This cosy flat is located amongst a handsome row of classic Georgian terrace houses, built around 1790 by Thomas Baldwin, as a part of the Bathwick Estate scheme.
With a private entrance, a sweet little outdoor space at the back and within 5 mins walk to cultural gemstones on the eastside of the city centre like Great Pulteney Street and The Holburne Museum.
Back in Georgian times, the basement is where the kitchen is, food is stored in the vaults and the housekeeper and cook are often given rooms on this floor away from the maids that slept in the attic.
Inspired by Hannah Glasse, an English cookery writer of the 18th century. Her first cookery book published in 1747, The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy, became the best-selling recipe book that century. She purposely used plain language to target the book to the masses, unlike most cookbooks published until that point which were written in French.
We imagined this to be the home of an aspiring cook. Decorated in historic colours that compliment the original cast iron features, as well as putting in vintage brass and copper pots for the theme.
Modern living style with open plan kitchen,
a large dining space next to a comfortable lounging area to wind down and relax in
the evenings. Large 43-inch smart TV is mounted on the wall for a sleek and contemporary feel.
The bedroom faces the garden, overlooking the little outdoor patio space. It has two 90cm beds that are pushed together to make a large king-size bed. Width of 1.8cm when together, and quite stable so you would not "fall into a gap" when lying in the middle.
Although limited in height of 1.93cm, the large walk-in shower is very spacious at 1.2m by 1m. Details like wall panelling
and a sidelight adds to the heritage yet modern ambience.
