    About this property

    • A charming Grade II listed farmhouse, with a beautiful range of traditional agricultural buildings, in an idyllic situation approximately 6 miles north of Bath and east of Bristol, with land extending to about 23.47 acres. For sale as a whole or in four lots.

      LOT 1
      Bury Hill Farm is a charming detached farmhouse with walled garden and neighbouring paddock, in all about 4.7 acres (Lot 1). This handsome period farmhouse is constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof. Accommodation is arranged over three floors and is presented in excellent decorative order. The property has been the subject of a significant programme of refurbishment with all improvements having been implemented with considerable style and attention to detail. The house has considerable charm and character. Many architectural features typical of the period sit well alongside modern fixtures and furnishings.

      There are three reception rooms on the ground floor, a kitchen/breakfast room, reception hall and cloakroom. On the first floor are four generous bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor is bedroom 5 with dressing area and en suite bathroom. A sixth bedroom completes the accommodation.

      The property has a beautiful walled garden to the front and further extended areas of garden to the rear, which lead to the lovely ancient wooded slope of the River Boyd valley. There is an attractive stone garage for two cars and attached to this is a spacious workshop that would make a convenient large office (subject to the necessary consents). Adjacent to the back of the house is a utility room with planning (P19/15233/F) to be enlarged and connected to the house. There is also a lovely small stone barn used as a studio and two convenient WCs. Furthermore, there is a large timber framed workshop leased for £300 a month under a short term tenancy.

      In addition there is a traditional stone built stable block, with ten large stables and a tack room on the ground floor and a very large open planned area above, currently used as a games room. Until recently the stables were run as a livery business, generating an attractive income. Alternatively, they could be converted to residential use (subject to the necessary permissions). There is planning consent (PK18/1239/F) for a single storey residence within Lot 1, situated close to the studio.

      The property has further land available currently described in lots.

      Lot 2 - (about 8.33 acres) provides paddocks running down to a pretty stream and some mature woodland.

      Lot 3 - is an area with a paddock and woodland within the nature reserve, about 6.26 acres.

      Lot 4 - Attractive range of traditional stone built agricultural buildings, with stunning views over the Golden Valley Nature Reserve. The beautiful large stone barn has the benefit of planning (P19/0742/F) to create a spacious 4 bedroom home over two floors. The single-storey stone barn has planning (P19/0742/F) to create a two-bedroom home. Both barns have planning to convert adjacent smaller barns into garages. The single-storey barn is currently let commercially, generating a monthly income of £615. This lot includes paddocks with far-reaching views, and extends to about 4.15 acres.
