Property description

A beautifully proportioned and positioned semi-detached family home with far reaching views.


Situated on the western fringes of Bath, Portledge House enjoys an unspoilt outlook and is located in a sought after residential location, close to the Royal United Hospital and within easy access of both Bath City Centre and Bristol. The local area is particularly well served by a choice of excellent schools in both the state and private sector including Weston All Saints, Newbridge Primary, St Mary's rc Primary, Oldfield School, Bath Royal High and Kingswood.

Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture that offers a wide variety of cultural, leisure, sports and shopping facilities along with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time from 75 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time from 15 mins). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 11 miles north.


Portledge House is a substantial semi-detached family home situated in a wonderful position with south facing views. The property has been in its current ownership for over 20 years and provides versatile accommodation over four floors. There is a wealth of period charm and proportions as one would expect from a house of this era.

The property is entered into an excellent size reception hallway with a beautiful staircase rising to the upper and lower floors. The ground floor has a magnificent drawing room to the rear with truly stunning views. In addition there is a study, bedroom and a cloakroom. There are three spacious double bedrooms on the first and second floors, two of which have en suite bathrooms. There is access to eaves storage from the top bedroom and the family bathroom is on the first floor.

On the lower ground floor is a kitchen/breakfast room with high ceilings and a flagstone floor. There is an extensive range of base and wall units with high end fitted appliances. Adjacent is a pantry and storage area. The dining room, like the rest of the house has grand proportions and a beautiful timber floor. The current owners have exposed the original well for the house and have had it lit and a toughened glass overlay. It is a really wonderful feature. There are several vaults which have been tanked and are used as a tv/media room, utility room, workshop and there is a useful boot/freezer room. There is access out to the garden from this level as well as from the ground floor.

The gardens and grounds of Portledge House are of particular note and have been beautifully landscaped. The property is accessed down a block paved driveway which leads to an ample parking area for numerous cars. There is also a double garage with electric door and storage above. Portledge House enjoys several areas to enjoy outside dining and entertaining while making the most of the views. There are various areas of lawn and beautiful flower beds, shrubs and trees. There are mature vines that produce beautiful sweet grapes each year along with the other fruit trees in the garden including fig and espalier apple trees. There are two glazed garden rooms/conservatories which are accessed from the garden.
