Manor Orchard offers delightful living and entertaining space in an enviable location. The reception hall with wooden flooring throughout leads to the ground floor bedroom wing providing three bedrooms and a striking family bathroom. The sitting room on the other side of the hall is a spacious room with a unique wood burning stove and double doors opening out to decked raised terrace providing a super spot to sit out and enjoy the aspect. A major feature of this stylish village home is the superb ‘live-in’ kitchen. Bespoke hand painted units under a polished granite work surface have been well designed and stripped wooden flooring flows through to the dining area. Bi-fold doors open up onto the terrace leading up to the tiered garden. There is also an office and utility room off the kitchen. There is further space up in the attic conversion.
The idyllic Limpley Stoke valley is situated on the edge of Bath. Village amenities include a country hotel and local public house, The Hop Pole Inn and the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal. The adjacent village of Freshford also has a popular pub as well as a highly regarded primary school and community village shop/café. A further bonus for the area is the railway station in Freshford which has direct services to Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and the south coast. The immediate area is also well served by secondary schools including King Edward’s, Monkton Combe and in the state sector the popular St Laurence and Ralph Allen Schools.
Manor Orchard has the benefit of a stone single garage and steps adjacent to the lawn leading up to the front terrace. Rambling roses, lavender and box create an attractive entrance to the pretty front garden. A raised decked terrace provides a seating area and can be accessed from the double doors of the sitting room. To the rear of the house, steps lead up from a side terrace to the lawn. The garden affords stunning views of the Limpley Stoke valley. A path leads to the first terrace for sitting out and onward to a large second terrace, both with slate stone slabs enclosed by a curved dry stone wall; wonderfully sunny seating areas to enjoy the views. A further level reaches a second lawn, the vegetable patches and the fully insulated, double glazed timber framed summer house, complete with electrical supply. With a play room, home office and deck once again providing a vantage point for those fantastic 180 degree views.
