Shaw House

Posted on Sun, 27 Mar 2022 by KiM

Shaw House is a magnificent Grade II-listed manor built in the early 18th century and designed in the classical style. It is set within six acres of beautifully curated grounds just east of Bradford-on-Avon and the historic city of Bath. Accommodation exceeds 9,500 sq ft with nine bedrooms and a beautiful ground floor level that interacts wonderfully with the surrounding terraces and sections of private garden. The slightly raised ground level opens to a spectacular entrance hall with hardwood parquet flooring and a fireplace with a bolection moulded surround. Ahead lies a morning room that links the dual aspect dining room on one side and the kitchen on the other. This northern section of the plan also houses a boot room, pantry and cloakroom. Substantial cellars have been repurposed as a laundry room and offer versatile storage. Open fireplaces are present in all the principal rooms on this level. To the left of the central hall are stairs down to a drawing room, set within a 19th century, two-storey wing of the house. A wide, sweeping staircase ascends from the hall to the bedrooms, dressing rooms and five bathrooms that are distributed across the first and second floors and on intermediate levels at the northern and southern ends of the plan.

YES. This home is SPECTACULAR. I’d be tempted to ask the sellers to sell the furnishings with it. For sale via Inigo.

WOW. Utterly divine. Completely original the use of green is superb. The grounds are spectacular, along with the rest of the house. A 10 our of 10. Thank you for sharing. x

Needs more lamps 🙂
Actually, there is some interesting positioning of that lighting- I’d love to see this at night!

Just a quick thank you to you both Kim and Jo- I haven’t had nearly enough time this last month to contemplate and comment on so many fantastic posts, just quick viewing between projects. Will go back and wallow in the beauty shortly 🙂 Thanks for all you do!

I was thinking about what the lighting looks like at night as well! It’s a gorgeous dream of a home!
