A two bedroom Bath city centre apartment with a walled garden.
Number 7 is at the centre of a terrace of 12 houses built between 1766-1770 by John Wood the Younger, whose notable designs include the Royal Crescent and the Assembly Rooms. The garden flat is on the lower ground floor and occupies the whole of this level. There's a communal entrance, with a vestibule that acts as a buffer in winter between indoors and outdoors and includes postboxes for each of the flats. Stairs to the left lead down to the lower ground floor.The refurbishment and design of this apartment has used the space cleverly enhancing access to natural light throughout. There's an internal courtyard that directs light into one of the bedrooms, and the kitchen and dining room, both of which are lit from the skylight and two sets of sliding glass doors that open onto the garden dining patio.The layouts flows well, enhanced by the continuous wooden flooring throughout (excluding tiled kitchen and bathrooms), neutral colour palette and integral lighting. The kitchen is well equipped with ceramic sink and large range cooker with gas hob and extractor fan. The second bedroom is at the front of the house, the window looking out onto the small courtyard which can be accessed from the main hallway.Gardens and GroundsSliding glass doors open from both the kitchen and the dining room onto the very private slate-tiled patio and steps up to the walled garden beyond.
