A Glimpse at the property
An elegant Grade 2 listed Georgian home within beautiful Somerset countryside on the edge of Bath and within the Cotswolds.
This idyllic Georgian country retreat is hidden in a quiet Somerset valley on the outskirts of Bath, featuring 7 bedrooms and 5 incredibly indulgent bathrooms, along with spacious and soft furnished living areas, a stylish bar lounge, and a separate children’s games room all within extensive gardens.This accommodating house encompasses a central sun terrace with outdoor table and chairs for 14 and a BBQ, which makes the most of the lovely rural setting and is a natural magnet for the whole group in fine weather.
The main house has a large lobby, several welcoming lounges, and a cloakroom on the ground floor, with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms above, whilst the renovated west wing with French doors onto the terrace, has a fine contemporary kitchen and breakfast room, with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom above. Opposite the kitchen, and off the main lobby, is a bright and airy south-east facing orangery, providing an elegant dining area, with an entrance into the walled garden to one side. Garden paths lead around the house to a large north-east facing terrace with outdoor loungers and stone seating. A gravelled path takes you farther up into the grounds where a large field is good for playing sports or for a marquee for any special events.
Inside the house, the ground floor spaces have been re-arranged to comfortably accommodate 21st century life. A new entrance at the centre of the house opens into a large lobby from where you can access the chic contemporary kitchen, a TV room, a bar, drawing room and a cloakroom. Old and new come together seamlessly with smooth travertine stone floors, limed oak furniture and luxurious natural fabrics throughout.
The main house has a steep winding staircase leading to 5 bedrooms. The 2 large principle bedrooms with en-suites are on the first floor, with 3 more bedrooms and 2 large bathrooms on the second floor under the eaves. In the hayloft above the kitchen is a striking twin room with an apex roof and a unique oculus window at the gable end. Another charming double bedroom in the hayloft has a striking keyhole oculi with views of the countryside and a large window over the courtyard. Between the bedrooms is an elegant contemporary shower room, neatly arranged and smartly tiled in pale grey. There is an oval corner hand-basin with shelf space under, a walk-in shower and a WC.
