About this property

  • 12 Lambridge is an imposing and beautifully proportioned Georgian Grade II listed villa. This striking double fronted house is constructed of Bath stone elevations under a slate tiled roof with impressive large stone finials on the parapet. Many of the original period features remain including decorative cornices, working window-shutters and fireplaces. The property is arranged over four floors and is well presented in good decorative order. Of particular note is the ground floor, which has a superb lateral arrangement with a fabulous kitchen/dining room at one end and two traditional and magnificent drawing rooms either side of the entrance hall, each with dual aspects and large bay windows to the front elevation.

    The bedroom accommodation is wonderfully spacious and well-appointed with five large bedrooms arranged over the first and second floors with: en suite bathroom, shower room, showers and sinks in bedrooms, and a separate WC on the half landing. The proportions of the rooms are superb with tall ceilings, original cornice work and sash windows overlooking the front and rear gardens. The lower ground floor provides a flexible arrangement of rooms. Currently arranged as a self-contained flat, the space could be repurposed to create two bedrooms, a flat for family members or further entertaining space. It has in the past been used as an office and recording studio.

    Garden and Grounds

    The property is situated well back from the road, hidden from sight, and offers mature and secluded grounds. A spectacular rear garden is surrounded by high stone walls and with a large lawn. Rarely are gardens of this size found in Bath. The working conservatory produces many citrus fruits, figs and grapes. A mature copper beech tree is the centre piece of this stunning garden with numerous pathways and well stocked flower beds positioned around the garden. A heated swimming pool is tucked away at the rear of the garden, sheltered behind a mature yew hedge with seating and sunbathing area. A large summerhouse is positioned under the beech tree, from which you can enjoy the view towards St Saviours Church. There is the added benefit of rear vehicular access via large wooden electronic gates accessed from Lambridge Street, with off street parking for several cars.
