Ainslie's Belvedere - Classic 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Bath townhouse.
Built circa 1790, all three floors are graced with high ceilings, long elegant sash windows, pretty ornate fireplaces and fabulous chandeliers. The original feature staircase is in Bath stone, with a curving mahogany handrail. From the back of the house are extensive views of mature trees in a city park, distant rows of grand bath stone terraces, church steeples and hills to the south- east.
The large Living room has a sensational floor to ceiling window with extensive views and a gorgeous grey glass chandelier. There is a smart grey sofa to seat 2, a sofa with chaise to seat 3 (a section of which can be a small sofa-bed) and an occasional chair. A large wall-mounted TV has a Sonos sound system with a Sky Plus HD package. There is Wi-Fi and a digital radio. In the storage units is a DVD player, a selection of films, books and games. An elegant fireplace has a gas coal-effect fire with a pretty mirror over and fitted alcove cupboards on either side.
On the lower ground floor is a large inviting open plan kitchen-diner where you could spend the whole evening. A sturdy oak dining table has 6 comfortable upholstered chairs, with further chairs in the under-stairs cupboard if required. There is a wall-mounted TV, a wood-burning stove supplied with a bag of logs, and deep stone alcoves with storage which would have originally held a cooking range and ovens. Big French doors lead onto a small stone terrace with an outdoor table and chairs for 4 and a small contained and secure garden. A high chair is also provided along with crockery for young children.
The stylish sage green kitchen has been made to measure with fitted units on 3 sides and a central island. The original fireplace is now home to a generous wine rack with food storage on either side. There is a large 4 ring induction hob and wide electric oven, a microwave, a large fridge and separate freezer and a dish-washer. There is an excellent supply of cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery.
A smart granite tiled utility room is a couple of steps down from the dining area. It houses a washing machine, separate dryer and large counter- top sink, with storage under, along with other utility essentials.
This room leads to a similarly smart contemporary shower room with a small walk-in shower, hand-basin and WC with shelves over.
There are 3 spacious and comfortable double bedrooms and each one is provided with a hairdryer. Starting on the ground floor beside the living room, there is a grey and amethyst room with a plush 5’ double bed and chest of drawers and pretty chair. Either side of a charming decorative fireplace are alcove cupboards with plenty of shelving, hanging space and a pretty mirror.
The next double bedroom on the 1st floor is in luxurious mink, with a 5’ double bed and light oak chest of drawers. This too has a delightful decorative fireplace with a wall mounted TV over. Alcove cupboards on either side provide plenty of shelves and hanging space.
The final twin room in pearl and grey has two 3’ beds that can zip and link to become a 6’ double. A tall sash window has glorious views. Another delightful decorative fireplace also has alcove cupboards on either side with shelves and hanging space, along with chest of drawers and easy chair.
At this level is a spacious contemporary family bathroom which features a generous double-ended bath. There is a large corner shower, a hand-basin with storage under and a WC with storage over, along with extra shelf space for toiletries.

Amazing beautiful townhouse- felt like home
We were greeted at the apartment and shown the various aspects and appliances and fireplaces and how to work them. The home was beautifully and comfortably decorated. The house was even decorated for Christmas. Another sweet thing about renting this home was that they provided some groceries to start off our visit right. We arrived late and didn’t have to rush to the store for coffee or milk. We really appreciated that special touch
Thank you so much Jen. So pleased you had a good time and enjoyed the welcome hamper. Traveling to a city can be exhausting with flights or busy roads and for myself it is always so welcoming to arrive at a place and having provisions there with some food and drinks as you want time to relax in the property at first. Therefore I have always ensured you can find them at my properties. Take care and hope to see you again.
This property is on the northern slopes of Bath and a 5 minute walk downhill to George Street which is lined with restaurants, galleries, night clubs, shops and wine bars. Also off George Street is Milsom Street, Bath's main shopping thoroughfare, which leads down towards the Pump Rooms, the Roman Baths, Thermae Spa and Bath Abbey. You are also a 5-10 minute stroll to Bath's famous architectural treasures of The Circus and Royal Crescent, set in front of lovely Royal Victoria Park where you can enjoy miniature golf, tennis, botanical gardens, hot air balloon trips and a children's outdoor play area. You have a convenience store and take away shops only a few minutes walk away on Julian Road. Whatever you choose to do, shopping, sightseeing or entertainment, most pursuits are a pleasant stroll of about 5-10 minutes away from your house.
