About this property

  • Charlcombe Manor is a historic Grade II Listed house, originally dating from the late 17th Century, with some of the finest views in the area. It has been meticulously restored by the current owners and is situated in a wonderful valley, just moments from Bath.

    Guests are welcomed by a spacious entrance hall with an elaborate ceiling. To the right, a grand dining room features Jacobean-style cornicing, stone mullioned windows, and an ashlar stone fireplace. To the left of the hall, is another reception room with similar proportions and features, which is currently utilised as a gym but could be another sitting room or office. Further along the hall is the elegant drawing room, boasting a bay window with a central French door offering magnificent views of the grounds and countryside. To the rear of the hall, a beautiful stone staircase leads to the upper floors. To the left is the kitchen with bespoke units, granite countertops, and integrated appliances including double fridge freezer, Miele oven and microwave, Falcon range cooker, and an integrated dishwasher. The rear lobby leads from the kitchen, providing access to the side garden, boiler room and downstairs WC. There is also a useful store room for recycling and additional storage, as well as a large utility room.

    The staircase leads to the first-floor accommodation, where there is wonderful reception room that could serve as an additional bedroom if needed. This room offers spectacular valley views and features a stone fireplace, beautiful cornicing, and a Juliet balcony. The luxurious principal bedroom is next door with an en suite bathroom featuring a large corner bath, a separate shower cubicle, bespoke sanitaryware. The family bathroom with a contemporary suite is also on this floor, with a doorway providing external access to Charlcombe Lane. The top floor comprises three lovely bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom. Bedroom four has access to a spacious attic, which provides excellent storage, and has potential for conversion subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

    Garden & Grounds

    The house is set in a wonderfully peaceful and secluded location, accessed from Charlcombe Lane via stone-pillared gates and a long drive, leading to a large gravelled area on the western side of the house. The elevated position of the house offers breath-taking views of Charlcombe village and the valley beyond. The driveway continues around the front of the house to a double garage on the east of the house. The upper terrace of the garden, accessed straight from the house is perfect for summer dining and enjoying the views of the valley. A charming summer house is also located here. Steps down from here lead to the garden, which features a large lawned area on one side, surrounded by mature trees which provide cover and privacy, and a stunning Japanese garden to the east with a beautiful pond. The pond, currently heated for koi carp, has potential (STPP) to be converted into a swimming pool, enjoying the wonderful views.
