Horstmann Villas consists of two detached properties on the edge of Horstmann Close, which have been divided into purpose-built flats and maisonettes. Horstmann Close as a whole is a prestigious development which centers around a private, leafy square, and was completed by Crest Nicholson in the mid-2000’s.
Entered via a short flight of external steps, this particular maisonette offers bright and spacious accommodation across two floors, with the open-plan living room/kitchen/diner on the first floor, and the two double bedrooms and luxury bathroom below. It provides high-end fixtures and fittings throughout, along with period features, such as the high ceilings, and wooden sash-style windows (updated with uPVC double glazing).
The maisonette benefits from a private, decked-courtyard, and two allocated parking spaces, which are located within a secure, barrier-controlled car park at the front of the villa.
Horstmann Close is situated off Newbridge Road, in the popular Newbridge area of Bath. It is just around the corner from Chelsea Road, which offers a variety of local amenities, including a bakery, café, deli, green-grocers, florist, convenience store, several hairdressers, a restaurant and more. There are several parks in the vicinity – including the Royal Victoria Park – a myriad of public houses, and attractive walks across the Cotswold Way National Trail. Bath city centre and Bath Spa station are a level walk of approx. 1.5 miles distance along the Upper Bristol Road, which is also well-serviced by frequent buses.
Bath is a World Heritage Site and offers a wonderful array of chain and independent shopping, a fine selection of restaurants, cafes and wine bars, and a myriad of other cultural activities. World class sporting facilities are available at the nearby Bath Rugby and Cricket clubs, and at Bath University. There are many excellent primary and secondary schools in the area (state and private alike).
