This is a very smart and stylish three storey Grade II Listed townhouse in one of the most fashionable areas of Bath. The ground floor sitting room to the front has Georgian style sash windows fitted with plantation shutters adding a contemporary look. The wood burning stove is a focal point in these colder autumn evenings. Oak flooring flows from the hall into this room and continues into the adjacent open plan dining area where there is a central Bath stone fireplace with feature cabinetry on either side, plus a tall sash window looking out to the courtyard. The bespoke interior design extends into the kitchen with sleek units beautifully designed under a ‘Corian’ work surface. There is a comprehensive range of integral appliances including an oven, plus a combination microwave and grill, gas hob, warming drawer, dishwasher, fridge, freezer plus a wine chiller. The fashionable tones of the interior carry forward through the double doors to the ground floor dining courtyard.
The first floor master bedroom is beautifully proportioned with two sash windows looking across the street to the handsome villas and beyond to the city. A central cast iron fireplace adds a period feature which fuses with the latest fashions. The bathroom is of particular note with Phillipe Starck fittings including a free-standing bath and a separate walk-in rain water shower with a wall of slate tiles providing a dramatic back drop. Underfloor heating, an ambient lighting design and Bang and Olufsen speakers add to the luxury of this wonderful bathroom. Up on the second floor are three further bedrooms; the two to the front look over the church to city views and even to the hills in the distance. The pretty bedroom to the rear has a green aspect looking across to the garden. A shower room designed by ‘Ripples’ finishes the tour.
To the front is a level gravel garden that has been designed to create parking for at least two cars. There is a hybrid/electric charge point. The garden to the rear is south facing and is terraced with five garden ‘rooms’. The ground floor is paved and with double doors from the kitchen is the perfect spot for dining and tending to your potted garden. The next level has paving plus an ‘evergreen’ lawn and has a delightful seating area surrounded by attractive planting. A half flight of steps leads past a border of mature plants whilst the next terrace houses a practical shed fronted by shrubs. The top level is the piece de resistance and is well worth the climb with views across the chimney pots towards the city there is a view of the spire of St John’s as well as the Abbey. Solsbury Hill is in the distance to the east and a peek of Kelston Round Hill to the west completes the vista.
