Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A modern detached family home with 1 bedroom annexe situated on Bath's popular northern slopes with exceptional panoramic country views.


Occupying one of Lansdown's premium positions, Arisaig is poised between town and country. It has far-reaching views over Charlcombe Valley towards Solsbury Hill and offers immediate access into the heart of Bath. Bath is one of only three UK World Heritage Cities and enjoys international acclaim for its fine classical architecture and Roman heritage. The city offers a wide variety of restaurants and shops and is home to an international music festival each spring. The Theatre Royal has an eclectic programme of events throughout the year. There are also excellent schools nearby to include St. Stephens Primary School, Kingswood School and The Royal High School. Bath also has excellent sporting facilities with Lansdown Racecourse only a short drive to the north and premier division rugby at 'The Rec' in the city centre. Lansdown Golf Club and Tennis/Squash Clubs are both nearby.

Lansdown is well situated for commuting. The M4 (Junction 18) is 9 miles north, with both the M5 (for the Midlands) and the M32 (for the south and west) easily accessed. Bristol is around 12 miles west. London is approximately 100 miles from this junction with access into Heathrow. Bath Spa station has a mainline link to London Paddington from 80 minutes. Bristol International Airport, offering an increasing range of domestic and international routes, is about 30 miles to the west.


Approached off a long driveway, Arisaig is a modern detached family home recently updated and extended to offer 3,469 sq ft of versatile and spacious accommodation, arranged between a 4 bedroom main home and adjoining 1 bedroom self-contained annexe. This affords a degree of flexibility as the interconnecting doors allow the property to work as one or two completely separate homes. There is also the possibility (subject to the necessary permissions) to redesign the home to take advantage of its spectacular views over the Charlcombe Valley towards Solsbury Hill and Wiltshire in the distance.

The current accommodation consists of a large welcoming entrance hall leading to a kitchen/dining space, which also works well as a family room. This is fitted out with a contemporary kitchen and includes features such as a wood burner and sliding doors leading out to the rear terrace. There is also a sitting room with open views, a family room, a utility and a cloakroom.

To the first floor is a master bedroom with dressing room that in turn leads to an en-suite bathroom, as well as a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

The annexe benefits from its own entrance hall located on the side of the house and under floor heating. There is a sitting room with extensive views, dining area, comprehensively fitted kitchen, bedroom, shower room, separate cloakroom and access to a cellar (with restricted head height). The doorway between the hallway and the kitchen/diner of the main home offers a useful link between the two parts of the property.

Arisaig is approached via a long driveway which leads into the gardens via a five bar wooden gate. The whole amounts to just over one third of an acre and is arranged predominantly to lawn. There is a gravel parking area to the front of the property, which leads to two single garages with up and over doors. Currently the main home and annexe each have a designated rear garden complete with panoramic country views, separated by a contemporary wooden fence with interconnecting gate. There are a number of mature trees offering a degree of privacy, which open up to the rear revealing a spectacular view over the neighbouring field and across Bath towards Solsbury Hill and the hills of Wiltshire in the distance. The views are something quite special and unique, further enhancing the home and its long-term potential.

Square Footage: 3,469 sq ft
