An attractive 3-4 bedroom Grade II* Listed Georgian townhouse in the heart of Bath.
3 Brock Street is a Grade II* listed building within a terrace of seventeen houses connecting the Circus to the Royal Crescent. It was built by John Wood the Younger between 1763 1767 and is constructed of Bath stone with Venetian windows and backs onto Royal Victoria Park.
The property has been comprehensively refurbished over recent years with great care and attention to detail. Contemporary features including a new kitchen and bathrooms sit alongside period details such as sash windows, feature fireplaces and cornice work. The accommodation has been arranged to provide flexible living space that includes a suite at the top of the house and another in the lower floor, ideal for teenagers or a dependent relative.
Entering off Brock Street through an attractive and pronounced porch, the entrance hallway is laid with a stone floor and features a beautiful wooden staircase. Off the hallway is the light and airy dining room with a marble fireplace and superb views onto Brock Street and The Circus and towards the garden, beyond which lies Victoria Park. There is access from the dining room into the kitchen/breakfast room that has been updated recently by the current owners with a bespoke range of wall and base units and centre island. Off the kitchen/breakfast room is a balcony and stairs that lead to the walled garden.
The first floor comprises an elegant, well proportioned double aspect drawing room and a sitting room with numerous built in bookshelves. Each room has an elegant balcony with views over the rear garden towards Victoria Park. The second floor is dedicated to the principal bedroom and an impressive and stylish en suite bathroom with contemporary free-standing bath and a walk-in shower. In addition to this, large cupboards provide invaluable storage space. The third floor has two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The lower ground floor features a study/library with access out to the garden. There is a further bedroom or family room and a useful wet room. There are two vaults at the front of the property, one of which is the utility room. A cellar provides further useful storage space.
The raised street level of Brock Street ensures the rear gardens of the terrace are at a lower level, with the basement level forming the lower ground floor level to the rear. There is a level walled courtyard with shrubs and flowerbeds and mature trees that provide privacy and seclusion. It faces south west and from here stone steps lead down to a further walled courtyard.
