Wake Lodge is a detached stone built period home converted generations ago from an Ostler’s cottage and its adjacent barn. Nestled on the edge of Dunkerton, it was then remodelled and extended in the 1950’s and again more recently to create a four/five bedroom family home. Arranged over three shallow split levels it provides versatile accommodation. The ground floor entrance is flanked by a dining room, with doors leading out to the front terrace and the sitting room which benefits from an open fire. The modern kitchen has sleek white units, integrated appliances including a Rayburn cooker, which also runs the hot water and heating. Self-contained on the ground floor and approached via the inner hall or a pretty Italianate courtyard, is a single storey annexe or party room. It provides a super entertaining space with double doors opening out onto the terrace. Back into the central hall, a few steps lead up to two bedrooms and a cloakroom. A further rise leads to the three further bedrooms and the family bathroom. With attractive countryside views and a large garden this is a super family home.

Outside
The grounds of Wake Lodge are of note, exceeding 0.83 of an acre. Gates open onto a driveway providing parking as well as leading round to the back of the house to a double garage. Adjacent to this is a stone built workshop and a charming courtyard that leads into the main house as well as the party room. To the front of the house is a dining terrace and the garden which wraps around the side and back up to the main gates. It is enclosed by mature hedging and has an abundance of trees and herbaceous borders. To the rear the garden is less formal with fruit trees, shrubs and a lawn rising up the slope, currently providing a wonderful display of spring flowers covering the grass.

Situation
A pretty village located to the south of Bath and just 4.7 miles from Bath Spa Railway Station. Standing in in attractive rural surroundings within a cluster of other period homes. Other villages nearby include Wellow, 2.4 mile drive with its popular primary school, village pub and community shop. The highly regarded Wheatsheaf country pub and restaurant is a 1.5 mile walk. Dunkerton is particularly well placed for south side schools, including King Edwards, Prior Park, Ralph Allen, St Gregory’s and Beechen Cliff. Bath provides excellent cultural and leisure amenities and has good communications and is well positioned for the M4, A303, Bristol Airport, Bath Spa Railway Station with mainline links to London Paddington (approx. 90 minutes).
