This delightful two-bedroom cottage sits on an elevated position in Upper Swainswick, on the outskirts of Bath and offers its new owners a lot of potential to further improve the property. Its location provides great commuter access to both the City Centre and the M4 via the A46.
Overlooking the Wooley Valley, the garden boasts fantastic far-reaching views over an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) and is protected by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (CROW Act). To the side and rear of the property is a gardener delight with plenty of mature shrubs and has made good use of the landscape with a viewing deck and patio areas that capture the picturesque views over the valley. The space to the front of the property is currently a level lawn which in the future could provide additional parking from the pre-existing driveway.
Entering the cottage through the front door we enter a small hall, with the lounge to the left, it has a cosy feel, a large feature fireplace with electric fire, and large sash windows making the most of the stunning scenery. Walking back through the entrance hall and past the stairs we enter the dining room, which provides access, down a few steps to a Utility and bathroom with its p-shaped bath/shower. From a second small flight of stairs in the dining room we access the Kitchen. With its fitted cupboards, breakfast bar and small pantry cupboard the room boasts a great amount of space and storage. From the kitchen there is a small conservatory on the rear entrance, with a handy sink and plenty of room for muddy boots.
Rising up the stairs from the entrance hall, the staircase splits to provide access to both of the good-sized double bedrooms. The master bedroom makes use of the space above the stairs with a large storage cupboard and contains the loft access. Accessed from the outside of the cottage is also a useful under croft/cellar that is separated into two spaces that provide great additional storage.
Rose Cottage benefits with additional wooded land situated to the side of the pre-existing garden, this has the potential to be extra tiered garden or even elevated decking. The property previously obtained planning permission for a two-storey extension to the rear of the property that will provide a larger kitchen as well as a third bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
