Property description

A charming quintessential Combe Down quarryman's cottage set in a peaceful cul-de-sac in the heart of the village. Providing two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen diner, lounge and a fantastic garden room with log burner. Ideal location for all local amenities and bus route to the city and with no onward chain.

This charming former quarryman's cottage is likely to have been built pre-1850 and is sited at what would have been the entrance to the quarry known as Davidge's Bottom, to the end of Rock Lane. It sits in the middle of a quaint row of four terrace cottages. You enter through a wrought iron gate and across the very well tended front garden to the entrance porch. Once inside the porch provides storage space for coats and shoes. Through the front door you enter the lounge and immediately notice the very homely feature log burner fireplace. The south westerly aspect of the cottage makes this a very light room with a window to the front aspect letting the natural light in. On through to the kitchen diner which provides space for a family dining table and is fitted with modern floor and wall units. A stable style back door leads out to the rear garden. Stairs by the front door lead up to the first floor landing and access to both bedrooms and bathroom, with its roll top bath. Outside the rear garden is laid with stone chips and a stone path. It also includes a small pond and provides access to a storage shed with WC and a delightful garden room. The cosy garden room could be used as a chill out room, home office or a guest room as it provides power, light and has its own log burner.

This property is located on the southern slopes of the city of Bath in the highly desired village of Combe Down. 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, dentists, pharmacies and 'outstanding' surgery. Combe Down Surgery has been rated as outstanding in the latest Care Quality Commission (cqc) inspection, the only surgery in Bath to have this rating. Also within the village there is a highly reputed car garage, award winning delicatessen, hair salon, beauty therapist, 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. Every level of schooling can be found in the local vicinity with three nurseries, Academy primary school, Ralph Allen senior school and three independent schools in Prior Park, Monkton Combe and Paragon.
