Property description

This wonderful country property was constructed in 1921 for Mr Robert Membrey who was involved in the construction industry. Since then there have only been three other owners, the present owners having acquired it some 29 years ago.

This is a substantial house set in the most delightful gardens of 1.25 acres which entirely surround the property and which feature within it terracing, a tennis/croquet lawn, stabling, coach house/garaging and a triple garage. Its elevated position provides stunning views stretching over the surrounding hills and much of the city of Bath.

Internally the property has magnificent accommodation, which in particular features a stunning large reception hall with a solid oak staircase and galleried landing. In addition, there are 3 principle reception rooms, a beautifully built bespoke kitchen, and at first floor level 7 bedrooms, a number of which have en-suite facilities. Throughout, there are solid oak doors and corniced ceilings.

This is quite an outstanding family property, set within a superb location and a viewing is strongly recommended by the sole agent Cobb Farr.
