Architect: Brooks Stacey Randall Fursdon
Positioned on a quiet mews in the centre of Bath, is this uniquely converted former coach house with courtyard garden. The design for the space was originally by architects Brooks Stacey Randall Fursdon and the build was completed by Bath-based architects Hughes Stapleton in 2001.
The wonderfully open-plan house is entered directly from the mews. The ground floor is a single large space with reception area, kitchen, and glazed rear extension with access to a small courtyard garden. Double doors, that replace the original coach doors, open onto the secluded mews. Upstairs is another single space with seating area at the front and bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, at the back.
The house has been designed to give a great sense of light and space, enhanced by the dual-aspect rooms and glazed-roof extension which maximise the intake of natural light.
The interiors have been sleekly designed to include bespoke Bulthaup kitchen, with Miele appliances and Hansgrohe taps, wonderful Bisque radiators, square white marble tiles and Bulthaup wall units. The shower rooms are fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware and Hansgrohe & Huppe shower fittings and taps. A striking glass and brushed-steel staircase connects the two floors.
The Coach House has great potential for renovation having already been converted into living space. Although planning permission has not been applied for, plans have been drawn to rearrange the upstairs accommodation to create two / three bedrooms, each with a shower room. One plan includes an extension over the ground floor bathroom at the rear.
Pulteney Mews lies in a popular residential area of Bath surrounded by the grandeur of the city’s Georgian architecture. From the house there is easy access to both the city centre and beautiful surrounding countryside. There are a number of renowned schools within close proximity including King Edward’s, Prior Park and Monkton Combe. Also nearby is the University of Bath, with its world-class sporting facilities, and The Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel, which has a leisure club.
Bath is well-known as being one of the world’s most beautiful cities and has been designated as a World Heritage Site thanks to its historic architecture. It has a broad range of well-regarded shops, restaurants, museums, galleries, theatres and sports facilities. The city is surrounded by countryside and is on the edge of the Cotswolds. There is a train station that runs services to London Paddington (journey time approx. 85 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx. 15 minutes). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 10 miles to the north.
