Great Pulteney Street is one of the most highly desired addresses in the city alongside The Royal Crescent and The Circus. At the eastern end of this grand street you have the Holbourne Museum and Sydney Gardens, whilst at the western end you have the gateway to the city via the famous Pulteney Bridge. This particular property sits on the corner of William Street which gives direct access onto 'The Rec' recreation ground which also houses Bath Rugby Club. You are quite simply a short walk from everything the city has to offer.
Great Pulteney Street is a grand thoroughfare that connects Bathwick on the east of the River Avon with the City of Bath via Pulteney Bridge. Commissioned by Sir William Pulteney, it was designed by the architect Thomas Baldwin and completed in 1789. At over 1,000 feet (300 m) long and 100 feet (30 m) wide, the road itself is the widest and the grandest in Bath. However, the architect, Baldwin, designed only the façades of buildings. A variety of owners acquired plots of land along the new street and built the actual structures behind the façades, so that while the street has a visual external unity, the buildings have different internal features, some having been designed as private houses and others as hotels.
Great Pulteney Street was intended to form the centre of a much larger geometrical layout of grand streets, squares and circuses. However, the scheme by Thomas Baldwin to create a whole new town south of the river was hit by financial panic as a result of the French Revolution and the collapse of many banks – including the one funding Baldwin’s grand plans.
We have provided two sets of floor plans on the listing. One shows the total square footage including all vaults and courtyards (3,093 Sq.Ft) and the other shows the actual habitable living accommodation (2,324 Sq.Ft).
