Offered for sale by auction on Wednesday July 24th, Hampton Cottage is a unique Grade II Listed three bedroom period property with private garden, garage and off road parking space situated within the grounds of Hampton House within a mile from Great Pulteney Street. The property also benefits from the use of well maintained residents gardens with pleasant views of Camden and Larkhall.

The location is less than a mile walk 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 on the canal. The location gives the best of both worlds with Bath city centre full of wonderful architecture and life alongside the countryside including the Kennet and Avon canal, Bathampton village and Bath's famous skyline walk. Sham Castle golf club is easily accessible and within a mile from the property.

Commuters to London can use mainline Bath Spa to get to London Paddington in 81 minutes and commuters to the M4 can use the toll bridge in Bathampton to avoid the city centre. The property is also ideally placed for easy access to a triangle of excellent state and independent schools including King Edward's School and Bathwick St Mary's Primary school.

This charming Grade II listed cottage is attached to Hampton House, an impressive Grade II listed circa 1810 building. You access the property via a sweeping private driveway off Warminster Road leading past residents only garages and parking spaces with the communal garden lawn opposite.

The garage and parking space that comes with Hampton Cottage is handily positioned immediately to the side of the property. A private entrance takes you into an L-shaped hall with a well proportioned sitting room to its left with a kitchen dining room to the front with glazed double doors connecting to the private patio garden overlooking the well kept residents gardens. A utility and WC complete the ground floor with a staircase to the first floor from the L-shaped hallway.

The first floor includes a well proportioned landing with space for a desk by the window. Bedrooms one and two are good sized doubles with built in storage to both. Bedroom three is a smaller double bedroom and a large shower room completes the accommodation.

Externally, the property includes a private garden off the kitchen dining room, the use of the well kept residents gardens and a garage with off road parking space to its front.
