Homefield is situated in an extremely convenient position on the south eastern side of the City on a quiet residential road which runs between Bathwick Hill and Widcombe Hill. Bathwick Hill itself offers local amenities, as well as the University of Bath with its excellent sports complex. There is a frequent bus service into the City Centre and the mainline railway station is just over a mile away.
Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage and enjoys a wealth of cultural, business and recreational facilities. Communication links are excellent with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approximately 90 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (approximately 15 minutes). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 10 miles north of the City.
Homefield is a substantial detached house of considerable character, set in a superb location at the top of Widcombe Hill. The property offers considerable scope to be modernised and enhanced to a purchaser's specification and subject to consent being granted, the house could also be extended.
The house is constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof, approached through a set of automated wrought iron gates. The sweeping drive way at the front of the property provides parking for several cars. In addition, there is a detached garage and annexe accommodation.
The spacious accommodation is arranged over ground and two upper floors and the property has a wealth of very attractive features including coved ceiling cornices, wonderful fire surrounds and mantelpieces.
On entering the house, you are greeted by a spacious entrance hall with useful cloakroom. There are three excellent reception rooms on the ground floor, all of wonderful proportions. There is double height conservatory which was added in 1995, leading from the main drawing room with attractive terracotta and slate tiled floor and French doors leading to the garden. From the ground floor of the conservatory a wrought iron spiral staircase leads up to a balcony, giving access through to the master bedroom.
The kitchen is of a good size with plenty of units and fitted appliances. Double doors separate the kitchen from the breakfast room which gives flexibility; the two rooms work perfectly independently and provide great space for informal entertaining. The utility room is accessed from the breakfast room. In addition, there is a separate wc.
Upstairs, on the first floor, the master bedroom suite is extremely spacious with wonderful views over the gardens and grounds. There are two further bedrooms on this floor, one with its own en suite and a separate family bathroom. On the top floor there are three further bedrooms and a shower room.
The location of Homefield is very special, set within private and secluded grounds with wonderful views over the City. The house is approached through wrought iron gates over a brick paved driveway which sweeps around to the front door. In front of the house there is an area of level lawn surrounded by mature trees and to side is the garage with annexe accommodation. There is access to the rear garden from the side of the house; to one side a path leads through to a beech and holly hedge and to the other a paved path leads to the terrace - the perfect spot to sit and entertain. The rear garden is west facing and mainly laid to lawn with a number of specimen trees and a variety of established flower and shrub borders. To the side of the driveway is a garage and annexe which provides a single garage to the front of the building and a bedroom and shower room at the house end.
