5 bedroom detached house for saleBathwick Hill, Bath
This property represents a remarkable opportunity to purchase a new, contemporary home in one of Britain’s most historic cities. The 5 bedroom house is being offered in shell form (i.e. with no internal fixtures or fittings), allowing the new owners to create their own interior. If preferred, however, the current owners can complete the fit out for an agreed additional cost. External works are due to be completed in February 2017.
The house can be found in a tranquil setting next to gardens and open fields down a private road in the established residential area of Bathwick Hill. It is very rare to find a contemporary house in this location, which is generally considered to be one of the best in Bath. There are far reaching views from the site, and from the first floor of the house, across the city and to the surrounding countryside.
Accommodation on the ground floor includes an open plan kitchen / living / dining room with full height glazed doors onto the garden. There is also a guest bedroom, a study, shower room, hallway and utility room on this floor. On the first floor are four further bedrooms (the master bedroom having an en suite shower room and dressing area) as well as a family bathroom and shower room. Given the opportunity to purchase this property pre-completion the arrangement of the accommodation could easily be altered from the above description.
Gardens surround the house and there is a also roof terrace and balcony. There is parking space for approximately three cars.
