This unique and versatile period townhouse is situated in the most sought after address of Sion Hill in Lansdown. The ground floor entrance leads into an elegant and well-proportioned drawing room with the benefit from tall Georgian style sash windows, one being full height and opening directly out to the south facing terrace. A few steps down lead to the bespoke kitchen with hand painted wooden units under a polished work surface. Designed in an L-shape, the first area is for preparation and the large area has further units including an integral oven and hob, plus space for a dining table. With direct access to the courtyard garden this is a charming room. The lower ground floor benefits from exposed flagstone flooring and a feature Bath stone fireplace. This is a comfortable reception room, however with the added bonus of an adjacent shower room this could easily be used as a guest suite. The three further bedrooms are on the upper floors, one housed on the half landing and as the smaller is used as a study. The master bedroom is an elegant bedroom with far reaching southerly views. As well as a range of handmade wardrobes there is a dressing area and an adjacent shower room. The family bathroom has a free standing claw foot bath. Finally on the upper floor there is a charming bedroom suite with a separate sitting area and once again far reaching and impressive views across the city to the south. To complete the picture there is an integral garage which offers a very rare commodity in a period townhouse. This is currently used as practical storage, but could house a small car if desired.
Sion Hill is one of Bath’s most sought after addresses. It is located just north of the city centre and although uphill, is within walking distance via Cavendish Road or across the city’s Approach Golf Course. As well as this local golf course for all the residents to enjoy, further recreational amenities nearby include Lansdown Tennis Club and Bath Race Course. Just below the Approach Golf Course is the beautiful Royal Victoria Park famed for its Botanical Gardens and popular for its play area. In the summer months it is a lovely place to stroll in the early evening and watch the many hot air balloons taking flight. The city offers an array of many acclaimed restaurants, specialist shops, museum and a wonderful programme of festivals that take place throughout the year. There are excellent communication links including a regular train service from Bath Spa Station to London Paddington. This Lansdown address also offers easy access north to J18 of the M4 Motorway approximately 9 miles away.
The pretty enclosed courtyard garden runs the width of the house and is enclosed by smart wooden fencing covered in seasonal climbers. The pennant stone terrace provides plenty of space for a dining area and plenty of pots to create an ever changing garden. A mature Wisteria adds scent. A few steps down lead to a stone built outbuilding. A wonderful and private south facing courtyard garden.
