“As a busy professional who travels for work a lot, I needed help finding a property in the competitive Bath market. When I was recommended to City to Country I wasn’t sure what to expect, but they supported me throughout: from filtering properties and undertaking preliminary viewings, right through to negotiations and keeping the conveyencing process on track to completion!
The communication was excellent during the whole process and Mike’s expertise was invaluable, especially as I was a first time buyer. I am convinced that had it not been for Mike’s help I would not have found a property this year – an invaluable service that I would not hesitate to recommend, thank you Mike!”
Bath is a beautiful city and a stunning place to live in many respects, at its centre it was mainly built in the Georgian era of honey coloured stone and is rightly famous for stunning crescents such as the Royal Crescent and Lansdown crescent, both being two of the most desirable places to own a home in this elegant city, as well as wide avenues of lovely terraced houses.
Many properties have views over the city which can bring an added dimension to your home. Of course the famous Roman-built baths are a major draw. The city became a World Heritage Site in 1987.
The many attractions of the city both in terms of culture and architecture ensure a thriving property market for those looking to enhance their standard of living.
The many charms of Bath
There are five theatres in Bath with the Theatre Royal being perhaps the best known, who always put on a particular good Christmas pantomime, which is always worth a viewing before perhaps heading to the Christmas market. The shopping is based in the centre in quaint pedestrian alleyways as well as on the main Milsom Street and is varied from small boutiques to department stores and most of the big high street chains which can cater to designer tastes or something a bit more unusual.
There are world class restaurants and independent food shops as well as excellent more traditional venues. Museums are well represented for a day out and you can choose between including to Holburne museum with its extensive range of oil paintings and many other smaller venues such as The Jane Austen museum (a one time resident)
