Madron is located on Ostlings Lane, in an elevated plot commanding stunning panoramic views across the valley to Solsbury Hill. Ostlings Lane is situated just below Church Street, in the heart of the pretty and well regarded village of Bathford. This thriving village is conveniently located about 3.5 miles to the east of the City of Bath and provides excellent local amenities including a shop, primary school, Church, regular bus services, village hall, cricket and rugby teams and pub. Both Kingsdown and Cumberwell Park (36 holes) golf clubs are a short drive away. There are lovely countryside walks in the area and Kingsdown Golf Club is about 2 miles further up the hill. Bathford is well situated for the M4 motorway, particularly for commuters to Swindon, Chippenham and Bristol, and both Bath and Chippenham provide main line railway stations to London.
Madron was built in the 1980's by the well regarded Frayling Builders. The current owners have been there since new and have sympathetically improved and in some parts extended the property. Madron has the added benefit of double glazing, hardwood window and door frames, relatively new boiler and hot water cylinder (about 6 years old) and an outbuilding providing invaluable space for garaging and a studio room, office or workshop. The property has well balanced and versatile accommodation arranged over two floors and there is also the possibility of building a two storey extension, creating an extra reception room as well as an additional bedroom (subject to the necessary consents being obtained). As an added benefit, Madron's principal rooms are all situated on the west side of the property, meaning that the stunning views can be enjoyed from almost any room.
On entering the property you are greeted by a matted inner lobby which leads through to spacious entrance hall with useful storage cupboard. There is a triple aspect drawing room with attractive window seats and an array of built-in storage cupboards, as well as a wonderful Bath stone surround fireplace with coal effect gas fire inset, providing a lovely warmth in the winter months. Of particular note is an oval shaped feature window commanding the most stunning views over the garden and across the valley to Solsbury Hill. Doors off both the hall and drawing room lead through to a spacious dining room with French doors leading out to a terrace.
The kitchen was replaced approximately a decade ago and has a range of base and wall units with integral appliances. There is space for a breakfast table and a pleasant outlook can be enjoyed over the garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room, which has space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and houses the boiler. There is access from here to the side of the property. The conservatory, which benefits from under floor heating, provides an exceptional space to entertain and enjoy the garden and views, while still being linked to the kitchen. Furthermore, the ground floor has a useful study area and cloakroom with space for coats and shoes.
On the first floor there is a spacious landing with storage cupboard and double size airing cupboard. The double aspect master bedroom again enjoys wonderful views and has built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, two of which have built-in storage cupboards. The family bathroom comprises bath with shower over, wc and basin with cupboard underneath.
The gardens of Madron, extending to approximately an acre, are of particular note and have a well balanced array of both hard and soft landscaping. The current owner has spent considerable time landscaping and making the gardens of Madron a truly wonderful place in which to relax. There are a variety of terraced areas, ideal for outside dining and entertaining, as well as interspersed mature borders, trees and shrubs, a pond and various lawned areas. There is a useful greenhouse and sizeable shed, both with power.
There is a large gravelled driveway and parking area next to the house providing parking for a dozen cars, as well as a substantial outbuilding comprising a generous double garage and an invaluable studio room adjacent.
All mains services connected. Gas fired central heating.
