A stunning and substantial part of a Grade II listed Manor House in a truly lovely setting, being on the edge of the city, whilst commanding breath taking views across a rural valley. Formal gates lead onto a cobbled driveway that leads up to the garage at the side of the property. Above the garage, with self-contained access, is a newly renovated two bedroom annexe, which was originally the The Cider House, as its name now suggests.

The property has a great layout, the major part on two floors, with a substantial vaulted ceiling bedroom or office on the top floor in the converted roof space. The formal drawing room and dining room are linked by a grand reception hall and offer large open fireplaces, mullion windows and good proportions. At the rear of the house, opening onto the garden, is a kitchen/breakfast room with steps up to a garden room, creating a lovely informal living and entertaining space. Off the kitchen is a cosy snug with a wood burning stove. Upstairs are five bedrooms, the master bedroom boasting an en suite shower room and there are two further bathrooms.

Adjoining the house with separate access is a charming two bedroom annexe that has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. At the rear of the property are landscaped south facing gardens. At the top of the garden is a heated swimming pool.

The Manor is situated in a highly desirable semi-rural village location on the eastern outskirts of Bath. The village has an historic church, a highly regarded primary school and is a renowned area for walking and horse riding. Properties rarely become available for sale in this area of outstanding natural beauty. The property nestles quietly on the edge of the village next to the church. Given the very close proximity to the city the property is also particularly well placed for easy access to the nearby schools in Bath, which include; The Royal High School, Kingswood School, St Saviours School and St Stephen's Primary School. It is also very conveniently placed for very easy access to the M4 motorway junction 18 (approximately 8 miles) and the city of Bristol. Other amenities nearby include the shops and conveniences in Larkhall village. The city centre is approximately 2 miles away and offers an excellent selection of restaurants and cafes along with many independent and national retail outlets, the newly opened Southgate Centre, The Theatre Royal, Thermae Spa, Sports Centre and Bath Spa Station giving you direct access to London Paddington, Bristol and South Wales.

Proceed out of Bath on the A4 London Road towards Chippenham and after the playing fields on the right and at the set of traffic lights turn left onto the Gloucester Road. Continue along this road towards the A46 and take the left turning to Swainswick. Continue downhill and take the second turning on the left, back on yourself and the property is seen straight ahead of you.
