Tenure: Freehold

Summary: a superb and historic Grade II* Listed house with secondary accommodation and immaculate landscaped gardens, overlooking the renowned St Catherine's Valley near Bath. The owners have obtained consent to enhance the existing accommodation. About 1.3 acres.

St Catherine's End House is a delightful 17th Century house in a wonderful unspoilt and peaceful position overlooking the renowned St Catherine's Valley. The house has delightful stone elevations and is extremely private and approached from a country lane through high wooden gates opening onto a spacious gravel drive and extensive parking. A little down the lane, handsome gate piers provide pedestrian access onto the lane and open onto the front formal garden and principal facade. Internally, St Catherine's End House offers fine architectural details such as beamed ceilings, a 17th century staircase and stone fireplaces.

Planning Opportunity:
The current owners have recently got planning and listed building consent to extend the house and create additional accommodation, linking with the home office to form a large kitchen / dining room and, on the other side of the house, a new drawing room and loggia (see plans).

The former coach house has been converted and recently refurbished to a high standard to provide a stylish independent two-bedroom cottage. Various other outbuildings provide a home office, greenhouse, carport, garaging and stores.

A stone flagged BBQ terrace lies off the kitchen overlooking the long sweeps on terraced lawns, bordered by bountiful lavender beds and ornate rose gardens with Box hedge surrounds. The lower areas of garden have been carefully cultivated to create areas of wild flower meadow, with an orchard, kitchen garden and Acer garden.


St Catherine's Valley is a beautiful and extremely peaceful location to the north east of Bath, perfectly situated for easy access to the Georgian City of Bath and also from the A46 to Junction 18 of the M4 motorway.

The valley is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are numerous walks from the property.

Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage site, has a wealth of educational, social, cultural and recreational facilities, including the famous Roman Spa, Pump Rooms and museums.

The area is highly sought after due to the strength of the schools which include Prior Park, Stonar, Monkton Combe, Kind Edwards, The Royal High School for Bath and Kingswood. Bath and Bristol both have renowned universities.

Bath Spa provides a direct mainline train link to London Paddington (from 90 minutes). Bristol Airport (45 minutes by car) is also within easy reach.
