Nunney Court once belonged to the Formula One team owner Rob Walker and is the original home of British racing.
The Walkers moved to Nunney Court in 1949, modernising the house at the time – it had been empty during the Second World War. But then they left it untouched for 60 years.
It is now a characterful warren of over 7,500 square feet, with six bedrooms over four floors, a separate cottage and coach house and 27 acres of grounds including garages, an orchard and riverfront area.
Nunney Court is on the market through estate agents Savills, whose description of the property reads:
Listed Grade II, Nunney Court is a delightful Georgian Manor in a hidden location. It has ashlar elevations with a central porticoed porch supported on Doric columns and approached by a graceful run of stone steps. Large sash windows provide ample light. The architectural details are both elegant and particularly fine.
The elegant proportions and excellent room arrangement are immediately apparent. The hall, drawing room, dining room, morning room, study and first floor bedrooms all enjoy fabulous south westerly views across the gardens and grounds to Nunney Castle and the countryside beyond. The reception hall, library and domestic offices are all at the rear of the house.
Nunney Court is under offer, having been marketed with a guide price of £1,995,000. For full details, contact Savills in Bath, telephone 01225 978 053.
