Williamstowe properties are located in the heart of Combe Down village and were built in 1884 by the widow of Rev. W Williamson to provide comfortable homes for Combe Down's working men. This particular property also houses a small dwelling named 'Cobbler's Cottage' which still to this day has a licence to repair and sell shoes. As you approach the property to your left is a large workshop/studio with windows and doors to three aspects and also providing additional parking. To your right you enter the property into a large courtyard area where the aforementioned 'Cobbler's Cottage' is situated. This now makes for a useful separate area currently used as a washing/utility room. You enter the property via the entrance hallway with stairs to first floor and doors to the kitchen and lounge area. The kitchen opens up into a kitchen dining area with feature fireplace and Aga oven with windows to three aspects and French doors to the rear garden and patio area. Through to the large lounge area with wooden sash windows to the courtyard you will also find a convenient study room to the front of the property. Upstairs on the first floor are four good sized bedrooms with two providing beautiful roof top views of the surrounding village and church spire. Outside there are two areas to the large rear gardens. The area closest to the house provides a patio dining area with decorative lawn. Further on is a larger manicured topiary garden laid to stone chips with decorative low hedgerow and small trees surrounded by wooden picket fencing. This property is in need of some modernisation but offers a highly sought after secluded village location with the benefit of large gardens and additional workspace with mezzanine and parking.


Combe Down's rewarding valley top position provides stunning panoramic views of the city to the north with equally gratifying views of the Cotswold valleys to the south. The surrounding area cultivates ancient woodland which is the home of unique and local flora and fauna. The village itself has a very high sense of community spirit and self sufficiency. With local amenities providing every level of schooling and childcare, doctors surgery, dentists and pharmacies. Within the village there is a highly reputed car garage, award winning delicatessen, art gallery, Bath Bakery, hardware store and Co-op mini-market. Locally a Tesco Express with petrol station and a large Sainsburys supermarket can also be found. The local bus service is in close proximity providing hourly services into the city. For the walkers amongst you the city is a little under 2 miles away and you are also afforded a plethora of countryside walks into an 'area of outstanding natural beauty' minutes from the village itself.
