Property Description

Key features


Full description

A fantastic opportunity to acquire a spacious two-bedroom flat in sought-after Batheaston. In need of modernisation, this apartment has the potential to be a fantastic home close to Bath and with views of Solsbury Hill.

This property is in need of modernisation throughout, but offers a substantial opportunity to investors or first time buyers.

Elmhurst Estate in Batheaston offers a small-village community feel situated at the foot of the commanding Solsbury Hill, yet within easy reach of Bath. With excellent public transport links to all local towns, the M4 and the Historic City of Bath, this spacious ground floor apartment offers huge potential and is ideal for an investment buyer.

Heading towards the apartment from the road, a small pathway with flowerbeds to either side brings you around the side of the property to the front door. Upon entry, via a communal hall (shared between two flats), the reception area of this apartment offers a cloak room area and access to all rooms via the hallway. Immediately to the left on the hallway is an extremely spacious cupboard, large enough to act as a utility room, pantry or simply as additional storage.

At the end of the hallway, a spacious lounge with large UPVC windows offers relaxed living, with access to the outdoor space via double doors. This room has traditional picture rails and an electric fireplace.

Stepping outside to the rear, the surrounding gardens are divided between the ground and the first floor flats. This apartment benefits from a large private patio for enjoying summer dining, as well as a large lawned area, both of which have impressive views of Solsbury Hill.

The kitchen has fitted wall and base units with spaces available for white goods, a breakfast bar for dining and a newly refitted electric hob and an oven below. There is also a wall-mounted heater in the kitchen and the boiler located in the kitchen.

Both bedrooms are large double sized rooms that have extended countryside views, particularly the second bedroom which enjoys the best of the views over Solsbury Hill. The master bedroom benefits from a fireplace and built in wardrobes within the chimney recesses.

Both bedrooms have large windows which let in lots of natural light, and both contain wall-mounted heating units.

Just down the hall, the shower room, which consists of a toilet, sink and accessible shower is of a good size but requires updating.

Parking is unrestricted and on street.
