Believed to have been built around 1928, the property is constructed of ashlar Bath stone elevations under a clay tile roof. It has been extended by the present owners who have
lived here for over 30 years, proving its huge versatility as a family house. The house has a large welcoming reception hall that leads to
the main living rooms all overlooking the gorgeous garden. This is similar with the generous landing area leading to all of the four double bedrooms, the principal bedroom boasting an en suite shower room. The views from the house and gardens stretch over to Charlcombe and Lansdown in the far distance.

The property has numerous character features to include open and working fireplaces and the living room, previously two rooms, has been opened into one large space with double
doors onto the pennant stone terrace with stone balustrade and steps down to the lawn. The kitchen/dining room leads through to a conservatory, again opening directly into the
garden where there are numerous specimen trees and shrubs and making the most of its sunny south westerly aspect.

The sunny terrace with wisteria clad façade leads down to a central path through the lawn to a lovely gazebo at the bottom of the garden. Storage sheds at the top of the garden provide practical space for logs and mowers, whilst a secluded kitchen garden at the lower end of the lawn has vegetable beds, and further storage/potting sheds. The gated driveway leads to a parking area and access to the house and gardens.

Elmhurst is situated in a highly desirable semi-rural village location on the eastern outskirts of Bath. The village has an historic church, a highly regarded primary school and is a renowned area for walking and horse riding. Properties rarely
become available for sale in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is at the end of a small cul de sac of four properties. Given the very close proximity to the city the
property is also particularly well placed for easy access to the nearby schools in Bath, which include; The Royal High School, Kingswood School, St Saviours School and St Stephen’s
Primary School. It is also very conveniently placed for very easy access to the M4 motorway junction 18 (approximately 8 miles) and the city of Bristol. Other amenities nearby include the
shops and conveniences in Larkhall village. The city centre is approximately 2 miles away and offers an excellent selection of restaurants and cafes along with many independent and
national retail outlets, the newly opened Southgate Centre, The Theatre Royal, Thermae Spa, Sports Centre and Bath Spa Station giving you direct access to London Paddington, Bristol
and South Wales.

Proceed out of Bath on the A4 London Road towards Chippenham and after the playing fields on the right and at the set of traffic lights turn left onto the Gloucester Road.
Continue along this road towards the A46 and take the second left turning to Swainswick, just before reaching the A46. Turn immediately right into Gloucester Road and the property is
located just up on the left hand side of the road by a monkey puzzle tree.

Tenure: Freehold
Services: All mains services are connected.
Viewing: Strictly by appointment with Carter Jonas

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.
