Dating to the 1700’s, this traditional Bath Stone cottage started life as an 18th century pub called “The New Inn”. Redeveloped in 2017 the home now combines the best of modern convenience with pretty cottage charm. Contemporary oak doors, underfloor heating, honed stone floors and elegant sash windows now define this stylish cottage. Beside the entrance, the newly fitted shaker-style kitchen has crisp white moulded work surfaces and plenty of white crockery and glassware. There is a 4-ring gas hob, electric oven, microwave, under-counter fridge, separate under-counter freezer and a dishwasher. A rustic table seats 6 on 3 chairs and a bench.
Three oak steps lead down to a large contemporary jewel-bright living area with light pouring in from a glazed roof lantern and bi-folding south-facing patio doors. There are two leather sofas to seat 5 and a tapestry-style easy chair. A wall-mounted internet-enabled TV is neatly recessed and a storage cupboard under has Infinity Fibre broadband Wi-Fi and DVD player. In fine weather, the long glazed doors can be pulled back for optimum enjoyment of a little walled courtyard garden planted with mature shrubs and climbers. There is a bench to catch the sun, an outdoor table and chairs with views of surrounding Bath stone terraces.
On the first floor is a spacious and elegant bedroom in mustard and grey with an upholstered 5’ bed. There is a large ash chest of drawers, a hanging rail, an easy chair and lamp. Shuttered windows reveal a lovely city view down the hill featuring the Bath Abbey. Adjacent is a contemporary under-floor heated bathroom crisply tiled in stone, with a small double-ended bath, a large walk-in shower, a hand-basin with storage under and a WC.
Another flight of stairs takes you to the top of the building, ending in a taupe and lime green bedroom under the eaves with restricted headroom to the sides. There are two 3’ single beds which can be made as a large double with “Zip & Link” mattresses, a chest of drawers and an alcove with hanging rail. Two further alcoves have LED lighting and in common with the other bedrooms, power sockets with USB charging points for mobile phones.
Private stairs lead down from the ground floor directly into a large double underfloor heated bedroom at lower ground floor level with shuttered windows. There are two 3’ single beds that “zip & link” to become a 6’double, a large ash chest of drawers and a wardrobe with shelf space placed in an alcove. Headroom is restricted at one end of the room by the stairs, which have been thoughtfully framed with a glass panel for a lighter, airier feel. There is a welcoming en-suite shower-room with a fully tiled walk-in shower, a hand basin and WC with oak shelf for toiletries. Double doors conceal a laundry cupboard with a washing machine combined with dryer, iron and further utility items.
The property comes with a parking permit allowing you to park one car on the street. Alternatively the Bath Spa Train Station and Bus Station are a 10-minute walk away.
