A superb detached country house situated approximately 7 miles from Bath with stunning views over open countryside.

Description

Orchard House is a superb detached country house situated in a rural position just seven miles from Bath. This handsome house was originally constructed in 1884 of stone elevations under a tiled roof and was formerly a lodge house to nearby Farleigh Plain. The house has been successfully extended in recent years to provide well-proportioned and beautifully presented accommodation over three floors.

The three principal rooms are situated around a well presented ground floor central reception hall including Mandarin limestone flooring which continues into the kitchen. This double length room has a bespoke design with a dining area at one end and low and high line kitchen units including integral appliances.

The drawing room has a wood burning stove and double aspect over neighbouring fields and with the door open in to the sitting room the light just floods in. The first floor landing offers far-reaching views, as does the master bedroom. There are three further first floor bedrooms and three bathrooms, and two more bedrooms in the attic.

For those with dependent relatives a self-contained suite can be divided off with lift access from ground to first floor.

OUTSIDE
The garden is enclosed with hedging and fencing, with electric wooden gates leading to a paved driveway providing plenty of parking and leading to
a double detached garage. There is a terrace wrapped around two sides of the house as well as a lawn. There are lawns as well as a hard tennis court leading down to a triangle with planted specimen trees.
