This three storey, four bedroom Edwardian terraced home sits in a sought after location in the centre of Combe Down village adjacent to the village green. The terrace was built in the first few years of the 1900's by renowned local builder Mr Hancock. The property is nicely presented throughout and provides spacious living accommodation whilst retaining period charm. You enter the property into a lobby and are greeted by original geometric tiled floor and wooden glazed door, with decorative glass, leading you through to the hallway. The hallway provides access to the sitting room, dining room, kitchen and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room is a spacious room with a large bay sash window to the front aspect letting natural light flood in through Plantation shutters, with wooden flooring, decorative cornice and ceiling rose and grand feature fireplace. There are also bespoke built wooden shelves to the alcoves and double doors open up onto the dining room. The dining room has wooden floor, shelves and cupboard to the alcoves.

Bedroom one is a very spacious room with large bay window to the front aspect, with Plantation shutters, overlooking the village green. Stairs from the landing lead up to a very good size double bedroom in the converted loft with ample storage and far reaching views from the roof light windows. You also find an ensuite showeroom with WC and washbasin. Externally the south facing rear garden provides a wooden decked laid seating area to the rear of the property. The remaining garden is laid to lawn with established bed with flowers, shrubs and small trees, with a stone chipped area to the rear with a wooden built shed and secure gate leading to a private lane.
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.
