Nine Somerset and Bath detached houses with surprisingly affordable price tags

It’s the ultimate ‘you’ve made it’ moment – moving into a proper detached family home.

It’s all that extra breathing room and being able to let go of the concern your neighbours will hear you through the wall.

Detatched homes often tend to have bigger gardens and offer greater scope for extensions, but that usually means a premium in price.

Being able to afford to buy a detached house may seem like a distant dream to many.

But you may be surprised by the price of some of the detached homes in Bath and Somerset.

Maybe they won’t be bought by a first time buyer – but perhaps a second or third?

They’re not quite in the region of the £150k list we did a few weeks ago – but they’re not all so lofty and unimaginable.

Here are a nine currently on the market.

2 bed in Bridgwater for £159,950

Clarks Road, Bridgwater
Clarks Road, Bridgwater

At just £159,950 this detached home might even be picked up by a first-time buyer.

The two up two down looks rather cute from the outside but it is surprisingly spacious inside.

It includes a garage, driveway and an easy-to-maintain patio garden.

1 bed in Bath for £269,000

94 Holloway, Bath
94 Holloway, Bath

Ok, so £269,000 may sound like a lot for a one bed house – but this is Bath we’re talking about. It’s pretty much a miracle to find a private detached home for that.

And it sits just five to 10 minutes’ walk from the city centre.

It may not look like much from the outside, but inside the brand new conversion simply gleams.

Pyramid roof lanterns make the house surprisingly bright to match the contemporary finish.

The spotlighting in the bathroom belongs in a spa and the kitchen has lovely oak and glass worktops.

This Yeovil home is beautifully finished inside.

Built in 2013 by Bloor Homes this stylish three bedroom home still has that fresh home feel – and it’s still under its 10 year NHBC warranty.

The kitchen is particularly lovely with all integrated appliances and it has a garden that isn’t overlooked.

2 bed in Bath for £290,000

Langdon Road, Bath
Langdon Road, Bath

This corner plot detached two bedroom house is tucked away at the bottom of a cul de sac and has views down into the city.

The home has a garage, driveway, gardens to three sides and even a rear conservatory.

As a matter of taste, you might want to get around to swapping out the bedrooms’ carpet and updating the kitchen. But on the whole it appears to be in good condition.

4 bed in Bruton for £315,000

Lark Close, Bruton
Lark Close, Bruton

This one’s a bit of a jump up from the others in this list. But the idea of being able to purchase a huge four bedroom detached home for £315,000 must be unbelievable for those from more expensive property markets.

The nearly new home is situated within easy reach of the town centre and has views of fields to the front and partial rural views to the rear and of Alfred’s Tower at Stourhead in the distance.
