About this property

  • Maplecroft House is a beautifully presented and lovingly cared for Grade II Listed family home. This period gem has the most attractive 18th Century Ashlar façade enhanced with Victorian and later wings on either side with a balustraded formal terrace to the front.

    The property consists of six bedrooms and four impressive reception rooms mainly on two floors and all reached from the large, elegant reception hall. The current owners have been in residence for nearly 20 years with their three children going to school in Bath. They have, over time, undertaken a sympathetic and stylish refurbishment of this historic house, enhancing, and retaining many of its original features.

    A stone entrance porch leads into the large reception hall with polished wood floors, feature fireplace and French doors which lead out to the front terrace. To the left-hand side is a magnificent triple-aspect drawing room measuring 25ft x 18ft with a large glass lantern overhead and two sets of doors, leading to the gardens at the front and charming courtyard at the rear. Back across the hallway is a cosy snug, which leads through to a wonderful octagonal kitchen/breakfast room 22ft x 20ft, with central island, lantern overhead and four sets of French doors opening out to a sunny south facing breakfast patio and overlooking the garden. To the rear of the ground floor is a further family room and interlinking room currently utilised as a gym/games room. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a utility\boot room leading from the snug and a downstairs guest cloakroom.

    The generous bedroom accommodation is arranged over the first and second floors. The principal bedroom is positioned to the front of the house and overlooks the magnificent garden, with a large en suite bathroom and separate dressing room. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor. The floor above provides two more bedrooms, both en suite, and a separate study. Maplecroft House is a truly beautiful property, with generous proportions throughout and an abundance of original features still intact, creating a wonderful family home.

    Grounds

    Maplecroft House is approached by a long sweeping driveway from the Bath Road to a large hardstanding for several vehicles. The southwest facing gardens of Maplecroft House are wonderfully presented, with a magnificent array of mature trees planted around the boundaries, set in grounds of almost two acres. The property is link-detached at the rear and so the gardens and terraces are set around the front and sides of the house with a small courtyard at the rear. The former coach house located in the garden, has been converted into a separate one-bedroom annexe with adjoining garden store. Immediately surrounding the house is a wraparound terrace with stone balustrade wall, ornamental box hedging and mature planting, with a further paved terrace located on the east side outside the kitchen, perfect for al fresco dining. The large level lawn sweeps in front of the property bordered by a variety of mature specimen trees and leads to the hard-surface tennis court. From here you can meander to an enchanting tucked away copse which is specifically managed as a natural wildlife garden highlighted by a heart shaped pond, found and restored by the current owners, and is thought to have a romantic story that dates back to the origins of the house in the 18th century.
