Portland House is a superb Grade II listed townhouse that has beautifully-proportioned rooms arranged over 5 floors. The house has been carefully and sympathetically decorated by the current owners to a very high standard of finish with considerable style and attention to detail.
Whilst the principal reception rooms offer a distinct feeling of grandeur, the house manages to retain a comfortable feel. There are high ceilings and large windows which enhance the generous proportions, whilst many other period features remain, such as fireplaces, ceiling cornices and shutters.
The accommodation is spread over five floors with the main living areas including kitchen, dining room, sitting room, TV room and drawing room on the ground and first floors and the bedrooms and bathrooms on upper and lower ground floors.
The principal suite occupies the whole of the second floor with a spacious bedroom, bathroom and dressing room. The top floor, which is ideal for children, comprises three bedrooms and a bathroom, with the lower ground floor having a further two bedrooms (one en suite) and a bathroom which is ideal for guests.
Lansdown Terrace has panoramic views over the city and onwards to the surrounding countryside. The house faces mainly south which makes for very light rooms.
To the front of the house is a raised terrace with access to the garden which is to the side and rear of the house. The garden has been mostly levelled with steps leading up from the kitchen to a good sized lawned area flanked by raised beds and two paved patio areas to the side and rear of the garden.
From Queen Square proceed up Gay Street and follow the road around to George Street. At the junction turn left into Lansdown Road. Follow this road up past the right hand turning for Camden Crescent and Lansdown Terrace is located on the right hand side after a small rank of shops.
