A fascinating and beautifully appointed 14th century home with superb coach house and summer house, enjoying breathtaking views.
The Hermitage is a fascinating house built in the 14th century with later additions of random stone elevations with leaded light stone mullioned windows and a stone tiled roof. The property is listed Grade II as being of architectural or historical interest.
The accommodation, which is arranged on three floors, is superbly appointed with high quality fitted bathrooms and an oak kitchen. It retains many period features including stone staircases, exposed beams, open fireplaces and panelled doors. Of particular interest is a magnificent first floor drawing room which was designed by William Bertram. It enjoys a high vaulted ceiling, tall windows and stunning views. This room is very suitable as a place to work from home.
The Hermitage is approached via a stone pillared entrance and there is an extensive parking area. A superb Coach House has been converted to provide garaging and excellent ancillary accommodation over two floors. The gardens are stunning and arranged as a series of terraces. Mainly laid to lawn with an extensive and varied planting which provides an abundance of colour.
There are a series of stone retaining walls at different levels accessed by paths, each level containing a variety of attractive shrubs and flowers. From most parts of the garden, stunning views can be enjoyed to the south and east.

The southerly and easterly views from The Hermitage are truly beautiful. The property's location just over half a mile from the railway station makes access to Bath extremely convenient.Luke Brady
