Chelscombe Farm has been in the same family since the early 1800’s passing through the various generations who have continued to farm the land that surrounds it. This Grade II listed property, believed to date back to the mid 17th Century, occupies a wonderful escarpment position and is sat centrally within its spell binding 100 acres offering a diverse mix of pasture land and woodland. The house enjoys some of the finest south facing views you will see. This house is uniquely free from disruption, surprising for a house that is within 2 miles of the heritage city of Bath. It is easily accessible for the well-regarded Kingswood School and Royal High School.
The house itself is in need of some modernisation, but with some imagination you could create a wonderful, once in a life-time, home from which to enjoy this incredible spot. The majority of the outbuildings are of traditional construction and located close to the main house, making the opportunity for involvement within the domestic building a possibility, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions. The house is Grade II Listed as a testament to both its period charm and unique nature. You will find a number of period elements dotted around the house.
The property can be accessed via Fonthill Road, going past the well regarded Kingswood School and continuing until you find the entrance to the private driveway. The private drive is a third of a mile driving past your own land with wonderful views leading up to the farmhouse. The land then continues beyond the house following the hill line to the West.
This discrete and private property is located on the cusp of the heritage city of Bath and is sat centrally within its 100 acres of land. Whilst Bath has changed much over the years the exclusivity of this position has not. It still enjoys exceptional south facing views and you are just two miles from the centre of Bath, a city praised for its exceptional architecture and wonderful historic venues as well as its abundance of first class restaurants, shops and amenities. The schooling is superb with a plethora of well-regarded state and private schools for all ages, two being within walking distance. There is also an eclectic mix of entertainment, arts and museums as well as outdoor pursuits including golf and racing at Lansdown and beautiful and breath-taking walks and cycle paths.
