This property was built c.1965 and has been occupied by the same family ever since. A much loved family home it could now do with some refurbishment throughout and offers the potential to extend with planning permission about to be submitted. It is situated in a much sought after location in the village and its elevated situation provides stunning far reaching views of the surrounding valley and countryside. You approach the property across stone chipped driveway and enter through a door which leads you to the front garden. You immediately notice the beautiful views and nearby Midford Castle setting a lovely backdrop in the near distance. You enter the property to the eastern end into the kitchen breakfast room. The kitchen has recently had modern units installed and the breakfast room is glazed to all sides to provide the views. Adjoining this room to the front aspect is a further room which could be used for dining or as a bedroom. This could potentially be knocked through to create a large open plan kitchen dining room. Further along the hallway you find a utility room, WC, study and enter into what is used as a dining area with large sliding glazed doors opening onto the garden. From here you proceed into a good size living room with new log burner and views to the front aspect through a bay window. To the corner of the room a small staircase rises up to a landing with access to bedroom one, bathroom and a shower room. Further stairs take you down to two more double bedrooms and a shower room with access to the rear garden from here too. Externally the house sits on a plot approaching 1/3 acre. The land is level surrounding the house and mostly to the front aspect. To the eastern aspect the garden rises up to a small gated area. From here a path leads up around the back of the house providing even more panoramic views and onto a vantage point at the top with a wooden bench to take it all in. The garden is very well stocked with established beds, shrubs, small and large trees. To the front aspect you have access to the large double integral garage which also houses the heating system. There is off-street parking for two cars on the driveway.
This property is located on the southern slopes of the city of Bath in the highly desired village of Combe Down. Summer Lane is a much sought after road in the village due to its countryside feeling, surroundings and far reaching views.

The proposal is to add a first storey extension to the property to create a four double bedroom house with a single bedroom granny annexe. Whilst at the same time improving the energy efficiency of the building by bringing it up to current Building Control standards by using a combination of new and traditional materials. In this way the house will be transformed into a sustainable house that saves on CO2 and will last well into the future.
The present walls of 50mm cavities will be filled with ‘Technitherm’, while the internal walls will be lined with 62.5mm insulated plasterboard. The upper floor will be of timber frame construction with 160mm PIR insulation to create an energy efficient home. The ground floor will have underfloor heating with radiators in the bedrooms. All plans and elevation drawings can be supplied by the agent. The current vendor is an architect and has created the plans and drawings himself. We can also provide estimated costs for the build.
There is no mains gas to the property at present. The current owner has a quote from Wales & West to excavate and provide a supply. Details of this can be supplied.
