There are allotments, a village hall that hosts various clubs and activities, a scout group and a popular annual produce show. The nearby Kennet and Avon canal is a haven for wildlife and provides safe, pleasant level walking or cycle access to Bath city centre (or towards Bradford on Avon) and the Bathampton Toll Bridge provides a short cut to the A4 for onward travel to the M4 and Chippenham.

Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage and enjoys a wealth of cultural, business and recreational facilities.

Description

Holcombe Villa is a period property with later additions situated beside the Kennet and Avon canal within gardens and grounds approaching 6 acres that provide privacy and tranquillity. The current owners have comprehensively refurbished and renovated the accommodation with great attention to detail to create a superb family home with flexible living space.

Holcombe Villa is approached via new electric gates and a private driveway flanked by fields leading to the house. There is ample driveway parking in addition to the double garage. The central part of the property is the original farmhouse believed to date from 1855, onto either side of which were added two large orangeries that provide substantial living space. To the rear were originally agricultural buildings and cow sheds, which have been replaced by bedroom accommodation. This part of the building provides scope for further development potential, subject to the necessary consents, and could be converted into a self contained annexe for a dependent relative or for rental income.

The ground floor accommodation in Holcombe Villa is characterised by light airy living rooms to either side of the main body of the house. These feature a number of tall arched windows and doors that open directly onto the wide terrace running across the front of the property. There is a superb well fitted kitchen/dining room with original beams and a central island with polished marble worktops. A cosy family room has a fireplace with a Jotel wood burning stove.

The first floor bedroom accommodation is extensive within the main original farmhouse. There is a master bedroom with en suite shower room, a second double bedroom and family bathroom and a dressing room. A hallway leads to an additional single storey section that has under floor heating and incorporates three double en suite bedrooms and a very spacious additional double bedroom.

The gardens and grounds are a major feature of Holcombe Villa, providing a tranquil haven and privacy along with two 60ft canal moorings. Running across the front of Holcombe Villa is a wide champagne terrace with steps leading down to the lawn. This is an ideal place for al fresco dining and entertaining, from which there are spectacular country views. There are various seating areas around the garden from which to sit and enjoy the surroundings. With woodland and fields either side of the house and canal frontage there is a great deal of privacy. The level gardens are laid mainly to lawn and with grounds approach approximately 6 acres.

Additional land over the canal is available by separate negotiation.

The double garage offers potential for further development, subject to the necessary consents, and there is ample driveway parking.

Square Footage: 4,202 sq ft
