A beautifully appointed Grade II listed country house with panoramic rural views across the Bybrook Valley.
Shockerwick Cottage is a fine example of a 17th century Grade II listed detached period home situated in a quiet rural hamlet, benefitting from breath-taking country views.
The house is built in attractive honey colour rubble stone, dressed with ashlar stone quoins and stone mullion windows, all beneath a stone tiled roof. The property offers 2,676 sq ft of beautifully-appointed accommodation arranged over three floors. The welcoming entrance hall with vaulted ceiling leads to a spacious sitting room, complete with open fireplace with inset wood burner and exposed beams. This in turn opens into the dining/garden room with French doors out to the terrace. The contemporary style kitchen features a central breakfast bar and some integrated appliances.
Additionally there is a family room, which offers a quiet space to relax, as well as a study, lobby, downstairs shower room and access to the games room/workshop and the utility room.
To the first floor are the bedrooms and a family shower room. To the second floor is an en suite bedroom complete with dressing room area and shower room.
The property benefits from a number of period features, attractive wooden latch doors, and superb lantern sky lights adding brightness and views where needed. Most rooms enjoy a rural country outlook and the whole house is beautifully kept and stylishly appointed.
The gardens are arranged predominantly to the rear of the property, where there are the most breath-taking panoramic views across the Bybrook Valley.
To the side of the house is a gravel driveway, parking for two vehicles, electric car charging point and access to a large timber storage shed/workshop.
An ornate gateway leads into the garden, which is laid predominantly to lawn. There is a pennant stone paved terrace leading off the back of the house, which is ideal for al fresco dining or simply enjoying a drink and taking in the amazing view. There are well-stocked flower beds bursting with colour. There is an established hedge to one side, which offers a large degree of privacy further enhancing this very special location.
There is an outside tap and external lighting.

The views from this property really are spectacular - a real countryside location less than 5 miles from the heart of Georgian Bath.Matthew Pegler
