Sitting atop a landscaped front garden, the property has a semi-rural feel, with easy access to country walks. It is set back from a quiet no-through road, and is approached via a tiered stone path. Directly in front of the property is an attractive, easterly facing patio, which offers the ideal location in which to enjoy a morning tea or coffee.
A wide and welcoming entry-hall acts as an artery to the rest of the house. The living room has a working fireplace, and is light and bright - due to the high ceilings, neutral décor, and bay window. The latter offers panoramic views out across Larkhall and Swainswick, towards Solsbury Hill.
The kitchen/breakfast room has cream units, granite worktops, and wide windows. There is ample space for white goods, food preparation, and storage – including a deep pantry cupboard.
The separate dining room benefits from hard-wood flooring, a feature fireplace, and patio doors which lead out into the rear-garden. There is plenty of space for an eight-seater dining table, and additional furnishings. A practical cloakroom completes the ground floor.
The first-floor rooms are accessed via a spacious landing, and consist of two exceptionally large doubles – one of which has a useful built in wardrobe; a smaller bedroom – which is currently being used as a home office; and a family bathroom. There is plenty of in-built storage in the form of three deep cupboards, which could potentially be reconfigured in order to extend the back bedroom or bathroom.
The fourth bedroom is located in the loft conversion on the second-floor, and benefits from an en-suite bathroom. This is a characterful and cosy room, with exposed beams, eaves storage, modern spotlights, and plenty of natural light. It is sure to make an excellent guest bedroom, or teenagers’ sanctuary.
The rear garden is reached via a short flight of stone steps. Bordered by high wooden fencing, it feels both secure and private, and is ideal for summer barbecues, a trampoline, or children’s swings and slides.
The property has a private single garage, and use of free, on-street parking which is for residents only.
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. Stephens primary is only ten minutes down the road by foot, and St. Marks secondary is even closer. The village of Larkhall is a fifteen minute walk away, and provides a wide array of conveniences – including a small co-op, butchers, delicatessen, small theatre, community centre 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. It is approximately a half an hour walk from the property. World class sporting facilities are available at the nearby Bath Rugby and Cricket clubs, and at Bath University. There are many excellent state and private, primary and secondary schools in the area. For commuters, Junction 18 of the M4 is approx. 12 miles away, and Bath Spa Train Station offers high-speed rail links to London (Paddington 90 minutes) and the South West.
