A beautiful garden apartment in popular Georgian terrace, one mile from Bath city centre.
The House8 Grosvenor Place is a Grade I listed Georgian town house, divided into five apartments. The garden apartment has its own private entrance via steps down into a front courtyard. The entrance hall is light and airy thanks to its large windows and glass door, and is currently being used as a home office. The large vault has been converted (with a Delta membrane system) into a soundproof media/cinema room, offering a flexible space. A hallway runs along the full depth of the house to the bedrooms and bathrooms on this floor. The principal bedroom has views to the south-facing garden through two large sash windows with shutters and a modern en suite designed by Ripples Bathrooms. Bedroom two also has large sash windows - these overlook the courtyard - and there's shower room at the end of the hall.Natural stone stairs lead down to the garden level accommodation, where there's an open-plan living room with period fireplace, a recessed dining area with banquette seating and exposed stone wall, and a door opening onto the garden terrace. The bespoke kitchen has hand painted units and wooden worktops, and is well equipped with generous storage and Bosch appliances. On this floor, there's also a guest WC. A utility room is accessed externally (from the rear terrace), and houses the gas boiler and hot water tank, along with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There's built-in storage throughout this well-maintained apartment, as well as contemporary radiators and underfloor heating in the en suite bathroom.Gardens and GroundsA south-facing paved sun terrace spans the width of the property to the rear, with space for al fresco dining, and leads into a landscaped walled garden (designed by Brett Hardy) with attractive planting, mature shrubs and array of fruit and ornamental trees. A winding path continues to the far end of the garden, where a secluded, gravelled area is the perfect setting for additional seating and barbecue.
Grosvenor Place is an elegant terrace of 41 Grade I listed Georgian town houses, built around 1790 by John Eveleigh and located approximately one mile level walk from Bath city centre. There's easy access to the Kennett and Avon Canal and beautiful open countryside to the rear of the terrace on Grosvenor Bridge Road. Local amenities and a thriving community can be accessed in nearby Larkhall village: the 'high street' has a selection of shops - a delicatessen, supermarket, book store, pharmacy and more - plus two pubs and a café. There's also a local theatre, community hall and several schools for all ages. Nearby Alice Park is a popular place for locals with a play park, tennis courts and café. Grosvenor Place is well placed for commuters with easy access to the M4 and Bath Spa station. There are good pre and primary schools locally, in addition to an excellent selection of both independent and state schools in Bath and the surrounding areas.
