A three storey, three bedroom Georgian (1740) cottage forming part of a set of twelve Georgian properties built with fine Bath stone elevations under a pitched roof with a clay tile covering. Built circa 1740 for Ralph Allen's stone masons who worked on the quay side nearby to fashion the Bath stone after it was mined in Combe Down and transported down the tramway via Ralph Allen Drive. The Bath stone (Ashlar) staircase has been retained and the property has the benefit of a southwest facing rear patio garden with a further garden area beyond.
Enter the property into a small entrance hall which is a useful area for hanging coats and storing shoes and then enter through into the sitting room. A spacious room with an enchanting solid Ashlar stone spiral staircase leading to the first floor. There is a window to the front and a stable door leads to the rear garden. Off the sitting room is the kitchen extension which is nice and light due to the window and roof window. The kitchen provides everything you need from a modern kitchen with white units and granite worktops. The first floor landing leads to bedroom 2 which is a double bedroom and the family bathroom. On the second floor is the master bedroom and bedroom 3 which is ideal as a single bedroom or an office space. Outside to the rear is a good sized south west facing terraced garden with patio, landscaped low maintenance upper trier with an abundance of interesting plants such as fruiting grapevine, double cherry tree, double apple tree, olive plants, male hollybush, castor oil plant and hydrangeas.
