  • Bedrooms: 4
A beautifully appointed Grade II listed, four-floored townhouse, stretching to some 2200 sq ft. Full of light, with high-ceilinged grandeur, the property enjoys spectacular panoramic views in a most sought-after location and is just a 10-minute walk through pretty Hedgemead Park to town.

* Entrance hall * Drawing room * Sitting room * Kitchen/breakfast room * 4 double bedrooms * 2 bathrooms * Cloakroom * Large vaults * South facing garden terraced over 4 levels * Double garage * Panoramic views across Bath * Period fireplaces, staircases and cornicing *

The property is entered into an oak-floored hallway featuring period staircases with original curved hardwood bannisters to the upper and lower floors.

On the ground floor is a grand drawing room stretching across the full width of the property. This room boasts a beautiful period marble fireplace and ornate plaster cornicing to the high ceiling. Triple sash windows make the room beautifully light and give arguably some of the most spectacular panoramic views across the city to Prior Park and beyond. Also to this floor is the fourth double bedroom which features an ornate cast-iron fireplace and a period sash window to the front of the property.

Downstairs, the lower ground floor is an open-plan living space encompassing the entire floor with a kitchen/breakfast room to the front flowing directly into the sitting room to the rear. With windows to both the front and rear, this is another wonderfully light space with stunning views over Bath. The large vaults, which are accessed from the kitchen on this floor, provide expansive storage space and having been tanked could be converted to further expand the living accommodation on this floor, subject to planning permission. This level also gives access to the four-tiered terraced gardens to the rear.

The first floor is given over entirely to the master bedroom and accompanying en-suite bathroom. The bedroom benefits from the full width of the house and features another fireplace, original curved alcoves and ornate plaster cornicing. Double sash windows again look out across the entire city with views to the countryside both to the east and the west. This is a truly exceptional room. The en-suite bathroom with another marble-topped fireplace has a double-length walk-in shower supplied by a high pressure pumped system, a glass washbasin fitted to a hardwood tabletop, and WC with concealed cistern. Double-doored cupboards fill each alcove to give ample storage space.

On the next level a half-floor provides a separate cloakroom and then moving to the top floor there are two further double bedrooms and a second bathroom. The pretty second bathroom retains an early roll-top and claw-footed bath which sits beneath another original sash window allowing the same breath-taking views as you enjoy a bathe. A separate modern high pressure pumped shower cubicle is also present.

To the rear of the property is a fantastically sunny south-facing garden that delights in the same views as the house and extends over four terraces allowing you to escape from the direct sun that the top terrace enjoys if you wish. There is power and water to all levels of the garden allowing easy watering. To the very rear of the property is the double garage which extends to over 6 metres in length so easily accommodates two large cars and still gives plenty of additional storage or workbench space. The garage also benefits from power and water.

Belgrave Terrace is well-placed for access to the city centre which is a 10-minute walk through Hedgemead Park to the centre of town. Larkhall Village, which has a range of independent shops, including a traditional butchers, artisan bakers, delicatessen, and the popular Rondo Theatre, is also just a ten-minute walk away. The house is within the catchment area for the excellent St Stephen's School and is within walking distance of both Bath Royal High and Kingswood. For those looking to commute by train, Bath Spa Station offers trains to London (journey time from 75 mins) and to Bristol Temple Meads (approximately 15 minutes). Being on the northern slopes the property has good access to the M4.

Bath is proud to be a World Heritage Site, and the city offers a wide variety of cultural and leisure facilities, plus shops, restaurants and coffee houses for all ages to enjoy. You're never far away from the countryside in Bath with the Cotswold Walk and the National Skyline Walk offering beautiful views. If you prefer a walk closer to home, there is Royal Victoria Park, Henrietta Park, Hedgemead Park and Sydney Gardens to enjoy all within walking distance.
