A delightful period cottage situated at the top of a highly sought after road in the centre of the village. The property offers period features throughout with large sitting room and kitchen diner to the ground floor and three double bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor. Externally the terraced rear garden provides a studio/office and you will also find a detached garage/workshop close by.
You enter into to a small entrance hallway which provides access to the sitting room and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room is a spacious cosy room with large Bath stone fireplace with gas fire burner and cupboards and shelves to the alcoves. Stripped wooden flooring throughout with an original door leading to the kitchen diner. The kitchen diner is another spacious room with stripped wood and tiled flooring. Modern wall and floor units with worktop, inset sink drainer and space for appliances. A door leads to the rear garden.
To the first floor the split level landing gives access to the three double bedrooms and bathroom. The bathroom is fitted with bath, walk-in shower, washbasin and WC.
The rear garden is terraced with many different facets. To the rear of the house you find a paved seating area with wooden shed. Further on from here a path leads to another shed and the studio/office. This is a wooden structure and with some modernisation could provide a useful home office. Stone steps lead up to another terrace seating area which provides some nice far reaching views. There is also gated access to Church Road from here and this seating area could also provide off-street parking for one vehicle.
A stone built detached garage/workshop is situated approx 20m along from the property. Probably constructed originally for someone mechanically minded as it has a repair pit inside and makes for a very useful and practical workshop.
Combe Down sits on a level ridge approximately 1.25 mile (2 km) to the south of Bath city centre. It sits at an altitude of 500ft and hence has always been renowned for its clean air quality with many moving from the city for this reason. The village is adjoined to the north by large areas of natural woodland with public footpaths offering stunning panoramic views overlooking the city and equally gratifying views of the Cotswold (AONB) valleys to the south.
There is simply no other village like it on the outskirts of the city with such a wide range of local amenities and schooling. This makes it a very popular place for families and those looking for an area with a rural feeling but still within walking distance of the city. You will find every level of schooling in the local vicinity with three nurseries, two academy primary schools, Ralph Allen academy senior school and two independent schools in Prior Park and Monkton Combe, both with pre-prep, prep and senior schools. There is also Threeways School which provides for special education needs from ages 4 to 19 years.
Locally there is an abundance of amenities with doctor’s surgery, Bath BMI Clinic, dentist, two pharmacies, highly reputed car garage, award winning delicatessen, fish and chip shop, hair salon, builders merchants, beauty therapist, bakery and Co-op mini-markets. On the western edge of the village is a Tesco Express with petrol station and a large Sainsburys supermarket can also be found in neighbouring Odd Down. Nearby you will also find the excellent country club spa hotel Combe Grove Manor, which provides fine dining, gymnasium, spa treatments, swimming facilities and tennis courts both indoor and outdoor. There is also a new development being built in the village called Mulberry Park.

With a new primary school, children’s nursery, cafe and state-of-the-art leisure and business facilities, with further amenities to follow, Mulberry Park will also build Bath’s first new park for 100 years.
