The Clock House is located in the sought-after and picturesque village of Bathford, which offers a variety of amenities including a local shop, pub and church. Bathford lies approximately 3 miles to the east of Bath and 10 miles south-west of Chippenham. Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture and offers a wide variety of cultural, leisure, sports and shopping facilities along with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approx. 90 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 mins). There are highly regarded schools in both the public and private sectors along with 2 universities. Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 10 miles north.
The Clock House is a stunning property formerly known as The Coach House and The Garden Cottage, part of Titan Barrow, an estate originally built by John Wood the Elder, the renowned designer of much of Georgian Bath. This Grade II listed property was constructed in the early to mid-19th Century from Bath stone with a hipped slate roof behind a parapet with three pineapple finials. The modern working clock replaced a previous window that had housed the clock from St Swithun’s Church that was moved there when the church tower was enlarged. There are 1930s additions and the property was fully restored with great attention to detail in 2010 by the current owners. Presented in excellent decorative condition throughout, The Clock House provides elegant accommodation along with landscaped gardens approaching half an acre and wonderful countryside views.
Upon entering The Clock House there is a fine hallway that leads to a sitting room with feature fireplace, a study and the downstairs cloakroom. There is a formal dining room with attractive recessed alcoves and fireplace and double doors that open out to the front of the property.
There is a spacious bespoke hand-built fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, off which there is an extensive utility room leading to the boiler room. The breakfast room has French doors that frame a wonderful vista onto the terrace with abundant flower borders, creating a perfect area for summer dining and entertaining.
Upstairs there is an impressive master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and two large walk-in dressing rooms, along with two further en suite bedrooms, all of which are beautifully presented and provide wonderful views of the gardens and grounds beyond.
Opposite The Clock House is a detached cottage providing additional accommodation for guests or family use, or could be used as an office. This property has been finished to the same high standard as the main house and comprises a large living area, bedroom, kitchen area and shower room along with a double garage.
The Clock House is approached off the village lane via impressive formal wrought iron electric gates. There is a shared gravel driveway that leads to the house, where there is a carport and ample forecourt parking to the front of the property.
Attached to the house is a former stable that is currently used as a garden store, but could revert to its former role.
The gardens are to the rear of the house with landscaped extensive lawns, terraces for entertaining and from which to enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside.
Mains services connected.
