Full description

If the phrase 'location, location, location' means anything then this property has it in spades. Situated only 2 miles from the centre of Bath, Grange Farm's farmhouse nestles in a hollow protected from the north winds whilst surrounded by 10 acres of its own fields. Sited on the south facing side of the Charlcombe Valley it has views to the south and west over the valley and to the east with the Avon and Bathampton in the distance.

A traditional stone house built in the late 1800s it was part of a working farm until 1966 when it was bought by the current owner's family. The house has been improved, extended and renovated throughout its life, including a recently completed major upgrade and offers homely, cosy living space with plenty of windows. A newly converted cowshed offers supplementary accommodation which gives a prospective purchaser a lot of flexibility to use the space; a home office, a granny flat or perhaps even as Bed & Breakfast let. But the opportunities do not end there as there are several outbuildings suitable, subject to planning permission, for conversion.

"Given how close we are to the centre of Bath, our visitors often remark on how quiet it is here," says the current owner. "As you would expect with being in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whichever window you look out of there is greenery virtually as far as the eye can see. The garden itself is perfect for a family with plenty of grass, a pond, springs and plenty of trees for children to climb. Oh, and deer and pheasants passing through!"

Despite its tranquil location this property has easy access to shops, amenities and excellent transport links. It is close to some of the best schools in the area, Royal High (1 mile), and Kingswood (1.1 miles) and St Stephen's School are only 1.2 miles away. The excitement and hubbub of the town is right on the doorstep, with restaurants and bars, or concerts in the evening. There is always something happening in Bath, be it a comedy festival, a music festival, a food festival, or pre West End show at the Georgian theatre. The property is within easy reach of extensive shopping and local amenities. The closest train station is Bath Spa, 2.5 miles away, offering easy access to wide rail networks to London and beyond. London and Bristol are both accessible by car via the M4 motorway and Bristol Airport is 21 miles away.
