Somerset Place is a Georgian Grade 1 listed crescent in Bath. Designed by John Eveleigh in 1790, the crescent commands fine south and westerly views of the city and its surroundings, emulating the style and sinuous line taken by nearby Lansdown Place. This world-class landmark is about to enter a period of restoration which will see the complete crescent reborn as a series of luxury residences. At the core of the renewal, Somerset Place boasts nine Grade I listed crescent houses, each retaining their original period features as part of a meticulous restoration programme. Accommodation ranges from 3,100 to 5,700 sq ft and the development company is working with a team of heritage experts to restore the façade to its original magnificent condition. Owners will then have the opportunity to design the property's interior to match their particular tastes in terms of finishes and fittings. Unusually for Bath, each crescent house includes ownership of land to the rear of the site. A number of the houses also have parking to the rear, as well as private parking in front.
The crescent will include a number of apartments, each with a Grade I listed façade but with a flexible internal configuration. The floor plates vary, from ground floor maisonettes with beautiful gardens, to upper floor maisonettes with roof terraces and lateral apartments with large windows and plenty of light. Accommodation ranges from 1,600 sq ft to 2,700 sq ft and, unusually for a listed property, there are lifts to each floor. Development managed by Future Heritage Group, each apartment will be finished to exacting standards by internationally acclaimed architects and interior designers Paul Davis & Partners in conjunction with award-winning architects ORMS. Owners will benefit from generous parking provision as well as access to the crescent's communal gardens. An onsite management team will maintain the security of the estate and provide concierge services for residents.
