Property description

Immaculately presented contemporary three/four bedroom single storey home with six sets of double doors opening out onto a courtyard garden in an exclusive quiet development of three other homes located down a private road yet within walking distance of the shops and amenities of friendly Combe Down village, two miles from central Bath.
The vendors say: “It was the unusual, interesting design of this house which attracted us to it 17 years ago. The house is one storey high and built in Bath stone with internal glulam beams, these are timber laminates from Scandinavian sustainable forests that are very strong and consume less energy than any other building materials as well as looking very attractive. The house has a large plot and is in an L shape around a courtyard garden as well as having more garden to the end and side.”
“The kitchen/family room is my favourite room of the house. We very recently converted the double garage, which was accessed from the hall to create a new kitchen/family room. This is now a huge space – approximately 27’ long which opens out onto the side garden with a set of french doors. There is a sloping ceiling with a contemporary glazed roof and glulam beams, oak flooring and underfloor heating and an eight foot refectory table: So it is a fantastic room for entertaining as it has so much atmosphere as well as plenty of space. The large sitting room has limed oak flooring, two sets of French doors and a beautiful Rudloe stone fireplace which creates a real focal point to the room. The study/dining room/bedroom four (originally the kitchen) and hall have limestone flooring.”
“Bedroom two was in fact two separate bedrooms when we bought the house but we just took out the dividing wall, so if the new owner needed separate rooms again it would be very easy to convert back as the bedroom has two windows. There is a family bathroom and the master has limed oak flooring and a luxurious en suite.”
“We recently installed a very efficient electric central heating system. These are dsr premium electric heaters: High end German precision engineered products with electronic digital thermostats that are individually controlled from your smart phone and are extremely economical to use. Each radiator can be controlled independently, and it can even detect if a window is open and so adjust. The radiators are brilliant, they look conventional but if you want to repaint the wall for example, they can be unhooked and then put back on really easily.”
“The courtyard garden, which all the rooms look out onto, has a decked area all the way round, and an Indian flag stone patio in the centre with terracotta pots. The garden is very private, even though there are three other houses nearby they all face a different way from each other so no-one is overlooked. All the neighbours are lovely, we are very lucky here.”
“When we converted the garage into a kitchen we added an extension and a single garage, there is also parking on the hard-standing as well.”
“Combe Down is a genuine village, but only two miles from Bath Spa train station, a walk or easy bus ride – the bus goes every 20 minutes and the stop is 5 minutes’ walk from the house. There is a convenience store and deli. Prior Park Landscape Garden (National Trust) and Rainbow Woods are nearby, and Combe Down has its own nursery, primary school with a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating, park, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries and pharmacy. It is within the catchment area of Ralph Allen, the ‘Outstanding’ state secondary school, private schools Prior Park College and Monkton Combe are nearby, and Bath University is just along the road, together with Bath Clinic (private healthcare facility), Combe Grove Country Club and several excellent pubs and restaurants. There is an art trail once a year through the village. The village also has its own rugby club, Combe Down rfc. To the south is open countryside with spectacular views over the Midford Valley. The Combe Down tunnel re-opened in 2013 is now a cycling and walking tunnel – the longest in Britain – and along with the shorter Devonshire Tunnel is known as the Two Tunnels Greenway. All in all, it is an ideal place to live.”
