About this property

  • Darnley House is a handsome, well presented property, being listed Grade II with period features to include high ceilings and original windows.

    The main accommodation is arranged over two floors, featuring an entrance hall with limestone floor, and cloakroom off, and an inner hall with staircase to the first floor and doors to the reception rooms. The drawing room is a beautiful room of generous proportions with windows overlooking the garden, an open fireplace and two sets of double doors to the dining room.

    There is a well fitted kitchen with marble worktops and integrated appliances and a door to a rear porch/boot room with a door to the garden. The dining room overlooks the gardens and is open plan to the kitchen. Off the kitchen is a study/snug with fitted bookshelves, and there is also a utility room on the ground floor.

    The Annexe is a detached single storey building, with a particularly contemporary feel, created in the last few years. The accommodation is especially light with a large roof lantern over the living/kitchen area with its modern units and built in appliances. The living area is L shaped and open plan with bifold doors looking on to the garden. There is also a bedroom and shower room. The annexe has its own central heating system from a gas fired boiler.

    Outside the gardens lie to three sides of the property and are private, attractive and level with areas of lawn interspersed with gravel pathways, mature hedging and deep flower beds bounded by brick walling. There is a greenhouse, summerhouse and various storage sheds. The property is approached off Whitecross Square through double opening electric gates leading to ample parking.

    The property is offered with no onward chain.

I love this house, it's so tucked away you would never know it was there, which gives a great sense of privacy and security. The gardens are also such a surprise, plus the annexe is really stylish. And you can walk to all the Bath Road amenities.
