Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Freshford Hall is a stunning Grade II listed house on the edge of the village. The house is constructed of traditional Bath stone and is classically symmetrical. The original house is thought to have been built around 1790 with an additional two wings built around 1885. The rear balcony has fine Corinthian pillars and balustrade which gives the garden and surrounding
countryside a fine elevation.

Internally the accommodation is neatly spread across four floors and has retained all its fine Georgian character and charm. Whilst the house is perfect for a family, the accommodation is such
that it is also perfect for just a couple.

The principal rooms on the ground floor are of particular note, the drawing room and dining room, both having floor to ceiling windows which allow for a lovely view and provide a wealth
of natural light. A conservatory leads directly from the drawing room and brings the garden into the house. This is a perfect place for Sunday lunch, whatever the weather! The bespoke kitchen is well placed next to the family room/dining room.
These two rooms are the real heart of the house and perfect for family life. The garden floor is unlike any other house with the rooms enjoying
a wealth of natural light and each enjoying a fine view of the garden. The secondary kitchen is perfect for additional storage, the study is a great
place to work with a fine view and the playroom provides a perfect hideaway
for children.

The bedrooms are nicely spread across two floors with the master bedroom on the first floor complete with en suite bathroom and dressing room. There are two further bedrooms on the
first floor with three further bedrooms on top floor. There is also a seventh en suite bedroom on the garden floor off the playroom. Each bedroom has a
commanding view of the garden and the
valley beyond.

Freshford Hall sits on the edge of the charming village of Freshford and has beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Freshford is a pretty village only 6 miles south of the Georgian city of Bath. The village has an active community with a good primary school, village shop and good
pub. There is also a train station, with regular services to Bath Spa. Bath has more extensive shopping and cultural activities including the
Theatre Royal and Premiership Rugby
at the Recreation Ground.

Road and rail links are excellent from Freshford Hall. With the M4 (junction 18) only 15 miles to the north and Bath Spa station is 6 miles from the village with regular services to London Paddington in 90 minutes. With electrification of the railway
between London and Bristol in 2017 this journey time is expected to be 1hour 10 minutes.

The local area has a plethora of excellent schools, not only is Freshford Primary School within easy reach, but Bath has a number of schools for all ages including The Paragon, Monkton Combe, Prior Park, King Edwards, Kingswood and The
Royal High School. Further afield, Dauntseys, Stonar, and Kings Bruton are all within easy reach. Further education is available at The University
of Bath, one of the premier universities in the country. The university also has excellent sport facilities available to all.

Freshford Hall is elevated above its own garden and enjoys views across the majority of its grounds. The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees including two wonderful copper beech trees. The swimming pool
has been newly renovated and is a perfect sun trap. The Astroturf tennis court is neatly set to the
south of the house.

There is a field below the garden which is laid to permanent pasture. It has also been stock fenced, ideal for livestock. Across the village lane is a further paddock which again could be used for livestock if required.

The Cottage
The separate cottage has neat accommodation over two floors. With three bedrooms and a
bathroom this would be ideal for a house keeper or guests. Alternatively it could easily be
rented separately. There is a separate entrance to the village lane which provides privacy.
