Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Number 37 St James’s Square is located at the bottom of the square on the east side and is quite remarkable in comparison to many of the other houses having a façade with decorative stone work at ground floor level, together with wrought iron balconettes, lamplight and an archway which leads to the front door.

The property up until the beginning of the 20th century belonged to a chemist in St James’s Square and the ground floor was used as a chemist with a front shop and dispensary to the rear. As a consequence, the front room on the ground floor has a very distinctive decorative Lincrusta ceiling.

The property has accommodation spread over 5 floors, with a wonderful drawing and withdrawing room on the first floor, together with a superb traditional kitchen on the lower ground floor with Aga and the original dresser. On the upper 2 floors the property has the benefit of 4 bedrooms, however there are rooms either on the ground floor or first floor which could be utilised as additional bedrooms.

The present owners whilst living there for the last 15years, have a carried out several improvements and refurbishments to the property including rewiring, replumbing and overhauling of the roof and windows. The external iron work is currently being refurbished, including the balconettes at first floor level.

It should be noted that the property has an attractive courtyard area to the rear, which although officially is not within the curtilage of the property has had established use for in excess of 30 years.

This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a fine Grade I listed property in a superb residential location and a viewing is strongly recommended by the sole agents Cobb Farr.

St James’s Square is one of the finest and most complete Georgian squares within the city of Bath, with all the houses having a wonderful aspect to the front over the gardens providing a charm all of its own. Located close to the world renowned Royal Crescent it was designed by John Palmer circa 1790 and was completed by 1794.

It is a delightful backwater within this beautiful Georgian city and benefits from easy access to the city centre with nearby St James’s Street providing a delicatessen, newsagent, chemist, hairdresser, greengrocers and florist, with the open spaces of Royal Victoria Park and the Approach Golf Course being close by.

The large formal garden within the centre of the square contains some remarkable specimen trees and number 37 is located towards the bottom of the eastern side of the square.

The property is within easy walking distance of the commercial heart of this thriving, vibrant and cosmopolitan city with its extensive chain and independent stores, together with culture and social attractions, including the Abbey, Bath Thermae Spa, Theatre Royal and Bath Rugby.

There is an excellent range of private and state schools, catering for all age groups which include King Edwards, Kingswood, The Royal High, together with Bath University for higher education, all of which are within easy reach. Communications include Bath Spa railway station providing services direct to London Paddington and the South West. Whilst access to the M4 motorway junction 18 is approximately 10 miles to the north.
