This 19th century former quarryman's cottage is situated in the older part of Combe Down village. Originally a private carriage way Gladstone road was laid out in the 1830's by Henry Fowler Cotterell, a leading Bath land surveyor who had property interests in the area. Other properties in the road are surveyed on the Tithe map of 1851 and still stand today.
Modern day Gladstone road is a quiet, no through road with an eclectic mixture of past and present housing with the 19th century cottages, mixing with larger detached residences and more modern day sympathetic terraced homes and bungalows.
This particular cottage sits on a nice sized plot side by side with its neighbouring cottage. Recently refurbished throughout it still retains many period finishes internally and has also recently been extended to provide additional living space. The vendor's meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout and the end result is a quaint archetypal Combe Down cottage. The living accommodation to the ground floor comprises lounge with 9-pane sash windows to the front aspect and modern open-plan kitchen/dining room with period wooden framed glazed French doors onto a lovely outdoor seating area. You will also find a very useful downstairs WC/potential utility room. To the first floor you have three bedrooms and family bathroom. Externally a part stone walled pretty rear garden with outdoor seating area and space to the rear which could house a workshop or home office space. To the front of the property the stone chipped driveway provides parking for up to three vehicles.
