Yew Tree House comprises a substantial detached Victorian home situated within the heart of South Marston village. The property has a flexible arrangement of spacious accommodation to include a double roomed ground floor annex and a spacious walled garden.

The ground floor is entered through a welcoming hall with exposed floor boards which extend into the two front reception rooms. The sitting room includes original architrave and ceiling rose and has an attractive fireplace and the study has a fireplace with a fitted gas coal-effect fire. To the rear of the property is a further family room with flagstone floor and wood burning stove and an extensively fitted kitchen with integral double oven and hob and room for a substantial farmhouse table. The garden room is a lovely light living space with sliding patio doors opening on to the rear garden.

Completing the ground floor is a useful boot room/rear porch with walk-in pantry, a ground floor bathroom and two further rooms including a kitchenette and cloakroom, forming a useful annex for dependent relatives, an au pair or to be let out for additional income. The annex also benefits from its own private entrance.

On the first floor is a master bedroom with fireplace and en suite shower room, three further double bedrooms and a spacious family bath/shower room.

Outside, to the front of the property, is a gravelled driveway providing plenty of off road parking. To the rear is an enclosed walled garden, landscaped to include two areas of patio, lawn and well-stocked flower and shrub borders. There is a summer house and a garden pond, and to the rear of the garage is a further spacious kitchen garden with shed.

There is a double detached garage with work-from-home office/studio/games room over and driveway parking for four further vehicles.

The property benefits from a gas heating system to radiators with a mix of UPVC and sealed unit double glazing.

We understand that Yew Tree House has a right of way over The Orchard, which is a private road, but no responsibility for maintenance costs.
