There is a marvellous sense of history and romance at this striking Georgian garden apartment for two in the centre of historic Bath. Situated in a handsome square between Bath's famous Royal Crescent and The Circus, it has grand and atmospheric rooms packed with period detail and original decorative plasterwork picked out in Wedgwood Blue. It is equipped with every modern comfort, such as the smart fitted kitchen and private garden, and yet gazing into the flames of the wood burning stove you are immediately transported 200 years earlier when Jane Austen first penned her celebrated novels.
The spacious living room is filled with detail, from the ornate cornicing, to the plaster paneling and a decorative frieze above a large carved, working fireplace. Light streams from two tall sash windows with original working shutters. There are two large sumptuous sofas, along with a TV and DVD and a selection of films and books. A folding dining table seats 4 with a set of Spode china for special occasions.
The blue and gold bedroom also has tall shuttered windows overlooking a little walled courtyard garden and an ornate carved fireplace with a mirror over. There is a cream and brass bedstead with a 5' king size bed, a chest of drawers, fitted wardrobe and pretty French style armchair.
A neat white-tiled bathroom with a smoky blue glass trim has polished stone flooring over which is a bath with shower over, a hand basin with storage over and a WC.
The stone floor carries into a lovely cream fitted kitchen with granite worktops and a breakfast bar, along with two high seats. French doors lead into a private courtyard garden. Neatly designed and well equipped, the kitchen is fitted with a gas hob, an electric oven, a large fridge and separate freezer, a small dishwasher and a washing machine combined with dryer.
The Bath Spa railway and bus station are a 15-20 minute walk away. Alternatively a car parking permit for 1 car is available allowing you to park in a resident's bay on Catharine place itself or on neighbouring streets.
