Newbridge House is a substantial Grade II listed house, constructed of Bath stone elevations under a slate tiled roof in a classical colonial style. The current owner has extensively, yet sympathetically, renovated Newbridge House maintaining many of its period features including a cantilevered staircase, cornicing, shutters and ceiling roses. The house is beautifully presented and provides elegant, well-proportioned accommodation over three floors, together with a self-contained apartment.
On entering the house via the front door, you are greeted by an exceptionally generous entrance hall which leads to the main reception rooms including the drawing room and withdrawing room, connected by wedding doors. Both rooms are of elegant proportions and have direct access onto the Georgian balcony with views over the gardens. The cinema room, games room and cloakroom are also accessed from the entrance hall.
The contemporary style kitchen and dining room with original bread oven on the lower ground floor provide excellent space for family entertaining and lead out to the wonderful south facing terrace which is partly colonnaded and perfect for outdoor dining. The utility room, home gym and large guest suite and additional cloakroom are also found on this level, together with a superb walk-in fridge and wine cellar.
On the first floor, the master suite has a large dressing room and magnificent en suite bathroom with wonderful sash windows overlooking the gardens with views beyond. There are six further bedrooms with five en suite bath/shower rooms. The second of the two staircases leads to a useful walk-in airing cupboard and further study.
The self-contained apartment includes a double bedroom, living room, kitchen and shower room. It has a separate entrance and a private garden and can also be accessed internally from the cinema room.
The large landscaped gardens at the rear of the house feature mainly lawned areas, which gently slope down to a natural pond at the far end. It is bordered by a variety of mature trees and box hedges with rockeries providing separation between the levels.
To the front of the property, Newbridge House is very private and approached through electric gates onto a large driveway with a double garage and ample parking.
