About this property

  • Formerly the coach house to the adjacent property and dating back to Georgian times, Stable Cottage has been the subject of a tasteful and dramatic transformation over the last 12 years. The quality of fittings, workmanship and attention to detail is exemplary with the clever and well-planned layout being of particular note in this quiet, gem of a house.

    The L-shaped design of the cottage and its south and westerly aspects means that the sun is enjoyed throughout the day and the property is warm and light.

    The property is entered through an entrance porch with oak flooring which leads through to the large main reception hall. The kitchen/dining room has been recently refurbished to a very high standard with a bespoke base and wall units, high-end appliances and a waterfall island, complemented by a beautiful parque oak floor. Bi-fold doors lead out to a sheltered patio and the upper garden. In addition, on the ground floor benefits from a home office or dining room with oriel window, the third, double bedroom/study and a terrific garden room with large doors leading out to a second terrace. On a practical note there is a good-sized utility room and an adjacent WC.

    The first floor offers an impressive, spacious, triple- aspect sitting room overlooking western Bath through a large oriel window. The large master bedroom has French doors leading to its own balcony and an en- suite shower room. There is a further, tasteful double bedroom and a family bathroom. The curved landing is light and provides additional, excellent storage space.

    The cottage also benefits from underfloor heating throughout.

    Outside

    There is a delightful, landscaped garden with pretty ornamental pond and paved sun terrace, all taking full advantage of the southerly and westerly aspects. There is also a kitchen garden/ vegetable patch. Approached via electric double gates, a gravelled driveway providing ample parking leads to a block paved area in the upper garden.

This is the perfect house for a downsizer being tucked away behind gates and of a very manageable size.

Local information

  • Set on the edge of Bath, Gloucester Road is a superb location on the outskirts of the city with good access to local amenities just 10 minutes walk away in Larkhall, a wonderful local walk up Solsbury Hill and easy access to the M4.
  • The city centre of Bath provides a full range of retail outlets together with many amenities including an excellent selection of restaurants, Bath Sports Centre, the Theatre Royal and the Thermae Spa.
  • Complementing this is the open countryside to the rear with many beautiful walks. This contrasting with the closeness of the city centre is, in our opinion, one of the major attractions to this property.
  • Communication links are excellent with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time from 85 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time from 15 minutes).
  • Junction 18 of the M4 is approx. 7.5 miles north.

Additional information

  • Directions: From the centre of Bath, head east out of the city along London Road. After passing the Bath Rugby training ground on the right, take a lefthand turn onto Gloucester Road just before Alice Park. Proceed up Gloucester Road, and the entrance to Stable Cottage will be found on your right hand side just before the turning to Bailbrook Lane.
