A truly beautiful property, set in spectacular grounds covering approximately 15 acres. It boasts an impressive tree lined driveway, woodland area, tennis courts and with a lake at the bottom, it also has four garages and two parking bays. The house is situated in the peaceful village of Stowey, near Chew Magna, and is only a 20 minute drive from the historic City of Bath, equidistant from Bristol City Centre. The current owners bought apartments 3 & 4, some 6 and 11 years ago, respectively, only to convert them into one large home, after a pretty serious refurbishment programme. The property, previously a 14th-century fortified house, was remodelled by the famous architect Thomas Henry Wyatt, who was president of the Royal Institute of British Architects, back in the 1850's. Apartments 3 & 4 have now been combined to create one absolutely fabulous property that spans almost 6,000sq/ft, with a 1300sq/ft private courtyard area to one side, off both the dining room and bedroom two.

It offers a bespoke, handmade kitchen / breakfast room, a second sitting room with fireplace, an office, a utility room with boiler off and a mirrored gym / bedroom 6 with a wet room off. There are a further 5 bedrooms and four bathrooms to compliment this simply outstanding home.
