A wonderful detached period house recently extended and refurbished to a very high standard, cleverly creating a contemporary modern home but with the character and charm of an old cottage. With a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor (complete with a separate entrance door), the property offers well balanced and ‘flexible’ accommodation and would also suit those wishing to work from home, house a dependent relative or, perhaps, try Airbnb.

bespoke double glazed windows

The house stands in an attractive plot of about ? acre, with delightful gardens to front side and rear, mostly enclosed with hedging and stone walls. There is a level lawn, a large stone flagged sun terrace, mature bushes, trees, borders, wild flower, vegetable and fruit gardens, with further seating areas to follow the sun or shade as required. There is a stone built store (11’2 x 7’4) together with a useful timber outbuilding (18’10 x 9’9) and extensive gated driveway parking. There is a gate giving access onto the little footpath (and in turn to Monkton Farleigh or directly into woodland), an outside water tap and lighting.
Dry Arch Cottage occupies a convenient position, set well back from the road and on the edge of both open countryside and the historic woodland at Brown’s Folly. It is close to Monkton Farleigh and the village of Bathford (with their excellent Primary Schools, community shop/café, and pubs), wonderful walks are available in the immediate vicinity, the centre of Bath is only 5 or so miles away whilst the various shops and amenities in the pretty town of Bradford-on-Avon are also nearby.
Leave the centre of Bath heading East on the A4. At the roundabout at the end of the bypass, turn right, signposted Bradford on Avon. Continue for about a mile and a half and Dry Arch Corttage will be found on your left hand side, behind grey painted gates. If you reach the turning to Monkton Farleigh, turn around and the house will be the first one on your right!
