Occupying an elevated position, with attractive views across Larkhall village towards Solsbury Hill, the property is one of only five houses at the top of Tyning Terrace. The house is approached via two short flights of stone steps, and presents a handsome exterior, built with bath stone and featuring a traditional bay window.
Internally, there are two spacious reception rooms, both with hard-wood flooring, high ceilings, and feature fireplaces. The current lounge/diner also provides an under-stairs cupboard. A good-sized kitchen/breakfast room is located at the rear of the ground floor, with access out into the tiered back garden, which has been primarily laid to lawn.
The first-floor of the property consists of two double bedrooms – both with feature fireplaces – and a single bedroom with a fitted cupboard. There is also a bathroom with shower-over-bath, basin and WC. There is a further flight of stairs up into the attic-conversion, which has been transformed into a master bedroom with en-suite shower-room. The first and second floors of the property have been laid with uniform, wood-effect laminate throughout, and have been kept purposefully neutral in their decoration.
Ideally situated on the edge of Fairfield Park, the house is a short walk from the local amenities on Camden Road. These include a pharmacy, doctor’s surgery, public house, and several bus stops – which provide a frequent service into Bath City Centre. St. Saviour’s primary school is only ten minutes down the road by foot, and St. Marks secondary is even closer. Going slightly further afield, the village of Larkhall provides a wide array of conveniences – including a co-operative, butchers, delicatessen, garage, several further public houses, and more. There are two full-sized supermarkets – Morrisons and Waitrose – within one mile of the property, and the latter also provides parking for city centre shopping.
Bath itself is a World Heritage Site, and offers a wonderful array of chain and independent shopping, a fine selection of restaurants, cafes and wine bars, and a myriad of other cultural activities. World class sporting facilities are available at the nearby Bath Rugby and Cricket clubs, and at Bath University. For commuters, Fairfield Park provides easy access to London Road, which in turn is a thirty-minute drive from Junction 6 of the M4. Bath Spa train station is two-miles from the property, and is serviced by mainline trains connecting the South to London (90 minutes to Paddington).
