New Development of 9 Stunning Homes in Marlborough

The Old Dairy: New Homes, New Lifestyle, Traditional Character

Jones Robinson is delighted to be representing The Old Dairy in Winterbourne Monkton, near Marlborough in Wiltshire. We are selling a delightful collection of traditional and barn-style properties - new builds and conversion - on behalf of Rivar New Homes. This Newbury-based bespoke house builder has an exemplary track record, with extensive experience in unique sites, sensitive refurbishments and brand new homes.

Purchasers at The Old Dairy will have the choice of 9 properties for private sale, each marrying rural charm and immense character with a contemporary specification and luxurious home comforts. This small cluster of properties – either with 3, 4 or 5-bedrooms – occupies a tucked-away plot accessed by a private road. Adding to the sense of seclusion are acres of fields and farmland wrapping around the entire site, with an extra connection to nature for plots 5 and 6 in the shape of exclusive access to private woodlands.

The concept for The Old Dairy draws heavily from the very best rural farmstead conversions, with timber cladding, car barns and pitched roofs adding authenticity. Evidenced primarily in the house names - The Dairy Barn, The Hay Barn, The Grain Barn, The Cart Shed, Galloway House, Dexter House, Sussex House, Kerry House and Gloucester House -  the site layout also echoes that of a naturally evolved farm setting, where the buildings have been sensitively converted for residential use over time. 

Of particular interest is The Cart Shed – one of the plots that enjoys a slice of private woodland. This original barn will be skillfully converted into a single-storey dwelling, with an open plan living/dining/kitchen area, family bathroom, principal bedroom with en suite, two further bedrooms and private driveway parking.

Those moving in order to improve their work-from-home set-up should note that Gloucester House, Sussex House, Galloway House, The Dairy Barn and The Hay Barn all have a dedicated study within the floor plan. Each property at this development, however, does lend itself to a flexible living arrangement.

The specification in every property affords effortless style and sustainable living. For instance, the stunning kitchens are fitted with the latest energy-saving integrated appliances, while the under floor heating is complemented by high levels of insulation. Small but significant details throughout each home also include timber-framed windows, fitted wardrobes, wiring for fibre broadband, Porcelanosa wall and floor tiles, and heated towel rails.

Every house’s style is individual, however, and buyers will see different features in each – a boot room and double-height entrance hall in Sussex House, a snug in The Grain Barn and a walk-in dressing room to Galloway House, for instance.

Debbie Weight at Rivar New Homes acknowledges that The Old Dairy represents the lifestyle and setting we now crave: “Many more people dream of getting away from the bustle of city life and to be able to work from home in a rural idyll. Few developments fulfill this dream more than The Old Dairy.”

The Old Dairy is a complementary addition to the village of Winterbourne Monkton, which benefits from a cosy village pub, a 12th century church and some of Wiltshire’s finest countryside on its doorstep.

While the epitome of rural life, The Old Dairy is in close proximity of centres of cultural excellence and professional opportunity. The homes are just 7 miles from Marlborough, 9 miles from Devizes and 10 miles from Swindon. Bristol, Bath Spa and Reading can all be reached by rail in less than 38 minutes from Swindon train station, with London Paddington less than an hour by train. Other stations are within easy reach at nearby villages Hungerford, Pewsey and Bedwyn.
