SITUATION

6 Macaulay Buildings is situated on Widcombe Hill, opposite National Trust land, just below the road marked “Macaulay Buildings”. At the front, the house has quite exceptional views across National Trust fields towards Smallcombe Woods and Bathwick Hill, as well as of the city. Views from the rear of the house are over gardens and the land surrounding Crowe Hall towards Prior Park Landscape Garden.

On the doorstep are a number of wonderful walks, through countryside and woodland, including the popular Bath Skyline circular walk, making it an ideal location for dog walkers and families alike.

Bath Spa railway station, which provides regular mainline services to London Paddington and Bristol, is less than a mile away.

At the bottom of Widcombe Hill, Widcombe Parade provides a number of local amenities in a village-style atmosphere. The White Hart Inn is well known locally for its food and ambience.
A number of state and private schools are within easy reach of Widcombe Hill. Junior schools, including The Paragon and Widcombe C of E Primary School are conveniently close, and nearby senior schools include Prior Park College, King Edward’s School, Beechen Cliff School, Hayesfield School and Ralph Allen School.

DESCRIPTION

The house has a marvellous range of original, period features, including cornicing, shutters and large sash windows, with fireplaces in most of the rooms.

Entering the house, you are greeted by a spacious entrance hall and immediately struck by the exceptional levels of light and space. The generous hallway leads to a front reception room (currently used as a study) which has a beautiful curved sash window and stunning views of Smallcombe Woods and beyond to Bathwick Hill and the city. A second door leads from the hallway to the double aspect drawing room which has a beautiful marble fireplace and views over the gardens. Both reception rooms are connected by a doorway. At the bottom of the staircase is a spacious coat cupboard.

On the lower ground floor, the kitchen has a range of contemporary-style white base and wall units with a Rangemaster range cooker, complemented by a travertine tiled floor. French doors open to the well-stocked garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is an excellent family room (or TV room for children), which is extremely cosy with its woodburning stove. This room leads to a lobby area with a travertine tiled floor and a cloakroom housing the Vaillant boiler, and finally to a really superb garden room, partly glazed with French doors to the garden. This room is perfect for entertaining, or could be used as a music or art studio. Off the hall, close to the kitchen, is a very practical utility room, with a sink and plumbed for a washing machine, which leads to a storage vault. Adjacent to the kitchen, is a further door to the garden.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and both rooms have fabulous views across the National Trust fields. The second bedroom on this floor is a very good size, with wonderful views over Crowe Hall’s land and beyond. Both bedrooms have period fireplaces.

On the half landing to the first floor is a convenient cloakroom, serving the ground floor reception rooms.

On the top floor of the house are three excellent bedrooms, a well fitted bathroom and a shower room on the half landing.

Outside

The generous sized garden extends to the south side of the house, and is well stocked with a good range of shrubs, fruit trees and herbaceous plants. It is totally enclosed, wrapping around the side and back of the house, providing plenty of space for families.

At street level, a high wrought iron gate provides convenient access to the garden, enabling items to be moved in and out of the house and garden very easily. Just to the left of the house, close to the garden gate is a convenient outside storage cupboard, currently used as a wood store.
