Lovely terraces and private grounds. 15 minutes to Bath by car. Fortnight Farm Manor Built in 1742, this handsome Georgian house of honey-coloured stone has evolved over the centuries from simple farmhouse to a large, sophisticated and contemporary family home where you can bond together as a group or indulge in some private pamper time. Re-imagined in a Mediterranean style, this accommodating house encompasses a central sun terrace with outdoor table and chairs for 14 and a BBQ, which makes the most of the lovely rural setting and is a natural magnet for the whole group in fine weather. This sunny, south-west facing outdoor space makes a relaxing place for a morning coffee and papers, a natural re-charging hub for roaming kids grabbing a snack, an ideal hot spot for a catch-up over tea and cake, and a romantic rendezvous when raising your glass in a toast over dinner. Finally, at the end of the day, it's just heavenly for star gazing with your favourite tipple. The main house has a large lobby, several welcoming lounges, and a cloakroom on the ground floor, with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms above, whilst the renovated west wing with French doors onto the terrace, has a fine contemporary kitchen and breakfast room, with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom above. Opposite the kitchen, and off the main lobby, is a bright and airy south-east facing orangery, providing an elegant dining area, with an entrance into the walled garden to one side. Garden paths lead around the house to a large north-east facing terrace with outdoor loungers and stone seating. A gravelled path takes you farther up into the grounds where a large field is good for playing sports or for a marquee for any special events. Inside the house, the ground floor spaces have been re-arranged to comfortably accommodate 21st century life. A new entrance at the centre of the house opens into a large lobby from where you can access the chic contemporty kitchen, a lavish TV room, a bar, drawing room and a cloakroom. Old and new come together seamlessly with smooth travertine stone floors, limed oak furniture and luxurious natural fabrics throughout. There are fine linen and velvet drapes alongside modernist artworks, little stone mullioned windows in decadent bathrooms and winding staircases up to designer bedrooms in jewel rich colours. Every room glows with colour and detail, inspiring room names in the precious stones which they most resemble. This lovely home is house is nestled within a steep sided wooded valley leading south to the small village of Combe Hay and surrounded by meadows, farms and open countryside. There are formal walled gardens to the front dating back to the 18th century, planted with box hedges, wisteria and climbing roses. A large terraced area off the kitchen and breakfast room has outdoor tables and seating for at least 14, bbq, a couple loungers and an umbrella. A stone path around the house leads to a second terrace outside the drawing room with 4 loungers, outdoor seating and stone steps to a raised lawn. A gravelled path with between yew trees goes into an apple orchard. A gap in the hedge leads into a large field with space for football, and rounders with vehicle access onto the historic track road once used by stone quarries. This area would also be suitable for a small marquee. The conservatory also has some outdoor seating. The house is south facing so benefits from the sun for much of the day.More
