Rectory Farm House is believed to date from early – mid 17th century and retains some fine period features including 2 large inglenook fireplaces (each with wood burner), stone mullion windows, exposed stone and timber beams as well as wooden panelled doors. On the ground floor there are 2 generous reception rooms and a large family kitchen/breakfast room. A spiral staircase leads to the first floor where there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. On the second floor there are 2 further bedrooms and a shower room making this an ideal space for guests or older children. From the upper floors there are views over neighbouring farm land to the front and of the village to the rear.
Rectory Farm House is situated in the idyllic country village of Englishcombe, surrounded by Duchy of Cornwall farmland, on the southern edge of Bath within easy access of the City Centre (3.5m approx) (the Odd Down Park & Ride is close at hand) and facilities offered on Mount Road, including supermarket, ironmongers, chemist, butchers and doctor’s surgery. There is a brand new Sainsbury’s only a couple of minutes’ drive away at Odd Down. The popular Bear Flat area of Bath is also in striking distance where there are further shopping facilities including a baker, supermarket, delicatessen, florist, post office and pubs. Local schooling includes the nearby popular St Gregory’s Catholic College (for boys and girls), Prior Park College and Beechen Cliff for boys and Hayesfield girls. There are lovely walks nearby and attractive villages such as Newton St Loe with its farm shop and cafe and Combe Hay with the renowned Wheatsheaf Inn.
Further afield from the local community, the Heritage City of Bath is within 10 minutes drive and is serviced by a regular bus service (from the top of Haycombe Lane). Bath offers an array of shopping, sporting and leisure facilities including The Abbey, Bath Rugby Recreational Ground, University Sports Centre, Royal Victoria Park, Thermae Bath Spa and Sydney Botanical Gardens, with a huge range of fine restaurants and galleries. For the commuter, Haycombe Lane gives easy access to Bristol via the A4 and the M4 is made available via the A46 at Junction 18 Tormarton some ten miles north of the City. Bath Spa Station provides regular services for London Paddington (approximately 90 minutes), Bristol Temple Meads and the South West Rail Network.
The tithe barn attached to Rectory Farmhouse was built by Bath Abbey in the early 14th century. It was restored in the 1990s and has been designated as a Grade II* listed building. Rectory Farmhouse itself was built onto the barn in the early to mid 17th century. The Manor of Inglescombe as it was previously called, (now Englishcombe) was acquired by the Duchy of Cornwall in 1421. Along with the Duchy's more recent acquisition of the neighbouring village of Newton St Loe in 1941 they form the Duchy's largest estate outside Dartmoor.
To the front of the property there is a listed pillared gated entrance onto a formal garden that features a central pathway flanked by lawns and flowerbeds.
To the rear is a garden predominantly laid to lawn enclosed by natural hedging and fencing.
Attached to the tithe barn is a large stone single GARAGE with parking in front, and a five bar wooden gate leads to an additional parking area.
We are advised that mains electricity and water are supplied to the property. Oil fired heating.
