About this property

TENURE: Freehold

This Grade II Listed cottage is believed to date back to the 1400s with part of the stone façade comprising of two gables including attractive stone mullion windows. The reception rooms in the original part of the house are charming with beamed ceilings and an open fire in the sitting room. The dining room beams contain traces of art believed to be original. In the mid 20th Century a third gabled extension was added to create a larger kitchen, a third first floor bedroom and reception hall. The family room and a further bedroom suite were subsequently added in the 1970’s and now in 2018, the cottage would benefit from a more modern make over. This is a great opportunity, subject to the usual consents, to alter the current layout to create further space and synergy to this unique village home. A further feature is a self-contained two bedroom annexe with a private bathroom, perfect for guests or those who work from home.

Norton St Philip is a sought after and popular village situated approximately seven miles south east of Bath. Local amenities include a church, a primary school and a pre-school, and two public houses 'The Fleur de Lys' and 'The George', reputed to be one of the oldest public houses in England housing an ancient dining room and a lovely beer garden looking out over Church Mead, a quintessential village view. Norton St Philip also benefits from a small Co-operative supermarket and also nearby is the popular Farleigh Road Farm Shop and Café. There is good access into Bath including a regular bus service.

Bell Cottage is approached via a drive, adjacent to the neighbour’s fields, which leads into the private driveway of the cottage. There is plenty of parking which is helpful for those who wish to make use of the annexe which comprises two rooms and a shower room. This is a super asset especially for those who work from home and need parking, not always an easy find in a village. The garden to the front is enclosed by beech hedging, fencing and shrubs with a path meandering through the lawn to the porch and the original entrance into the sitting room. There is an attached double garage (currently used as stabling). To the rear is a further level garden enclosed by hedging.
