A Village Ideal

Unlisted 18th century Georgian residence near Badminton for sale; ideal for those looking to quit the rat race

 

City dwellers and commuters regularly dream of quitting the rat race for a life in the country and when they watch programmes like Escape to the Country and Downton Abbey, they see an idealised vision of rural life. Such people could do worse than take a look at Dauncey House at Tormarton, near Badminton in South Gloucestershire, a property that is currently for sale through Hamptons International.

 

Reduced in price from £1.3 million ($1.6 million, €1.5 million or درهم5.8 million) to £1.2 million ($1.5 million, €1.4 million or درهم5.4 million), this attractive Cotswold stone village house was also marketed for £1.3 million in 2009 according to Country Life magazine. It is situated within a village where you’ll count the ‘King of Hoovers’ Sir James Dyson and the Duke of Beaufort as neighbours and it is believed that “humans have been active in the area for more than 6,000 years”.

 

Surprisingly unlisted and providing 3,368 square foot of accommodation, Dauncey House includes 3 reception rooms, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It stands in 2.5 acres of gardens and orchards and though perhaps a little blandly decorated currently, provides what the selling agents call “flexibility for the growing family”.

 

Situated just 10 miles north of Bath and 1 mile north-east of Junction 18 of the M4 motorway, this handsome 18th century Georgian residence would make an ideal home for a commuter. Chippenham, just 12 miles away, provides a direct service to London Paddington.

  1. UGLY!!!!!!! KNOCK IT DOWN!!!!!!!! SEND IN THE WRECKING BALL!!!!!!!!! OVERPRICED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOKS LIKE A PAEDO PALACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I defer to Roddikins’s knowledge of paedo palaces. Silly Billy Margaret was thinking it looked rather comfortable, fine and old-fashioned, and would suit me very well.

    The RE agent thinks 10 miles north of Bath is commutable to London? Wowsa.

    • People commute from Yorkshire daily to London now, Margaret. That’s what our crazy property prices have done to us.
