Property description

This four hundred year old terraced cottage in the charming village of Batheaston is a unique and truly special family home. “Due to its age it is full of character, ” says the current owner, “with its old fireplaces and beams. The location is perfect too, within easy flat walking and cycling to the city centre along the canal path.”
With four bedrooms, the property is spacious yet homely. “The house has a very cosy feel to it, ” says the owner, “especially in winter when the fire in the lounge is lit. It’s a great family home, with thick walls ensuring plenty of privacy and a degree of soundproofing so that teenagers can have their own space.”
Since moving in, the current owner has made various improvements to the property, installing a new kitchen and bathroom and replastering and decorating throughout. “The decor all remains very much in keeping with the house, ” says the owner, “with white walls and black beams and even a free standing bathtub with cast iron feet in the bathroom. The windows have also been recently repaired and the whole house damp proofed, and a dedicated utility room has been added too. The house offers plenty of storage, unusual for such an old property, with large wardrobes in the bedrooms.”
“I love the lounge with its big open fireplace, and also the master bedroom, which used to be the reading room of the village!”
“With space for a trampoline and three sheds, the garden is spacious with plenty of storage. We have a patio perfect for barbecues, and we have held many summer parties there.”
“We have had many happy family times here. I got married and walked up the road to the church from the house.”
“We will greatly miss the cosiness of the house, as well as our lovely neighbours.”
With stunning views across the valley, the property enjoys one of the best locations in the village. “It used to be the only house in the village” says the owner. “It belonged to the local blacksmith, who would shoe the horses along the road to Chippenham.” This property is a real landmark in an area of great historic interest. “The place has a real sense of history, and the village is even featured in the Domesday Book as Estone, ” says the owner. The village retains its heritage to this day, but now offers all modern amenities and convenience. Situated to the East of the picturesque Georgian city of Bath, Batheaston rests at the head of the scenic Bybrook, Limpley Stoke, River Avon and St. Catherine’s Valleys. The village offers a small supermarket, post office, pub, chemist’s, veterinary surgery and doctors’ surgery. “It is a lovely village, ” says the owner “with an organic coffee shop on the main road.”
Frequent buses run from Batheaston to World Heritage Bath City Centre, with its wide range of cultural, leisure, sporting and shopping facilities including The Theatre Royal, Bath Recreational Ground and Bath Abbey as well as a broad selection of restaurants and shops. Bath is surrounded by stunning countryside, of which Solsbury Hill, Bathampton Meadows and the Kennet and the Avon Canal are popular with walkers and cyclists.

Ideal for commuters, Bath Spa Station offers 90 minute services to London Paddington and access to the South West Rail Network. The M4 can be accessed from Junction 18 at Tormarton approximately 10 miles North of the City.
