Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Ivy Cottage is a stunning period home, bursting with character features, that occupies a generous and mature south westerly facing plot, in an idyllic secret location close to the town centre on the Bath side of Bradford on Avon.

Beautifully presented throughout - and on the market for the first time in 25 years - the property has a stunning light and airy feel thanks to the wonderful outlook to the front, enjoying far reaching views across the town and beyond. The ample accommodation is well proportioned and is complemented by a self-contained studio/annexe, currently in use as a hugely popular Airbnb, generating a healthy return for the owners.

Hidden away from the road and less than 10 minutes' walk from the railway station, the property comprises three bedrooms: two doubles, both of which take full advantage of the southerly view towards Salisbury Plain, and a good size single that is currently used as a home office. There is also a luxurious bathroom on the first floor, incorporating a separate shower cubicle. The ground floor showcases an impressive living room with feature fireplace, with the second reception room flowing through to a good size kitchen/diner with AGA, invaluable utility room, handy downstairs cloakroom and the fabulous conservatory. Overlooking the garden, the conservatory is the perfect spot for entertaining family and friends - or perhaps relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine whilst appreciating your surroundings.

The self-contained studio/annexe has a charming courtyard area to the front with enough room for a table and chairs, flower pots and tubs. The light-filled double-bedded main room features a high vaulted beamed ceiling, and the studio is completed with a smartly fitted kitchenette and shower room.

Externally the property features a gorgeous large, south-facing mature garden. This is well stocked with a variety of trees and shrubs and includes a well-established pond, containing a variety of fish and favoured by frogs and dragonflies. The garden was featured in this year's special "Secret Gardens of Bradford on Avon" (see below for online link).

It's not often that a home of this calibre comes to market, and you could be waiting a very long time to get another opportunity like it, so delay at your peril!

The property occupies a fantastic central, yet peaceful, position on the Bath side of Bradford on Avon. It is just a short walk from the town's wide range of shops and local cafes, highly regarded restaurants and public houses such as the Weaving Shed and Timbrell's Yard, as well as other amenities including the town library and swimming pool. Also within a few minutes' walk are the River Avon, Kennet & Avon Canal and mile upon mile of open country walks. And the railway station offers direct services to Bath (12 mins), Bristol (30 mins), Salisbury and London Waterloo.


There is a shared access path to the rear of the property with a neighbouring cottage which does not impact on any of the garden areas.

The studio has been run with marked success as an Airbnb. The listing can be seen here by clicking on the link below

The garden was featured in the 2020 "Secret Gardens of Bradford on Avon" (filmed in June). The accompanying video of the garden can be seen by clicking the link below.
