Full description

A charming Grade II listed four bedroom country house built in the 1740s with later additions, offering 2,400 sq. ft. of accommodation over three levels. Many period features including exposed oak beams, original stone fireplaces and stone mullion windows. Desirable location close to Bath and formerly part of the historic Shockerwick House estate.

The owner says: “We moved here 20 years ago because it was a lovely house in an idyllic spot ideal for a family: close to Bath, but a rural idyll, quiet with beautiful views.” He continues: “When we arrived the house was a bit like discovering an old Daimler in a barn. It was obviously lovely in its
time, but now in need of updates and upgrades. We have extended the kitchen and turned the dining room into a snug. We put in a Searle & Taylor of Winchester hand painted fitted kitchen with granite worktops, double Belfast sink, and AGA. The room is now big enough for our family of four to have our own distinct areas, you can sit and read a book in the window seat at the stone mullion window, look out over the neighbouring orchard with views of Shockerwick House from the other window, or work on a laptop at the table or the ample work surfaces.”

“We have re-done the bathroom and taken the four bedrooms back to their original shapes so that they are now in keeping with how they would have been. My favourite room is the entrance hall, with its magnificent ashlar bath stone fireplace. With the oak beam, a wall of books opposite and views into the garden from the stone mullioned window with its window seat and the large panelled door to the gardens, it is a very welcoming room.”

“The garden is a mixture of formal and wild gardens. It is well stocked with mature shrubs including quince and a vine and there is a lower informal garden with a beautiful Victorian stone gazebo which has a lovely view across the valley to Ashley."

“Shockerwick is a tiny hamlet, but 1.5 miles from Box, which has two small supermarkets, and a garage. Our children were at the Royal High School in Bath which took just 12 minutes to drive to in the rush hour, and Bath Spa station takes about 20 minutes. The M4 motorway (J18) is 10 miles to the north.”

“It has been a pleasure to live here and enjoy seeing all the wildlife on frequent walks: the heron standing in the brook, the deer visiting and dippers and kingfishers too – we will really miss this lovely house and all it has to offer.”
