Number 10a is a beautifully restored Grade I listed Georgian townhouse. The property retains many of its original features and following a complete refurbishment in 2002 by Nash Partnership and Emery's, its accommodation is versatile and is laid out over six floors.
On entering Number 10a, one is greeted by a large, elegant entrance hall with stone flooring, a fireplace and impressive cornices and friezes. The size and styling of this hallway is believed to be unique in Great Pulteney Street. To the rear of the ground floor is a spacious dual aspect sitting room with lovely views across the gardens. A practical utility room and cloakroom completes the accommodation on this level.
Overlooking Great Pulteney Street on the first floor is the drawing room, with its beautifully detailed cornicing and a cast iron fire with original Robert Adam surround. The proportions of this commanding room are of a domestic scale and make it ideal for entertaining and relaxing. Also situated on this floor is the spacious study which could alternatively be used as a fifth bedroom.
A further flight of stairs advances to the principal suite floor. There are two sash windows which allow light to flood into the elegant principal bedroom while the stone fireplace and cornice add interest. From this room there are delightful views to be enjoyed down William Street, across the recreation ground to the hills beyond. The principal bathroom is of particular note and comprises an elegant suite including walk-in shower, bath, WC and basin.
A sweeping staircase rises to the top floor where two more bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found.
The lower ground and garden floors of the property have also been restored to a high standard. The spacious kitchen-come-dining room with its granite surfaces offers many modern appliances, including freestanding cooker and fridge/freezer. The rest of the accommodation at this level comprises a garden room with a period fireplace and French doors leading to the garden, while at the front of the property there is a library/family room with extensive library shelving and storage. There is access to the front courtyard and two vaults beyond.
The garden floor provides a further bedroom with built-in cupboards and French doors into the garden. To the front of the property there is an exercise room, sauna and a shower room.
The garden has been landscaped in a Georgian style to complement the house, featuring a low maintenance garden with a variety of shrubs, plants and trees. At the end of the garden, steps lead to the secure garage with electric door (shared with number 11 Great Pulteney Street) where two cars can be parked in tandem, with access into Henrietta Mews and Henrietta Park beyond.
