10 Rectory Close is situated in Alexandra Park, an exclusive development to the north of Marlborough, roughly a mile from Wroughton and lying within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Alexandra Park is surrounded by some of Wiltshire's most stunning countryside. Alexandra Park is named after Princess Alexandra's Hospital which previously stood on the site.

A footpath around the perimeter of Alexandra Park allows the surrounding countryside to be enjoyed within moments of leaving the front door.
Despite its quiet and rural location, there is a convenience store with off-licence and a hotel offering bar, restaurant and leisure facilities within a five-minute walk. The numerous shops and amenities of Wroughton are close at hand, as are junction 15 and 16 of the M4. Swindon railway station is under 4 miles away providing direct train links to London Paddington in under an hour, and Bristol in under 40 minutes.

The large kitchen and breakfast room has been fitted with a wide range of storage space and features an impressive island, gas AGA and limestone tiling. There is space to dine both here and in the separate dining room, used by the current owners as a gym. A utility area leads off the kitchen, housing the washing machine, dryer, further storage and providing access to the side entrance to the property. Double doors from the kitchen lead through to the reception room, with a feature gas fire and wooden flooring. The rear garden can be accessed via both the double doors in the reception room and the bi-fold doors in the kitchen/breakfast room. There is also a study at ground floor level providing an ideal work from home space.

The property is approached via a quiet cul-de-sac and has driveway parking for four vehicles. Further parking is available on the street. A large double garage with roll-up door provides an area for vehicle storage, a workshop or even a home office as it was previously used. A fence and hedging surround the front of the property, whilst the rear garden is enclosed by tall laurel hedging offering excellent privacy. Attractive slate patio tiles extend from the front of the property around the side and wrap around the rear, proving an excellent space for al fresco dining off the kitchen.
