Summary

The Old House in Freshford is a substantial Grade II listed detached Georgian house which was originally built in the mid-18th century. The house is divided into six flats and Number 2 comprises the ground floor of the stable block.
The delightful four-bedroom, two-bathroom garden flat has recently been renovated to completely restore its original features: stunning herringbone wooden floors, lead-lined mullion windows, window seats and a private courtyard as well as partially walled gardens to the front of the property including mature fig and apple trees.
The property is accessed via private gardens and the entrance hall leads to a long L-shaped corridor, part of which has been converted into a gallery-library. Off the gallery there is a large private courtyard large enough for entertaining with the potential to enclose and create another interior space. Along the right side of main corridor are three bedrooms - one of which is en-suite - and a large family bathroom with a large roll-top bath.
To the left is the kitchen with garden views. The quarry tile floor was revealed under layers of concrete and there is a newly created pantry to accommodate the unusual shape of the room, likely the result of an extensive fireplace when the property was actively shoeing horses. The owners have left the kitchen as a handmade show kitchen with all the relevant plumbing.
Off the kitchen is the bright and open sitting room with a restored fireplace with original Georgian mantle, window seats and lovely views into the garden. Off this is the hidden fourth (master) bedroom which can also be accessed via a small vestibule at the very end of the gallery.
There is a garage, parking, and storage shed. One section of the garden known as "the new territories" has remained untouched. It runs along the side of the main house and would be the ideal place for a hidden home office. It also conveniently opens onto The Hill leading down in less than a one minute walk to the Inn at Freshford and the River Frome.

Location

Idyllic Freshford (population 551) lies within the Avon Valley within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has a train station a few hundred yards from the front door and trains regularly run the 6 miles into Bath - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - and from there on to London. Bradford-on-Avon is a few miles away and there is great walking, cycling, fishing and other outdoor pursuits as well as lovely villages and delightful pubs in the surrounding countryside. The village itself has a fantastic shop and café.
The tenure of the Leasehold is the residue of 999 years from 01/01/2006 and the Freehold is in the process of being transferred to the six individual flats in the early months of 2022. Number 2 has a 15% share of the management costs of the property (£1850 contribution to the kitty in 2021 mostly unspent), £50 Ground Rent and is in Council Tax Band C.

To get to the property, head along Station Road and take the last right before the station, marked Beech Cottage, follow the sweeping driveway all the way to the very end and the parking for number two is beneath the original chapel arches by the garages.
