Williamstowe properties are located in the heart of Combe Down village and were commissioned to be built in 1884 by the widow of Rev. W Williamson to provide comfortable homes for Combe Down's working men.
There are two approaches to the cottage along a lane and enter via a door to the rear into the kitchen, or through gardens and enter into the conservatory in what is officially the front of the house. The kitchen diner is fitted with a range of modern floor and wall units with built-in Neff oven and 4-ring gas hob with space for a washing machine. There is dining space here too and a rooflight allowing natural light to flood in. You will also find the shower room at this level with walk-in shower, washbasin and WC. The living space has been opened up to the sitting room with it's feature working open fireplace, cupboards and shelves to alcoves, wood effect floor and modern glazed sash windows with a door leading to the conservatory. The conservatory has been built onto what was the original front of the house and provides additional dining or sitting space with double glazed doors opening up onto the garden.
To the first floor you find two double bedrooms, one with period fireplace and potential to build-in cupboard space. Bedroom one provides lovely views across the gardens and to the local church. Bedroom two provides access to the loft room by way of a staircase and this loft room can be used for storage or as an occasional bedroom. (The head height is approx. 6'7"). This part of the property could be adapted, like others, to create an upstairs bathroom by forming a corridor to the loft room stairs.
Externally the front garden is laid to lawn with stone path, wooden shed and log store. A gate leads you to the garden path back to the main road.
This property is likely to suit downsizers and professional couples alike with its peaceful location and being so close to local amenities and bus service to the city.

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.

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.
