Guide Price: £3,000,000 Introduction
A rare opportunity to purchase a magnificent Grade I listed George III town house built in 1808, a masterpiece of John Pinch the elder originally known as the ‘New Sydney Place’, set adjacent to Sydney Gardens. A palace fronted terrace of eleven houses, among the most prestigious of all Late Georgian developments in Bath with bronze plaques recording that Queen Charlotte and King William IV having stayed within the terrace. This enchanting terrace steps downhill with front area railings to street, lamp bracket over throw to entrance and a facade of limestone ashlar. 99 Sydney Place was previously used as an art school inspiring many students by its elegance and abundance of retained period features including columns and the first appearance of distinctive ramped horizontal detailing and the inclusion of very tall windows. The property could benefit from some updating.
