This detached four bedroom home is situated just above the city centre and is approached via a private shared drive, off North Road, to a select development of three houses. Apiculus is the first house and the garden stretches from the road to the sides and rear of the house. There is parking to the front of the double garage and a few steps lead up to the upper ground floor reception hall. Designed on split levels in 1970, this is the first time this unique home has been on the market and provides a blank canvas and scope to extend if desired. The sitting room is a major feature with its tall ceiling and glazed doors opening on to a superb decked balcony large enough for family gatherings. The reception is 'L' shape with double doors opening into a dining room so again, great for entertaining. The kitchen is in its original format and there are plans available (approved but lapsed) for outward extension of both the kitchen and dining room. The four bedrooms are divided on two levels whilst the lower ground floor provides a store, double garage and workshop/utility area. A modern city home in an attractive setting.
North Road is a highly desirable address with excellent access to Bath University just up the road and some of Bath's most sought after schools, including King Edwards, just down the road. Bath Golf Club is just across the road and there is a pleasant walk enjoying panoramic views down to Bath approximately 1.5 miles away. The city is a unique blend of old and new offering breath-taking architecture with cosmopolitan lifestyle. Bath hosts some of the best shops, restaurants and leisure facilities outside of London. The Bath Spa Railway Station has a high speed train service operating to London Paddington (approximately 90 minutes). Bristol International Airport is approximately 20 miles.
The gardens of Apiculus start from the shared entrance. The current owners have kept it open, but the lawns that start from the boundary of a stone wall and run along the drive to the house are private and could be fenced or hedged in. There is also an area on the right hand side of the entrance which could provide additional parking and continues to a strip running the length of the drive on the right which borders the woods of the neighbouring property on Bathwick Hill. The garden to the rear is a rockery and slope of lawn bordered by a mellow stone wall and of particular note is the terrace over the roof of the garage with access from the reception rooms and onto the garden; a perfect spot to sit out and relax.
