                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2012

                              About the owner: We are a local family who have renovated the apartment especially for holiday rental. We live close by 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.
