To me, this place look much older than the date given by the agent. But regardless of that, Fayard House in Monkton Combe near Bath, Somerset is a wonderful project for someone.
So designed and built in the 1930s and with so many period features still remaining intact judging by the photos. This is your very own mini stately home in waiting.
Not that ‘mini’ either, with around 3,918 sq. ft. of living space to play with either as a ‘straight’ renovation or to update into something a little more contemporary.
We would always lean towards the former, but if you want to do something more radical, there is full planning permission on place to do that, plus some drawings / renders on the agent’s site explaining just what has been given the nod.
But for now, let’s just take in the the rather grand house, the large windows and the great views beyond them. Half an acre of land around the house will be yours too if you invest in this place.
As for the internal space, a large reception hall leads to the drawing room with three full height sash windows overlooking the garden and the valley to Monkton Combe. Also on this floor is the dining room, with five tall windows overlooking the garden and the kitchen. A proposed extension offers the option to create a ‘modern and contemporary kitchen and a further family room below’ if that’s what you want or need.
The first floor currently houses five bedrooms, a small study and family bathroom. Again. there are plans to change this, adding in a further floor and bedrooms. with drawings on the listing.
It all comes down to what you want. But before you do anything at all, you will need to find around £900,000 to secure it.
