Vacation Rental Description
Arriving at 30 Great Pulteney Street you are sure to be dazzled by the magnificent architecture and grand symmetry of this splendid boulevard, unchanged since the 18th century giving you the opportunity to experience a style of gracious living from an age when Bath was the very centre of the civilised world.
This luxurious elegant apartment is in a prime location and will appeal to those seeking hotel quality accommodation but with the total freedom of a private apartment.
Great Pulteney Street was commissioned by Sir William Pulteney, designed by the architect Thomas Baldwin and completed in 1789. At over 1000 feet long and 100 feet wide, the road itself is the widest and grandest in Bath & is reputed to be the longest boulevard of its kind in Europe.
Great Pulteney Street is one of only a few Grade 1 listed (of outstanding or national architectural or historic interest) streets in Bath. The apartment is on the favoured 1st floor - the piano nobile or principal floor of the original house with larger windows & grand high ceilings characteristic of Georgian architecture.
Bath is a World Heritage Site and has a variety of theatres, museums, and other cultural and sporting venues with events going on throughout the year.
The very centre of Bath is just a short level stroll away & all the major attractions can be reached by foot including:
