Georgian Grade 1 listed ground floor maisonette with private garden, three bedrooms, one bathroom and one shower room in one of Bath's most prestigious locations, Great Pulteney Street.
"I was a student here in Bath and lived for four years on this lovely street," says the current owner of the property. "When I was later in a position to buy, I jumped at the opportunity to own a property here. Of course it's very centrally located, yet open and versatile with plenty of space inside and out. I immediately put in an offer when I found this house was on the market, and have never looked back!"
"Significant changes have been made to the property since we bought it," the owner says, "from the addition of central heating to a brand new kitchen/dining room and bathrooms. The look and feel of the house is just lovely, extremely spacious and light there is a real feeling of airiness and openness. This makes the house feel quite contemporary, though there are many original features still remaining, such as coving and the plasterwork on the arch in the hallway, not to mention the beautiful fireplaces and original range in the master bedroom. The sitting room at the front of the house is a lovely place to sit and watch TV, listen to music or see the world go by. This is a great house for parties, the open plan kitchen-diner and the sitting room being connected together. The space flows from the front to the rear of the house and can easily accommodate 30 people."
"The garden is really nice too," says the owner, "being the one of the largest of all those on this side of the street. It has been beautifully landscaped to the highest of quality finishes, and has a wonderful fish pond."
The local area has much to offer, too. "It is central yet quiet," says the owner. "The Holburne Museum is on one side with its caf and eclectic museum and many exhibitions, while in the other direction it is just 5 minutes to the centre of everything, all the shops and restaurants that the city has to offer." There are a variety of cultural, leisure and retail facilities including The Theatre Royal, Bath Recreational Ground, Bath Abbey, Thermae Spa and unique independent shops as well as department stores. The area boasts several highly regarded schools both public and private, including King Edward's School, Kingswood School, The Royal High School for girls, Monkton Combe School, Prior Park College and Stonar. The owner says "The highly rated Pulteney Arms pub is accessible via the gate at the bottom of the garden and has fantastic food and drink. Both Henrietta Garden and Sydney Garden and the canal are within a couple of minutes walk"
"I will miss everything about this place - the light, the space, the garden and all the city has to offer."
