Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Derriads House is one of those properties which you really do need to view to fully appreciate its location, style and charm. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a piece of local history within easy reach of the town centre. This very well presented property forms part of a 18th century Grade II Listed house which was skillfully converted into five properties about 30 years ago. The property offers spacious and substantial accommodation arranged over three floors ideal for modern day family living. The property is accessed through an impressive communal hall and has many period features throughout such as high ceilings and sash windows. The ground floor accommodation comprises entrance hallway, sitting room, dining room, kitchen / breakfast room and cloakroom. To the first floor is a spacious reception landing area, three good size bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. The attic has been converted by the current owners to provide a beautiful master bedroom and wet room with a useful study/mezzanine accessed via the bedroom overlooking the first floor landing. Externally there are attractive and well maintained gardens which are communal although the owner advises each of the five properties respect each others space and use their 'own' section of the gardens. In addition there is a double carport and ample visitor parking. The property is offered with NO ONWARD CHAIN and an internal viewing is highly recommended.

From the town centre proceed out on the A4 Bath Road, turn right at the Pheasant roundabout onto Hungerdown Lane and then turn left at the first roundabout into Derriads Lane. Continue along Derriads Lane and Derriads House can be found on the left hand side in a small courtyard setting.
