Description

Pitt House was built in 1792 and designed by Thomas Baldwin as part of the Pulteney estate. In 1802, it was home of British Prime Minister, William Pitt (this detail confirmed by a bronze plaque on the front of the house).

Today, this impressive double-fronted Georgian property has been extensively refurbished to create a luxurious five-bedroom family residence over five floors. Many original features remain, including a superb cantilevered staircase, window shutters, decorative cornicing, exceptional ceiling heights, tall sash windows, and period fireplaces. Decorated in soft, neutral shades throughout, all fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality: for example, there are double-pile carpets and restored wooden floors, hand-built oak wardrobes in all bedrooms, bespoke window seats (made by Aston Martin upholsterers), traditional brass handles, silk curtains, electric window blinds and French and Italian crystal chandeliers.

On the ground floor, a light, elegant hallway welcomes you; the staircases and hallways on all floors are bright and light, illuminated naturally from the skylight on the top floor. To the right, there's a study (or cloakroom, if preferred) with an elegant fireplace and light sconces, ample built-in coat cupboards, and windows with views onto Laura Place and Great Pulteney Street.

Also on this floor, the bespoke kitchen (built by Clayton Davidson) has windows to the rear, stone worktops, and a walnut island unit with curved banquet seating and a circular breakfast table. There are ample appliances including two Miele ovens, two fridge freezers and two dishwashers as well as an integrated wine cooler, microwave, and coffee machine, plus larder, spice drawers, and display cupboards. The adjoining dining room is spacious enough for a 12-seater table.

On the first floor, the elegant living space is across two adjoining rooms with grand proportions - one to the front of the house, with tall windows, fireplace and a 75 inch TV; and the other with wonderful views of Bath's famous weir, the Empire Hotel, and Parade Gardens. Across the hall landing, there's a second study or bedroom.

Upstairs, the principal suite occupies the whole of the second floor: there's a bedroom, a luxury bathroom with a freestanding bath at its centre, a walk-in shower, two sinks, and sealed wooden floors. A plush dressing room, complete with fitted wardrobes, backlit shelves, a dressing table, and an island display unit completes the suite.

The third and fourth floors are home to three more sumptuous bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a conveniently placed and well-equipped utility room with Miele washing and dryer machines, sink, and fitted storage units.

The extensive refurbishment includes new electrics, boiler and heating system, eight televisions and Sonos speakers. A year's membership of The Gainsborough Bath Spa and gym is also offered by the vendor.
