Condo/Apartment
A Georgian gem, re-imagined with contemporary flair and dramatic flourishes. This handsome apartment for 2 in central Bath is a rare find, being close to city life and yet set in a tranquil location with the sound of bubbling water over the nearby Pulteney Weir. The train station is a 10 minute level walk. Johnstone Street is part of the architect Thomas Baldwin's grand late 18th century designs for the Bathwick extension to the city. It is named after William Johnstone who, in 1767 became Sir William Pulteney - reputedly the wealthiest man in Great Britain - and the landowner who created the world famous architectural heritage of the Pulteney Estate.

This handsome apartment for 2 in central Bath is a rare find, being close to city life and yet set in a tranquil location with the sound of bubbling water over the nearby Pulteney Weir. The train station is a 10 minute level walk. Johnstone Street is part of the architect Thomas Baldwin's grand late 18th century designs for the Bathwick extension to the city. It is named after William Johnstone who, in 1767 became Sir William Pulteney - reputedly the wealthiest man in Great Britain - and the landowner who created the world famous architectural heritage of the Pulteney Estate. The apartment has all the lovely historic detail for which Bath is renowned worldwide. There are high ceilings with elaborate decorative cornicing, light pouring from immense sash windows, a grand original decorative marble fireplace, sparkling chandeliers and to the front, views of an elegant Bath stone terrace with the distant vista of wooded hills. To the rear is a peaceful sunny balcony with an extending awning for rain or shine. This balcony is perfect for alfresco drinks or morning coffee while you take in the breath-taking view of the weir. Boldy decorated with verve in rich deep with paler greys contrasted with flashes of crimson and gold, the apartment blends striking historical detail with contemporary living. The open plan living, dining and kitchen area is framed by two huge arched sash windows, complete with working shutters. Between these is an elegant dining table to seat 4. There are 2 white sofas also seating 4 and a freeview TV on a sideboard containing books and games. The glossy grey fitted kitchen has a quartz stone worktop and includes an induction hob, an oven, a small dishwasher and fridge with freezer compartment. A large traditional alcove cupboard contains a microwave, crockery, cutlery, glassware and a good range of cooking equipment along with recycling crates. The glamorous bedroom has a sumptuous 6' double bed and impressive floor to ceiling windows with gracious French doors leading onto a stylish balcony overlooking Beazer Maze (a petite labyrinth), Pulteney Weir, and the city glimpsed through the trees. There is a large antique wardrobe with drawers and a dressing table with chair. Flanking the majestic fireplace with its plaster bust of Apollo are two delightful mustard coloured art deco chairs with side tables and lamps. Listening to the murmur of the river Avon, it's hard to believe that you are at the centre of a bustling city and only around the corner from Baths' historic sites, shops, bars and restaurants. The smartly tiled contemporary bathroom continues the blend of historic and contemporary style. There is a large walk-in shower and a hand-basin mounted on a smart cabinet with storage. Above is an opulent Georgian mirror with a mythical carved ‘Ho-ho' bird. Next is the WC with a deep shelf space for additional toiletries. A separate cupboard within the bathroom has a small washing machine and shelf space for laundry, whilst an alcove cupboard in the entrance lobby contains further utility items. The property comes with parking for 1 car for on street parking or is a 10 minute level walk to the Bath Spa train and coach stations.More

About the neighbourhood
The property is in a perfect position within Bath. So central to the high street and restaurants and yet tucked away down a quiet cul de sac street which overlooks the running waters of the weir. Around the corner from the property is the start of town and the street is lined both sides with restaurants, pubs, convenience stores and shops. Waitrose supermarket is only a few yards further and you will be on the high street in only a few minutes. The Bath Abbey, Roman Baths, and the Thermae Spa are within a 5 minute walk. Book a show at the Theatre Royal or an evening at Komedia comedy club.
