Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

The portico stone entrance complete with lantern above and intricate fan light above the front door illustrates the beautiful Georgian details of this fine townhouse. On entering the communal hall, a most beautiful spiral cantilevered stone staircase reaches above and below this fine city home. This hall is currently being refurbished by the house and one now has the opportunity to refurbish the interior of the first floor apartment.

The glamorous staircase rises to the first floor where double doors open into the apartment's private reception hall and inner sitting room. The high proportions are embellished with corniced ceiling and a glazed sash window opens up into a pretty sun room with three walls of full height windows; a charming and unique reading room. From this central reception a beautifully curved detailed door opens into the most glorious drawing room with we understand a sprung floor. The detail of the cornice and ceiling rose is of the finest pattern and three full height windows open onto a wrought iron balcony overlooking Sydney Gardens. A side window adds even further light and the impressive marble fireplace centres the room's amazing proportions. Sliding wedding doors open into what was the with-drawing room and now an impressive bedroom, once again the master craftsman in the 19th Century must have enjoyed showing off his skills in the intricate plasterwork of the cornicing and ceiling rose. A cleverly designed en-suite bathroom has been added without losing the proportion of the room. A small bedroom, or dressing room, is located between the bathroom and a galley kitchen which could be redesigned to create a sleek modern facility.

George III's Queen Charlotte came to Bath to take a course of the waters and stayed in this house in 1817. As the original ballroom in this stunning Grade I Listed townhouse this has to be one of the most exclusive first floor apartments within our wonderful and historic Georgian city.
