Formerly a quarryman’s cottage used by the workers of Box Quarry which supplied Bath with its trademark building materials, this small terrace of homes is slightly set back from the lane. An enclosed porch opens to a double volume reception room with front facing window and open fireplace providing an attractive sitting room. To the rear an open tread staircase ascends to the first floor and bi-fold doors lead out to the rear deck from the dining area. A well fitted kitchen at the front has hand made units with integrated gas hob, hood and a double oven. There is also a hatch access to a limited height cellar. The first floor landing leads to all three bedrooms and a well fitted bathroom that has a tiled floor and a separate shower mixer above the bath with a glass screen.
The hamlet of Kingsdown is located on the southern slopes of the valley between the villages of Bathford and Box. Both have extremely popular infant schools, churches, recreational grounds and public houses, and further local amenities include a small supermarket and village store in Box with a post office/store in Bathford. Further west is the Georgian city of Bath itself providing year round entertainment and events of cultural interest. The city's mainline railway station links to London Paddington with a journey time of 90 minutes. Bristol International airport is less than a 25 mile drive away. There is also a regular bus service from The Swan public house into Bath.
The rear gardens are delightfully stocked and benefit from elevated views across the By Brook valley. A raised deck with an awning leads down to a terrace and a formal lawn with planted beds and access to a garden WC/utility room. To the rear is an enclosed paved terrace to enjoy the wonderful views in privacy. There is a bank of garages nearby where the property benefits from a single unit with remote roller door for ease of use.
