Combe Grange is an impressive Grade II listed, double-fronted detached house with a former stable block, which is now a four bedroom detached house with its own separate access and garden. Believed to date from the early 19th Century and once part of The Combe Grove Estate, the house is ideally situated on the edge of Bath within a conservation area and boasts spectacular panoramic views over Monkton Combe and the Midford Valley.
The house is approached through wrought iron electric gates which lead on to a large driveway with a large newly-built Heritage timber car port housing up to four cars. There is also a footpath, accessed via a pedestrian gate, lined with beautiful David Austin scented roses which leads from Shaft Road to the entrance of Combe Grange. The house has been renovated and refurbished by the owners to a high standard which has created an exceptional family home with spacious flexible accommodation arranged over three floors. The new contemporary design complements the original period features of this Georgian property which include flagstone floors, fireplaces, sash windows and shutters. All of the rooms at the front of the house have wonderful views through large sash windows which let light flood in.
Situated off the grand entrance hall which features solid oak parquet flooring, is a stone cantilever staircase leading to the first and second floors. The light and airy drawing room also flanks the entrance hall as does the dining room and the utility room. The kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room are situated at the end of the hall. Featuring Mandarin Stone Limestone floor tiles with underfloor heating, these rooms are the hub of the house for family living and entertaining. French doors in the kitchen open out on to a large terrace area ideal for al fresco dining, which in turn gives access to the front and rear gardens.
The impressive principal suite is on the first floor and has the benefit of "his and hers" en suite bath and shower rooms and a large dressing room area. There are three further double bedrooms on the first floor, a family bathroom, a laundry room and an ironing room. All three first floor bathrooms have underfloor heating. There are three more double bedrooms on the second floor, one of which has an en suite, and there is a separate shower room.
