Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most exciting and dynamic Grade II listed family house, superbly presented and benefitting from income generating cottages and stables. The fine 18th century Cotswold farmhouse has honey coloured stone elevations under a double gabled roof line and many architectural features remain, including fireplaces and beamed ceiling. Of particular note is the fine dressed stone arched door surround complete with iron-studded oak front door. Upon entering, the quality of finish and attention to detail are immediately apparent. The present owner undertook a comprehensive renovation and modernisation of the farm house and simultaneously converted the period outbuildings into first class ancillary accommodation. Polished porcelain floors, with underfloor heating, run throughout the ground floor and the bathrooms, and are complimented by oak floors on the first floor. A spacious and welcoming entrance hall has doors leading off to all of the ground floor rooms. The large kitchen breakfast room is very much the hub of the house, with a four oven Aga and extensive bespoke cabinets including a central island. There are doors to the utility room and the neighbouring dining room. The drawing room is a triumph of good design within a period house with a hooded chimneypiece and French doors open onto the formal gardens. The first floor is equally as well appointed as the ground floor with a luxurious master bedroom suite which has a vaulted ceiling, fitted wardrobes, mood lighting, a contemporary gas fireplace and dressing room and bathroom. There are two guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The picturesque hamlet of Beach comprises a variety of period houses and farms. Situated between Bath (5.5 miles), Bristol (9 miles) and the M4 motorway (6.5 miles to junction 18). The neighbouring villages of Upton Cheyney and Bitton are within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is locally known as the Golden Valley. Upton Cheyney has a farm shop and the Upton Inn public house.

The close proximity of Bath is a major attraction and the city offers a wealth of cultural, educational and recreational facilities with five independent schools and two universities.

Bath Spa station provides a regular service to London Paddington (from 87 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (from 15 minutes).

Sporting opportunities locally include premiership rugby and horse racing at Bath, golf at Tracey Park and Lansdown and hunting with the Duke of Beaufort's foxhounds.

A gravel drive forms a parking area in front of the house and provides access to the large garage, the ancillary accommodation and the stable yard. The landscaped gardens accessible from the kitchen have outside lighting and are arranges as formal lawns enclosed by clipped box hedges and wide flag stone paths and terraces, with an 'alfresco' dining area bordered by pleached trees. There is a large open lawn bordering the eastern elevation and enclosed by a high clipped hedge. For parties, weddings and events the garden to the north has been designed with an open lawn suitable for marquees (running water installed) with a gravel walk running the length of the garden and a gravel reception area bordered on all sides by lavender and other scented flowers and shrubs. There are excellent views for this secluded part of the garden.

Ancillary accommodation
Formerly a series of Cotswold farm barns and now converted to provide bedrooms and used on a 'bed and breakfast basis' generating a considerable income. Alternatively these rooms can be arranged as self-catering holiday lets. As all the rooms are interlinked they could be used as games room, home office, gym or studio by the main house. The present arrangement provides three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. 'The Haybarn' with bedroom, bathroom and sitting room and 'The Cottage' with bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, shower room and sitting room. There is a kitchen to service these rooms.

Stables and Outbuildings
A range of outbuildings supports the house and ancillary accommodation. A period barn is used as a double garage with sliding wooden doors. A row of former piggeries have been converted into a valuable laundry, stores and kennel.

The stables are to the west of the house and are accessible from the drive. These comprise 7 loose boxes, a tack room, rug room, feed room, groom's kitchen and WC, all of which are arranged around a central yard. A range of timber buildings provide hay stores and pens.
