Tenure: Freehold

Holt Manor is a significant Grade II listed Manor House which dates back to the 17th Century with later additions from the 18th and 19th centuries. It is approached over a gravelled carriage driveway through impressive entrance gates to a turning circle which reveals the handsome facade. The driveway continues to a courtyard at the side of the house which is surrounded by outbuildings and has a secondary access onto the lane.

Holt Manor is constructed of traditional stone with a Welsh slate roof. It has been modernised beautifully whilst retaining charm and character, including original sash windows and high ceilings. The accommodation flows very neatly, centred around an impressive hallway with a fine antilevered staircase. The principal drawing room has five French doors leading out to a beautiful formal garden with views of the parkland beyond. The dining room is on the opposite side of the hallway, and gives access to the library and study. Adjacent to the family sitting room and playroom, the kitchen is perfect for family life and is fully equipped with integrated appliances and has excellent views over and access out to the walled garden. Beyond the kitchen is a substantial domestic space including a large utility room and boot room.

Upstairs the master bedroom has a lovely view of the gardens and parkland to the east and south and is filled with morning light. It has an impressive bathroom leading to an excellent dressing room. There are 6 further bedrooms on the first floor, 3 with en suite bathrooms and a further family bathroom. The second floor offers 2 further possible bedrooms, an additional bathroom and a sitting room, perfect for guests or teenage children.

Holt Manor is located in a private and peaceful setting on the edge of the village of Holt, in a part of Wiltshire known for its pretty villages and large country estates. It sits in an elevated position, enjoying beautiful views over its parkland and the surrounding countryside.

The historic town of Bradford-on-Avon is 3 miles away and is famed for its Georgian architecture and historic bridge over the River Avon. It has excellent local shopping and an array of superb restaurants. Further afield is the Georgian City of Bath which offers an extensive range of amenities including shopping, restaurants and theatre. There is Premiership rugby on the Recreation Ground and Bath also has two excellent universities.

The area is renowned for its well regarded schooling with Stonar School within 3 miles. In addition Prior Park, King Edwards, Monkton Combe, Kingswood and The Royal High School all in Bath. Further afield are St Mary’s Calne, Dauntseys, Millfield and Marlborough College. There are also good state schools in the area.

Road and rail links from Holt Manor are excellent. There is a regular service to London Paddington both from Chippenham and Bath Spa stations. Access to the M4 is via junction 17 (15 miles) providing a fast link to Bristol, London and Heathrow Airport. Bristol Airport is 30 miles away.

The gardens at Holt Manor have been designed and maintained beautifully over the years and are separated from the parkland on the eastern boundary by a stone ha-ha. The main terrace, which can be accessed from the drawing room, overlooks the immaculate Italianate garden with formal gravel paths intersecting neat lawns.

The terrace leads through to an arboretum which provides a peaceful woodland walk through mature deciduous trees.

The walled garden to the rear of the house is a perfect hideaway, with intricate planting, a neat vegetable garden and an automatic watering system. Beyond the walled garden is an orchard with a number of mature fruit trees and the hard tennis court.

There are a number of beautifully constructed and maintained outbuildings at Holt Manor. Directly north of the main house is a very pretty former Brew House and nearby is a former stone built stable block of similar proportions. Beyond these is a large traditional Coach House, which could be used for a number of purposes. With its own access from the lane is a further traditional stone barn of 76’9” x 20’3” with an adjacent store. To the north is a further range of brick built stables, along with a large equipment barn.

The further parkland and paddock land is currently let to a third party and lies predominantly to the East of the house, providing a private and attractive setting.

This five bedroom cottage provides excellent additional accommodation and is entirely separate to the main house. The accommodation is spacious and light over two floors. It includes a car port and has its own access.
