A thoughtfully restored and rejuvenated period detached family residence in a favoured location close to the cosmopolitan City of Bath.
Theela House provides a genuine opportunity to acquire a substantial period and honest home, renovated to the highest standard, in an exceptional location in Bath. The buyer looking for a long-term family investment (schools, location, lifestyle etc.) should look no further. This is the first time Theela House has come to the market for more than fifty years, demonstrating this home is for the long term.
The 2-storey accommodation has the flexibility to suit various demands with its entertaining, living and recreational spaces, which have all been subjected to extensive and considered renovation. The space is purposeful rather than converted meaning attractive useable rooms updated with modern infrastructure, including under floor heating in the kitchen and bathrooms.
On the ground floor all rooms lead off a substantially sized hall.
To the left and right of the entrance are two generous formal reception rooms, both with restored and exposed period floor boards and traditional fireplaces. There is a guest cloakroom situated behind the staircase and the dining room/study is next to the playroom, which has access to the back garden. The modern addition to this classic period home is the impressive 30ft x 30ft kitchen/dining/living area housed in a new single-storey extension. It is the desirable modern heart of any home. It features a contemporary bespoke purpose built kitchen, roof lantern-light over the island, which houses a wine fridge, breakfast bar and food prep area and there are full-length bi-fold aluminum doors leading to the rear patio and garden.
Winter can be just as enjoyable in this room with the cosy addition of a log-burning stove in the sitting area.
The English Heritage City of Bath not only boasts international acclaim for its fine architecture and Roman history, but also first class restaurants, shops and amenities. There is a thriving cultural scene with a nationally renowned theatre which regularly attracts high profile plays bound for the West End, along with museums, galleries and the opportunity for many outdoor pursuits including rugby, golf and horse racing.
Theela House is convenient for some of the best schools in the city. There is a well-regarded state primary school (St Stephen’s), a prep school (Kingswood Preparatory School) and two private secondary schools (Kingswood and The Royal High School for Girls) within walking distance.
