1808 Georgian Townhouse in Bath, England

Listing Description

"A rare opportunity to purchase a magnificent Grade I listed George III town house built in 1808, a masterpiece of John Pinch the elder originally known as the ‘New Sydney Place’, set adjacent to Sydney Gardens. A palace fronted terrace of eleven houses, among the most prestigious of all Late Georgian developments in Bath with bronze plaques recording that Queen Charlotte and King William IV having stayed within the terrace. This enchanting terrace steps downhill with front area railings to street, lamp bracket over throw to entrance and a facade of limestone ashlar. 99 Sydney Place was previously used as an art school inspiring many students by its elegance and abundance of retained period features including columns and the first appearance of distinctive ramped horizontal detailing and the inclusion of very tall windows. The property could benefit from some updating."

    I wonder who the artist is that owns it now. I was surprised that the interior was not as magnificent as I expected for such a home and is quite eclectic. But once I saw it was an artist’s residence (and apparently a former art school), I understood why. This is phenomenal. An original “if only the walls could talk, imagine what they have seen” house. I would be interested in seeing the kitchens. It is certainly a large place at 7745 sq ft. I would have loved to see more photos, or even better, photos after the new owner renovates.

    I hope the remodeling will not be heavy-handed. I’m appalled at what has been done to many venerable European hotels in the name of modernization.
