Situation & Description
This truly unique opportunity is situated in the popular Charlcombe area of Bath, adjacent to Lansdown and approximately 2 miles north of Bath city centre - a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
On the market for the first time in over 75 years, the house and land offers the incoming buyer a wide variety of uses depending on their individual needs but the location and rare nature of this opportunity is bound to generate interest both locally and from buyers looking to relocate to the Georgian city from further afield.
With a truly rural feel, the house benefits from: Entrance Hall, Living Room, Kitchen, Dining Room, 3 Bedrooms and Bathroom with off-street parking for 1-2 cars. The gardens have been lovingly tended for many years and lead to a well-maintained lawned area leading to the meadow which stretches out from the house and covers an approximate 4.42 acres including wooded area as well as a separate entrance at the far end of the meadow and a large, unused pig sty.
The house, now in need of general cosmetic updating has potential (subject to gaining planning permission) to be extended to the side and rear to create a large, detached, modern family home with the land offering a plethora of options (again subject to obtaining the necessary consents) to include; long-term residential development potential, paddock land, equestrian use, stabling, commercial use (glamping or outdoor pursuits/venue) or simply be enjoyed as a wild meadow.
Buyers are advised to do their own due diligence as to the suitability and viability of any changes of use or alterations to the existing house or adjoining land.

* Generally speaking Guide Prices are provided as an indication of each seller's minimum expectation, i.e. 'The Reserve'. They are not necessarily figures which a property will sell for and may change at any time prior to the auction. Virtually every property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property during the auction) which we expect will be set within the Guide Range or no more than 10% above a single figure Guide.
By setting a proxy bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf to maintain your position as the highest bidder, up to your proxy bid amount. If you are outbid, you will be notified via email so you can opt to increase your bid if you so choose.
If two of more users place identical bids, the bid that was placed first takes precedence, and this includes proxy bids.
Another bidder placed an automatic proxy bid greater or equal to the bid you have just placed. You will need to bid again to stand a chance of winning.
