Property description

Tenure: Freehold

17 Lansdown Crescent is a magnificent Grade I listed crescent house situated at the heart of this iconic address. This elegant crescent commands breath-taking views over Bath and its surrounding hills, built between 1789 and 1793 to the plans of John Palmer.

Number 17 sits towards the western end of the crescent and provides over 8,000 sq ft of accommodation in the main house. The proportions are exceptional, providing graceful and versatile living whilst retaining an abundance of period features including exquisite cornicing, feature fire-places and deep sash windows with original shutters.

Upon entering the house there is an entrance hall that leads into a larger hall where the magnificent proportions are immediately apparent. On the ground floor is a large formal dining room with wooden floor and two large south-facing sash windows and a Siena marble fireplace. To the rear of the house and overlooking the large mature garden is the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of units/appliances and an Aga. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and a good-size boot room. A cantilever stone staircase with mahogany handrail leads to the upper floors.
Of particular note are the stunning drawing and withdrawing rooms at first floor level. The drawing room has superb cornicing and a white marble fireplace with a pretty cast iron insert. There are three large sash windows that overlook the Crescent with a fabulous view. A door leads to the withdrawing room to the rear. Again, there is fine cornice and another white marble fireplace.

On the second floor is the principal bedroom suite that benefits from far reaching views, en-suite bathroom, Serpentine marble fireplace and separate dressing room. There is a further double bedroom on the second floor with William Morris tiles around the fireplace and a second bathroom off the half-landing.
There are five bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms on the third and fourth floors.

The proportions, light and ceiling heights remain in the lower ground floor. The eighth bedroom can be found here with large south-facing windows, allowing for a lot of light, with a fireplace, bathroom, full-size snooker room as well as storage rooms and vaults.

At the very rear of the house behind the garden lies the original stone-built coachhouse., which provides more than 1,500sq ft. A versatile space that includes secure gated parking, a garage and gallery.

The first floor has been converted into office accommodation and is ideal for anyone wishing to work from home. It is beautifully presented and includes wooden floors, exposed beams and stonework.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with well-established borders stocked with a variety of plants and shrubs. Mature trees help to provide privacy and seclusion. There is a very private seating area just in front of the coachhouse, the perfect spot to enjoy al fresco dining.
