A very spacious five bedroom Edwardian end terrace family home. Period features throughout and rumour has it that this property was built by one of the builders of the terrace for himself. This is perhaps evident in the enhanced period features in the ornate cornice in rooms and the embossed picture work on the door panels.
You enter the property through the front door into the lobby, which retains its original terrazzo tiled floor and beautiful inner door with decorative stained glass panels. The hallway provides access to the sitting room, living room, kitchen diner, cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room has a light large splayed bay window to the front aspect with a period feature fireplace flanked by alcoves with cupboards and shelves. The living room also features a period feature fireplace with original cupboards and shelves to the alcoves. The kitchen dining room is to the rear aspect and this area has been extended to make a light and spacious open family dining area. The kitchen provides a casual country cottage style feel with free standing wooden sink unit with matching island in the middle of the room and a large dual range cooker beneath a stainless steel extractor hood. There is plenty of space for a fridge, dishwasher and other free-standing cupboards. Particularly useful is the walk-in utility/store cupboard with wall-mounted Worcester combi boiler, plumbing for a washing machine and plenty of extra shelving. The dining area allows for a large family table and glazed doors lead out onto a raised decked seating area overlooking the garden.
The first floor provides three double bedrooms, a large single room and a bathroom. Bedroom one is a very spacious room boasting a large splay bay window to the front aspect and feature period fireplace. Bedroom two is a charming room with large period fireplace and window to the side aspect. There are two further bedrooms to the rear aspect next to the family bathroom. This bathroom is fitted with a white suite of hand basin, WC and bath with shower taps. Stairs lead to the loft room or bedroom three which is a double in size and offers plenty of storage in the eaves. The roof lights to the front aspect provide some lovely far reaching views and you also find an ensuite shower room at this level.
Externally the rear garden benefits from delightful, mainly walled rear gardens, with a raised decked area adjoining the house. Decked steps lead down to a brick paved area which leads on to a lawn with a selection of mature shrubs. To the rear is a timber shed and a wooden fence with gate allowing for pedestrian access on to the back lane. A lane also runs along the side boundary of the property.
Bear Flat was voted 'one of the best places to live in the UK in 2020' by The Times Newspaper. They commented 'High above the tourists in the city this villagey plateau is heaven for young families. It’s a 10-minute downhill walk to Bath Spa station and a couple of minutes more to the city centre. It has a Co-op, a pharmacy and a range of independent shops and eateries, including the impeccably sustainable and friendly Good Bear cafe, where the 2014 Master Chef winner Ping Coombes hosts supper clubs. You can settle in, throw yourself into the lively local community and enjoy unbeatable views from the playground in Alexandra Park.'
We couldn't agree more as Bear Flat is an ideal location for those who work in the city of Bath or are looking to commute to Bristol or London. Both Bath spa and Oldfield Park train stations are within walking distance from the property. Locally there is an abundance of amenities providing everything that one might need; cafes, restaurant, barbers, florist, Co-Op, newsagents, pharmacy, deli, wine merchant and public house. In addition the delightful nearby Moorland road hosts a plethora of shops, supermarket and renowned family butcher. Recreationally there is Alexandra Park, with quite possibly the best views over the city, Entry Hill golf club and Baskervilles gymnastic centre. Local schools include Beechen Cliff, Ralph Allen, Hayesfield Girls school, Moorlands and Widcombe Infant and Junior schools.
