Synopsis
‘This is a house with the front door at the back,’ says Claire Rendall of the house in one of Bath’s crescents that she and Peter Stewart purchased in 1999. The back front door leads straight through to the drawing room and the glazed door immediately opposite beckons the visitor onto the terrace to meet the view over the city below. It is spectacular. The Romans, for quite different reasons, had uses for the view when they stationed barracks here during the city’s early history. ‘Bath has seven hills and seven crescents,’ Claire explains, ‘and although this crescent is now part of the city, at the time it was built in the late eighteenth century it was detached and according to English Heritage operated as a self-sustaining community. Everyone had a cottage garden, there was an orchard, a well and a smithy.’
