You approach this property via the resin bound gravel driveway which provides parking for at least five vehicles and access to the detached garage. Upon entering the house into the entrance hallway you are greeted by a large reception lounge area with grand feature fireplace log burner with stairs to the first floor and access to the lounge, cloakroom and kitchen/dining area. The lounge provides good space for family viewing and again provides a feature fireplace with log burner. Through to the modern open plan kitchen dining area you start to notice a real sense of light and space as this in-turn opens up onto a large pitched roof sunroom which provides access to the rear garden and outside decked seating area.
To the first floor the landing provides access to all bedrooms and family bathroom. Bedroom one is a real showpiece being over 25' in length and ending at a Juliet balcony with double doors overlooking the rear garden and beyond. This room also provides a good size ensuite shower room. Bedroom two is a good sized double room with front aspect. Bedroom three is special with ensuite shower room and wooden stairs leading up to the converted loft room. The loft room has plentiful storage and a Velux window affords wide reaching views across the Midford valley. Bedroom four is a single size room.
Outside the rear garden is an absolute delight with established beds, veg patch and mainly laid to lawn with a large decked seating area to the rear of the house. The garden also houses the wooden built and fully insulated workshop which at approaching 30' in length makes an ideal home office or workspace with ample additional storage space. There is a further shed and wooden built and glazed summer house.
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. An award winning development of 700 new homes and currently becoming one of Bath’s finest, new residential communities. 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.
The local bus service provides quarter hourly services during the day into the city. For the walkers among you Bath Spa station is a shade over 1.2 mile from the village and you are also afforded a plethora of countryside walks into an 'area of outstanding natural beauty' minutes from the village itself.
