Built in 1808 by architect John Pinch the elder as a palace fronted terrace of 11 grand houses originally called New Sydney Place and fronting the beautiful park and open space of Sydney Gardens.
Considered to be amongst the most prestigious of all the later Georgian buildings within the city. Bronze plaques record that Queen Charlotte and King William IV stayed within the terrace. Approached beneath the broad lamp bracket overthrow, the large panelled front door opens into the welcoming hall with its fine cantilevered stone staircase and doors to the library, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. The quality of the architectural details is greatly enhanced by the unspoilt originality of the house. Fine ceiling mouldings, panelled doors, architraves and chimneypieces are present (illustrated in Walter Ison, 'The Georgian Buildings of Bath' 2nd ed.1980) and further enhanced by the originality of the former service rooms on the lower ground floor.
The elegant rooms provide wonderful family accommodation with the library, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor and the gracious drawing room and withdrawing room on the first floor.
A sun room on the half landing opens onto a roof terrace. The second floor provides two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one ensuite and one off of the half landing). The third floor has three bedrooms, a bathroom a kitchen and two dressing/store rooms providing flexible use. The lower ground floor has three large rooms used as studios and workshops plus former larder and pantry and cupboards. There are courtyards to the front and rear, access to the vaults and external stairs to street level.
The garden is enclosed by stone walls and is accessed from the kitchen/breakfast room and is well stocked with shrubs.
