About this property

  • Cedarwood is a magnificent contemporary house, recently completed by acclaimed local developers to an exceptionally high standard and specification. Constructed of Bath stone elevations under a tiled roof, Cedarwood has very well proportioned accommodation arranged over four floors. The property has been constructed with considerable style and attention to detail, with all aspects of modern living having been given full consideration. High quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings sit well alongside traditional materials and state of the art technology.

    Cedarwood is approached via a quiet no-through lane in the heart of Lansdown, a premier location on the northern slopes of the World Heritage City of Bath. There is a resin bond driveway to the front of the property that provides access to the house, four parking spaces and a car dock that lowers into an integral garage.

    Upon entering there is a large reception hall with bespoke hanging cupboard complete with shoe storage. The stunning proportions, space and light enjoyed by the whole house are immediately apparent. The striking wrought-iron staircase with oak treads is an impressive feature. The reception hall opens into a sitting room to the rear of the house. In addition there is a drinks serving facility with wine fridge, integral sink unit and Quooker tap.

    Also on the ground floor is a study / snug sitting room, cloakroom with WC and a ground floor bedroom suite with en suite shower room. The ground floor benefits from under floor heating and the main rooms have been finished with engineered oak floors.

    Of particular note is the stunning kitchen/dining/family room. The proportions are breath-taking in this magnificent open-plan space. There is a Smallbone kitchen, fitted with a range of bespoke units (including pantry cupboard) and a large island unit that incorporates high end appliances. These include Miele combined microwave ovens, separate main oven, warming drawer, induction hob and dishwasher. There is an American-style Fisher & Paykel integrated Fridge & Freezer, including filtered cool water dispenser and Ice Maker facility. The work surfaces are high-end Quartz. The island unit is finished with a part-Quartz and part-oak work surfaces that also combine to provide a breakfast bar and main sink unit with Quooker tap. Steps lead up into the dining/sitting area that is finished with oak floors and measures approx. 887 square feet. There is a gas living flame wood burning stove controlled by a remote. There are large sliding doors that provide access on to a superb deck area with glass balustrade. Also on the ground floor is a media room fitted with large flat screen TV, surround speakers and bespoke built-in furniture. There is a fully fitted laundry room and separate pantry room. Each is fitted with storage cabinets and finished with quartz stone work surfaces. The pantry has an additional larder fridge, oven and dishwasher and the laundry is well appointed, with a fitted tumble dryer and separate washing machine.

    There is also a further W.C and plant room / storage space, as well as access to the integral garage. The garage is heated and - like the house - benefits from CCTV and has a state of the art docking system and electric car charging point.

    On the first floor is luxurious principal bedroom suite that incorporates a dressing room with bespoke furniture and an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms at first floor level, one en suite and a family bathroom. On the second floor is a fifth bedroom also with en suite facilities, and a plant room / boiler room completes the accommodation. All of the bath / shower rooms have been fitted with Villeroy and Boch furnishings and vanity units. Each has heated mirrors, electric underfloor heating and the tiles are all from Mandarin Stone, Bath.

    OUTSIDE
    From the rear of the house the majority of the rooms enjoy a south-facing aspect and good views. Outside to the rear and beyond the larger terrace are substantial gardens that are in the main laid to lawn. There are terraces to one side of the house providing a further secluded seating area.
