The Royal Crescent is Bath's most famous and recognisable Georgian terrace.

Number 20 is well placed in the Western half of the crescent and enjoys spectacular views across the crescent lawn to the city. The Royal Crescent is conveniently situated on the edge of the city centre, allowing walking access to all of Bath's cultural and social amenities.
A superb Grade I listed house. The entire property is now offered for sale with the basement available by separate negotation and under separate ownership.
20 Royal Crescent is Listed Grade I and has been recently refurbished throughout with the addition of a newly constructed kitchen/breakfast room to the rear overlooking the garden. The main house accommodation is arranged over four storeys, from the ground floor up, with the main reception rooms on the ground and first floors and the bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper floors. The current owners have taken great care to restore the house to it's former glory with the majority of it's original features retained. The level of finish is of the highest standard in both decorative and structural elements combining to create one of Bath's most exceptional townhouses.
