Marvins Farmhouse is a charming and very spacious Grade II listed farmhouse set in the heart of the Deverill Valley. Surrounded by rolling hills and picturesque countryside the property is a rural gem. Origins of the house can be traced back to 1615 and despite its age, the property benefits from a wealth of natural light. There have been a number of well thought out additions to the property over the years, which has created a period property perfect for family life in the 21st Century.
The front door opens on to a large vaulted entrance hall with a skylight highlighting this grand space. From the entrance hall the dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility room lead off along with a wide hall to the impressive conservatory.
The kitchen, often the heart of family life, is complete with a new two door oil fired AGA and is a well-proportioned and light space. The drawing room connects via double doors to the impressive Marston and Langinger conservatory, which is well placed making the most of the stunning views across the valley and over the Upper River Wylye. Underfloor heating in this room allows it to be used all year round. A large utility room with plenty of storage leads out to the undercover car port, on the other side of which is a spacious office. Above the utility room and office there are two large lofts that present the opportunity to create additional accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The first floor is well laid out, there is a master bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom and an additional double bedroom with ensuite. Three further bedrooms and also a large family bathroom complete the accommodation on the second floor.
Studio and flat
Situated along the drive is a garage above which is a self-contained one-bedroom flat which has been let in the past. There is also a separate large studio currently used as an office.
Marvins Farmhouse is approached down a sweeping drive to a large gravelled area at the side of the house. Well-kept and pretty gardens surround the property with a large lawn stretching down to the banks of the Upper River Wylye. A rustic bridge crosses over the river allowing fishing of brown trout, from both sides of the river. A newly refurbished swimming pool is well placed on the eastern edge of the plot and a well-equipped summer house is situated near to the pool with a large open fireplace, electricity and impressive wrought iron candle chandelier. The fully folding doors help to ensure that this space can be used at all times of the year.
The property has excellent equestrian facilities. Through the large hay barn there are 5 stables with individual water troughs, a tack room and a large straw/machinery shed around a good sized fenced yard. In addition, there is a separate 5.3 acre paddock, well fenced with water and outdoor arena (50m x 25m), which has a rubber and sand surface.
