Elm Place is part of a grand Regency period terrace on the edge of the ever popular location of Bear Flat, just to the south of the city centre. You approach the property through wrought iron gate and across the stone laid terrace to the front door. Once inside you immediately notice the original limestone flooring lining the hallway with stairs leading down to the lower ground floor and first floor with access provided to the study and sitting room. The sitting room is a lovely light grand room, as is common with the Regency period, with decorative cornice, feature open fireplace, bespoke alcove cupboards and large 12-pane sash windows providing far reaching westerly views across the neighbouring parkland and beyond. The study also provides stripped wooden flooring, feature fireplace, alcove cupboards and 12-pane sash window. Stone steps with wooden balustrade lead up to the first floor where you find two double bedrooms. Bedroom one has similar proportions to the sitting room with alcove cupboards, built-in shower with washbasin and WC and provides more elevated far reaching views.
Stairs lead again up to the second floor where you find a further double bedroom with feature fireplace and those views again. There is also a shower room with walk-in shower, washbasin, bidet and WC. You will also find a useful eaves storage cupboard.
Stairs from the front door in the hallway also lead down to the lower ground floor where you find the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is fitted with contemporary wall and floor units with worktop with inset Butlers sink, space for appliances and a Range oven set in a beautiful Bath stone surround fireplace. Two glazed wooden doors lead out to a double vaulted storage area to the front of the property. The kitchen is also opened onto the dining room making this a lovely area to entertain in. The dining room has a feature fireplace with storage cupboards to the eves and double glazed doors opening up onto the sunroom. The sunroom provides lovely views across the garden and a spiral staircase leads down to the basement level. You will also find a WC at this level.
On the basement level you find a further double bedroom and bathroom with bath, washbasin and WC. Double, glazed doors lead out onto the rear garden patio area.
The rear garden is laid to lawn and well stocked with beds, shrubs and small trees with vegetable plots to the rear. A path leads to a stone bult double garage at the rear of the plot. The garage could accommodate two vehicles and provides an EV charging point. It also houses the solar panels on the roof. A lane leads from the garage back to Bloomfield Road.
Elm Place forms part of a Grade II section of early 19th century terrace at 6-18 Elm Place, situated within the Bath conservation area and World Heritage Site. It forms part of a two storey section of modest, residential terrace bookended by Grade II early 19th century three-storey residential dwellings at 2-4 and 20-24 Bloomfield Road. The terrace in its entirety has included long, strip garden plots to the rear with the inclusion of outbuildings ancillary to the main dwellings at the westernmost end overlooking the Bear Flat allotment gardens.
In the 18th century Bath was re-invented as a fashionable health resort, expanding dramatically beyond its city walls. Medieval streets were transformed into a spacious and beautiful classical city, where architecture and the natural landscape complemented each other. Innovative forms of town planning including terraces, squares and crescents were introduced. Elm Place can be said to have been part of the principles of the 18th century town planning.
The property is located on the very northern edge of what is known as Bloomfield bordering the highly regarded area of Bear Flat. Bear Flat was voted 'one of the best places to live in the UK in 2020' by The Times Newspaper. They commented 'High above the tourists in the city this villagey plateau is heaven for young families. It’s a 10-minute downhill walk to Bath Spa station and a couple of minutes more to the city centre. It has a Co-op, a pharmacy and a range of independent shops and eateries. You can settle in, throw yourself into the lively local community and enjoy unbeatable views from the playground in Alexandra Park.'
Bear Flat is an ideal location for those who work in the city of Bath or are looking to commute to Bristol or London. Both Bath Spa and Oldfield Park train stations are within walking distance from the property. Locally there is an abundance of amenities providing everything that one might need; cafes, restaurant, barbers, florist, Co-Op, newsagents, pharmacy, deli, wine merchant and public house. In addition the delightful nearby Moorland Road hosts a plethora of shops, supermarket and renowned family butcher, grocer and fishmonger. Recreationally there is Alexandra Park, with quite possibly the best views over the city, a number of gyms and Baskervilles gymnastic centre. Local schools include Beechen Cliff, Ralph Allen, Hayesfield Girls school, Paragon, Moorlands and Widcombe Infant and Junior schools. Nearby Bloomfield Green is footsteps away from the property and is a lovely green park with children's play area. It also provides access to the 'Two Tunnels' cycle/foot path which takes you to Combe Down, Midford and Wellow to the south whilst to the north you can also travel in the same manner to Bristol.
The churches of St. Bartholomew and Beechen Cliff both provide community spaces. The hall in Bruton Avenue hosts a monthly community market, a toddler group and a tea party whilst providing valuable social space to rent for events, classes and youth activities and a thriving pre-school playgroup. Bear Flat Artists is a successful co-operative supporting annual Open Studios exhibiting in resident’s houses and venues across the area as well as a Christmas art fair.
