In a winsome 17th century Georgian terrace nestled in a quiet country lane is a romantic little hideaway for 4 (and up to 5 with sofa bed). Picturesque country walks following in the footsteps of Jane Austen offer sweeping views of the city in one direction and a 10-15 minute walk to Bath's city centre (with Bath Spa train station en-route) in the other. From here you could see and enjoy Bath in a whole new light.
This adorable cottage style home is on 4 levels with a cosy living room on the ground floor, a couple of steep winding staircases up to the bedrooms and steps down to the kitchen, and a typical terraced garden, filled with varied planting, slopes down the hill.. Situated in Widcombe on the southern slopes of the city there is plenty to explore, on local footpaths that encircle the city below and in the city itself. The sweet church of St.Thomas a Becket, beautiful Widcombe Manor and the National trust owned Prior Park is close by.
A charming living room with original stone mullioned windows, oak ceiling beam and smooth oak floors has two sofas either side of a little coal effect, gas burning stove. A traditional button backed sofa seats 2 and a small sofa-bed opposite seats 2-3. Large shelved alcoves hold a small TV, DVD and i-pod player/radio, along with a generous pile of books, games, music CD's and films.
Steps lead down to a sociable and sunny traditional style cream fitted kitchen with black granite tops and oak flooring. Added sparkle comes from mosaic mirrored tiling. The kitchen has a small oven/grill and a second larger oven, a microwave, a large fridge and separate freezer, a small dishwasher, and a washing machine. A large oak and iron dining table to seat 6 is opposite French doors leading into the garden.
Outside, a small sun terrace has 4 iron chairs and a table for 4. There are lovely views of Lyncombe Hill and pretty terraced gardens either side. Steps lead down through shrubs and trees to another small seating area with 2 chairs and side table. At the end of the path is a small shaded bench.
On a half-landing between the Living room and kitchen is a pretty period style shower room with a large tiled shower, hand-basin with storage under and mirrored cabinet over and a WC.
Steep winding stairs lead to the bedrooms on the first and second floors. The first elegant double bedroom has windows to the front and back with working cream shutters, a sweet 4'7''double bed, decorative fireplace, fitted wardrobe and a dainty chest of drawers. This level also has a small period style shower room with shower, hand-basin with storage and WC.
Another swirl of steps brings you into a delightful twin room with two single brass beds, chest of drawers, fitted wardrobe and pretty shuttered windows with lush views of the hills, bath stone houses, mature trees and a tumble of surrounding gardens.
