Location

The Crescent is unusual in that it borders extensive parking and a golf course with both rural and urban walks straight from the door. Cavendish Crescent sits at the upper end of Cavendish Place, just before Park Street and next to St.James’s Square which offers a variety of shops including a newsagent, chemist, hairdressers, delicatessen, two popular public houses as well as a nearby florists and greengrocers. The Approach Golf Course and Royal Victoria Park with its famous Botanical Gardens are nearby, along with the many cultural, recreational and leisure facilities offered by the city of Bath.

Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage and provides an extensive range of business, entertainment and cultural facilities along with two universities. There are well regarded schools in both the state and independent sectors and a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approximately 90 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approximately 15 mins). Junction 18 of the M4 motorway is about 9 miles to the north and Bristol International airport is some 20 miles to the north west.

Description

HISTORY
Cavendish Crescent was designed by John Pinch and built for William Broom (a speculative builder) between 1817 and 1830. The crescent runs to 11 houses of equal size originally. The fronts of the houses are identical architecturally with the entrance doors set within arched openings emphasised by restricted stone surrounds.

The elevation is unified by strong horizontal lines by the first floor platland: the stringcourse at third 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 flats and number 2 offers a rare chance to acquire a complete house.

DESCRIPTION
Cavendish Crescent stands above its lawn (residents’ garden) on a high pavement and is Bath’s most delightful crescent. Listed Grade II, number 2 has a pretty canopy porch above the broad panelled front door. The stunning façade has the classic trio of sash windows running across the first floor and above-arch cornices, which link the house and unite the symmetry of the crescent.

On entering the house, one is immediately struck by the elegant proportions of the rooms for which Georgian architects are famed. There are large sash windows, high ceilings, fine chimney pieces and ornate ceiling mouldings.

The house has recently been the subject of a refurbishment programme and is presented in excellent decorative order.

The grand reception hall has a stone tiled floor and vaulted ceiling. A magnificent stone staircase with mahogany hand rail, rises to the upper floors.

On the ground floor is a superb dining room that enjoys a good outlook over the gardens. A fireplace sits in the heart of the room and stone tiled flooring continues into the kitchen which is accessed via the wedding doors. This gives the flexibility of having a large open plan space or more intimate formal dining room.

Of particular note are the stunning first floor drawing rooms; light floods in and the views across the Approach Golf Course to the south west are superb.

On the second floor is a fine master suite as well as a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms each with en suite facilities lie on the third floor. The rooms to the front of the house have panoramic views over the Approach Golf Course and Royal Victoria Park.

The lower ground floors can provide additional reception rooms and bedrooms as well as be used as a separate apartment/ancillary accommodation to the main house.

OUTSIDE
Outside there is an established and hard landscaped garden to the rear.
