This sumptuous 18th century 1st floor apartment has an open-plan living room with three vast Georgian windows that look directly over the River Avon, Pulteney Bridge, the historic buildings of Bath and the rolling countryside beyond. It's a rare vantage point in the centre of this beautiful city, and with the soothing sound of water over the weir in the background, you could easily forget that you were in a city at all.
The building was designed by Robert Adam (c. 1790) and this magnificent apartment has been beautifully restored, retaining wonderful period detail along with luxurious contemporary adaptations. It is adjacent to the famous Pulteney Bridge, which is featured in many postcards and souvenirs and, like the Ponte Vecchio in Florence is lined with shops on either side. Everthing truly is on your doorstep in this city center property.
The large living area has two large comfortable chairs and a large sofa by a gas coal-effect fire. There is a TV with DVD and Wi Fi. The large round dining table set in front of the fabulous view, seats at least 6 and there is a cleverly designed kitchen under a curved mezzanine. Above this is another lounge area where you can enjoy music, reading, and that breathtaking vista while you listen to the water over the weir from below. This space has a double sofa-bed and can become an additional bedroom.
The handsome bespoke fitted kitchen has birch cupboard doors with mahogany inlay, granite worktops and top of the range appliances. There is an electric hob and oven and dishwasher. Elegantly concealed is a large fridge and separate freezer, a microwave and a washing machine and separate dryer.
There are two charming bedrooms. The master room has a king sized bed, chest of drawers and wardrobe. The second room has a pretty double bed, antique storage and a recently refurbished ensuite shower room with hand basin and wc. There is a large limestone tiled bathroom tucked under the mezzanine, with a bath, (with shower over) hand basin and wc.
Everything that this lovely historic city has to offer is within easy reach, the closest of which is the Bath Abbey, the Roman Baths, the Theatre Royal and the Therme Spa. There are many museums and galleries as well as a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants. Exploring on foot will lead to many wonderful discoveries and you will never be far from your beautiful retreat.
