Quite possibly the oldest house in Combe Down, as recorded on a map surveyed by Thomas Thorpe in 1742*. Recently and lovingly refurbished it still retains many of its redeeming period features.
You enter the unfurnished property through a small courtyard garden to the front and side of the property. Inside the entrance porch you will find access to the downstairs cloakroom and utility area.
Opening the original wooden framed door you enter into the kitchen dining area which is picture perfect cottage living. Limestone flooring, with underfloor heating, extends throughout and into the adjoining living room. You immediately notice the original large Inglenook fireplace which contains a working log burner and the exposed stone surrounding walls. This kitchen has a real homely feel to it and this is carried through to the lounge which also provides another Inglenook fireplace with gas burner. Exposed wooden beams cross the ceiling throughout this open plan living area with Georgian sash windows to the front aspect.
Carpeted stairs wind round and upwards to the first floor taking you past exposed stone walls and small window to the rear. The landing provides access to the master bedroom an family bathroom. The wooden floored double bedroom has built in units which houses a tasteful wash basin. An exposed stone wall houses a period open fireplace. The family bathroom provides glass panelled shower cubicle with power shower, sink, w.c. and a glorious roll top bath.
From the landing the stairs take you past another small original cottage window, with views to the north of Bath, up to the second floor. Here you find a good size wooden floored room which could be used as a bedroom, play room or study area. Through this room you enter bedroom two which is another good size double with easterly facing dormer window to the front aspect. Exposed wooden beams to the ceiling and carpeted throughout.
Externally there are two small courtyard areas to the front and side aspects and these are currently stone chipped and home to potted plants and a wood store. There is on-street parking immediately outside of the property.
