An exciting opportunity to acquire this superb 4/5 bedroom detached property on the edge of countryside between Bath and Bristol. The Coach House is a beautiful family home which benefits from generous living accommodation throughout. An internal inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate what is on offer.
Upon entering the property, you are greeted with a gated entrance and a large driveway to fit at least six cars. There is also a double garage which could be converted (with the relevant planning permissions) into a self-contained annexe.
Once inside The Coach House, you are welcomed with a large entrance hall with solid wood flooring that sweeps throughout. The living room allows plenty of space for entertaining, and boasts a large log burner, making the living room the hub of the house. Cleverly, the current owners have created a 'tucked away' home office / study at the back of this living area.
Next door to the living room is a large billiards/games room. This could easily be re-modelled as the fifth/guest bedroom as there is already a large second reception room on this ground floor, currently being used as the formal dining room. The formal dining room is of a dual aspect and looks out onto the large garden, the lane and neighbouring fields.
The country- style kitchen offers you plenty of workspace and enough room for a large dining table, as well as exposed oak beams and high ceilings, which add to the character and charm this home has to offer. The kitchen comes well equipped with a large gas range and double oven perfect for hosting stress-free dinner parties. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious further room which opens onto the garden, currently used as a gym but which could offer further utility space or an additional home office.
The ground floor is also home to a downstairs shower-room, equipped with underfloor heating.
At first floor level there are four double bedrooms, including a large master with a spacious en-suite offering a luxurious Jacuzzi-style bath. In recent years the current owners have had all the bedrooms fitted with built-in solid oak wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom and large airing cupboard located on this floor.
The side garden adjacent to the drive comprises of a ½ acre plot of land which new owners might wish to consider as a potential area on which to build (with the relevant planning permissions in place); the remaining garden would still be a considerable size and offer privacy beyond the gated entrance of the property. The front garden is currently laid to lawn and has a decked hot tub area tucked away to the rear.
We have been advised that there is mains water, gas and electricity. In addition, this property has cesspits for sewage drainage in a neighbouring field.
