Kensington Place is an impressive Georgian terrace set back from the London Road adjacent to to Kensington Meadows. Living in this part of Bath is to live within part of the rich history of the city, in buildings dating back to the 18th Century. And today the location is perfect for a level walk to the city centre, enjoying the delights of Larkhall village and stepping out into the green countryside. Behind Kensington Place is an open meadow with green space to walk a dog. It leads to a bridge with access to the canal. Residents of Kensington Place will use the canal to access the city centre, stroll to the pubs of Bathampton, and even to the lido at Cleveland Pools that will open soon. Larkhall village is thriving with independent shops and plenty of buzz on a Saturday morning. Pick from the greengrocers, buy flowers for the weekend, shop in the quality butchers for a BBQ and relax in a choice of cafes. The east side of Bath is good for access to the M4 up the A46 and the main train station is a 1.3 mile walk.

This apartment offers two levels of accommodation that feel tucked away, private and plentiful. The property is period and modern with the benefit of two bathrooms and large amounts of parking that is often hard to find when house hunting. There is storage throughout including a large cupboard in the sitting room, the stairway that leads up to the common area, and the cellar vault off the kitchen. The garden is a delight with almost 100 feet of beautiful lawn and garden. The property is in good condition throughout with central heating provided from a combi-boiler in the hall.

There is access to the property from both the front and the rear. The private front door is down steps from the pavement. The entrance hall has built-in storage for coats and shoes. The vault to the front has been used as a third bedroom. From here the sitting room offers plenty of style and character with flagstone floor and Bath stone fireplace. The landing leads to the two bedrooms with an en-suite to the master and built in wardrobes in the second bedroom.

The floor below has more storage off the hall and a spacious bathroom with double vanity. The kitchen works really well as a social area as there is space for a large table to sit and chat over a cup of tea or have friends over for a dinner party. The utility area is tucked away next to the door to the garden. The vault off the kitchen will work well as storage for tools as well as having plenty of space for the odd bottle of wine.

Outside is wonderful private garden and parking. A path leads to the 100 foot enclosed garden that benefits from afternoon sunshine. This enclosed space would be perfect for summer parties with electric providing wall lights. At the rear of the garden a concrete pad has been prepared for a shed. The gate leads to a large shared parking area accessed from Kensington Place. Here there is space for cars or even a small motorhome or van.
