Queen Charlotte, consort to George III, lived in 93 Sydney Place in 1817 when in Bath to take in the waters and is believed to have used the first floor as a ballroom during her stay.
The property is accessed through imposing double doors in to the entrance hall, formerly the receiving room, with tall ceilings and ornate cornices, and one of three bespoke chandeliers designed for the property by the current owner. Adjacent is a rare and elegant first floor conservatory sun room built above the Doric porch entrance to the building. The hall leads through a beautiful curved door in to the stunning drawing room (30ft x 21ft), with dual aspect, 14ft ceilings and three tall sash windows and French doors leading out to a balcony with open views over Sydney Gardens and the Holburne Museum. The proportions of this once-ballroom are breath-taking and the property has been painstakingly restored to its former glory by the current owner, with particular care taken to restore the original features of the building. The ornate cornices and ceiling roses are believed to be original and are still in immaculate condition throughout.
Set within the drawing room, is a bespoke walnut kitchen with marble worktop, that has been sympathetically designed to mirror the curvature of the room and the beautiful curved door leading back to the entrance hall. Connecting the drawing room with the main bedroom are a pair of imposing 10ft wedding doors. These doors can still be opened fully to create a dramatic front-to-back aspect through the property.
The bedroom is similarly impressive, measuring 25ft x 19ft, and complete with original cornice, picture rail and ceiling rose. The en suite bathroom is positioned at the rear of the room with stylish porcelain ware and a roll top bath with views to the rear overlooking St Mary the Virgin church, Bathwick. There is currently live planning consent to reinstate the original balcony which was once positioned across the rear of the first floor of the building (Ref:18/03060/FUL). Bedroom two is accessed from the entrance hall and comprises a walnut mezzanine sleeping area, which houses within it a beautifully designed en suite shower room. The property also has a separate utility room accessed from the communal hallway, on the half landing below.
