Overview

2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom properties

Famed for its elegant Georgian architecture and historic Roman Baths, the picture-perfect city of Bath is one of the most beautiful places to live in the UK. It is also the only destination to in the country to be designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO and has been listed as a ‘cultural site’ with outstanding universal value and cultural significance since the late 1980’s.


With its elegant Georgian terraces and sweeping crescents, Bath is home to around 5,000 listed buildings and countless historic landmarks.

It is also home to Ensleigh, a stunning new development from Bloor Homes that includes a superb choice of two, three, four and five bedroom homes. Situated in a highly sought-after location just two miles north of the bustling city centre, Ensleigh has been sensitively designed to complement and blend in with Bath’s distinctive architecture and to reflect the charm and character of the surrounding open countryside. 

There are play areas where children can play safely and happily for instance; natural open spaces where families can relax or walk; and allotments for those who would like to get back to nature. There is also an on-site shop and a new primary school so every convenience will be right on your doorstep when you move to Ensleigh.


And, if you reserve a new home here in the early stages of construction, you will have the added benefit of being able to choose the final finishing touches to your new home such as the kitchen, bathroom and en-suite facilities.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Bath has been attracting people since Roman times and today its warm, honey coloured streets bustle with life and entertainment. There’s a thriving Festival scene here, including the International Music Festival, Bath Film and Literature Festivals plus the popular Great Bath Feast Festival where local chefs showcase the very best of the area’s local produce.

The Theatre Royal is one of the oldest working theatres in Britain. Built in 1805, it was also the first ‘Theatre Royal’ to be built outside London.

Families of all ages will never be short of anything to do in Bath as there are no less than 17 art galleries and museums, numerous theatres including ‘The Egg’ which was built specially to entertain young people, and a host of award-winning restaurants.

The city has an enviable reputation as a fabulous shopping destination too. Head over to Milsom Place at the heart of the fashionable Milsom Quarter, for instance, and you’ll find a tempting array of sophisticated shops, boutiques and restaurants sitting alongside independent high street stores such a Hobbs and Cath Kidston.

You can even discover Bath as the Victorians would have done, by hiring a horse drawn carriage, to take you via Royal Crescent, Royal Victoria Park, the Circus, Queen Square and Great Pulteney Street.

Sports lovers are also well-catered for as Bath Racecourse, Bath Rugby Club, the Sports and Leisure Club and Landsdown Tennis and Squash Club are all less than ten minutes’ drive away.



From cosy pubs and stylish bars, to traditional cafes and Michelin-starred restaurants – Bath and the surrounding area really does have it all when it comes to wining and dining.

Step back in time at Bea's charming Vintage Tea Rooms, or try a famous Bath Bun at the Bath Bun Tea Shoppe; discover local cheddar cheese at the Fine Cheese Company and enjoy a pint of authentic Somerset cider or ale at one of Bath’s many welcoming pubs.

There are numerous independent restaurants and delis to explore as well as the popular Saturday Farmer’s Market – the very first of its kind to be set up in the UK back in 1987. 

October is the key date in the keen foodie's diary, however, as this is when the month-long Great Bath Feast comes to town. Celebrating the best of the city’s local eateries and producers, the Festival features unique activities, celebrity appearances cookery demonstrations, talks, book signings, workshops and, of course, a dazzling array of gourmet food.

For a real treat, why not visit one of the area’s three Michelin-starred restaurants? Choose from The Bath Priory Hotel, The Park Restaurant at Lucknam Park or The Bybrook at the Manor House Hotel.

Education

Ensleigh’s convenient location on the peaceful northern outskirts of Bath makes this an ideal place for families of all ages to live and learn. There’s an excellent choice of schools, together with a purpose-built new primary school on your very own doorstep.  

Other sought after primary schools include St Stephen’s and St Saviour’s, both rated rated ‘good’ by Ofsted.

Among the nearest secondary schools, St Mark’s is also rated as ‘good, with high quality teaching’; Hayesfield (Girls only) 'rated good with some outstanding features'; and, twenty minutes drive away, St Gregory’s Roman Catholic School (mixed) is rated as 'outstanding'.

The recent merger of the City of Bath College and Norton Radstock College to form the new Bath College has been designed to give older students more choice, greater opportunities and a wider range of facilities. And, in the Independent sector there are a number of highly regarded schools including Bath Royal High School for Girls and King Edward’s.

Bath Spa University and the University of Bath are also both within easy commuting distance.

About Developer

Building for the Future. That’s the Bloor Difference.

Founded over 45 years ago, Bloor is today one of the largest privately owned house building groups in the UK, building around 3,000 superior homes each year, ranging from 1 bedroom apartments to 7 bedroom luxury detached properties.

Bloor Homes design and build homes of distinction tailored to the needs of modern life. You only need look at a Bloor Home to realise that not all new homes are the same. But the true difference that sets Bloor Homes apart from the crowd is deeper than the varied architectural styles that first catch the eye.

Our approach to the design of every new location goes far beyond the provision of superior homes for today’s way of living. We make every effort to conserve the natural balance of each location including the conservation of wildlife and the preservation of natural features – a policy which has been praised by several planning departments. And you can be sure that the very latest building techniques and specifications will be incorporated as standard – from the latest heating systems and excellent wall and loft insulation, to double glazed windows and doors that help generate over 60 per cent less CO2 emissions than older homes and make a new Bloor home up to six times more energy efficient.

Our architects create interesting, imaginative layouts that compliment the range of properties. Whichever home you choose, you will find all rooms, together with their high specification, provide not only maximum comfort, but greater freedom of movement. Reserve a Bloor Home in the early stages of construction and you will have the freedom of choice too, to choose from our range of finishes for the kitchen, bathrooms and en-suite facilities.

We keep an eye on the future, combining traditional building materials and using modern methods to reduce maintenance. With every Bloor Home comes the peace of mind that your needs and questions will always be answered, from your first visit to the day you move in to your new home.
