rear with a west facing landscaped rear garden ideal for afternoon and evening sun.
Mentioned in the national census as “outstanding in character of the village” Marlborough House was highlighted in the Charnwood Conservation area appraisal along with its neighbouring properties by Cairns Heritage Homes. “The adjacent new builds of 12A and 12B seek to replicate the style of agricultural buildings and the development works well in this setting. This is juxtaposed to the adjacent Marlborough House which draws on a grander architectural style.” With a rear elevation as impressive as the front, design features include large bay windows with sandstone heads and sills and bespoke sliding slash double glazed windows. Other influences of the period include a spacious reception hall with galleried landing and superb Victorian tiled floor, high ceilings and deep moulded cornicing, the exterior brick work being highly detailed.
