Introduction
A stunning example of a rarely available Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse in this commanding & delightful Crescent enjoying the most spectacular views over the Approach Golf Course and the City beyond. Enjoying particularly elegant and well proportioned accommodation over 5 floors.
The History of Cavendish Crescent.
Cavendish Crescent was designed by John Pinch and built for William Broom (a spectacular builder) between 1817 and 1830. The Crescent comprised 11 houses of equal size originally and combines to form a confident elevation of simple Eighteenth Century elegance. The fronts of the house are identical architecturally with the entrance doors set within arched openings emphasized by restricted stone surrounds. The elevation is unified by strong horizontal lines by the first floor plantland, the stringcourse at 3rd floor level and the main cornice with parapet above. The first floor windows have segmental balconies of trellis design in ornate iron. During the 20th Century, most houses were divided to create apartments and Number 2 offers a rare opportunity to acquire a complete Town House.
Location
Cavendish Crescent is conveniently situated on the lower slopes of Lansdown on Sion Hill only 10 minutes walk to centre of Bath.
