Harbridge Court is located in a country setting and was originally a model farm designed by 18th Century architect Samuel Wyatt as part of the Somerley Estate. The farm was redeveloped in the 1990's to provide nine properties in all. This Georgian Grade II Listed home exudes elegance and a peaceful ambience throughout. The stylish accommodation, typical of its period is well-proportioned with high ceilings and sash windows, and retains many original features including fireplaces throughout.

The entrance hall has a Bath stone flagstone floor with underfloor heating, and leads to all ground floor principle accommodation. The delightful drawing room has an impressive fireplace with a stone surround and benefits from lovely views over the formal sunken gardens, as does the dining room which has French doors opening onto the elevated terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of bespoke units with integrated appliances and a separate utility area.

A staircase leads from the hall to a part galleried landing. The impressive master bedroom is of particular note having a superb vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers and an en-suite shower room. Two further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.

From the ground floor, stairs lead down to one of the most intriguing aspects of this lovely home, namely an extensive cellar room at lower ground level with a barrel vaulted ceiling and under floor heating. This area offers great scope for use as additional living space or entertaining area, a gym or home office. There is an additional storage room on this level, ideal for storing wines.
