DESCRIPTION

The property forms the centre piece of this attractive and prominent terrace of Grade II Listed houses, built in 1780 and offering generous and beautifully presented accommodation across five floors. One is immediately drawn to the feel of space and volume throughout the house and especially on the ground and first floors with its large reception hall, open plan kitchen/dining room, and open double drawing room, creating an excellent living and entertaining space surrounded by a wealth of period features. The lower ground floor has an informal sitting room that is currently used as a cinema room. The large bedrooms (master en-suite) on the upper floors enjoy incredible views across the city. The property opens onto a lovely enclosed garden with decked patio areas to enjoy the sunshine and watch the sun set over Bath.
