About Marsh Hall
This historic semi-detached residence bears a datestone of 1596 above the door and is of traditional stone built construction beneath a pitched stone slate roof. Whilst this building dates back to the end of the Tudor period it is understood that earlier timber framed buildings existed on the site for many years previously and some of the timberwork within the existing building has been re-used from then. It appears that the property has been modified throughout the centuries and the architects responsible for the renovation works believe it could have been 3 dwellings in the past.

Our clients purchased the property in 2009 and carried out extensive renovation works under listed building consents which involved the conversion of an integral garage into the living accommodation and extensive repair and redesigning of the accommodation. Great care has been taken to preserve the original features of the building including mullioned windows, roof trusses other detailing. This is complimented by quality modern fittings, underfloor heating through most of the downstairs accommodation and insulation to the outer walls and roof areas.

The main entrance door leads to a spacious inner hallway which features a stone flagged floor, exposed stonework to one wall and glazed double doors opening into both the lounge and kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of base units and wall cupboards with matching island unit and a gas fired aga range cooker. It has ample space to accommodate a large dining table with additional comfortable chairs and features views to the front and side. From here there is access to the rear entrance / boot room and also the utility room.

Moving across the hall to the large lounge you will find a superb exposed stone fireplace, beams to the ceiling and mullioned windows to the front. A door from here leads to a second reception room which could be a snug or formal dining room depending upon requirements which has a further office off it. Also on the ground floor there is a downstairs wc / wet room and a rear landing with stairs to the first floor and walk in storage cupboard.

Upstairs there is landing area in 2 sections which both feature high angled ceilings displaying the exposed roof timbers. The principal bedroom is open to the high angled ceiling and features exposed roof trusses. It has a walk in wardrobe and a sizeable en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2 also has a walk in wardrobe which could be adapted to an en-suite if required. Bedroom 3 is decent sized double bedroom, whilst the 4th bedroom is better described as a large single. These are served by the house bathroom.

As part of the renovation wooden framed double glazed windows were installed in the style of the various styles within the building – ie some being mullioned, some later sash style windows. It has a modern gas central heating system with underfloor heating throughout most of the ground floor (excluding the sitting / dining room and study. It was also rewired. The property is connected to mains water, gas and electricity, whilst drainage is to a mains water, gas and electricity, whilst drainage is to a septic tank within the garden.

Externally, the garden is located predominantly to the front of the building and features a lawned area with well stocked borders and mature trees (protected by a preservation order). There is a gravelled driveway / parking area to the side of the house and a wooden garden shed sat upon a concrete base. An inspection of the 2011 planning consent shows a replacement garage was planned to linked to the side of the house here.

Thurstonland is one of the areas most sought after villages and features a village school, cricket club, church and pub. There is wonderful open countryside on the doorstep with many walks to be enjoyed.
