Description

There are indeed only a very small number of detached Georgian houses in Bath; believed to be less than 20. Oldfield Villa is a simply superb example of a family house that has been loved and enjoyed by the current owners. Dressed ashlar façade with slate roof and some fine period external detailing includes a wonderful pillared portico to the front of the house, a most delightful rose window at first floor level and to the rear there are timber sliding shutters.

Entering the house via the front, grand double doors open to the inner lobby with matwell. This leads through to a superb entrance...

There are indeed only a very small number of detached Georgian houses in Bath; believed to be less than 20. Oldfield Villa is a simply superb example of a family house that has been loved and enjoyed by the current owners. Dressed ashlar façade with slate roof and some fine period external detailing includes a wonderful pillared portico to the front of the house, a most delightful rose window at first floor level and to the rear there are timber sliding shutters.

Entering the house via the front, grand double doors open to the inner lobby with matwell. This leads through to a superb entrance hall which runs front to rear of the house; there are views straight out to the garden, which is very appealing. The floor tiles in the hall are marble in classical style.

To the right hand side is a very well appointed study. Plenty of fitted cupboards with bookshelves above line the walls and there is a marble fireplace with cast iron insert. There attractive views to the front of the property via a large sash window with shutters.

To the left of the hall is a wonderful double reception room with large wedding doors between the two. There is a very large window bathing the room with light at the front of the house and to the far end of the drawing room there are twin French doors leading to the gardens beyond. The view of the zinc canopy with iron support makes a delightful centrepiece to the room. There are twin matching marble fireplaces with gas fires inset.

Back to the hall, there is a useful cloakroom situated by the back door. On from the study is a secondary hallway that has the most superb range of original housekeeping cupboards. A doorway leads through to the kitchen, which again is very beautifully designed with a comprehensive range of painted units, Smeg oven, integrated dishwasher and wooden stripped floor. This in turn leads through to the breakfast room which is rather like a summer room with plenty of glazing to really take in the views of the garden.

To the side of the kitchen, stairs lead down to a very well fitted laundry room with Butler’s sink and plumbing for washing machine and dryer. A back door leads out to a courtyard, ideal for hanging out washing. Back to the kitchen doorway, there is an access hatch in the floor which leads down to a cellar.

The hall where the housekeeping cupboards are located leads through to a further superb sitting room, ideal as a playroom for both kids and adults. There is a large ashlar stone surround in which our clients have mounted a TV. This part of the house can be used as a self-contained annexe as it not only has its own front door to the side of the house, but also has a very useful shower room and stairs which take you up to a lovely double bedroom.

Upstairs, on the first floor, are three bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys views over the gardens with sliding external shutters, superb cornicing and a marble fireplace. There is a beautifully fitted en suite bathroom with contemporary style bath central to the room, plenty of fitted cupboards, a shower cubicle and twin hand basins. Bedroom 2, also to the rear, has shutters and views of the gardens. A third double bedroom and family bathroom complete the first floor.

On the top floor there is a very good sized bedroom with walk-in cupboard and a shower room. There is also a cupboard on the stairs which leads into spacious attic storage.

Outside

To the front of the house, the grand gateway opening leads through to a gravel driveway with parking for at least six cars. To the right hand side, a doorway accesses the boiler room. The driveway continues down the side of the house (where you will also find the front door to the annexe) to a long tandem garage. To the far end is a work bench. To the rear of the laundry room there is an enclosed courtyard area and at the far end a further charming building which is currently used for storage. However, it could easily be used as a summerhouse with French doors to the garden.

Entering the main body of the garden, a large terrace runs across the rear of the breakfast room and drawing room French doors, ideal for summer dining and entertaining. We would say the gardens are amongst the finest we have seen in recent years. There is a sweeping lawn bordered with superb herbaceous and perennial plants. There are also many attractive trees including a Magnolia Grandiflora and beautiful Mulberry tree, currently in full production! To one side of the garden is a superb listed greenhouse, where you also find a sweet little vegetable patch with two raised beds.
