Lavender Cottage is a spacious and versatile family property occupying a wonderful elevated position with fantastic views and fabulous gardens, nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside on the outskirts of Bath. In all, the plot is approximately 0.75 of an acre.
The property originally dates back to circa 1740, but has been refurbished over recent years by the current owner, including the addition of new windows throughout. The versatile accommodation is arranged over two floors, with a good family living space and a homely feel with plenty of direct access out to the gardens and grounds.
From the entrance hall is the double aspect sitting room, dining room, family room and the traditional farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room. There is also a secondary kitchenette and practical utility room and cloakroom on this level.
On the first floor is the principal bedroom, with a snug/TV room and separate bathroom.
Additionally there are three further bedrooms and two shower rooms, one of which is an en suite.
The property also benefits from a separate detached cottage, currently comprising an open plan living/dining room, kitchen and wet room on the ground floor, with two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. This has been a very successful holiday let or would make perfect ancillary accommodation or a spacious home office.
The property is approached through a five-bar gate, onto a sweeping driveway where there is ample parking for a number of vehicles.
The south-facing landscaped gardens are a great feature, mainly laid to lawn, bordered by mature shrubs, trees and flower beds. At the front of the house is a sun terrace and a pretty ornamental pond. The grounds are perfect for a young family to explore and pet safe. In total they amount to approximately three quarters of an acre and benefit from a sunny aspect.
