A first floor, Grade II listed two bedroom apartment in Rivers Street, in the heart of Georgian Bath, conveniently placed between the Circus and the Royal Crescent.
"I love the view from the three floor to ceiling sash windows overlooking the coach houses at the back of the Royal Crescent, and Catharine Place with its tranquil communal gardens," says the vendor. "It is so quiet here, yet so central. The excellent shops in St James's Square are just round the corner with Ede's fruit and vegetable shop, 'Corners' hairdressers', the newsagents, a brilliant deli and coffee shop, and the pharmacy. In Margaret's Buildings the Green Bird caf is extremely popular and the galleries and book shop and jewellers there are very enticing. The Co-op on Julian Road is very handy too. The Royal Crescent is so close, 0.1 miles away, and Victoria Park and the Botanical Gardens are exceptionally beautiful. The Marlborough Tavern is 0.2 miles away and has delicious food. It is so lovely to stroll into the shops and cafes on Milsom Street from here I feel so lucky to live in this beautiful part of Bath. Even when I go away it is such a pleasure to come home and appreciate the stunning Georgian buildings in this World Heritage Centre."
"My favourite room in the apartment is the sitting room, which is flooded with light and has those beautiful views. I often sit there, enjoying the vista, and soaking up the sunlight which floods in through the large windows. The sitting room is open plan, opening out on-to the kitchen at one end. The main bedroom has two large sash windows with views across to Julian Road, and cupboards stretching the length of one wall, so plenty of storage. The second bedroom could be used as a study or single bedroom."
"Parking is with a Resident's permit which costs about 100 a year and you can now pay extra for visitors' permits. I also pay about 20 a year to belong to the Catharine Place Residents' Association which gives me access to the gardens. The other members are lovely, there is often a garden party in the Summer and a Christmas get together. I shall be very sad to leave this quiet, central location offering so much within walking distance, and such a friendly community."
