If you are looking for a grand countryside mansion offering tranquility and privacy in the South West of England and have a budget of around £4 Million, then look no further.

This one is for you!

Fieldgrove House is an exceptional Grade II listed family house in a stunning lakeside setting. The peaceful and secluded location is a haven for wildlife, with a balance of landscaped gardens, paddocks and pasture.

Fieldgrove House is a classical unspoiled gem, nestled in a secluded part of South Gloucestershire, between Bath and Bristol. The house is constructed of coursed tenant stone rubble under a hipped modern tile roof with stone coping, quoins and freestone dressings. The magnificent façade was added in the eighteenth century creating a Georgian appearance with a symmetrical three storey front complimented by a central portico with four Tuscan columns.

Fieldgrove House is situated in a very private and peaceful setting at the end of a quiet country lane on the edge of the village of Bitton.

The house has a fascinating provenance and is believed to have been a hunting lodge in Saxon times before undergoing a number of additions and extensions over the intervening period. In the 16th century Sir John Harrington, a godson of Queen Elizabeth I, is recorded to have lived at Fieldgrove House where he entertained the monarch. He and his brother Francis, of Kelston Towers, were the original inventors of the flushing toilet which they designed in the cellars beneath the house. Fieldgrove was also occupied by the Fry family who built their chocolate factory beside the nearby River Avon. 

The extensive lake, home to swans and a variety of other waterfowl, features bathing jetties, a sandy beach, boat dock and two islands, one with a large BBQ house and decorative lighting.

To the east of the lake is the stream with extensive wetland area, a small paddock and a larger field, extending to about 9.5 acres, which is currently let out on a grazing licence. 2 large stone barns provide plenty of stores and additional garaging to support the running and maintenance of the house.

The property is extremely well located for an extensive range of professional and recreational facilities in both Bristol and Bath.

The City of Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is only 7 miles away providing first class shopping, educational and cultural attractions including the Roman Baths, Holburne Museum, The Royal Crescent, Prior Park Gardens and the Theatre Royal. 

The area is renowned for the quality of its private and public schooling for boys and girls of all ages. Prior Park, Stonar, Monkton Combe, King Edwards, the Royal High School for Girls and Kingswood are all within easy reach and further afield are Badminton, Downside, Cheltenham, Marlborough, Millfield and St Mary’s Calne.
