Large SW Facing Garden | Suntrap Terraces | Off-Street Parking | Garage
Set in a superb plot with a wonderful large leafy South West facing garden, hard to appreciate from the (early evening) Photos! Lawn gently slopes down past suntrap paved areas to a stream flowing under a lovely mature blossom tree, on the other-side of which a giant trampoline currently nestles discreetly in a corner. Huge garden. Huge potential. Rare opportunity.
Unassuming from the front, this house unfolds into an extensive and versatile family home filled with natural light. Built as a detached house in 1935, extended sideways in the 70s (now touching next-door) and further extended at garden level more recently, the property is more substantial than the front aspect suggests. Spread over three floors are; 5/6 bedrooms, 2/3 receptions, 3 study/hobby areas, 2 kitchens, utility, bathroom, shower room, and cloakroom. Plus a bright boarded attic, garage and off-road parking.
A small garden and drive fronts the House. A sitting room to the front with square bay windows flows into a kitchen-diner at the back, which has doors opening onto a roof terrace...with unexpected WOW factor views over the garden! Perfect for all sun-lovers, (neighbours have a very productive grapevine), glimpses of beautiful Bath peep through the trees and birdsong (prolific) is often the only sound in this peaceful spot. Cozy bright reception 3 (or bed 6) also opens onto this terrace, which has stairs down to the garden. Next to the kitchen is a study/hobby area through which both reception 3 (or bed 6) and the Garden Level stairs are accessed. An alternative glazed entrance door, hall cupboard, stairs to first floor and a cloakroom, complete the Ground floor.
An inner hall/study area leads to; a shower-room, utility/boiler-room, storage, bedroom 5, and last but not least the fabulous Family Room, a contemporary split-level space with oak flooring and under-floor heating. Ample glazing lets the light flood in and provides views out over the garden, doors lead onto a small suntrap raised terrace with steps down to the lawn. A discreet kitchen is tucked away not visible from the rest of the room. This versatile space could be the main family kitchen dining room if desired. Option to use the whole Garden Level as a one bedroom Annexe.
Four bedrooms and a bathroom surround a generous landing with space for desk and shelves. Though currently arranged as two doubles, one single and a dressing room, all the bedrooms have served as doubles, they all have leafy views. Hatch to attic with 3 roof-windows, currently a storage & Lego zone. View the 3D Virtual Tour
Come in and have a look round! Please note the fire in the Family Room has been removed, creating a more flexible space, perfect for a large corner sofa!
Generally well presented but scope for further improvement and adaptation. (Removing the kitchen/study area wall could transform the ground floor space. No planning required). Unlike most in the street, this house is NOT Listed, giving free-reign to adapt and style without restrictions.
