A wonderfully-restored townhouse providing elegant family accommodation and a south-facing walled garden.
A superb family house, beautifully presented and situated on the southern side of Brock Street, one of Bath's prime locations, connecting The Royal Crescent and The Circus. Listed Grade II, the house was built by renowned Bath architect John Wood the younger in 1783 as a continuation of The Circus. 4 Brock Street was the subject of comprehensive renovation in 2010 when the building was returned from separate flats to one single home. Meticulous attention has been paid to combining the comforts of modern living with the fine Georgian architectural features - greatly enhanced by today's decoration and living arrangement.
The elegant and appealing rooms provide in excess of 4,000 sq ft over six floors. The formal drawing room and neighbouring library/study on the ground floor are in contrast to the informal and open-plan kitchen/breakfast/sitting room of the garden floor which is very much the hub of family life.
The first floor is dedicated to the principal bedroom and its en suite bathroom, with the second and third floors providing four further bedrooms and two further bath/shower rooms.
Of particular note are the delightful Venetian windows which immediately draw you to the southerly aspect overlooking the gardens and magnificent trees of Royal Victoria Park beyond.
The established south-facing garden is walled to all sides has been designed for ease of maintenance and provides a series of garden rooms' including a paved, Italianate dining terrace with wisteria, jasmine and a grape vine. The lawn is edged with pleached apple and pear trees and decorative box balls. At the rear of the garden there is a large raised bed, featuring box borders and topiary.
A rare feature for any period town house in Bath is the access to the garden from three reception rooms - the drawing room, kitchen/dining room and the family room.

I particularly love the layout of this beautiful house, especially the way in which the garden can be access from all three principal reception rooms - a real rarity in a Bath townhouse.Luke Brady
