A beautiful detached house presented in immaculate decorative order on the outskirts of Bath city centre.
Set on the edge of Bath, Gloucester Road is a superb location on the outskirts of the city. Set with good access to local amenities at Larkhall, neighbouring countryside and access to the M4. The city centre of Bath provides a full range of retail outlets together with many amenities including an excellent selection of restaurants, Bath Sports Centre, the Theatre Royal and the Thermae Spa. Complementing this is the open countryside to the rear with many beautiful walks. This contrasting with the closeness of the city centre is, in our opinion, one of the major attractions to this property.
Communication links are excellent with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time from 85 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time from 15 minutes) Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 7.5 miles north.
Ashley House is a beautiful detached family house situated on the edge of the world heritage city of Bath.
