The house is set back from Bloomfield Road and approached through ornate stone gate piers. A large gravel parking area borders the house and provides a green canopy. Attributed to the renowned Bath architect Thomas Baldwin, the ashlar stone elevations are enlivened by a three storey large central bay on the garden façade which is bordered by acanthus topped stone pilasters. The principal façade is approached by balustraded steps leading to the welcoming bowed entrance porch with two paneled doors opening into the gracious interiors. The elegant accommodation is arranged over four floors.
Fine architectural details include large sash windows, fireplaces, many working shutters, ceiling mouldings and carved architraves. The lower ground floor (or garden floor) is arranged as two separate 2 bedroom flats which provide a useful income. The ground floor provides elegant living space with high ceilings and enjoyable reception rooms which revolve around the entrance hall and it is here the complementary arrangement of the bowed entrance at the front of the house, the elliptical reception hall and the wide bay window at the rear can best be enjoyed. The drawing room, sitting room and dining room provide a delightful trio of reception rooms with the neighbouring open plan family kitchen/breakfast room ideally placed alongside them.
From the dining room, French doors open onto an iron balcony with steps to the garden. In addition, the ground floor provides a cloakroom, a utility room and a stair hall. The first floor provides the main principal bedroom with ensuite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, a bathroom and two shower rooms on this floor. The second floor provides six further bedrooms and 6 further bath/shower rooms, all of which are ensuite. There is also a linen room. The two flats on the lower ground floor are self-contained, each with its own access.
Bloomfield is a desirable residential area of Bath, set on the city’s southern slopes. There are a range of shops, cafés and restaurants at nearby Bear Flat and a bus service into the city centre.
The city centre of Bath provides a full range of retail outlets together with many amenities including an excellent selection of restaurants, Bath Sports Centre, the Theatre Royal and the Thermae Spa. Complementing this is the open
countryside to the rear with many beautiful walks. This, contrasting with the closeness of the city
centre is, in our opinion, one of the major attractions to this property.
Communication links are excellent with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approx. 85 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 minutes). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 10 miles north.
Outside there is a delightful established garden with open lawn and shrub borders - enclosed by a stone wall and fencing. An open gravel parking area forms the approach to the house.
