MILES’S BUILDINGS, BATH
MILES’S BUILDINGS, BATH Introduction A classic example of glorious Georgian architecture, designed by John Wood the Younger circa 1768 and the only one on this terrace of elegant Grade II listed homes to come to the market in over 10 years. Situated in this pedestrian only and therefore unusually quiet, city centre location, this attractive and impressive 5/6 bedroom residence offers versatile, period accommodation over 5 floors and is accompanied by a sizeable garden accentuated by a mature fig tree and overlooked from the drawing room. Fabulous and in a tucked away position just off George Street, moments from Milsom Street. Miles Buildings is situated at the very heart of Bath, in a tucked away position just off George Street and a stone’s throw from Milsom Street. No. 11 has has a comfortable, light and airy feel with a welcoming atmosphere, though still retaining its traditional appeal and styling. A number of the fascinating original character features are still very much in evidence, such as the sash windows with working shutters, original dresser and flagstone flooring in the kitchen with Smallbone fitted units and enchanting fireplaces. The walled gardens which are an absolute delight are very sizeable for its location and can be accessed from the house via the kitchen/breakfast room and garden room or, alternatively, from a side gate at street level.
