Description


Knowle House is an outstanding, recently built property built by Bloor Homes. The property has handsome and imposing Georgian style elevation to the front, a traditional stone tile roof and is arranged over four floors, the lower ground floor
meeting the patio and garden to the rear. A triple garage sits behind electric gates to the side and is preceded by driveway parking for several cars.

The property has a range of reception rooms to the ground and lower ground floor which all span off the spacious central entrance hall. The entirety of the ground and lower ground floor are underfloor heated with radiators serving the upstairs accommodation. The bathrooms are all fitted to an exacting standard throughout and are also all underfloor heated. The kitchen is built to a high specification and incorporates a Mercury range cooker and American style fridge freezer. Also to the ground floor is a generous sized sitting room with wood burning stove and a formal dining room. Both the kitchen and the sitting room step out onto the south facing balcony which
spans the whole width of the house, with plenty of room for seating and wonderful views across the countryside to the rear.

The lower ground floor gives a family all the extra space they need. There is a fantastic cinema room. A utility room with shower room, as well as a second sitting/family room and a large study/playroom. French doors from both the family and study open out onto the south-west facing rear patio.

To the first floor is the master bedroom suite and two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master suite has outstanding far reaching views and has its own walk in wardrobe/dressing room as well as an en suite wet room with a copper roll top freestanding bath. The landing surrounding the
wood frame staircase wraps around giving you a unique space to sit and enjoy the views to the rear. To the second floor there are two double bedrooms with a central bathroom.

The gardens to the rear are laid mainly to lawn and look out over beautiful landscaped public gardens. The master bedroom, patio terrace and balcony all face south-west and are treated to spectacular sunsets. The triple garage has side
door access, three up and over doors, one of which open from a remote fob and there is potential for further accommodation
above in the garage loft space, which is currently boarded.


Situation


The medieval village of Norton St. Philip is located
approximately 7 miles south of the City of Bath, with the villages of Freshford, Wellow and Hinton Charterhouse not far away. Set in scenery of rolling green Somerset hills with three Churches, a village Green, a preschool and pre-prep, village
hall, and two excellent pubs (‘The George Inn’ and ‘The Fleur de Lys’). The George in particular has a deep history dating back to the 14th Century. For explorers the National Trust Village of Lacock and the historic town of Bradford-on-Avon are a short
drive away and a visit to the nearby Longleat House, one of the most magnificent stately homes and gardens in Britain together with its safari park, is not to be missed. Babington House is also only a 15 minute drive away. The local country side is intersected by footpaths and bridleways which are great for walks and discovering local wildlife.

The local community organises Yoga and Pilates sessions, Ballroom and Latin dance classes as well as a Village cinema and regular shows at the Village Hall.()
