Great Pulteney Street, Bath, BA2
A modern country house set in 5 acres with separate cottage, swimming pool and stables. A true blend of town and country with Bath city centre less than 2 miles away
The Ranch House is a mostly single storey detached house set in around 5 acres of grounds with a separate self-contained cottage. The property wraps around its south facing swimming pool in an elevated position with views over its own land and beyond. It is a true blend of town and country with the city centre less than 2 miles away.
The property is accessed via electric gates onto a short section of shared driveway (which serves three other properties) and, after taking the right fork, a long private driveway leads up to the main house with a large double garage/stable block and driveway parking for several vehicles.
The house is entered at the front into a spacious entrance hall which leads to the rest of the accommodation which comprises a sitting room with a bay window and double aspect allowing views to the front over the swimming pool and over the fields to the side and down towards the Lam Brook at the boundary of the land. There is a spacious kitchen/dining room with stairs down to a bedroom with en suite shower room. A large conservatory leads off the kitchen and provides a delightful seating area overlooking the pool terrace. There is a cloakroom off the entrance hall, a utility room and a large bedroom (or second reception room) which leads through to a study and back door area opening to the rear courtyard and garden. The west wing of the house has the principal bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
A large double garage/stable block is situated to the side of the house. Around 5 acres of beautiful grounds and paddocks lead from the house down to skirt along the babbling Lam Brook, which runs the full length of the eastern boundary and is a haven for wildlife. At the front there is a large lawned area and a play area ideal for growing children.
To the rear of the property stands a separate one/two bedroom detached cottage, with stunning views over the land and up towards Little Solsbury Hill. The cottage has planning permission in place for use as an annexe, unrestricted holiday let or Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST). The accommodation comprises a utility room, boot room, sitting room, kitchen, cloakroom, dining room/bedroom 2 and a principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and separate w.c. There is a small private garden to the side.
The properties are separately rated and have all mains services.
The property is situated in an AONB at the base of the Charlcombe Valley, with the Lam Brook running the full length of its eastern boundary. There are local shops (including an award winning butcher and deli) about a 10 minute walk away in popular Larkhall and its a level 30 minute walk into Bath. Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site bursting with magnificent architecture, entertainment, fine dining and of course the Rec, home to Bath Rugby.
