The Old Rectory is a double fronted Grade II Listed city home in a superb position, just moments from the grandeur of Queen Square. A spacious four bedroom home in such a convenient location is always very popular. Perfect as a family home or maybe a holiday home investment, the house has been beautifully refurbished with many retained period features, enhanced by bespoke fittings and a smart interior design. Recently laid parquet flooring, handmade cabinetry and plantation shutters add to the appeal alongside well-proportioned rooms, sash windows and period fireplaces.
The elegant drawing room is of note, with its attractive cast iron period fireplace with working gas fire and bay sash window to the front. A home office leads into the garden room and out to the courtyard. The lower floor has a smart kitchen, with plenty of room for a large dining table. The four charming bedrooms are served by two bathrooms, one with a free-standing claw foot bath, as well as a shower cubicle. With plenty of practical ancillary rooms, vaults and storage areas, this is truly a period gem which also has the benefit of a walled courtyard. With a back drop of the mellow Bath stone walls, climbing plants and potted shrubs create a perfect spot for outside dining.
English Heritage has labelled Charlotte Street as a ‘Late version of Georgian terrace in Bath, practically unaltered externally’. It is in a superb position in the very heart of Bath, just off Queen Square which is a destination in itself hosting the annual Bath Boules Festival and visiting French and artisan markets. Within a level walk are the excellent cultural and leisure amenities of the historic city centre, including many fine restaurants and specialist shops, museums, art galleries and theatres. With a variety of historical sites, the city also plays host to a variety of cultural events, including Bath Literature Festival and Bath International Music Festival. Interspersed around the city are beautiful parks and public areas and this period home is a stroll away from the impressive Royal Victoria Park, which encompasses the lawns of The Royal Crescent and the Botanical Gardens. For the commuter, the M4 is ten miles to the north via Junction 18 and one can also walk to Bath Spa Railway Station (London Paddington 90 minutes).
