Designed by Bath-educated architect David Hadfield, Charters has been 10 years in the making and represents a genuine labour of love for the developer. In consideration of its historic surroundings, Charters appears as a pair of semi-detached villas with Bath Stone Ashlar frontage and transparent glass wings which enhance the contemporary re-definition of neighbouring properties.

The sumptuous finishes and exquisite detail will stimulate immediate feelings of comfort, safety and luxury from the moment you enter via the secure, keyless front door and the elegant colour accents in the kitchen and adjoining rooms instantly communicate sleek chic and indubitable style.

Superlative energy efficiency and the essential principles of sustainability are at the forefront of the heating and ventilation system, providing moderation of the internal climate whilst maximising the use of natural energy sources and minimising the environmental impact of this incomparable 2 double bedroom family apartment.

Charters will undoubtedly appeal to those wishing to contribute to a select community where panache and a desire for excellence are paramount.
