Marlborough Buildings is considered to be one of Bath's finest addresses and No. 15 is one of three original houses first built and amongst the largest. The house has views across to the Royal Crescent and crescent lawn and to the rear are super views of the allotments.
The building has been superbly renovated and, as such, provides purchasers with the opportunity of buying a completely newly refurbished maisonette presented to exacting standards.

The period features are extensive and include wonderful cornicing with lower friezes, sash windows, marble fireplaces and some working shutters.
The city centre is within walking distance and offers an excellent range of shopping facilities, together with many other amenities including a number of fine restaurants, the Theatre Royal, and the mainline Bath Spa Railway Station connecting to London/Paddington. Bath also benefits from an excellent selection of schools together with good sporting amenities. Bristol lies approximately 12 miles to the north west, giving good access to the M5 motorway and South Wales. Junction 18 of the M4 lies approximately 10 miles north of Bath. Local shops and amenities are also located nearby in St James's Square and Margaret's Buildings. The property is listed Grade II as being of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
Where eighteenth century elegance meets with twenty first century luxury. Bath's glorious heritage is conserved within the walls of this iconic building, positioned adjacent to what is arguably Bath's best address: the world famous Royal Crescent. It is easy to imagine the gracious lifestyle of its original inhabitants as you walk through the grandeur of the house, with its sweeping stone cantilevered staircase, fifteen foot high ceilings and magnificent sash windows. The carefully preserved grand kitchen adjoins the flood lit drawing room which overlooks the south west facing walled garden and Royal Victoria Park. The original butler's silver safe and wine cellar add to its unique sense of history.
No attention to detail has been spared by Concept Interior Design and Greengauge Mechanical Engineers with the latest technology including acoustic sound proofing, lighting, audio visual equipment, high end appliances and woodburners providing the highest specification. The apartment has been decorated in an understated range of contemporary colours and textures.

Entering the building via the front door, you are struck immediately by the grandeur of the house. There is an inner entrance door with Georgian fanlight above.

The back door leads out to a front courtyard with two vaults, one being fully converted to a laundry room.
To the rear of the house is a fine drawing room with pitch pine stripped floors and a charming marble surround. On the half landing is a door out to the garden and there is a useful and well fitted cloakroom.
The staircase then takes you to the bedroom level where you find the most amazing bathroom within a large vault converted to house a beautiful roll top bath with double sink unit and some excellent lighting. Off here is a doorway that leads through to original wine vaults.
