Impressive and highly attractive 4 bedroom, detached residence just 15 minutes from the centre of Bath, occupying grounds of circa one acre, with countryside views, private driveway, off-road parking, workshop and garage and huge scope for further improvement situated in a quiet and secluded spot in the idyllic village of Priston. EPC Rating F.

We are delighted to offer this incredible country residence in one of the areas most desirable villages, just 15 minutes from the centre of Bath and occupying a plot of circa 1 acre. In brief the property comprises of an entrance hall, sitting room, hobby room, kitchen/dining room, utility and WC to the ground floor with four bedrooms (one ensuite) and a family bathroom to the first floor. Although now in need of general updating the property has been kept in immaculate condition by the current vendors, evidence of which can be seen throughout. Its current foot-print works tremendously well for families as it is but one of the main draws will be the scope and flexibility to extend and improve the accommodation. This is feasible due to the large workshop, garage and conservatory to the right of the property which, subject to planning, offers the perfect canvas to create much more expansive living. All the rooms in the house are of excellent proportions with those to the front taking in stunning views of the gardens and countryside beyond. From a practicality perspective, the hobby room would make an excellent study for those needing to work from home. There are a wealth of character features including exposed beams, stone walls, oil fired Rayburn and feature fireplaces. This combined with more modern touches provide the perfect home. Whether for families, those looking to be in close proximity of Bath or those looking for idyllic village life, one would be hard pushed to find a more attractive and versatile home with stacks of potential still to be realised.

Priston is a small village just five miles south of Bath, enveloped by fields which are vibrant with yellow rapeseed flowers in spring and golden with ripening crops in summer. There is a good range of State & Private schools in the area. The traditional and friendly Ring O'Bells pub in the centre of the village is a meeting place for locals and visitors alike and serves quality food and drink. The rural 12th century church, is a beautiful landmark of the village. Priston also holds a traditional May Day fete on the first May Bank Holiday each year. This celebration of spring sees children dancing round the Maypole, musical entertainment, family games, food stalls and the famous egg-throwing competition. A popular music festival, now in its 11th year takes place in September and features music for various tastes, an art project and food stalls. The community café, run by volunteers, is open each Saturday morning in the village hall, serving tea, coffee, bacon butties and home-made cakes. The hall itself is available for hire and is used regularly for classes such as Yoga, Thai Chi etc. The village cricket club plays friendly matches and there are often quiz nights, pantomimes and the well attended New Year Duck Race.

The property is approached via a 5-bar gate leading to an area of hard-standing which in turn leads to a sweeping drive-way down to the property and a large area of off-road parking, front entrance and access to the double garage and work-shop. The grounds approach circa 1 acre and are laid to manicured lawns, patio and seating areas and an abundance of colourful flora, mature shrubs and trees. A woodland stair case meanders up to the higher levels of the garden and provides a vista over the entirety of the garden. As well as fruit trees and vegetable beds there is a large area designated to poultry which could easily be turned back into lawn should one wish. Such is the scale and beauty of the outside space, there are delightful views at every turn including over the rolling Somerset hills that back onto the garden. There are also a number of useful garden sheds that can be utilised as work-shops and storage. It is the perfect setting to entertain friends and family alike, especially for summer soirees and alfresco dining – it has even laid host to a wedding. One of the finest gardens we have had the pleasure of marketing and also offering complete privacy from the outside world. Must be viewed.
