About this property

  • 13 Cavendish Place is a magnificent Grade I listed townhouse situated in one of Bath's most desirable locations. This elegant property sits at the end of the terrace and provides approx. 6,848 sq ft of accommodation. This family home was the subject of a full renovation four years ago and is currently the only house in the terrace that remains as one whole property. The proportions are exceptional, providing elegant and versatile living space whilst retaining a wealth of period features including cornicing, feature fireplaces and deep sash windows with shutters.

    Upon entering, there is an entrance hall which leads into a main reception hall where the magnificent proportions are immediately apparent. On the ground floor is a spacious room with two full height front-facing sash windows and a beautiful fireplace. To the rear of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of units/modern appliances and an Aga, with attractive views over the garden. In addition on the ground floor is a cloakroom and boot room and a utility area, as well as access to the aforementioned rear garden.

    A magnificent stone staircase with mahogany handrail rises to the upper floors. On the half landing is the orangery which is currently used is a sitting room, but would also make an ideal study or further games room. The stunning drawing room and withdrawing room are at first floor level with breathtaking proportions. The drawing room has beautiful cornicing, a feature fireplace and wooden flooring . There are three large sash windows to the front that offer superb views of the adjacent golf course. This room leads to the withdrawing room to the rear. Again, there is fine ceiling detail with large built-in shelving and a fireplace. There are also good views to the rear over the garden.

    On the second floor is the principal bedroom suite which benefits from lovely views and en suite bathroom There is a further double bedroom on the second floor and a shower room.

    On the top floor there are two excellent-size double bedrooms both with en suite shower rooms as well as a further bedroom, shower room and a spacious landing area.

    The proportions and ceiling heights remain in the lower ground floor. There is a modern family bathroom, large games room/family room as well as storage rooms, laundry room, vaults and a wine cellar.

    To the rear of the house is a mature walled garden, mainly laid to lawn with well-established borders stocked with a variety of plants and shrubs. There is also a large patio area, the perfect spot to enjoy al fresco dining during the summer months. Additionally, there is a large separate garage at the rear of the garden.

The conversion from apartments back to a full house has been done very sympathetically and I love the fact that it's the only complete house in the terrace.
