The original part of this property is believed to have been built around 1750 and could have been ancillary accommodation for a larger nearby property. It could well have provided accommodation for quarrymen as it sat on the edge of what was known as the Combe Park Estate.
The property was completely refurbished and extended initially in 1995 and has since undergone various improvements and upgrades since that time. It is now an immaculately presented family home offering versatile accommodation across three floors. Set in a very peaceful and private location in the heart of the village with easy level access to all local amenities and local countryside walks.
At ground floor level you find a spacious entrance hallway and then three further rooms which could be utilised as bedrooms, study or further living room with a utility room and shower room with WC. This floor could be habited as a separate dwelling for a dependant relative or as a short/long term rental, if required.
The first floor is accessed via stairs from the ground floor or via its own entrance with steps leading up from the garden. You enter into a large open-plan kitchen diner space with stripped wooden floor and stairs leading to the ground and first floor. A door leads you through to the spacious sitting room with feature Bath stone surround fireplace and dual aspect windows making this a lovely light room. A further door leads you to a more formal dining room with windows overlooking the garden.
To the first floor you find two double bedrooms with a shower room and a family bathroom, both with WC's. The main bedroom is very spacious with bespoke built-in wardrobe space.
Externally the garden is mainly laid to lawn with established plentiful beds shrubs and small trees. There is a access to a separate office space adjoined to the house which is ideal for those working from home. You will also find wooden storage sheds located next to the gated entrance. The property is accessed via a lane from Church Road and then a path across the front of the neighbouring property.
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.
