AGENTS NOTES Ideally located in the very heart of Oldfield Park and offering a wonderful opportunity for upgrading or further expansion. This substantial 1025sqft 1938 built three bedroom two reception mid terrace enjoys a level 45ft x 19ft rear garden, shower rooms on both floors, double glazing, GCH, a large garage & further parking. Offered with no chain and now needing some updating to maximise its potential as a family home. Given its proximity to Moorland Road as well as excellent local schooling, local rail links and city amenities, this property is expected to be extremely popular and thus interested parties are advised to make haste to view via the owners Sole Agents.

Occupying part of the land sold by the Bath Land Co to Perfect Picture Houses Ltd in 1920 (described as "part of The Cherry Orchard") for the construction of the Oldfield Park Picture House - the Picture House was the first in Bath to change over to sound from silent films in June 1929.
Harris Cinemas then sold the land for this terrace to the builder Henry George Peaty (of Mount Rd, Southdown) in 1938 and the first owner (Norah Jesse Ball) moved in to this property in September of that year. At the time, her neighbours would have included Barclays at No28, T Wall & Sons (ice cream manufacturers) at No27 and the wonderfully named Premiere Gloving Company at No32.
By the time the Scala Cinema closed in the 1960's, the owner of this property was Charles Street. Some of our local residents will still remember Gavans confectioners being at No31 at that time, alongside Berkeley ironmongers at No32 and Mrs G.W Copp (fashion consultants) at No30.
