Tyning Road, Bathampton, Bath: Guide Price £1,600,000
A beautifully finished brand new contemporary home (c.3024 sq.ft) set within a generous south west facing garden and plot with delightful views over fields to the rear. One of only a handful of highly functional homes on a prestigious ‘Charlcombe Homes’ development at Bathampton within walking distance of amenities and about 25 minutes walk from Bath city centre.
PLOT 9 (TYPE A) Plot 9, Tyning Meadows, is one of only 10 new homes in the development and sits within a generous level plot with a south west facing rear garden with lovely views over fields to the rear. The property offers spacious well appointed accommodation extending to c.3024 sq.ft to include five bedrooms and four reception areas over two floors. Each home is demarcated by their orientation, handing, internal layout and use of a variety of materials, all creating a distinct "personality" with each plot. Variations in external materials further distinguish each design, particularly around the front entrances, so that no two adjacent houses will appear the same
Architecturally the designs are unashamedly modern in concept but also echo the solid and trusted Edwardian "villa"- in the strongly horizontal proportions- and deep eaves overhang on the low pitched slate roofs. Further diversity in design and visual variation is delivered by with hipped roofs and the other gabled, conceivably giving it a slightly more contemporary look.
For details on the very high specification, please refer to the brochure whilst modern high tech features have been incorporated at every opportunity to provide comfortable and high standards of living with the emphasis being on a low cost and low maintenance home.
DESCRIPTION The houses are situated in a picturesque semi-rural Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Each property offers a similar level of accommodation, with five bedrooms and four reception areas over two floors.
The entrance offers a spacious double height reception hall. The largest living area on the ground floor is the open plan kitchen/dining/garden room which has sliding doors leading into the garden. Adjacent to this is the separate drawing room that features a fireplace providing a cosy feel although still large enough to use as a versatile entertaining space.
The media room is a flexible space which could equally be a playroom, library or large home office. There is, however, also a separate study. Off the hall there is a good sized cloakroom and coat cupboard, and a large utility/boot room.
The first floor provides five double bedrooms. The master suite is substantial in size and includes a large bathroom with double basins, spacious shower enclosure and bath. The accommodation is served by a separate dressing room.
Each plot benefits from a large detached double garage with full power, lighting and an electrically powered sectional door. The area above the double garage within the steeply pitched roof has the potential to be converted into a studio with en-suite shower room.
TYNINGS MEADOW Tyning Meadows is a high quality development of 10 detached family residences by Charlcombe Homes, Bath’s premier "boutique" housebuilder. Situated at the base of the Limpley Stoke Valley and nestled below the surrounding downs, the site is within the Green Belt and the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a place with panoramic views including to Solsbury Hill, immortalized by Peter Gabriel’s song of the same name and to Sally in the Woods to the east.
Tyning Road is a country lane running between banked hedgerows and frequented by walkers accessing the surrounding countryside. As the lane enters the development it runs parallel with the Westbury branch railway line which is screened from the site by a 3 metre high extensively landscaped bund. The Bathampton Meadow and Oxbow Wetland beyond and below the railway attract a proliferation of wildlife to the area including some 16 species of dragonflies, 18 species of butterfly, deer and abundant birdlife.
To the west the open outlook is across farmland protected from development as part of Green Belt and within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as is the land to the north which additionally incorporates a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
The design concept for the development has focused on creating a low density semi-rural "edge of village" setting. To achieve this, the plots have been formed and arranged to be much larger than one might normally find in modern developments, particularly in Bath and its surrounds. This has allowed more tree and shrub planting between and around houses which, along with maturing garden planting, will engender a "leafy" feel and look, and further encourage local wildlife.
SITUATION The picturesque village of Bathampton, on the edge of the historic City of Bath, straddles the Kennet & Avon Canal and the River Avon. Tyning Meadows lies within close walking distance to the historic St Nicholas Church, the famous George Inn and the Ofsted Outstanding Bathampton Primary School. The village centre is a short distance in the other direction. The all-weather canal towpath provides a delightful walking or cycling route offering relatively level access into the centre of Bath, approximately 2.5 miles away. In the other direction the canal towpath continues towards the town of Bradford on Avon and beyond, through Wiltshire and into Berkshire. There is a frequent bus service to and from Bath, with a bus stop approximately 5 minutes’ walk from the site. Bath Spa train station is within 3 miles offering regular half hour services to Paddington reachable within approximately 1½ hours whilst impending electrification will shorten journey times. The M4 is less than ten miles to the north, whilst to the south, the A36 offers routes to Southampton, the M3 and Devon & Cornwall via the A303. Bath has an enviable range of independent and state schools for children of all ages. There are a number of impressive schools in close proximity and easily accessed from Tyning Meadows including Bathampton Primary and Bathwick St Mary’s Primary. For secondary schooling the state schools of Beechen Cliff, Hayesfield and Ralph Allen are well regarded, with excellent independent options offered by Prior Park College, Monkton Combe, Royal High School, Kingswood and King Edwards. For higher education, Bath boasts two first-class universities at University of Bath and Bath Spa University.
