Portland Villa is located within the northern end of the terrace known as Northampton Street, a quiet yet central residential area. There are a number of amenities located close by at St James Square including a chemist, a delicatessen, a green grocer and florist. Two very well regarded gastro pubs and the pretty retail street called Margaret's Buildings are also nearby.
The World Heritage city of Bath famous for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture provides a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities and numerous restaurants and bars. Bath has a mainline railway link to London (Paddington) and Junction 18 of the M4 motorway is approximately 10 miles distant. There are a number of very well regarded schools nearby in both the public and state sector.
Portland Villa is believed to have been originally built in the late 1700's with a Victorian extension having been added at a later date. This handsome property is a beautifully presented family home. The accommodation is arranged over four floors and provides extensive and flexible accommodation with the benefit of a potential self-contained one bedroom apartment in the lower ground floor (subject to any necessary consents).
On the ground floor is an elegant bay fronted drawing room to the front and a stunning bespoke kitchen/dining room with a steel bridge leading to the rear garden and sun terrace. On this level there is also a cloakroom and rear access from the inner hallway to the garden. On the lower ground floor, which can be accessed conveniently both from the ground floor and externally, there is a utility room, a spacious sitting room/TV room, a double bedroom and a high specification bathroom. There is also a courtyard garden that can be accessed from both the utility room and bedroom and two useful storage vaults. On the first floor there are two spacious double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study, a dressing area and bathroom. There is a further mezzanine wet room and three double bedrooms on the second floor, along with another very well appointed family bathroom.
