ACTRESS Jane Seymour is selling her beautiful 13th century home in the English countryside. The film star - best known in Hongkong for her role in the hit movie Somewhere in Time - is looking for GBP1.75 million (HK$19.6 million) for the historic property. Sprawling St Catherine's Court overlooks an outstanding valley by the same name in the scenic southwest. On offer to the potential buyer is the house and almost 5.7 hectares of grounds which include cottages, a Tythe barn and tennis court. The earliest known owners were the monks of Bath's Benedictine Monastery in 1310. But records in the nearby church show it was built sometime before 1258. The most famous owner - apart from Seymour of course - was possibly King Henry VIII. In 1546 he ''granted'' the property to his tailor John Malte . . . if he took the King's daughter Ethelreda into his care. Listed Grade 1, it is one of only a few houses retaining its church, Tythe barn and cottages. Ms Carol Howard, of agents La Rueda, said: ''It is a historic and fascinating country house. ''It is beautifully located in one of Bath's most outstanding valleys, and is an exquisite example of a late Tudor and early Jacobean Court.'' Driving up to the house is like a trip back in time. Fist you pass the medieval Tythe barn, and then the church which still holds regular services. The house itself is built of Cotswold stone and has leaded light windows. Inside there are a variety of historical and ancient delights. The Oak Hall sports a beamed ceiling, with panelled mouldings and ''romance'' heads as medallions. An entrance of two columns and three arches leads you into the magnificent drawing room, with its ornate carved and panelled ceiling with a central oval in a fruited design. There is also a superb dining room, library, cloakrooms and separate family and commercial kitchens. As well as the master bedroom, there are five secondary bedrooms, five principal dressing rooms, five bathrooms and a gymnasium. For further information phone Ms Howard on 812 9684. Fax: 812 0595.
