We’re going to Bath, a beautiful historic city in England. Here stands this gorgeous townhouse, that has been carefullty renovated by its current owners.
The townhouse is also called “Gainsborough House” because rumor has it that painter Thomas Gainsborough has lived here. But either way the house has beautiful historic touches.
When the current owners bought the townhouse it was divided into two flats. The owners turned it back into a spacious family home divided over 5 floors.
The interiors are what you can describe peaceful. It is mainly decorated in natural color hues like beige and grey. But there is a little colorful surprise. Keep reading to see it.
I’ll admit, when I’m searching for homes to post on The Nordroom and an exterior like this is my first glance of the home I’m immediately interested. Wow!
We start in the kitchen. A large fluted kitchen island with marble top sits in the center. Blakes of London kitchen cabinets hide the appliances.
The kitchen has a large sash window with a window seat to enjoy the view of Southern Bath.
On the same floor as the kitchen is also this sitting room with marble fireplace, oak floor and soft grey walls.
On the first floor you’ll find the impressive master en-suite. A large bedroom is decorating in peaceful color tones. A marble fireplace sits on one wall with bespoke wardrobes on either side. The room has oak herringbone floors.
The en-suite bathroom is a beauty. The bathroom is by Porter Bathrooms and has a Rosa Antico marble shower, bespoke marble topped bath and a marble top vanity unit.
On the second floor are two more bedrooms with a family bathroom.
And here is the pink surprise! And not just pink, it’s bubblegum pink! The sitting room/media room on the lower ground floor is a cheerful surprise in this neutral colored townhouse.
The sliding panels you can see in the image above are made with Gucci Heron wallpaper. Behind these panels is the television.
The garden is lovely and divided into three sections. First you have the terrace which is surrounded by colorful plants such as wisteria, climbing hydrangea, fig and pear trees.
From the terrace you look at the parterre garden with plants and flowers surrounding a raised stone flower bed.
The third part of the garden is open lawn surrouned by shrubs and rose borders. From there you can enter Hedgemead Park.
I love the combination of historic architecture with serene, modern interiors. This townhouse in Bath is now for sale at Strutt and Parker for £1,975,000
