A fine Grade I listed Georgian townhouse with far reaching views
A beautiful and wonderfully located Georgian crescent, with far reaching views. Camden Crescent was built by John Eveleigh in 1788 and is positioned on the slopes of Lansdown overlooking the city centre. Set high above the roadside, the property has striking curb-appeal in a rare elevated positon. Arranged over five floors and approximately 5,800sqft, the house accommodation is substantial. The grand entrance hall is impressive and retains much of its original features, including a fine cantilevered stone staircase, and doors leading through to the beautiful and welcoming kitchen/breakfast room. This floor offers a fine view to the front of the house as well as over the rear garden, along with a walk-in pantry, utility/boot room, separate WC and store room. The quality of the architectural details throughout the house are greatly enhanced by the unspoilt originality of the property. The elegant rooms provide wonderful family living comprising the kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor, the glorious drawing room and withdrawing room on the first floor and a study on the half landing between.
The second floor provides the principle bedroom with wonderful views of the Avon Valley and a generous family bathroom, with a shower room on the half landing below and a mezzanine library on the landing above. The top floor comprises three further bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchenette, providing flexible use. The lower ground floor has impressive proportions, with three large rooms and three vaults, all currently utilised as storage, which could create a wonderful self-contained flat, or further reception rooms/bedrooms. The basement floor contains a wine cellar and the plant room.
The garden is enclosed by stone walls and is accessed from the utility/boot room on the ground floor. To the rear of the garden is a double garage accessed from the road behind the property.
Camden Crescent is one of Baths finest examples of Georgian architecture with far reaching city views. The crescent enjoys a prime position on the lower slopes of Lansdown and is within walking distance of the city centre. Lansdown is an attractive area on the north side of the city, with easy access to the M4 (J18) and A420 providing links to Bristol, Chippenham and the M4. Camden Crescent is popular due to its proximity to The Royal High School, Kingswood and St. Stephens Church of England Primary School. The Lansdown Tennis and Squash club is also a short walk with local shops and small businesses located on Lansdown Road and Julian Road to the south.Read all
