A superb country house built in 1910 as carved in the local stone elevations under a clay tile roof set in the middle of large gardens and grounds and having incredible views down the valley to its southerly aspect.
A gravel driveway leads to a parking area in front of a single and a double garage. On the back of the double garage is a home office with a kitchenette and W.C and having lovely views across the gardens and the valley beyond.
A set of steps lead gently down to the large front door case, opening into the large reception hall with accommodation set across three floors. The two reception rooms at the front of the house have fireplaces, one with a wood burning stove and both rooms have French doors opening onto a private decked side terrace with lovely views and access to the garden. The other side of the hallway is a large kitchen with fitted wooden storage cabinets and a central island unit under a granite work surface with a double Belfast sink and a fitted double AGA with gas hobs. It has quarry tiled flooring that leads through to the dining area with a utility and larder off it. French doors open onto the huge decking area from the dining area at the side of the house with an awning to shelter from the sun, creating an excellent entertaining area and steps lead down to the garden. A lower floor presently serves as an additional bedroom/study but has versatile usage, often providing a home cinema room.
The first floor is dominated by the substantial main bedroom with an en suite shower room that opens into the fourth bedroom and is currently used as a large dressing room. The main bedroom is crowned by double doors opening onto a large balcony with incredible views. There is another en suite bedroom on this floor as well as the two other bedrooms and a large family bathroom, recently updated with a decorative tile floor, central bath and vanity sink unit with marble top. The house has benefitted from extensive refurbishment throughout.
The gardens are delightful, gently sloping down the south facing valley, leading from the decking to a large lawn surrounded by mature shrubs and enclosed by high trees giving needed shelter from the sunny aspect. A lower gravel area provides a further relaxing area leading down to a more informal glade and a path leads down to the lane below giving access to the village below.

Ideally placed for both the River Avon and the Kennet and Avon Canal which run through the village, as well as the Georgian city of Bath to the north.

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.
