Lovely terraces and private grounds. 15 minutes to Bath by car. Fortnight Farm Manor Built in 1742, this handsome Georgian house of honey-coloured stone has evolved over the centuries from simple farmhouse to a large, sophisticated and contemporary family home where you can bond together as a group or indulge in some private pamper time. Re-imagined in a Mediterranean style, this accommodating house encompasses a central sun terrace with outdoor table and chairs for 14 and a BBQ, which makes the most of the lovely rural setting and is a natural magnet for the whole group in fine weather. This sunny, south-west facing outdoor space makes a relaxing place for a morning coffee and papers, a natural re-charging hub for roaming kids grabbing a snack, an ideal hot spot for a catch-up over tea and cake, and a romantic rendezvous when raising your glass in a toast over dinner. Finally, at the end of the day, it's just heavenly for star gazing with your favourite tipple. The main house has a large lobby, several welcoming lounges, and a cloakroom on the ground floor, with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms above, whilst the renovated west wing with French doors onto the terrace, has a fine contemporary kitchen and breakfast room, with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom above. Opposite the kitchen, and off the main lobby, is a bright and airy south-east facing orangery, providing an elegant dining area, with an entrance into the walled garden to one side. Garden paths lead around the house to a large north-east facing terrace with outdoor loungers and stone seating. A gravelled path takes you farther up into the grounds where a large field is good for playing sports or for a marquee for any special events. Inside the house, the ground floor spaces have been re-arranged to comfortably accommodate 21st century life. A new entrance at the centre of the house opens into a large lobby from where you can access the chic contemporty kitchen, a lavish TV room, a bar, drawing room and a cloakroom. Old and new come together seamlessly with smooth travertine stone floors, limed oak furniture and luxurious natural fabrics throughout. There are fine linen and velvet drapes alongside modernist artworks, little stone mullioned windows in decadent bathrooms and winding staircases up to designer bedrooms in jewel rich colours. Every room glows with colour and detail, inspiring room names in the precious stones which they most resemble. The Kitchen The former stable has been transformed into a contemporary linear kitchen and breakfast room in classic grey-green with travertine stone tile flooring. Pale oak wall units have been paired with grey stone tops and smooth drawers for a polished and seamless look. There are two pairs of French doors opening onto the terrace, making it easy to serve spontaneous outdoor meals. A smart central island has a large 4 ring induction hob and combines a preparation area and breakfast bar with 4 oak stools, whilst a modern green velvet winged chair is a snug spot for your favourite brew. The wall units have 2 programmable electric ovens, one of which can be a used as a microwave, also a large fridge, a separate freezer and a dishwasher. On the countertop is a Nespresso coffee machine with some coffee pods provided. The soft close cupboards contain a generous stack of crockery, glassware and cooking equipment. The Breakfast Room The breakfast area has a long limed oak table to seat 14 in total, with a rustic oak chair at both ends and long padded benches to seat 12 on either side. There is a pretty dresser with a small TV and sonos sound bar above it that has integrated Alexa voice-controlled music. A large under-stairs storage cupboard has utility items and also a separate pantry cupboard. An open staircase leads up to the former hayloft with 2 lovely bedrooms and a shower room. The Utility A large separate utility and boot room has smart fitted units similar to the kitchen area. There is another large fridge and separate freezer, a sink, a washing machine and separate dryer, along with a couple of laundry baskets and plenty of storage. Welly boot stands and outdoor cushions are situated beside the back door. Main Entrance/ground floor area A simple and striking entrance has a large black and white photo, a cow-hide bench and an easy chair with a sheepskin rug. A vestibule with a long console, decorative lamps and gothic mirror has doors to the living rooms, a boiler room, and an outer door to the north-east woodland and gardens. There is a large alcove with multiple coat hooks and a smart cloak room with a smaMore
