Shaw Court is set at the end of an avenue of lime trees; the main drive to a set of three properties (Shaw Court, Shaw Grange and Shaw House) originally built in 1711 by a wealthy wool merchant. At the end of the lime avenue, a grand entrance with electric gates leads right, into Shaw Court, a property that offers an enticing mix of security, seclusion and space.

The property is constructed of wisteria clad honey coloured limestone elevations under a steep pitched Cotswold stone tiled roof. Subsequent additions over more recent years include the indoor swimming pool at one end of the property, having a vaulted ceiling and doors opening into the garden. The accommodation offers grand proportions, high ceilings throughout, and period features that include open fireplaces and stone mullion windows. The electric gates open onto a sweeping driveway lined with lighting that leads around to the triple bay garaging, all with light and power and a large parking area to the front. Immediately in front of the house is a flagstone terrace with ornamental pond that leads down to a formal garden enclosed on one side with an attractive stone barn (25’ X 16’) covered in wisteria and honeysuckle. The gardens lead onto a meadow garden that sweeps around the property, at one end having a two bedroom cottage (rental income of £650 per month) and the other a private garden, perfect for children.

Shaw is a medium sized village that offers a thriving community centred around Shaw Village Hall, Shaw School and playing fields. Shaw is eight miles from Bath and approximately three miles south of the market town of Corsham. Within the village is a Church of England Primary School and village hall. A wonderful amenity is the popular Lowden Garden Centre which also includes a restaurant and a farm shop including Lowden Butchers. The Shaw Country Hotel and restaurant is nearby as well as the village pub, The Golden Fleece which incorporates Il Vello d'Oro an Italian restaurant. Corsham has a variety of shops, schools, sports and leisure facilities. Bath and Chippenham offer easy access to the M4 Motorway and have mainline stations into Paddington, London. Its position 10 miles south of junction 17 of the M4 on the A350 provides an excellent centre to explore nearby Lacock and Avebury and the attractive towns of Devizes, Bradford on Avon (approx 7 miles, with rail services to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads) and the City of Bath. Bristol International Airport is approximately 30 miles North West.

From Bath, proceed east on the A4 London Road. At Box, take the right hand fork and travel along the A365. Go through the village of Atworth and continue into Shaw. As you leave the hamlet of Shaw, and after the Shaw Hotel on the right, you will see the entrance to Shaw Court on the right. Proceed along the lime avenue and the driveway to Shaw Court is on the right hand side behind electric gates.
