Description

An outstanding country house Grade II Listed and constructed in the Georgian style in 1863. Bitton Hill House has been in the same ownership since the mid 1960's and has been a much loved family home. Strategically placed on a southerly escarpment, Bitton Hill House enjoys advantageous views over the Golden Valley and the Kelston Round Hill whilst the River Boyd passes below.

A fine family home, the property offers traditional living with principal rooms centred around the reception hall and a fabulous cantilever staircase. There are bedrooms and suites, an annexe and a range of outbuildings which are adaptable and offer scope for refurbishment and other prospects subject to the necessary consents. The formal gardens were rich in flora and included Espaliers and Privet hedges. Opportunities still abound to recreate a wonderful Victorian garden. Whilst the swimming pool is a later addition, it occupies an elevated position and enjoys optimum sunlight. The former tennis court could be reinstated and the adjoining pasture which extends to 11.4 acres is big enough to accommodate a variety of livestock.

Bitton Hill House is constructed from pennant stone with free stone windows, mullions and dressings and enjoys a sunny orientation and the aforementioned views. Grounds are predominantly level with the outbuildings adjacent to the house and these are situated around the cobbled yard.

The reception hall is the central axis with reception rooms lying directly off. The drawing room has a full length bay overlooking the garden and grounds and has a south easterly orientation. Adjacent are the morning and dining rooms, the latter has casement windows overlooking the side gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is large and functional with an Aga and beyond there is the back kitchen, staircase to the annexe, a butler's pantry and cloakroom. Further principal rooms include the study, the former estate managers office and a billiard room. The first floor includes an annexe for a dependent relative, au pair or housekeeper. Within the main body of the house there are five bedrooms, the master bedroom has the benefit of an en suite facility. There is a guest suite and the third bedroom has a dressing room or nursery adjacent. There are other sundry outbuildings allied to the house as well as a large cellar.
