Property description

A simply exquisite Grade I listed single storey Regency residence located in a tucked away position.

Location

The Orangery is brilliantly positioned in a historic part of the city; Jane Austen lived close by at No 4 Sydney Place and the property also neighbours the Holburne Museum and Sydney Pleasure Gardens at the end of Great Pulteney Street. Great Pulteney Street provides a delightful level approach to the city centre. The Kennet and Avon canal is easily accessed through Sydney Gardens, with good walking routes.

The centre of Bath offers numerous leisure, shopping and sporting facilities. Access to major transport links is equally easy with the recently redeveloped Bath Spa railway station providing a fast route to London Paddington (from 85 minutes), and the M4 about 9.5 miles north.

Description

The Orangery is a most impressive single storey residence built in 1812, occupying a prime location in a much sought after area of the city. It is in a quiet position near Sydney Gardens, yet within a level walk to the centre of Bath. The Orangery has elevations of Bath stone and having previously belonged to the estate of 93 Sydney Place where Queen Charlotte once lived, this unique Grade I listed property is of particular architectural and historic interest.

The Orangery has a fascinating history which dates back over several centuries. The property has been the subject of various changes over more recent times by the highly regarded Mark Watson of Watson Bertram and Fell architects. The accommodation is of a very versatile nature with all the principal reception rooms overlooking the delightful Italianate garden.

The property is entered into via an inner hallway with a practical, matted entrance way. This leads through to a simply breathtaking Rotunda atrium with a glazed atrium roof; this circular room has limestone flooring and under floor heating, Bath stone fireplace, dado rail, corniced ceiling and two sets of double doors opening straight out onto the garden. There is a utility/cloakroom with a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier and a W.C.

To the south side of the property are two excellent size double bedrooms with plenty of built-in wardrobes and both benefit from en suite bathrooms. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautiful and provides a range of base and wall units. The dining area has distinctive cornicing and large lantern roof. On from here, is a bathroom and a further reception room or as the current owners use it, a bedroom. The drawing room is exceptional and benefits from a marble fireplace with gas insert fire and access to the garden. There is another bedroom with en suite and a useful study area with access to the garden.

Externally

The south-facing Italianate landscaped gardens of The Orangery, are of particular note and are a real gem in the heart of the city. The gardens are absolutely delightful; they have been designed with ease of maintenance in mind but benefit from carefully selected foliage, flagstone terracing with inset plants and shrubs and a central canopy of lime trees.
