A Unique Historic House with Old Fashioned Shop in Bath

On a pretty historic street in the English city of Bath, you will find a historic building comprising a shop, a three-bedroom home, and a separate two-bedroom mews house.

The commercial space in the Georgian part of Margaret’s Buildings is the residence of the locally loved interiors studio Berdoulat. The former stables, built in the 1840s, have been converted into a three-bedroom home. And beyond that, the converted pub that was built around 1800 is now a separate two-bedroom house. 

Interior studio Berdoulat has restored this unique building in Bath. They carried out in-depth research into the historic building and managed to honor and restore its many original details.

The building can be accessed in two ways: the shop front on Margaret’s Buildings and another entrance point on Circus Place.

The bedroom has been painted in ‘Berdoulat Green,’ a bespoke color created in collaboration with Farrow and Ball. The color matches the original Georgian green found in this part of the house.
