Grosvenor Terrace is a four-bedroom family home packed with period features and decorated in a modern style.
The HouseEntering the house, you are greeted by an enclosed porch which leads into the hallway and, ahead, a staircase that flows both up and down. This floor has two good-sized living rooms: at the front, a bay window has white plantation shutters, there's attractive coving and detailing and a tiled fireplace with surround. The family room has built-in shelving in the alcoves and a large window overlooking the rear garden. Downstairs to the lower ground, there is a shower room in one corner with a door opening onto the kitchen/dining room. Here, there's an AGA range and storage, both built-in and freestanding, including a utility cupboard housing the washing and drying machines.There is considerable scope to create a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining area, and, with the necessary permissions, to extend out into the garden. On the first floor is the principal bedroom with built in storage, plantation shutters, and dado and picture rails, and a second bedroom with separate WC. The top floor has two further bedrooms with far-reaching views towards Solsbury Hill and Lansdown, and a family bathroom. Gardens and GroundsAt the front, a whitewashed courtyard has steps leading down, via a lavender flowerbed, to the kitchen door on the lower ground floor. There's storage here for recycling bins, etc. At the rear, the delightful east facing garden extends to 120ft with new fencing/trellising on either side. It has terraces that begin with the paved patio closest to the house and lead down to the end of the garden, with access to the Lam Brook, a stream which flows from the Cotswold Hills to join the river Avon. These terraced areas include a lawn with flowerbeds, a gravelled seating area that affords a wonderful spot for evening entertaining, a treehouse and two sheds.

Nearby Alice Park is a popular place for locals with a playpark, tennis courts and cafe. There are good pre and primary schools locally, in addition to an excellent selection of both independent and state schools in Bath and the surrounding areas.
