Kersfield expands development portfolio with conversion project for Grade I listed Bath building

May 23, 2019

Bath property development firm Kersfield has acquired the Grade I listed Georgian townhouse 1 Sion Hill Place in Lansdown to convert into seven luxury apartments.

Kersfield has appointed Bath-based architects Nash Consultancy to work on the project and will shortly be submitting a planning application for what it describes as a “sensitive” conversion to Bath & North East Somerset Council on behalf of Kersfield.

Construction work on the lateral and duplex apartments is expected to commence this autumn.

Sion Hill Place, pictured below, was built between 1818-1820 and designed by renowned architect John Pinch whose other works include Babington House and the original Royal United Hospital (now the Gainsborough Hotel).

The terrace was recently featured in the Sunday Times’ Home supplement as ‘one of the top 10 best streets in the UK’. 

Kersfield CEO David Newton said: “Conversion of this historically significant townhouse will add quality housing stock to the Bath property market and gives us the fantastic opportunity to combine classic architecture with sympathetic modernity in this exclusive residential area of Bath.”

Kersfield has been involved in a number of Bath projects over recent years including the transformation of obsolete city centre office space into luxury holiday and short-term let apartments as well as the development of a prime four-acre former MoD site in Lansdown with 26 four and five-bedroom houses and nine large apartments, the former Hope Chapel, which is being converted into eight apartments, a house and a ground floor retail/restaurant space, and four large apartments at Beckford Gate, also in Lansdown.
