I’ll Take This: Flat in Bath

Bath in England is one of my favourite cities with its gorgeous old abbey, its Roman Spas, and its Regency architecture. When I saw this flat, situated right on the Pulteney Bridge and the weir, I just fell in love like.image

The Pulteney Bridge was designed by Robert Adam in 1774 in the Palladian style. It’s one of only four bridges in the world to have shops spanning the inside of both sides. The bridge is 148 feet long and 58 feet wide. imageThe Avon River passed beneath is and then forms a weir, which was used as a stand-in in the film version of Les Miz. image

The flat is on the second/third floor and has an amazing view over the river towards the Bath Abbey and the town.imageThe main living spaces are on the water side, while the kitchen and bath are on the street side.

It’s two bedrooms, with a possible third in the loft. image


There is a lot of the building’s original detailing remaining, as you can see in this image. image

It would make a great bolt-hole or pied a terre if you needed to get away!image

It is a very reasonable £585,000 and it’s already under offer!


  1. Love it. Been looking at Bath as a possible place to visit in May. I've been a couple of times, but we were planning a week in a flat, such as this. The plans are gyrating wildly at the moment, (as per usual).

    1. Actually, I am informed it was this flat we were looking at. Obviously it's not going to be available for holiday lettings now. Shall just have to buy it.

  2. We were there nearly two years ago and loved it, loved the train ride from London. loved our hilarious tour guide, loved our pub lunch, and I could very much love this gorgeous flat, if only someone would buy it for me.

  3. Me too! I love the loft area and the curved wall.

  4. Perfect. I plan to retire to Bath, it is my favourite place in the world. My husband and I had our first date there, it's a very special place. (He would faint if he heard me refer to it as anything other than a boozy-lunch-and-a-snog...)

  5. Gorgeous setting. Thanks so much for bringing this to our eyes; only wish I had the financial means to purchase this wonderful.flat...

  6. I, too, love Bath. Gorgeous, gorgeous city.
