Cleveland Walk is certainly one of the finest addresses on the south side of the City. Set in an elevated position off Bathwick Hill the road is peaceful, yet the City Centre and Bath Spa railway station are within a mile. Excellent schools locally and National Trust land at the end of the road make Cleveland Walk highly desirable.
Built in 1859 and attributed to Henry Goodridge, Queenborough House is a superb detached Grade II listed villa sitting in just over half an acre of grounds and providing the most wonderful opportunity for a purchaser to modernise and refurbish to their own specification. The house has been loved and lived in by the same family for over 40 years and is now ready for its next stage of ownership.
Entering the house via the front door, you are greeted by a wonderful hallway, off which are all the principal ground floor rooms. To the front of the house there are three reception rooms which interconnect via a loggia. The drawing room has a boxed bay window and has a superb sense of space and light. The further two reception rooms are through rooms, being joined via large wedding doors.
To the left of the hall are the main working areas of the house which include the kitchen, pantry, secondary staircase and utility room.
The secondary staircase takes you up to a double bedroom (bedroom 5 on plan) and a bathroom. Above this is an attic bedroom on the second floor (bedroom 6 on plan). The same staircase goes down from the ground floor to the cellars. These are substantial and divided into mainly three “rooms”; one has the original wine vaults and we understand that the central one was used as an apple store. Subject to the necessary consents being granted, this area could be converted to provide extra living accommodation.
There is a back door which would have formerly been the tradesman’s entrance with access to a small yard with an attached outbuilding useful for bins, recycling and general storage. At the end of the hall is the main staircase and a large cloakroom. There is a further door out to the garden and to the attached greenhouse.
On the first floor, the three main bedrooms span the front of the building and there is a large bedroom 4 and separate wc at the rear. A doorway off the landing leads to the secondary staircase which gives access to bedroom 5 and a bathroom. To the far end of the landing is a family bathroom. Bedroom 6 is found on the top floor.
The gardens and grounds are superb and wrap all around the house. There is a tarmac driveway which sweeps up from the double pillared entrance way on Cleveland Walk. To the side of the house is a double garage.
