With stunning views across the Box Valley and just five miles from Bath, Embers offers any buyer a beautiful period home within an idyllic and peaceful location, with fantastic walks from their doorstep. The property is set within over half an acre of gardens in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a quiet no-through road, accessed from Doctors Hill, Kingsdown. There is an option to buy an additional paddock (3/4 acre) to the front of the house.
The interior has a wonderfully homely feel and almost all the rooms benefit from valley views. The property is accessed through a spacious entrance hall/garden room with exposed stone wall and original cottage doorway. This leads into the ‘L’ shaped kitchen/dining room, which is beautifully appointed with unique Lakeland slate worktops and an Aga and features a period Bath stone fireplace. Underfloor heating runs throughout the kitchen and adjoining utility room, with large sky lights, plenty of storage and space for freestanding cooker and integrated appliances. A separate WC leads off the utility room.
The charming sitting room has wonderful views to the front and also benefits from a further period Bath stone fireplace with a Dovre 1800 multi fuel burner. The flexible and spacious triple aspect second reception room has a useful small study leading off. A shower room/WC completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor are four double bedrooms which can be accessed via two separate staircases and can all be linked together via bedroom three. The stylish family bathroom has a bath and shower cubicle with full white suite and towel rail. The landing area provides further storage space with cupboards and built in wardrobes.
Of particular note are the two lovely workspaces for working from home whilst out of the house. A garden studio offers a wonderful environment with stunning views from your desk and the garage extension provides a second light and airy workspace, with its own sun trap patio. Mature gardens wrap around the whole property offering a variety of seating areas that enjoy sun at different times of the day. A timber shed, treehouse and stone garage complete the outside accommodation.
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 pubs. Further local amenities include a small supermarket, post office and village store in Box. To the west is the Georgian city of Bath, providing year-round entertainment and events of cultural interest. The city's mainline railway station links to London Paddington with a journey time of 80 minutes. Bristol International airport is less than a 25 mile drive away.
