Completed in 1789, this handsome street was commissioned by the fabulously wealthy Sir William Pulteney and designed by the architect Thomas Baldwin. Over 300m long and 30m wide, it has been a favourite of Bath’s visiting nobility and high society, featuring in Jane Austen’s ‘Northanger Abbey’ and in the films ‘Vanity Fair’ and ‘The Duchess.’

The apartment rooms are rich with original Georgian detailing, from ornate cornicing, cosy wood panelling and stately fire-places, to original floorboards, deep alcoves and large sash windows. Capacious sofas, vibrant oriental rugs, crystal chandeliers and a dash of modernity are mixed with flourish for an exemplary English interior.

Wide steps at street level lead down into this quiet apartment where you enter a smart lobby with a marble topped chest and vintage chair. The pretty cloakroom has a WC and hand-basin.

The beautiful living room with wood panelling and Persian rug has a sumptuous country club atmosphere. 2 large velvet sofas comfortably seat 4, along with 2 deep armchairs and 2 delightful window seats under a pair of elegant sash windows. There is a large marble fireplace with coal effect gas fire and a padded fire surround. Two arched alcoves that previously held a bread oven and range have been re-appointed, to house a large TV with Freeview (Netflix available with your own subscription code), Wi-Fi, a reading lamp and charming ornaments. A filigree grandfather clock and antique tables add their charm and the bespoke bookcases either side of the door to the dining room have a wide collection of novels, biographies and histories.

The atmospheric dining room papered in Mulberrys’ ‘Flying Ducks,’ has tall sash windows opening onto a pretty little walled courtyard with ornate iron balcony and steps down to the outdoor table and chairs for 4. Beyond are glimpses of the majestic trees of Henrietta Gardens. Centre stage is a large dining table and upholstered chairs for 6 to 8 guests. There is a charming Art Noveau decorative fireplace with an ornate gold mirror above, a couple of antique chests and a large sofa for 3. Alcove cupboards on either side of the fireplace hold utility items and plenty of drinks glasses, white china and tableware.

The white galley kitchen has black granite tops and is efficiently laid out with a 5 ring gas hob, 2 electric ovens, a micro-wave, dishwasher, washing machine and a small fridge. There is a handy food processor and hand blender. Opposite the front entrance in the vaults is an additional fridge, a large chest freezer and an automatic dryer.

On the lower ground floor is another smart lobby with patterned rug and antique linen chest, leading to 3 peaceful double bedrooms with original framed art. Bath is a world renowned spa city and built over bubbling underground thermal waters, so the bedrooms have dehumidifiers to alleviate any build-up of water vapour. On this level is another spacious cloakroom with large basin vanity unit, magnified mirror and a WC.

The luxurious principle bedroom in blue and gold has a 6’ double upholstered sleigh bed with a buttoned bench at the foot. A large freestanding slipper bath with hand held shower head is positioned to face a little decorative fireplace with a wall-mounted TV above (with Freeview only, or your own Netflix code). There is a small dressing table and chair and an alcove cupboard with hanging and shelving storage, with 2 further occasional chairs. Steps lead up to little French doors opening out onto the courtyard above.

This room has a spacious and traditional white tiled en-suite shower room with terracotta flooring and large antique mirrors. A large shower has an overhead shower head only. There is a large hand-basin with shelf space for toiletries and a WC.

Another large double bedroom in cream with blue and green floral accents has a sumptuous 5’ double bed opposite a large built-in storage cupboard with hanging rail and chest of drawers. A door from this bedroom leads into a smart modern sauna for 3 with stone floor and shower room equipped with an overhead rainfall shower and a handheld shower. A frosted glazed door opens to an outer courtyard with filtered light from above. Additionally, a little en-suite cloakroom tucked under the stairs has a large hand-basin (with restricted head room), a shelf space for toiletries and a WC.

The final double bedroom in heather and russet has a comfortable 5’ bed with night stands on either side, a hanging rail in an alcove and a small chest of drawers. A window alcove has an extensive padded window seat with plenty of cushions.

Testimonials

Excellent property. The pictures look amazing but don’t do the place justice at all. A wonderful space in a wonderful city
Georgian Great Pulteney Maxim - 2020-09-05
The flat has great character, is well equipped and in a great location.
Georgian Great Pulteney Nick - 2020-08-28
A lovely and spacious apartment 5 mins from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Beautifully appointed space with comfortable furnishings and beds. Lovely park behind the apartment where we could walk the dog each day, as well as Sydney Gardens which were 5 mins up the road. Easy access to the canal path from here, for longer walks. We didn’t use the sauna as it was too hot whilst we were in Bath. Would be a great feature in the colder months though. The kitchen was excellently stocked with essential bits and pieces. Would stay again when in Bath.

Perfect Retreat for Dog and Family

After being in Lockdown, we were looking forward to our trip to Bath and we were not disappointed with the facilities at the apartment, Laine was very helpful during the check in process and the information provided was very informative. The only thing I would say is that you need to keep the dehumidifiers on and empty regular in the guest rooms. Apart from that the roll top bath and beds were very comfortable! We walked everywhere as you and with two parks within 5 mins of walking for the dog, it was really prefect! We will be back for sure.
