Hightimbers is set at the end of a small cul de sac of two properties, giving a hidden away feel, and backing onto sloping away fields, providing wonderful rural views across to Solsbury Hill. The property was built around 1973 and is on the market for the first time since its construction.
Light and spacious accommodation is set across two floors with scope for further extension, as the house sits in the middle of its gardens, linking to the side with its single storey double garage with garden store behind. A later addition is the conservatory to the rear, accessed off the
kitchen/breakfast room and opening onto the garden. The hall and dining room have steps down to the large living room with glazed sliding doors opening onto the front garden. All the principal reception rooms and bedrooms have wonderful rural views in an easterly direction, giving a quiet and rural feel. A five bar wooden gate leads to a tarmac driveway sweeping around to the garaging and leading off to a further parking area at the top of the garden. The gardens lead around the house to a large rear lawn and enclosed by high hedgerow and mature trees.

This is an excellent position, being set back at the end of a cul de sac off a no through road on the northern slopes of Bath in the popular residential area of Lansdown and within walking distance of some of the best schools in Bath to include Kingswood, The Royal High School and St
Stephens Primary School. Bath city centre is a mile away, at the bottom of the road, with regular bus access. The Hare and Hounds Inn is just a short distance up the hill with excellent food and a wonderful setting, having the same desirable views as the house itself. The M4 (J18) is 10 miles
to the north and Bath Spa Station has mainline access to London Paddington (from 90 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (from 15 minutes). Bath is renowned for its historic origins, Georgian architecture and its excellent shopping,
leisure and cultural amenities.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
