Number 26 New King Street is a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse in a street of similar terraced properties, including one which is now the Herschel Museum of Astronomy. It's an attractive building, with a classic, columned portico framing the front door and large panelled windows to each floor.
Inside, an elegant hallway has period architectural details including an archway and curved dado rail. There are two good sized living rooms on this floor (currently arranged as one room); both rooms have fireplaces (one working) and several built-in cupboards.
The lower ground floor has good-height ceilings and is light, thanks to its dual aspect windows. The dining room faces south, has a window and doors to the garden, while the kitchen has two large windows and a glass-panelled door onto the front courtyard.
The kitchen is packed with historical features: flagstone floor, original stove (next to the newer gas AGA) and floor-to-ceiling dresser. There's an island unit with breakfast bar at the centre of the room, a double ceramic sink at the courtyard window, with worktops and storage units either side, and a door to a utility area and storage in the pristine, tanked vault. At the rear of this floor, there's a shower room and WC.
On the first floor, two generous bedrooms have interconnecting doors. The larger room is currently set up as another living space; it has a fireplace with alcoves either side, perfect for storage.
The second floor is another light and bright space - the large windows on the hallway half landings and in all the rooms give this family home a relaxing feel. There's a bedroom and luxe bathroom here with a roll top bath, separate shower and two washbasins and mirrors, side by side. The third floor has a spacious landing and two further bedrooms.
A small, front courtyard is paved and perfect for easy access from the kitchen to the laundry area or an outside seating area. The south-facing, walled, rear garden is accessed through the dining room. A paved dining terrace is close to the house, a path flows across the lawn to a raised border at the rear where there's a gate out to a council-owned carpark (for which there is a waiting list, or alternatively, there is zoned parking on New King Street).

New King Street is conveniently located in the city centre, with all of its amenities and leisure facilities – including Royal Victoria Park with 57 acres of open parkland and botanical gardens – within easy walking distance. Bath has a wide range of independent retailers, restaurants, museums, theatre and art galleries. The city also has a wide range of excellent local schools and the University of Bath has an international reputation for its high standards and Olympic training facilities. Bath has a mainline rail link to London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads from Bath Spa.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
