No. 14 Sydney Buildings is a Grade II listed mid-terrace 5-bedroom townhouse with versatile accommodation spanning four floors.

This well-presented house is full of character and charm having retained many period features. The accommodation spans over 2,100 sq. ft. The front of the house faces east and looks across to the beautiful walled gardens of Darlington Place. The principal rooms situated on the west facing side of the house enjoy wonderful views of Bath. The pretty garden provides a lovely area for socialising and relaxing whilst looking out over the canal. Also available in the sale is the delightful “Lily Trotter” canal boat.

Entering the front door, you are greeted by a light and spacious entrance hall. A door leads through to the drawing room. This is a beautifully proportioned room with a bay window enjoying wonderful views of the canal and Bath. The room is filled with light and has a beautifully restored ceiling rose and cornice surrounds. The painted timber fireplace has a gas fire insert.

An interconnecting door leads to the kitchen/diner where once again the ceiling rose and cornice plasterwork have been carefully restored. A range of country units including two tall period housekeeping cupboards provide generous storage space. There is also a freestanding gas oven, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, and the flooring is terracotta style tiles.

Descending the stairs from the front door, you enter a light, spacious family room with French doors opening directly onto the patio and garden with its delightful canal outlook. This room offers great flexibility. It’s ideal for entertaining and has a range of units, with integrated fridge and sink, on one side of the room to facilitate this. Equally, with its double-glazing and individually zoned gas central heating, it offers a cosy snug when needed.

In addition, with a corridor providing separate access to the garden, the family room can easily be included as part of the guest suite with the fifth bedroom and its adjoining bathroom. This provides ideal accommodation for long-stay visitors, dependents desiring some independence, and possibly Air BnB or similar.

On the first floor there are two wonderful bedrooms. The master bedroom is a superb room with a bay window providing panoramic views across Bath. An original marble fireplace with cupboards over is flanked by two built-in wardrobes. Three steps lead up to a handy en suite shower room with WC and basin. The views of the Abbey from this window are particularly fine.

The second bedroom has another original marble fireplace and its views are of the charming gardens of Darlington Place. Also on the first floor is a family bathroom.

Stairs lead up to the top floor where there are two double bedrooms and a Velux window lights an open area, currently used as a study. Also on the top floor is another WC and basin. The spectacular views from these windows are of particular note.

Externally

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with one principal border down the side. The French doors lead onto a pleasant, paved terrace, ideal for summer dining and drinks. There is a built-in stone bench which adds to the charm. At the end of the garden a gate in the iron railings opens onto a well-constructed staircase leading down to a landing stage. Here you find the delightful “Lily Trotter” which with its four beds, galley kitchen and toilet compartment is ideal for pleasure cruising the canals. The private mooring is available through the Canal & River Trust.

Agent’s note

Please note that there is a single garage available by separate negotiation with up and over metal door. It is positioned in the side road by Dunsford Place – garage no. 3.
