Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Owned by the same family for nearly 100 years, this beautiful Georgian house overlooks the Chew Valley, with lovely unspoilt views, in a peaceful and private setting. There is a cottage, walled garden and stable yard with development potential on various stone barns and buildings. About 51.7 acres.

Harptree Court is thought to have been built in 1797 by Charles Harcourt Masters of Bath, constructed in the Classical style of Ashlar elevations under a slate roof, with an early-19th century addition. The house has a beautiful symmetry, with typical features for a house of this provenance, including pedimented doorways and window casements, a patterned fanlight, moulded cornice, plain parapet and the garden-facing elevation has two semi-circular bays.

The principal rooms all face north or south to maximise the sunlight and views. The principal rooms include a drawing room, dining room, billiards room, morning room, kitchen, sitting room and entrance hall. Upstairs there are 6 principal bedrooms with 3 additional bedrooms. There are 7 bathrooms in total. There is a staff flat on the ground floor.

Stable Cottage adjoins the stable yard currently providing 7 boxes, workshop, kitchen and tack room. The whole yard is in need of some refurbishment but there is also considerable development potential, subject to planning permission.

The luxury treehouse is completely self-contained and is let out for most of the year, generating a sizeable annual income.

A range of farm buildings would be suitable for redevelopment.

The gardens and grounds are very special with long driveways, a large walled garden, spring-fed lakes, tennis court, parkland fields and mature woodland. Further land may be available by separate negotiation.


East Harptree is a highly sought after village in the beautiful Mendip Hills 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. The village has a Church of England primary school, a pre-school / nursery, village shop, church, village hall and cricket club. There are various local community clubs and social events to engage in if you so wished.

The regional hubs of Bristol and Bath provide comprehensive shopping, recreational, leisure and commercial opportunities. In Bristol, national retailers can be found at the Cribbs Causeway shopping centre and Cabot Circus; both offer a very wide range of retail and leisure facilities. The City of Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with world-famous Roman Baths and is regarded as a cultural hub in the southwest.

Communications are good with the M5 motorway (Junction 21) about 15 miles to the west, linking to the wider national motorway network.

Wells 9 miles, Bristol Airport 9 miles, Bristol (Clifton Village) 13 miles, Bath 16 miles
