About the property:

Positioned on the edge of the desirable village of Carlingcott, just six miles south from the Georgian city of Bath, Applepress Cottage enjoys stunning views over open countryside. The current owners restored and converted the original apple press into a unique circular sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, complementing the cosy interior of two further reception rooms, and three double bedrooms. An expansive lawned garden has been landscaped with beautiful herbaceous borders and seating areas to take in the views, and a secluded courtyard between the kitchen and the original outhouse provides an ideal spot for al fresco dining. The property benefits from a gravelled driveway providing parking for several vehicles, and a double garage.

About the inside:

The enclosed entrance porch to the side of the property invites you into a large hall with a storage cupboard to one side. The cosy central family room has polished floorboards, fireplace and exposed beams and opens into the dual aspect dining room with views across the valley. On the other side is the fully fitted kitchen with a large electric range cooker and windows overlooking the side courtyard and a glazed door to the rear. Steps lead down from the family room into the impressive circular sitting room with a vaulted, beamed ceiling. Oak floors are warmed by underfloor heating, and a large stone fireplace with exposed bresummer beam houses a woodburning stove, creating a focal point for cosy evenings. Two sets of French doors open out onto the raised gravel terrace. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor three generous double bedrooms all benefit from stunning views across the valley and character features including exposed stone walls and fireplaces. The spacious modern family bathroom incorporates a bath and separate shower offset by polished floorboards, a feature throughout the whole house. The principal bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room.

About the outside:

A gravelled driveway sweeps down the side of the cottage and opens into a wide parking area with access to the double garage. A raised terrace wraps around the circular sitting room with steps up to a further landscaped terrace linking the main garden to the secluded courtyard. An expansive lawn stretches out towards the valley, with stunning views over farmland. Attractive herbaceous borders provide plenty of colour, and two sheltered seating areas have been positioned to admire the sunsets. A further paved patio offers a private dining area alongside the greenhouse.

Between the kitchen and the original brick outhouse is a secluded courtyard paved with flagstones and with colourful roses tumbling over the walls, perfect for al fresco entertaining. A raised fish pond filled with lilies and irises enhances the relaxing ambience.
