Built in 1928, Rosemary House offers versatile family accommodation with three double bedrooms upstairs, one en-suite, and a further bedroom/office downstairs with bathroom attached. South facing gardens and stunning views on the outskirts of desirable Limpley Stoke, five miles south east of Bath, make it very appealing.
The vendor says: "It was the location which initially attracted us to Rosemary House. It is only 5 miles from Bath but being on the edge of Freshford it is definitely in the country with beautiful views over to the White Horse at Westbury and neighbouring fields and a south-facing garden. Both our children went to Freshford School, a downhill walk in the morning, and then later to Monkton Combe school, a ten-minute drive away. It ticked all the boxes for a perfect family home."
"In the past 25 years we have made many improvements including adding a room downstairs which was initially a play room but is currently an office/spare bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Of the three bedrooms upstairs, the master bedroom is dual aspect and is the full width of the house, and the double bedroom with the en-suite has great views. We converted an outbuilding into a fully functioning office, with bathroom facilities, but it has in the past been used as a self-contained living space. This house is brilliant at Christmas as we have plenty of room to accommodate all the family and guests easily. With the wood burning stove in the lounge it is so cosy at this time of year."
"In Summer the house is great too. The sitting room is duel aspect and opens out into the conservatory which faces south so it is lovely and bright. The doors open onto the terrace where we can sit and relax on a summer's evening. When the children were younger it was ideal to watch them play on the lawns in the secure garden."
"We redesigned the drive which now sweeps up through a wrought iron gate to the back of the house where there is a triple garage, but also plenty more room for cars to turn and park. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, ideal for the children, but there are also interesting areas with flowers, shrubs, ornamental trees and bushes. There is also a garden shed."
"Freshford is a lovely village. It has an excellent school, two churches, a pub/restaurant, a doctor's surgery and a local train station. The village shop is well stocked, with a fantastic cafe for meeting up with friends. Outside the house is a bus stop which is handy for older children to travel independently into Bath. There are some splendid walks too. The canal is not too far away and walking from the Inn at Freshford to the Cross Guns at Avoncliff for a pie and a pint is both pleasant and rewarding."
"The house has been a super family home, adapting and changing with the age of the children and the needs of family life, and we have really enjoyed raising our family here. The house is now ready for a family to take it on its next journey."
