The Grade I-listed home sits on one of Britain’s best Georgian residential squares (behind Bath’s famous Royal Crescent) and was built by architect John Palmer between 1790 and 1794. Its Bath stone facade features smooth corinthian pilasters, sash windows a mansard roof.
Interiors of the townhouse – listed with Inigo for £2.75m – combine Georgian proportions with modern colour and touches. The first-floor living room has floor-to-ceiling sash windows on one wall and an ornamental fireplace set with a wood-burning stove – a combination of traditional and modern. Furniture is bright and eclectic, with maximalist patterned throws and cushions adding a contemporary feel to the lofty spaces.
The kitchen and breakfast room and separate wood-panelled dining room fill the lower-ground level. Teal coloured panelling, stone walls, and parquet flooring can be found in this jewel of a room, which is designed for entertaining.
Bedrooms – five in total – occupy the upper storeys of the Georgian property, each mixing stone fireplaces period features with bespoke cabinetry and sumptuous heritage colours.
Residents have access to the square’s communal, gated garden, but the townhouse has its own garden walled garden at the rear with stepped stone terraces and plant beds. It also provides access to the High Common park behind the house.
