Holcombe Lodge is a house full of character in which the present owners have retained a number of period features such as shutters in all reception rooms, panelled doors, dado and picture rails and several cast iron fireplaces. Further modernisation and decorative updating is required, which enables the next owners to put their own ‘stamp’ on this fine, family home.
The entrance hall runs the depth of the building, with doors to the reception rooms, kitchen, cloakroom and garden. The drawing and dining rooms overlook the gardens and both feature full height sash windows. The drawing room’s open stone fireplace, with wood and natural wood surround, supplements the house’s gas-fired central heating system. This room’s deep splay bay is a particularly attractive feature. The sitting room has, as the children have grown up, served as a playroom and then later as a games room.
As often happens, the good-sized kitchen is the heart of the house. The latest upgrading provides a range of cream base and wall units, with a Belfast sink, integral dishwasher and fridge/freezer, and high-quality beech worktops. The large stone fireplace, formerly housing a kitchen range, lends itself to the installation of an AGA/Rayburn if required. The quarry tiled floor continues, via a second kitchen door, into the service/utility area of the house, Here is a hallway with doors to the utility room, a walk-in larder, the second staircase, a shower room, a workroom which has a door to the garden and a second entrance door from the garage/parking area.
Upstairs, the staircases are at either end of a long landing, which has doors to the 5 double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate WC. Three bedrooms overlook the garden and open countryside beyond, including the large master bedroom where an archway opens to an en-suite bathroom with a panelled bath and two matching hand basins. The family bathroom has the benefit of an airing cupboard and large linen cupboard.
Externally, there is a double garage and off street parking at the side of the house and this area is made secure by large wrought iron gates. The landscaped garden is all to the rear of the house. It is fully screened by hedges and a number of mature trees, including a majestic oak and walnut, hazel, rowan and holly. A gravelled terrace runs the length of the house and the gardens comprise two flat lawned areas with flower beds and structures to support the collection of climbing roses and clematis. The lower garden has two ponds created to attract wildlife. The upper garden has a small ornamental pond within a grassed patio area used for al fresco dining.
Holcombe Lodge is near the end of a no through road that terminates with a footpath leading to the Kennet and Avon Canal. Bathampton is a very popular village just 2 miles from Bath City centre.
