Crownhill Development

Plot 5, Granville House

Granville House is served by its own treelined private drive and is the ‘flagship’ plot on this development. Set in approximately half an acre, this house will enjoy stunning panoramic views across the valley to the east and south east, as well as the privacy afforded by the backdrop of mature trees surrounding the historic Ensleigh House grounds on the western side. It is unquestionably the best plot on this escarpment and, in our opinion, you will not find a better location for a new house in the City of Bath.

This house was designed for a ‘bespoke buyer’ who has, due to a change of circumstances, unfortunately had to withdraw at a late stage.

Granville House really is a house to stand comparison with the best in Bath. Approached by its own private, 65 metre long tree lined driveway, the first impression will be of the generous forecourt allowing cars to sweep round to the front door. The mellow bath stone facades of the house form the backdrop, in an attractive and imposing architectural composition centred on the three storey tower at the junction of the two wings. The nearly half acre plot allows for a private garden with croquet sized lawn as well as a kitchen garden tucked away at the side. All the main rooms, terraces and garden face onto the panoramic views over the Green Belt countryside. Generously proportioned accommodation includes master and guest bedroom suites, four further bedrooms, three reception rooms, games area, kitchen/dining/family room space with glazed roof loggia, back kitchen and boot room, gym and sauna, staff flat, three car garage, extensive storage/workshop space and wine cellar, and of course the tower room.
