Charming Georgian house on the outskirts of Bath
This property was a three storey Grade II listed late Georgian/early Regency house on the outskirts of Bath. The house was in need of a complete refurbishment, which included new electrics, plumbing and central heating system, as well as repairs to the roof and stonework. We designed all the internal spaces to create a comfortable and relaxed home.
With its lower ground ceilings and quirky layout, the characterful house had a more intimate and cosy feel than a typical Georgian townhouse. We wanted the design to be sensitive to the period yet contemporary in feel. The owner loves splashes of colour and had a collection of attractive artworks which have been integrated into the design.
The house is double fronted and has accommodation over three floors.
The property is entered through a reception hallway with a ‘snug’ living room with open fireplaceto one side. The kitchen/ dining room is on the other side of the hall, and has access to the garden via the utility room (which is a later addition). There is also a cloakroom.
On the first floor there is a magnificent living room as well as the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom.
On the upper floor is a guest bedroom, a bathroom and a third bedroom which has instead been turned into a craft room.
The house has a beautiful, well-established walled garden with flower beds and a vegetable garden.
The dark grey kitchen and utility room was by Bath based Hobsons Choice, and we chose the colour scheme, furniture and accessories to work with this. We decorated throughout using a palette of paint from Farrow & Ball and Little Greene, replaced all the bathroom suites, installed new light fittings and column radiators. We chose rugs, blinds, wallpaper and free standing furniture. We also designed bespoke fitted wardrobes, storage and bookshelves, provided along with the building work, by Newmans of Bath.
This beautiful Georgian house has charm rather than grandeur and is comfortable and contemporary in a relaxed way.
Our client loves her home and being close to the centre of such a vibrant and cultural city, while in the calm and picturesque surrounding of her house and garden.
