This truly unique courtyard garden maisonette occupies the two lower floors of a Grade I Listed townhouse within the iconic architectural gem of the Circus. One can enter from the smart communal hallway on the ground floor or alternatively, steps lead down to the front courtyard and your own front door opening into the reception hall. The kitchen is centred around a substantial island housing well designed units under a polished granite surface. There is a four oven Aga adding to the appeal plus a glazed door opening out to the courtyard. The drawing room has a dual aspect and a central fireplace with an open fire, a very rare find in city centre apartments. There is access to the attractive walled garden. Also on this floor is a bedroom and shower room. An additional feature is the downstairs open plan study area providing plenty of space for those needing a home office but not wishing to use one of the three bedrooms. There are two further bedrooms on this level plus the family bathroom with free standing bath and walk-in shower designed to make you feel like you are in a spa. A wonderful city home which lends itself to the summer months due to its lovely walled garden, and in the winter, the open fire and Aga create the cosiness of a cottage.
The prestigious Circus is one of Bath's most iconic architectural Georgian addresses designed by John Wood, the Elder. In close proximity are numerous city centre attractions including nearby Assembly Rooms and the Royal Crescent plus a wide range of shopping, dining and cultural amenities.
Bath is a World Heritage city famed for its Roman Heritage and this wonderful Georgian architecture. Communication links from the city are excellent, with a direct rail link from Bath Spa to London Paddington (approx. 90 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (approx. 15 mins), whilst Bristol International Airport is approximately 19 miles to the south east and M4 Junction 18 is 9 miles to the north.
The attractive courtyard garden to the rear can be accessed via the drawing room or main bedroom. The wonderful Bath stone walls create a back drop for climbing plants within raised borders. The use of container planting also adds to the stylish effect. With a central pergola also covered with climbers to provide privacy this is a true delight. To the front the private courtyard benefits from three vaults, one housing a handy laundry room.
