A Grade I listed apartment situated on one of Bath's finest Georgian squares
The Upper Maisonette at 17 St James's Square is a magnificent four window wide property offering in excess of 3,100 sq ft of accommodation over the three main floors. 17 St James's Square benefits from the rare feature of being four sash windows wide, meaning that the principal rooms at the front of the property are even grander than their three-windowed counterparts while the rear section of the property maintains the excellent width. There is a wealth of period features including high ceilings, original fireplaces and window shutters. 17 St James's Square is entered at ground floor level into a beautiful communal hallway. There are two apartments in the building, the other occupying the lower ground floors. The upper maisonette is entered via its own front door from the communal hallway; this leads to an elegant staircase up to the first floor. On the half landing between the ground and first floor is an excellent size library or dining room as well as a cloakroom. The first floor is breathtaking with the four-window wide drawing room to the front, alongside the most magnificent cornicing and a view over the communal gardens of St James's Square. To the rear is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with an extensive range of bespoke fitted base and wall units and plenty of space for a dining table.On the second floor, there are two very spacious main bedrooms and an impressive en suite bathroom.On the top floor are three further double bedrooms, a bathroom and a very useful kitchenette and utility room. On the half landing between the second and third floors is the shower room.
17 St James's Square is located on the desirable north side of the square with southerly views over the communal gardens and - from the upper floors - over the city beyond. Local amenities on St James's Street include a well-regarded delicatessen, chemist, hairdressers and newsagent. Royal Victoria Park with its Botanical Gardens, the Approach Golf Course are all within a few minutes of the property and provide excellent spots for recreational activities or dog walking. The vibrant city centre is just half a mile away. 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).
