About our home

Our delightful family home was built ten years ago in the style of a period property in keeping with the style of the local neighbourhood. It has the look of a Victorian property but the benefits of a new home. Tastefully decorated throughout with modern artwork, it has an open plan ground floor with a light and airy living space which opens out on to a secluded garden. The living space includes a 55" HD television set up with LoveFilm, Netflix, blu ray DVD player, Xbox and PS3. We have an extensive DVD collection that covers most genres and tastes. The living area is also fitted with an iPod dock and CD player with speakers. The dining area and kitchen are adjoining complete with dining table for 6/8 people and the kitchen is fitted with all mod cons (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and fridge freezer). There is also a downstairs toilet.

Opening out from the living area is the garden. Walled with two separate areas. The garden is a real sun trap and has space to relax, space to eat and space to play. There is a great bbq too. We also have private parking and a garage adjoining the garden area.

On the first floor, there is a large master bedroom with en suite including a bath plus walk in shower. In the master bedroom there is a king size bed and full sized closet.
Along side this is the second bedroom with double bed and full sized closet. Both rooms are wonderfully light and peaceful.

On the second floor are two further bedrooms. These are currently our children's bedrooms so are all set up for kids. There is the toddler room complete with a full sized single cabin bed and den underneath. The baby's room is complete with cot bed. This could be converted into a toddler bed is this would suit your needs. Next to these rooms is a further bathroom with a shower over the bath.

As this is a family home, we are all set up for children with books, toys, a high chair and two children's car seats. However, these can easily be put away to accommodate the kind of vacation you are looking for. There is wifi throughout the house.

Local Area

We live in a lovely residential area, one minutes walk from the local shops including a bakery, deli, coffee shops, florists and green grocers. Five minutes walk will take you directly to the River Avon which you can walk along all the way into historic Bath.

Founded by the Romans as a thermal spa, Bath became an important centre of the wool industry in the Middle Ages. In the 18th century, under George III, it developed into an elegant town with neoclassical Palladian buildings, which blend harmoniously with the Roman baths.

The Roman remains, especially the Temple of Sulis Minerva and the baths complex (based around the hot springs at the heart of the Roman city of Aquae Sulis, which have remained at the heart of the City’s development ever since) are amongst the most famous and important Roman remains north of the Alps, and marked the beginning of Bath’s history as a spa town.

The Georgian city reflects the ambitions of John Wood Senior, Ralph Allen and Richard ‘Beau’ Nash to make Bath into one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, with architecture and landscape combined harmoniously for the enjoyment of the spa town’s cure takers.

The Neo-classical style of the public buildings (such as the Assembly Rooms and the Pump Room) harmonises with the grandiose proportions of the monumental ensembles (such as Queen Square, Circus, and Royal Crescent) and collectively reflects the ambitions, particularly social, of the spa city in the 18th century. Royal Victoria Park is a beautiful green park only 15 minutes walk from our home. It has beautiful botanical gardens, a great children's playground and of course, the Royal Crescent.

We are also only 20 minutes driving from Bristol which has a whole host of things to offer including the aquarium, science museum, fine dining, Aardman Studios, Clifton Suspension Bridge and much, much more. Bristol airport is also close by giving you access to the whole of Europe. The Cotswolds is only an hour away by car and London is only an hour and a half by train.
