Johnstone Street, Bath, Somerset, BA2
No 5 Johnstone Street forms part of the original Bathwick Estate circa late 18th century. A hugely ambitious project of it’s time and to include Great Pulteney Street, Henrietta Park and Gardens, Pulteney Bridge and Laura Place. This fine example of a Georgian Townhouse is as ‘current’ today as it was in its conception; a period home in a residential area close to all amenities central Bath has to offer. Arranged over six floors with almost 6,000sqft of accommodation this is now very much a family home with modern infrastructure, contemporary kitchen and bathrooms and stylish décor all in keeping with the retained wealth of architectural detail of the period. The accommodation layout is flexible and the large rooms with high ceilings can evolve to suit, such as a growing family or working from home.
A very desirable and valuable feature included with this property is the rear access through the garden to a large double mews garage.
The east facing enclosed town garden is an additional ‘room’ designed for minimal maintenance and perfect for morning coffee, evening soirees or just relaxation. The garden room from the house provides easy access and facilities for drinks and refreshments. There is rear access to the mews garage. To the front of the property is a West-facing courtyard accessed at pavement level.
Right on the edge of the city centre of the historical and architectural magnificence that is Bath, Johnstone Street is a period residential ‘no through’ road. For sports enthusiasts, it is neighbours with the renowned ‘Rec’ home to Bath Rugby Club. It also has rear access to the open grounds of Bath Cricket Club. For recreational outdoor activities such as dog walking, strolling or jogging, just cross Pulteney Street to access the seven acres of Henrietta Park. Or, go the end of Pulteney Street to admire Sydney Park and Gardens. Maybe visit the latest exhibition at The Holburne Museum and enjoy a light brunch at The Garden Café. Cross Pulteney Bridge and enter The Parade Gardens and enjoy the most delightful aspects, taking in The Abbey the riverside and weir. This truly is a spectacular city location yet surrounded by acres of some of the most accessible and stunning parks and open space.
Bath is a very cosmopolitan city. It caters for all: Tourists, academics, the arts, those in the media, sports enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and retirees.
