A charming and immaculately presented two bedroom terraced cottage in the heart of Combe Down village. It provides homely open plan living whilst retaining its period cottage charm throughout.
You can enter through either the front or rear aspects as a path leads along to both entrances. Entering the front aspect you arrive into a small entrance hallway with access to a WC and a further door leading to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with modern wall and floor units with wooden worktop, inset sink, integrated double oven and gas with space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher. Two rooflights make this a nice light space and you immediately notice the open-plan nature of the accommodation as you can see right through the ground floor to the bi-fold doors at the rear overlooking the garden.
The kitchen opens up onto a dining space with exposed Bath stone fireplace and seating area with a further Bath stone fireplace with log burner. To the rear aspect is another living space with the bifold doors opening up onto a patio seating area in the garden. Stairs also lead from this area up to the first floor.
To the first floor there are two good size bedrooms and bathroom with bath, shower overhead, wash basin and WC.
Externally the 150' south facing garden has been beautifully well kept with its own home office at the rear with power and water to it. The garden also provides two storage sheds and a lovely raised bed vegetable plot. The property is accessed via either the front or rear aspect along a path from the road. Parking is found unrestricted on Gladstone Road.
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.
