Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property is approached via secure electrically operated gates which lead into a sweeping driveway, opening onto a generous parking and turning area which in turn leads to a double integrated garage. Steps lead down from the south facing balcony to a large paved terrace which in turn overlooks a generous secluded garden with a lovely summer house and an area plumbed for the installation of a hot tub.

The developer/present owner designed and constructed the house boasting accommodation in excess of 6500 square feet. He cleverly combined the knowledge of two architectural companies to create the ultimate property that focused on modern living, whilst not losing sight of a practical family home. He has incorporated many notable features to include an indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, a virtual cinema room, a bar and many more.

The vision was to have all these facilities within the building separated from the main living area, this was successfully achieved with the lower ground floor creating an extensive leisure and entertainment suite which has its own heating and consumer unit which functions separately from the main house.

The property is built in a sleek modern design with a green roof (Sedum) which facilitates excellent pluvial water disbursement, this was designed to reduce the impact on such a large building together with the many benefits of attracting wildlife, whilst being virtually maintenance free.

All the Bath stone within the construction of Alexander House was taken from an existing building which was demolished on the site, this was hand crafted by a local stone mason and used in within the build and is visible from the outside, with some of the stone utilised within the kitchen and drawing room internally.

Externally, the gardens have been cleverly and thoughtfully designed with a large south facing private patio and complimented by a generous first floor balcony leading of the kitchen and drawing room.


Situation
Alexander House is set in a surprising quiet location to the rear of Percy Place, a Grade II listed rank of Georgian properties. It was designed and constructed as part of a small development of three new build properties and the conversion of a coach house. Alexander House, the largest of all three, is set in magnificent private grounds adjacent to open meadow land.

The nearby village centre of Larkhall also provides a number of bespoke and individual amenities, and the property is well placed for easy access to primary and secondary schools.

The city centre of Bath is within a level walk and offers a wonderful array of chain and independent shopping, a fine selection of restaurants, cafes and wine bars and many well respected cultural activities.

Communications include a fast direct line to London Paddington, Bristol and South
Wales from Bath Spa Railway Station. The M4 motorway is approximately 12 miles to the north, and Bristol Airport is 18 miles to the west.
