Built in 1926, the property presents a handsome, bay-fronted exterior, which faces out across the open countryside of Bathampton Meadows. It is approached through a level front garden, which has been laid to lawn, and is bordered by manicured hedges. This in turn is reached via either a short flight of stone steps, or a private gate which leads onto a discreet pedestrian pathway – perfect for when pushing prams, or carrying the weekly shopping.
The house has been tastefully extended and renovated by its current owners, and now offers versatile family living, arranged over three floors. The spacious front room is centred around the wide bay-window, and makes the most of the attractive views. The open-plan kitchen/diner benefits from a high ceiling and thoughtfully placed skylights – making it a bright and welcoming room, which is sure to be the heart of the home.
There is the added bonus of an additional reception room, which is currently being used as a dog-grooming salon. This could be the ideal space for any home-run business, due to the room having separate rear access, meaning that clients wouldn’t have to walk through the main house. However, the room could also transition into an additional utility space, home office, or playroom.
On the first floor, the property offers two generously sized double bedrooms, a large family bathroom, and a recently updated en-suite. In the loft conversion, there is a further double bedroom, and a single bedroom/study. Both of these rooms have extensive storage spaces, built into the converted eaves of the property.
The back garden has been thoughtfully landscaped to make the most of the elevated position, and the accompanying views. Structured levels provide in turn patio areas, lawn, and soft bark mulch, and unobtrusive fences ensure that the space feels private. Attractive shrubs, flowers and hedges give the garden a sense of character, and there is plenty of room for playhouses and/or garden sheds.
Parking is permit-free on street. The current owners of the property did previously obtain pre-planning for a single garage. This has since lapsed, but may be re-obtainable.
The property is located on London Road East, within the residential village of Batheaston, located on the north-eastern outskirts of Bath City. Batheaston village has a thriving community, which offers plenty of local amenities, including a convenience store, post office, several pubs, a doctors’ surgery, dentist surgery, pharmacy and Fish & Chip takeaway. There are frequent bus services into Bath city centre, and out into the surrounding villages and towns. For commuters, there is easy access to the M4 (J18 - 10 miles), and there are high speed rail links available from both Bath Spa (3 miles) and Chippenham (10 miles) stations.
The property is based within the catchment area of well-regarded Batheaston and Bathford pre and primary schools, and there is a further selection of excellent schools in Bath and the surrounding areas.
