DESCRIPTION
Grove Lodge is a substantial link-detached Georgian residence built circa 1788, full of beautiful period features including stone floor hallways, marble fireplaces, exposed wood flooring, shuttered windows and a stunning wisteria clad frontage. There is the most wonderful magnolia tree to the front lawn and separate utility access.
The original front door opens into the generous entrance hall with an exposed oak floor, a half-moon top-light and a stained glass window. There is also a wine store in the entrance hall with the original stone wine bins intact. The main hall interconnects with the ground floor accommodation and has a gorgeous Bath stone and slate tessellated pattern floor. The main staircase rises from here to the top of the house with a turned mahogany topped rail and banister. There is access to the cellar through an ingenious mechanism wood door. The cellar is currently used for storage but could be used as a gym or games room.
The bright, elegant sitting and drawing rooms look out to the front of the property both featuring high ceilings, tall, shuttered windows and period marble fireplaces. The drawing room looks out through large bay windows to the front gardens and has a tranquil feel. The adjoining bathroom links through to a charming Victorian greenhouse and utility room.
There is a well-appointed secondary kitchen which could be used as a cook's/chef’s kitchen in tandem with the principal kitchen. The main kitchen/dining room has a newly fitted Neptune kitchen with quartz worktops and looks out through shuttered windows to the rear garden, with an exposed Bath stone floor and space for an island unit, dining table and chairs. A large garden room/snug sits to the side of the kitchen and has its own bathroom and access to the rear garden.
To the first floor the landing features a Butler’s table and consists of the principal bedroom suite and two further double bedrooms. The principal bedroom is of a generous size with amazing views over to Bathampton and has its own sitting/dressing room and a spacious en suite bathroom. The second bedroom also has its own en suite.
To the second floor are two excellent double bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom. The bedrooms have high ceilings and large south-facing windows with even more far-reaching views over the Avon Valley. A shower room also sits on this floor.
The gardens to the front are bounded by stone walls, with a walled gated side access. There is high laurel hedging to the front boundary, a stunning magnolia tree and a mature planted border. The large central lawn is separated from the house by the original stone balustrade. Clematis and Wisteria climb the front here and frame the front door and sitting room windows beautifully. The rear garden is wide and level and of an excellent size, narrowing to the rear where a large store can be found. The lawn has a beautifully manicured apple tree to the centre. There is space for seating both on the lawn and the patio immediately to the rear of the house.

SITUATION
With southerly views over the Avon Valley, Lambridge is on the eastern outskirts of Bath, approximately 1.25 miles from the centre and very well placed for easy access to the M4. It is an easy walk into town, and there is a bus stop over the road taking you straight into town and onto the railway station. The house stands well back from the road and is secluded by its matured gardens and stone walls.
The village of Larkhall has some excellent independent shopping facilities with a post office, delicatessen, chemist, hardware, greengrocer, theatre, bistro, doctors’ surgery, vet and primary school within 0.5 miles. There is direct access to the canal path over the road along Grosvenor Bridge Road taking you one direction all the way to Bradford on Avon traffic free and in the other to Bath city centre via Sydney Gardens and Great Pulteney Street. Private schooling options are many, with King Edwards School not far as well as Kingswood and the Royal High school easily accessible on the way up Lansdown.
Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage and provides an extensive range of business, entertainment and cultural facilities along with two universities. There are well regarded schools in both the state and independent sectors and a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time from 82 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time from 15 mins). Junction 18 of the M4 motorway is about 9 miles to the north and Bristol International airport is some 20 miles to the northwest.

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.
