A superb Grade II listed townhouse of excellent proportions overlooking a Georgian garden square

Location

Catharine Place is a secluded garden square that was laid out in 1774 - 1784 by John Wood the Younger and lies to the north-east of the Royal Crescent and north-west of the Circus. The central residents' only garden is enclosed by railings and was restored in the 1990's to provide a tranquil, private location within reach of the city centre.

There is easy access to local shops and amenities located nearby in the pedestrianised street of Margaret's Buildings and in St James' Square and the centre of Bath is within half a mile. Bath is a World Heritage City renowned for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage and provides a full range of cultural, leisure and business amenities including an excellent selection of restaurants, the Theatre Royal and the Thermae Spa. Bath Spa Station provides direct access to London Paddington (journey time approx 90 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 mins). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 11 miles north.

Description

19 Catharine Place stands on the corner of one of Bath's most notable Georgian garden squares. While various works have been carried out to provide comfortable modern day living, the home has retained its original charm and character with cast iron fireplaces, ornate ceiling roses and cornices, butlers tables outside the drawing room and master bedroom and functional window shutters to all windows in the reception rooms.

The property benefits from a dual aspect to the north and east which affords an excellent amount of light and a feeling of airiness. The generously-sized accommodation is arranged over five floors. On ground floor level, the welcoming entrance hall leads to an elegant sitting room, a study and cloakroom. The large kitchen, which is well equipped with modern fixtures and fittings, granite work surfaces and a handsome four-oven Aga, is situated at basement level and offers direct access to the courtyard that runs around the outside of this property. Also at this level is a spacious dining room, a utility room and vault, with further storage accessible off the courtyard.

On the first floor is a drawing room of excellent proportions with a marble fireplace, enjoying a delightful outlook over the Catharine Place garden square. There is also a withdrawing room with attractive feature fireplace.

Two further double bedrooms on the third floor benefit from excellent ceiling heights and attractive exposed timber beams. There is also a shower room at this level.
