Built circa 1795, Percy Place is a Grade II Listed terrace, which is situated between Grosvenor and Kensington Place, and set back from the London Road. This garden apartment benefits from its own private entrance, through a small courtyard space.
The spacious living room is light and airy, due to the large sash windows, which overlook the private rear garden. A grand stone inglenook fireplace takes centre stage, and quirky features such as the ‘secret staircase’ are sure to be a talking point. This once led up to the next floor, but is now used as an attractive display for photos and pictures – and could easily be transformed into a useful storage facility.
The kitchen leads off the living room, and has modern units and ample preparation space. This could be extended (STPP), and the neighbours have set a precedent for this. French doors open out from the kitchen onto the patio, which is the ideal spot for a summer barbeque or an evening drink. The south facing garden is a peaceful and private space, due to the stone walls, and attractive trees and shrubs. At the end of the lawn is a villa-style summer house, which is fully insulated, and has electric points. This is currently being used as a music room/study space, but could be a fantastic home office.
Back inside the apartment, both of the double bedrooms overlook the front courtyard, and are equipped with plenty of built-in storage. The master bedroom is a well-appointed room, which has retained its original fireplace. The second bedroom has been crafted from a traditional vault space, and has a distinctive sloped ceiling, and natural light from several windows.
The bathroom has been designed as large wet room. With neutral tiles; granite counters and seating; subtle spotlights; a freestanding central shower; and generous bath tub; it is certainly a unique statement space.
The apartment is within easy walking distance of various local amenities, including a convenience shop, café and restaurant on the balustrade; a wide array of shops and public houses within Larkhall village; and a Morrisons Supermarket. It is a flat fifteen-minute walk to Bath City Centre, but the apartment is also situated close to several bus stops, which are frequently serviced. Bath City itself offers excellent national transport links, shops, restaurants, cinemas, a theatre, leisure centers and more.
