As is popular in many Scandi countries, the house has an inverted layout – bedrooms on the ground floor, and living areas above. Although a variation on the traditional, this allows the primary living spaces to make the most of the exceptional views across to Solsbury Hill and Swainswick, which are both local areas of outstanding natural beauty.
The upstairs also benefits from an open-plan layout, exposed wooden floorboards, and a simple, muted décor throughout. The dual aspect, high ceilings, and mixture of traditional and large Velux windows, all combine to create a bright and airy space, which is perfect for entertaining, or enjoying some hygge.
Downstairs, the property offers two good-sized bedrooms, a practical utility area, and a large bathroom with separate shower and tub. There is double glazing throughout, and a combi-boiler which has been regularly serviced. A backdoor provides access to the rear patio and garden, which are ideal for enjoying al fresco meals on summer evenings.
Hampton View itself is a friendly residential cul-de-sac, which has a warm and welcoming community feel. And whilst Fairfield Park has its own amenities, it is ideally situated within a short walking distance of the popular village of Larkhall. Therein is a delightful delicatessen, multiple cafes and public houses, a newsagents and supermarket, some boutique shops, and even a theatre. There is easy access to London Road, which in turn leads to the M4. Frequent bus links provide transport both into the city, and out to the nearby villages and towns.
