Property description

The Artpad is a beautiful, one bedroom, ground floor apartment in an impressive Georgian town house overlooking the famous Great Pulteney Street. It is just a five minute walk over Pulteney bridge to the city centre plethora of cafes, restaurants and shops and two hundred meters from the Holburne museum.
This elegant apartment has been recently refurbished to a high standard with modern touches but also in keeping with its Georgian history. It is decorated with several local artists work which can be purchased or just enjoyed.
The apartment consist of the following:

A beautiful, large drawing room overlooking Great Pulteney Street. There are two tall arched sash windows, a decorative fire place, gloriously high ceilings, chandeliers and cornices which make the apartment feel grand, light and inviting. There are three sofas, one of which becomes a sofabed to provide additional sleeping space if needed (additional cost). A flat screen TV/DVD player with BT Vision channels and super fast wifi is available throughout the apartment.

The bedroom with a Grand super king size bed has been furnished with both antique and modern touches to ensure comfort and grandeur. With its high corniced ceiling and chandelier this room feels romantic and inviting and is separated from the drawing room by the original full height Georgian marriage doors. Bed linen, towels, robes, blanket and hair dryer are supplied.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a local family who have renovated the apartment especially for holiday rental. We live in the Garden Flat and can provide any information you need. Please feel free to contact us. The building has been in the family for a few generations so if you are interested in history we can find out for you.

Why the Owner Chose Bath:
The property is situated in one of the most beautiful and grandest streets in Bath. It’s situated on the ground floor making access very easy. We always thought it would make an ideal holiday apartment due to its location and Georgian feel. We have just finished having the apartment totally renovated so it will feel clean and new but with all the Georgian splendour that makes it so special.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This apartment has been called The Artpad as all the artworks in the apartment have been supplied and done by local artists - all pieces of work are available to buy. We will be changing the artwork on a rotational basis with other local artists every 6 months. The apartment is also so centrally located that you have the ability to walk into the city in moments - fantastic. You can enjoy an evening out in one of the many restaurants or bars and simply walk back to your apartment. There is so much art and history to see in Bath and so many walks and bus tours. There is simply too much to explain and needs to be seen in person.
