With the iconic Royal Crescent and its lawns as the immediate view from this first floor Georgian two bedroom apartment, No 5 Marlborough Buildings is located in one of the most desirable locations in Bath.
From the street a grandly-spaced communal entrance hallway leads to the first floor private entrance. Inside, all rooms lead off the central reception area, which has fitted cupboards. Storage space exists above the reception hall area ceiling, accessed by a ladder. Here are revealed the fabulous friezes, which raise the possibility of Georgian restoration.
The drawing room is of particular note with its high ceiling, tall sash windows which fill the room with light and views to the east over the Royal Crescent. The second bedroom also enjoys this famous aspect, whilst the kitchen and bathroom are centrally positioned. Facing west, the well-proportioned master bedroom, also has a high ceiling and tall sash windows. It has a large fitted wardrobe and alcove fitted shelves.
Three generations of the same family have loved this apartment, and it is now offered with vacant possession. It would benefit from some updating.
Marlborough Buildings is an impressive Georgian terrace to the west of the Royal Crescent. To the rear are views overlooking Victoria Park and to the front overlooking the lawns of the Crescent. The Royal Crescent Hotel with its private members’ club offers fine dining, spa and restaurants. All historic sites, boutiques and cafes combine to make Bath the special place it is, are within short walking distance.
The recently upgraded Bath Spa railway station offers easy access to London. Direct Paddington trains leave frequently, averaging a 90-minute journey. Proposed electrification and links will much reduce the time, and impact forward travel within London. Good access to the M4 is an approximate 15-minute drive north. Bristol airport is well connected and Heathrow Airport is easily accessible from the M4. Bath is well served by schools of good reputation.
