Believed to have been a former farmhouse, originally named Wellbourne Cottage, Pear Tree House is a fine grade II listed terraced cottage dating back to the early 1800’s. The property is set in an elevated position on the southern fringes of the city and accommodation is laid out over three storeys, incorporating the former vaults on the lower ground. You approach the property via stone steps to the beautifully presented terraced garden to the front aspect. The upper tier with its decorative parapet wall provides a grand access to the front door. Once inside you immediately notice the Bath stone floor in the hallway with Bath stone stairs leading to the first floor. A door leads you to the light and spacious sitting room with stripped wood floor, large sash window, decorative ceiling cornice and lovely feature fireplace. A cupboard in this room has usefully been adapted to provide a utility space with washing machine and dryer. A door leads you through to the kitchen at the rear aspect with industrial style wall and floor units and access to the rear courtyard and stairs to the lower ground floor. To the first floor landing you have access to the recently fitted modern family bathroom and further steps lead to the bedrooms. Bedroom one is a very spacious room with light large sash window and built in wardrobes to the alcoves. Bedroom two has space for a double bed and again a large light sash window to the front aspect. Back to the ground floor and stairs from the kitchen lead you down to the former vaults on the lower ground floor. Light and airy these rooms have recently been re-tanked by the current owners and have been utilised as a spacious dining room and a further reception room providing office space or bedroom. Externally to the rear of the property is a small courtyard seating area with wooden built steps leading up to the hardstanding dedicated off-street parking space. This is accessed via a private road from the main Wellsway road.
The property is situated on the southern edge of the city almost equidistant between the highly desired villages of Bear Flat and Combe Down. Both provide all the amenities and services you could require and with a Tesco and Sainsburys supermarkets nearby too. Local leisure facilities are provided by Entry Hill golf course, Hampset cricket club, Baskervilles gymnastics centre, Odd Down playing fields with its cycle track and the gorgeous Alexandra Park with its unique views of the city. There are an abundance of local schools with Beechen Cliff for boys and Hayesfield for girls, Saint Gregorys, Saint Martin’s primary and Three Ways (special needs) whilst Combe Down offers co-ed in Ralph Allen, two nurseries and two primaries. The private schools of Monkton Combe and Prior Park are also within a short drive.
