The project is nearly finished with professional photos to be taken soon. The carpets are about to be laid and final finishing is taking place. I have uploaded some mobile phone photos taken today - the floor in the main sitting room has been mopped to remove dust and was drying - a short video clip of all floors is available by request.
This high-specification eco-house has been carefully designed and will employ a considered palette of wood, stone, and glass, and will incorporate the latest green technologies; using solar panels and an option for battery storage. The property also adopts greywater harvesting technology.
The ground-floor entrance hall is a fantastic introduction to the space, with a double-height atrium and a large skylight. Architectural stairs lead to the first floor or down to the basement. The basement has three defined spaces, a large designated gym area with an abundance of natural light, a significant wine cellar, and an impressive cinema room of over 500 sq.ft. All rooms have high ceilings and underfloor heating.
The ground floor has a useful cloakroom, a large bedroom to the front of the property adjacent to the entrance hall, and a utility room. The focal point is the contemporary south-facing kitchen/dining/living room to the rear of the property. This beautifully light room is the heart of the house and has breathtaking 3.2m ceiling heights with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. This room has designated kitchen/dining/ living areas. During summer the space opens directly onto the outside terrace and spacious garden.
There is a separate utility area that is fitted with pantry storage shelves and cupboards along with an additional sink.
The upper floor contains three well-proportioned bedrooms. The master bedroom is positioned to the rear of the property overlooking the garden and has a large ensuite bathroom and additional dressing room. The huge windows provide an abundance of light opening out to fully expose a Juliette balcony, ideal for the summer months. The adjacent bedroom has similar features and has a generous ensuite bathroom. A further bedroom is located towards the front of the house and is serviced by a large communal bathroom.
An intercom system runs through the house, enabling easy communication from the front gate. A high-speed internet connection is enabled from multiple providers.
A large-level garden space in Bath is a rarity, this south-facing garden is bathed in sunshine throughout the day and into the evening, making it a perfect space for entertaining. The stone wall boundary and line of mature trees to the rear of the garden provide excellent privacy. The front of the house is protected with an electric gate and has enough parking for two motor vehicles. There is generous space to the side of the property providing access to the extensive garden. Should further parking, garaging, a home office or secondary accommodation be required there is the potential to build to the side and in the grounds of the property. (Subject to planning permission and the relevant consents).
Please note: The target completion date of the build is July 2023
North Road is close to some of the best schools in the area, and a short walk to Rainbow Wood
and the Bath skyline (NT). The property is set back from the road by a private gated drive. Combe Down is conveniently located for access to the city centre, and Bath Spa station (75 minutes to London Paddington) which is a 15-minute walk. Some of the finest walks in Bath are accessed directly opposite the property, and the National Trust Prior Park Landscaped Gardens are a brief 5-minute walk from the front door. Bath is the only city in Britain to achieve Unesco World Heritage status which continues to be vehemently protected.
