Across the hall is an elegant French style dining room to seat 8. A grand table, dressy chairs and a long elegant console and shelves (with Wi-fi.) give this room a sense of occasion. Downstairs is a marvelous gathering space with a large handsome open plan kitchen leading to a beautiful and atmospheric oak beamed living and dining area with French doors out to the garden. A spacious lobby tiled in smooth travertine has a well organised utility on one side and a smart fitted oak kitchen with black granite tops on the other.

The Living room end has a working coal effect gas fire, fitted into an original fire-place with deep alcoves on either side housing a TV with DVD, digital radio, and a selection of books and films. In front is a vast comfortable cream `L` -shaped sofa to seat up to 7, coffee table and a cosy leather armchair. The oak dining table comfortably seats 8.

There is an outdoor table with chairs to seat 6 and further down is a hidden loggia with a outdoor table and chairs for 4. The stylish Bedrooms on the first and second floors are charming. They all have original decorative fireplaces, large sash windows and sweeping views over the vale with tremendous trees, rolling green hillside, pretty gardens and a tumble of Bath stone houses in the distance.

About the neighbourhood
If you want to take a break from the city, there is much to explore from the house. Close by is the tiny and atmospheric church of St Thomas a Becket built between 1490 and 1498 over a Norman church with even older Saxon origins. This tiny settlement was mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086. Farther along is Widcombe Manor a fabulous grade 1 listed manor built in 1656, visited by the rich and famous. Nearby is the National Trust owned Prior Park Gardens with a Palladian bridge created in the 18th century by local architect and entrepreneur Ralph Allen with advice from Capability Brown and the poet Alexander Pope.
