Woodcote is at the heart of leafy Bathampton Lane on the edge of this wonderful village located on the fringe of Bath. This family home is around a mile walk away from Bath's famous Sydney Gardens and Great Pulteney Street. Bathampton village centre thrives; mixing the picturesque canal bridge and stunning village church with a great community that includes The George pub and a Doctors Surgery. In addition the countryside is on your doorstep including easy access to Kennett and Avon canal. Schools throughout Bath are highly recommended, and the village school was rated Outstanding in 2010 Ofsted. The highly regarded King Edwards School is only 1.1 miles distant. Access to M4 is around 10 miles via the toll bridge and A46 and importantly avoids the worst of the traffic of Bath city centre mainline Bath Spa is around 2.2 miles by car or an easy cycle through the city.

Woodcote is an impressive Victorian residence sitting in wonderful grounds of around a third of an acre. A stone pillared gated entrance from the lane leads to a large pea gravelled parking area in front of the house with further space to the side with an additional pedestrian gate. The attractive double doors of the household open to the welcoming hall with bright, attractive minton tiles and an impressive solid wood staircase. The ground floor has a lovely symmetrical feel. To the rear of the house the sitting room and drawing room span the width of the property with the bay window looking down over the rear garden. There are fireplaces and a large opening to the drawing room creating a sizable room. At the front, the adjacent dining and study both look out to Bathampton Lane and have quality wood flooring and fireplaces.

The galleried landing has a wow factor with high ceilings and a lightwell. The bedrooms on the first floor all benefit from excellent proportions making this a fine home for a family. The main room has a view out over the valley to the canal and beyond. It also benefits from an ensuite bathroom. The bedrooms to the front are light and airy. The bathroom is an excellent size and sits in a nice position between the bedrooms. The fourth bedroom at the rear has a door that opens to a ladder staircase to the roomy loft space.

To the rear of the hall on the ground floor there are stairs down to the lower ground floor. Here, passing the utility, pantry and shower room is the kitchen which opens to a breakfast area and then a conservatory to the garden. The gardens are splendidly mature with an outdoor swimming pool at the rear of the conservatory surrounded by trees and palms. A further level lawn lead on and arrives at steps to the lower garden which is enclosed by high walls and has a gate to a field where there is a footpath to the canal. There are plenty of fruit trees and vines as well as a walnut and bay tree.
This mature garden is a superb family space to enjoy and continue to develop.
