Built by the current owners only 3 years ago, this beautiful four/five bedroom home has a contemporary feel, full of natural light and is perfectly laid out for family life. A fantastic open atrium entrance hall looks up to the first floor with the stairwell leading you up onto the light and airy gallery landing lit from above by roof skylights. The hub of the house is the open plan kitchen/dining room which spans from the front to back and has French doors opening on the sunny back garden and paved terrace. There is underfloor heating to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor. There is a light and spacious sitting room that also looks out over the garden as well as a large study that sits to the front of the house. There is an annexable part of the property spanning both floors giving another bedroom and living area with its own washroom facilities, however this can easily be part of the main house giving the perfect space for a home office/playroom or guest suite.
To the first floor are four bedrooms alongside a fifth bedroom in the annexable portion of the house. The house gives such flexible accommodation that one could also use the study downstairs as a sixth bedroom.
The gardens surround the property and are well planted with wide open lawn and mature trees and shrubs surrounding it bordered to the patio with a stone retaining wall. The large stone-laid patio is a suntrap and there is a sail-like awning to attach during the sunnier months should one wish.
There is ample driveway parking to the front of the property, as well as a single garage.

The position here is excellent, being between Widcombe and Prior Park, within walking distance of the Widcombe parade with numerous shops and facilities to include a doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, delicatessen, CO-OP store, pubs and restaurants. A short distance away is the popular Prior Park Garden centre with tea rooms and schools nearby are excellent, namely The Paragon, Prior Park, King Edwards, Widcombe Primary, Ralph Allen and Beechen Cliff all in close proximity.
Bath city centre is a mile away with its excellent shopping, cultural, leisure and sporting facilities as well as Bath Spa Station with main line access to Bristol (15mins) and London Paddington (presently from 90 minutes – soon to be quicker with the electrification of the line). The outlook from the property is lovely, overlooking Rainbow Wood House and its pretty neighbouring church and having lovely walks and scenery on your doorstep.

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.
