superb drawing room – with nearly floor-to- ceiling triple sash windows which look out over Catharine Place, marble fireplace and wood-burning stove – and withdrawing room up on the first floor. The second floor is dedicated to the master


bedroom suite, which shares a similar triple aspect to the drawing room below, and is also home to an original fireplace and several fitted cupboards. It also has the bonus of its own vast, and seriously chic, en-suite bathroom, complete with cast iron bath and a good-sized shower. The remaining three bedrooms and family bathroom are up on the third floor. Our favourite room of the house, and the


one we would definitely be spending the most time in, is the kitchen, which is to be found back down the stairs, at garden level. It’s an incredible space, with thoughtful highlights such as bespoke French oak cabinetry finished with polished concrete worktops, a distressed paint-effect timber

ceiling, a Spanish tiled splashback, original old pine dresser and colour-pop canary yellow shutters. It’s the sort of kitchen you’d expect to find in a hip Hoxton warehouse rather than a beautiful Bath town house; brilliantly shabby chic, utterly different and, perhaps most importantly, easy to live with. A door to the front of the house leads to


two useful storage vaults, while from the rear of the kitchen there’s a cosy snug with a special sash window, which opens rather like French doors, straight out to the garden. Considering the city centre proximity,


you’re not short changed on outside space either; the garden is paved with limestone with a raised area at the end – ideal for summer barbecues – and there’s also a vegetable plot made from railway sleepers. You’ll also find a large single garage, accessible from both a door at the rear of the garden and Julian Road. A rare find indeed in central Bath, and a unique opportunity if ever we saw one. BL
