Full description

A fine detached house standing in stunning gardens in one of Bath's most desirable residential areas

Location

Homefield is situated in an extremely convenient position on the south eastern side of the city of Bath on a quiet residential road which runs between Bathwick Hill and Widcombe Hill. Bathwick Hill itself offers local amenities and is also within a mile of Bath city centre as well as the University of Bath with its excellent sports complex. There is a frequent bus service into Bath and the mainline railway station is just over a mile away.

Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage and enjoys a wealth of cultural, business and recreational facilities. Communication links are excellent with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approx 85 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 minutes). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 10 miles north of the city centre.

Description

Homefield is a unique detached home of considerable style and character in a superb location on the edge of the city above Widcombe. The house has stone elevations under a tiled roof, and is approached through a set of automated wrought iron gates. The sweeping driveway at the front of the property offers ample parking for many cars. In addition to this a detached garage lies to the side of the property.

The spacious and well-presented accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and offers attractive internal detailing such as coved ceiling cornices and wonderful fire surrounds and mantelpieces. Homefield's gardens are a significant feature, lying to the front and rear of the house. Internally, the accommodation flows beautifully around the reception hall on the ground floor and the spacious landings on the first and second floors. Of particular note is the fine, hardwood conservatory which was an addition to the house in 1995, leading from the main sitting room and also from the master bedroom suite where glass doors lead through a covered balcony to an ornate wrought iron spiral staircase. There is an attractive terracotta and slate tiled floor, and French doors lead to the garden.

Also on the ground floor is a sitting room, dining room and music room. The kitchen has been thoughtfully planned and has exceptional bespoke, hand-built units with decorative inlay detail and integrated appliances. A pair of doors separate the kitchen from the breakfast room offering separate space if desired, but otherwise the two rooms work perfectly together and form a large open area ideal for informal entertaining.

The first and second floors provide six large double bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is extremely spacious and has wonderful views over the gardens, an exceptional en-suite bathroom and a dressingroom providing extensive storage, with hanging rails and cupboards. There are two more double bedrooms on the first floor (one with an en suite bathroom) and a family bathroom. The bedrooms on the second floor are set into the roof and as a result have high, pitched ceilings and exposed timber beams. There are fine city views from the rear windows.

The grounds are private, secluded and secure. Access to the property is through the gates at the front of the house or a wooden door set into the boundary wall, which runs along one side of the garden.

The house is approached through wrought iron gates and over a brick paved driveway which sweeps around to the front of the house. From the drive in front of the house, steps lead to an area of level lawn surrounded by mature trees. There is access to the rear garden from either side of the house; to one side a path leads through a beech and holly hedge and to the other a paved path leads around to the terrace. The rear garden is west-facing and predominantly laid to lawn, and can be approached either from the conservatory or the side door which leads from the breakfast room. These doors give access to a wide flagstone terrace which runs along the entirety of the rear of the house and provides the perfect setting for outside dining and entertaining.

From the terrace, a set of stone steps lead down to the rest of the lawned garden and a meandering path leads down to a secluded sun terrace. There are a number of specimen trees and a variety of established flower and shrub borders.

Square Footage: 4,090 sq ft

Directions

From the Holburne Museum at the end of Great Pulteney Street proceed south on the A36 along Pulteney Road. Just before Widcombe Parade and Prior Park Road, turn left up Widcombe Hill. When you reach the top of the hill and the road starts to level out, turn left into Copseland. Homefield is the first house on the left - although not clearly visible from the road you will see the wrought iron gates and entrance to the garage which is slightly set back from the road.
