Description

The Brow is a superb detached family house situated on the outskirts of Bath. Constructed of Bath stone elevations, the house dates back to circa 1840 with later additions. The property has undergone a substantial programme of improvement and refurbishment, both internally and externally. The mellow Bath stone has been cleaned and new sash windows have been installed, and substantial new terracing helps frame this most handsome of houses. Surrounded by pretty gardens, The Brow occupies an elevated position above Batheaston with a southerly aspect and far reaching views over the Avon valley and surrounding hills.

The Brow has well proportioned accommodation arranged over 2 floors with the principal rooms located towards the front of the house, taking advantage of the views. The drawing room is of particular note with a beautiful marble fireplace, elaborate cornicing and 2 bay windows overlooking the garden. In addition there is a separate dining room and a study. The kitchen/breakfast room is superb, with French doors opening onto a large open terrace. The kitchen is very well appointed with a range of high quality units, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. On the first floor are 5 bedrooms, of which 2 are en suite, plus a family shower room. The master bedroom has elegant ceiling moulds and all the bathrooms are very well appointed.

The Brow is surrounded on three sides by well established gardens. There is a superb terrace that runs the width of the house and extends beyond the kitchen to provide an al fresco dining area. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature hedges, shrubs and trees and there is an orchard with an abundance of fruit trees to the east of the property. There is a double garage and extensive driveway parking.
