Portway House is superb, a Grade I Listed house of importance, dating from the 1720's and constructed from beautiful Bath stone ashlar. Standing within private grounds, the house has been converted to provide eight spectacular apartments.
From entering the hallway, the classical features of the building become apparent, with beautiful panelling, deep sash windows and the most stunning original staircase rising gracefully through the house.
No.5 occupies the top floor and as such enjoys far reaching views across the surrounding area.
On reaching the apartment the private entrance hall includes excellent built in storage and hanging space.
The large Sitting Room/ Kitchen has a contemporary open plan layout that makes the most of the wonderful proportions on offer. A fantastic space, successfully combing period features with modern touches and elegant, deep sash windows allowing natural light to flood in. The large Sitting Area is arranged around an attractive fireplace with rustic surround and offers more than enough room for relaxing and entertaining, whilst original window seats provide the perfect spot to watch the world go by beneath you.
The Kitchen has been fitted with a range of hand built cupboards and shelves and includes an integrated oven and hob with extractor over. An island unit divides the area (available by separate negotiation).
The Double Bedroom features a deep wardrobe area and window seat overlooking the rear gardens and beyond, whilst the Bathroom has been complete renovated and re-arranged. Now including a full size bath with shower over, the bathroom also includes a vanity unit and excellent built-in storage.
There is also extra, useful storage within the basement of the building with a private, lockable space of good size.
Portway House is set behind beautiful original railings and gates, the communal grounds are extensive and well kept and includes plenty of private parking including an allocated space.
