When one thinks of Bath, what usually comes to mind is a serene Georgian Crescent; a gently curved façade of composed, very English grandeur. Classical proportions, golden Bath stone, iron railings, and an air of palatial elegance.
That place in your mind is Somerset Place.
Just a short walk from the heart of Bath, Somerset Place is one of the city's quintet of classic Georgian Crescents: a parade of majestic Grade I listed properties on its own quiet road, and part of the reason for Bath’s status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The first phase of the restoration of Somerset Place involved reinstating the vertical integrity of the original Georgian Townhouses, through which the previous owners, Bath Spa University, had created lateral links. The external fabric of the houses was then restored and the individual houses sold to owner occupiers to complete their own personalised fit outs.
A limited number of maisonettes and lateral apartments have now been released for sale.
