Situated to the west of Bath in the ever popular village of Farmborough is a pretty three bedroom Edwardian semi-detached house with a large kitchen/diner, spacious lounge, loft, utility room, workshop, and generous garden.
The vendors say: "At the back of the house we have a quintessential English cottage garden, which leads onto expansive fields and views of countryside, so you really are in the heart of the country here. The garden, very pretty in Summer, is enclosed and therefore very private and safe for children, surrounded by beautiful mature trees. It is also perfect for outdoor entertaining and summer barbecues with family and friends."
"The kitchen/ family room is a wonderfully sociable space where the whole family can sit together around the large dining table and enjoy each other's company in the warmth of the log burner. It's a lovely friendly space to be in. Spanning around 26 feet, the huge sitting room is a fantastic space for the many parties we have had there."
Set on the outskirts of the thriving but peaceful village of Farmborough, the property's location has much to offer. "There is easy access to country walks in the pretty surroundings, there is a lovely walk across footpaths and past the llamas to the village community shop in Memorial Hall which we often visit with our grandchildren. The shop is well stocked with staples and a good place for a coffee and chance to catch up with local gossip. There is also a garage, church, outstanding local primary school and two pubs. The village has an active community with a football club, a cricket team, tennis court and basketball court. For fine dining The Pig, a 29 bedroom stylish country house hotel is 2.2 miles away, and the Pony and Trap, the Michelin star restaurant is 6.2 miles away. The house is located on the road which links Farmborough to Timsbury which is busy during commuter times, but safe for pedestrian usage and dog walking, and our daughters are runners and use the road frequently. Our bedroom is at the front of the house and it is always quiet at night. "
Situated just 8.5 miles to the centre of the World Heritage City of Bath, the village is also ideally located for those needing access to the vibrant city of Bristol via the A37, 11.5 miles away: both cities offering much in the way of cultural, business and leisure facilities and well as architecture of great historical interest. Bristol Airport is 13 miles away. "This is the perfect place for commuters," say the owners, "being between Bath and Bristol, yet enjoying the benefits of life in a friendly village with many opportunities to get involved in the community." Bus services run regularly into both Bath and Bristol, with mainline rail services to London Paddington from Bath Spa station and Bristol Temple Meads.
"We have exceptionally nice neighbours here, which is part of what makes it such a pleasant place to live."
