The finely wrought Georgian architecture above is visible from this wide basement entrance, dotted with pot plants. The smartly tiled foyer leads to a huge, comfortable living area with 2 large sash windows. Three alcoves which would have housed the kitchen range and ovens in Georgian times, have been brought up to date with a 42'' 3D TV (with BT Vision and i-Player) on one side and a selection of movies and a music system with i-pad and i-phone docking on the other. In front of the central decorative fireplace are two sumptuous leather sofas to seat 6 and two leather bean-bags. There is contemporary art on the walls along with a long rosewood sideboard and drinks cabinet with fine glassware.
There is a lively sporting theme in the dining room with pictures and framed memorabilia of favourite events. The elegant mahogany dining table to seat 6 even converts to a pool and snooker table. Pretty sideboards store tableware and a selection of games and a tall sash window overlooks a serene private courtyard garden.
An antique desk in the corner of a wide corridor has wi-fi and a laptop. Further along is a small cloak-room with WC and hand basin.
The neat fitted beech kitchen with black granite tops is well organised throughout and includes a Dualit coffee machine. A large range-master cooker has a 5 ring gas hob and electric warming plate, along with two ovens and a pan drawer. Smartly housed are a large fridge and separate freezer, a microwave, a dishwasher and plenty of white crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
Outside is an atmospheric walled courtyard garden with planted borders that are surrounded by tall, handsome Bath stone buildings. A large circular outdoor table has 6 roomy seats and a large gas BBQ for enjoyable alfresco dining.
The downstairs bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with generous en-suite bathrooms. An indulgent master bedroom has a 5' bed and a leather 2-seater sofa from which to watch TV. Two fitted wardrobes, a long chest of drawers and a tall boy provide lots of storage. Past an arched window filtering light from the courtyard above is the vaulted en-suite. In this large cream and white tiled contemporary bathroom, is a large walk-in shower, a WC and hand basin with storage under.
