This utterly charming Grade II Listed Cotswold-stone house enjoys a superb location in the heart of the picturesque village of Dyrham. The original part of the property is thought to date back to c1680 but over subsequent centuries it was extended, and more recently it has been beautifully renovated by the current owners. It is now a very spacious, immaculately presented and extremely characterful family home.
“It was actually a combination of the location and the stunning garden that initially attracted my family to this property. The house itself is L-shaped and the garden wraps around it so the views from the main living areas are really lovely. And in terms of the location, we enjoy this beautiful village setting but at the same time we have easy access to Bath, Bristol and the M4 for London, so it is absolutely ideal.”
“The house was definitely in need of renovation when we purchased it just over four years ago, so we’ve done everything from repairing the roof and restoring all of the beautiful old leaded windows to installing a brand new kitchen and bathroom suites. We’ve added more contemporary elements here and there, but everything is very much in keeping with the style and sense of history of the building itself.”
“The kitchen, the garden room and the living room all open onto the garden, so during the summer there’s a lovely connection between inside and out. And over the years we’ve done a lot of work to thin out the mature garden, to really open up the space and make it much more family-friendly, with a lovely hidden vegetable patch and wildflower meadow. It’s very peaceful and private, and it’s a feature of the property that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed during our time here.”
“The kitchen is the real hub of the home,” continues the owner. “It’s right in the middle of the house and looks out over the garden, so I can always keep an eye on the children. The Miele appliances and large expanse of countertops makes baking here an absolute pleasure. It also leads straight into the garden room where we have a big dining table, so the two spaces together create a fabulous area for entertaining.”
“Dyrham is a very friendly village and extremely picturesque. We have a summer fete every year and there’s also a garden club that meets once a month in the summer; everyone brings a bottle and we all get together in one of the neighbour’s gardens. We’re also lucky enough to have Dyrham Park right on the doorstep, which is a beautiful 17th century country mansion that’s set in around 274 acres of spectacular gardens and parkland.”
“In one corner of the garden, a good distance away from the main house, we have a self-contained studio annexe,” says the owner. “We have rented it out, so it could be an ideal holiday let or simply extra accommodation for visiting guests.”
“I think we’ll definitely miss the space both inside and out, and the summer days with the doors flung open and the children running in and out, but we’ll also miss the location,” the owner continues. “We have the country park on one side and open farmland on the other, but in around fifteen minutes we can be in the centre of Bath. It really has been absolutely idyllic.”
