Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fine and imposing detached Grade II listed Georgian villa with a good size level garden and off road parking, set within one of Bath's most prominent residential locations affording a wonderful aspect to the rear over National Trust land.

Location

Bathwick Hill is one of the most prominent residential areas within the City of Bath. Willow House is located on the western side of the hill, benefiting from a fine aspect to the rear over open National Trust farmland. Beyond are the hills surrounding Bath, the outlook being towards Prior Park and Widcombe, with the City of Bristol in the distance.

The property is very conveniently placed for easy access to various nearby schools which include King Edwards, Prior Park and Monkton Combe. Also nearby is Bath University and Wessex Water Headquarters.

The city centre of Bath, within easy walking distance, provides a full range of retail outlets together with many amenities including an excellent selection of restaurants, Bath Sports Centre, the Theatre Royal and the Thermae Spa. Complementing this is the open countryside to the rear with many beautiful walks. This, contrasting with the closeness of the city centre is, in our opinion, one of the major attractions to this property.

Communication links are excellent with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approx 85 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 minutes). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 10 miles north.

Description

Willow House is a fine and imposing Grade II Listed Georgian detached villa built amongst a sequence of villas designed by John Pinch and Son. Located in a sought after position on the lower slopes of Bathwick Hill, the house enjoys a wonderful vista over National Trust land to the rear. Constructed of limestone ashlar elevations under a double pitched slate mansard roof the property dates back to about 1828. The property has a striking and impressive facade and has been much enhanced by the current owners with style and attention to detail.

Upon entering, there is a splendid reception hall which leads to three well proportioned reception rooms, the rear two affording a wonderful aspect to the rear over the gardens and adjacent National Trust land. The reception rooms are light and airy and have characteristic cornicing whilst the full height windows to the rear are framed by sunlight boxes. There is a contemporary cloakroom and well appointed utility room on the ground floor. Classic architectural features include shutters, fireplaces, cornicing and a balcony which all sit well alongside contemporary fixtures and furnishings.

On the first floor level, and of particular note, is the generous master bedroom which has glazed doors leading on to the iron canopied veranda overlooking the garden. There is an elegant and spacious contemporary bathroom with a freestanding bath and separate walk in shower, along with dual hand basins and feature fireplace. There is further bedroom and a shower room on the first floor whilst upstairs on the second floor there are three further bedrooms and another generously proportioned bathroom. At garden level there is a superbly appointed kitchen/breakfast room together with adjacent family room. Also at garden level is a boiler room and front vaults within which there is a fresh water storage tank providing water for the central heating and water system. From the kitchen there is direct access onto a terrace, which is ideal for al fresco dining, from which steps lead up onto the good size rear garden. This is mainly laid to lawn with borders stocked with mature shrubs and plants and has a gate opening onto National Trust land.
