Get ready to feel the buzz of the town in a cosmopolitan bolthole primed for action in one of Bath’s premier addresses. Set in a listed curve of Georgian townhouses just minutes from the artisan quarter, the Thermae Baths and many more of Bath’s greatest hits, Paragon Townhouse is a slick slice of city action.
Sleeping 12 in six delicious bedrooms, Paragon Townhouse is how you do Bath in style. From the two roof terraces with their skyline panorama across to the Abbey and the wooded hills beyond, to the leather snug chairs, elegance runs quietly riot here. Kick your shoes off, pop a pod in the Nespresso, get a book going.
This is the kind of place where you linger over dinner, sipping wine and bringing out the port as you dip into a cheese board loaded with grapes and artisan bread. At night, it’s an easy five minutes’ slide into the beating heart of the High Street and its smorgasbord of independent shops, cafes, cocktail bars and smart eateries.
No gardens here – just a jaw-dropping sun terrace perfect for al-fresco dining, and balcony, both with a front-row seat on the busy buzz of the Walcot Street artisan quarter.
Wraparound glass balustrades add both safety and modernist sophistication to the view across the Bath skyline to the wooded hills beyond. Simply add cocktails or Cabernet Sauvignon and fine company.
Celebrate birthdays, Christmases, anniversaries and significant big-fat-zero birthdays in the big, bright, airy living room flooded with light through the floor-to-ceiling sash windows. Relax among soft neutrals that exude cool sophistication and slide out through the French doors to the balcony for a first-class ticket on the city panorama.
Need to snuggle up in the snug? The original kitchen, with its original features, including bread ovens, Belfast sinks and open fireplaces, is now a secondary living area. Curl up in a leather chair and unfurl some pages. Throwing a party? Head downstairs to a vast 550-sq-ft function room, once an artist’s studio, that you can rent as an added extra.
The open-plan kitchen/dining room to the rear’s a sociable space perfect for a family feast that goes on far too long. Chop and chunter away in the fully equipped kitchen with plenty space for prepping, cook on the two fan ovens and eat around the 12-seater farmhouse dining table or out on the main roof terrace with views across the city.
But why waste time cooking when you can lord it over Bath’s mansard rooftops? Call up our expert chefs from DineIndulge, Wild Fork West or Côte at Home for restaurant-quality meals brought direct to your table. Or just book handy drop-offs to reheat at your leisure. See you on the roof.
Fill up the big fridge/freezer from Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Larkhall Butcher’s and Avellino’s deli and stock up on fine wine from The Tasting Room. Grab delicious Philippino takeaways from JC’s Kitchen, Med-style meals from Cappadocia, and Cajun and creole from LJ Hugs.
Eat out at The Ivy Bath Brasserie on lobster linguine or chicken Milanese. Enjoy English, Indian and Asian influences on Menu Gordon Jones’ tasting menu, fine Italian at Sotto Sotto, or pan-roasted guinea fowl or herb falafel at The Circus. Or just tuck into hearty pies and sausages sloshed down with real ales and ciders at The Raven.
