Sydney Buildings is an exceptionally sought-after residential location on the lower slopes of Bathwick and offers some fine examples of Georgian and early Victorian townhouses. This delightful home enjoys the enviable position of being close to the Kennet & Avon canal.
There are local shops and amenities available nearby on Bathwick Hill, while the city of Bath is within approximately half a mile.
Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture that offers a wide variety of cultural, leisure, sports and shopping facilities along with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time from 75 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time from 15 mins).
Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 11 miles north.
58 Sydney Buildings is a three bedroom detached property dating back from the 1930's and has been in our client's family for nearly all that time. The property has versatile accommodation over two floors with potential to expand (subject to the necessarily consents and checks being obtained and made).
You enter the property into a spacious entrance hall with staircase to right leading to the first floor as well as cloakroom. There are two reception rooms, separated by double doors which allow the rooms to be opened together or closed off. There is access via a sliding glazed door to a balcony which runs the width of the back of the house. The kitchen has a beautiful Welsh dresser as well as a pantry. There is also access via a side porch to the garden.
On the first floor are three excellent size bedrooms with views over Bathwick Meadows to the front and the city and beyond to the rear. In addition there is a family bathroom. Accessed independently from the rear of the property is an undercroft, currently providing useful storage.
There is a pretty garden to the front of the property with steps and a path leading to the front door. The rear gardens are of particular note and are surprisingly extensive considering this premium central location. There are predominantly laid to lawn and stretch down the valley nearly as far as the brook separating Sydney Buildings with Horseshoe Walk.
Please note that the boundary with the neighboring house is not easily defined via the photographs and the property's garden is approximately the same width as the house. Please also note that the bottom section of the garden (highlighted by the green boundary on the plan) is an unregistered title.
