Property description


Overdale has been in the same ownership for over 40 years. Built in the 1700s, the property has matured and changed through the generations. Originally two separate farm workers' cottages, the current owners were able to link the cottages together to create the current house we see today.

The accommodation is arranged over 2 floors, the ground floor has a meandering layout with entrances to the front and rear of the property. Due to the nature of the two properties being linked, it has created a wonderful feeling of light and space. The open-plan kitchen/dining room has a biofuel pellet boiler with a hotplate, a separate oven, and an induction hob set into the granite work surface. The bespoke hand-built kitchen has been carefully designed maximising storage and worktop food preparation space. The sitting room benefits from generous proportions and has an attractive and very effective wood-burning stove. There is a spacious family bathroom on the ground floor with a bath, loo, and hand basin. The bedroom accommodation can be found on the first floor with 3 bedrooms - all with their own staircases in different parts of the house. There is also a handy 'Jack & Jill' shower room providing facilities for two of the bedrooms.

Externally the property provides a wealth of interest for the keen gardener. With a lower sun-terrace and rockery garden near the rear of the house, there is an original well that has a large capacity and a pump providing abundant free water for the garden all year round.

Towards the top of the garden is a large studio/office/summer house that is powered with its own water supply, kitchenette, and shower room - historically a popular teenagers' den but in current times a very practical additional building that has multiple applications. The garden also has a tool shed and rear access for heavy machinery.

The garage (with remote-controlled roller door) is 2 cars (or tandem) in length with power and an EV charging point on the external wall. There is room for two further cars to park on the drive off-street.


The village of Shoscombe is situated approximately 7 miles south of the UNESCO city of Bath. Popular for those who enjoy the outdoors, there are numerous country walks, a cycle path, and bridle ways nearby. The village has a popular pub called The Apple Tree Inn and there is a good local primary school. Shops and further amenities can be found in the village of Wellow and Peasedown St. John.
