Article image House hunters looking for a new home in Bath can move into a brand new property on the banks of the River Avon that has taken inspiration from one of the Georgian period’s most famed poets.

The Byron, 5 Western Terrace, is the perfect example of a modern interpretation on Bath’s famed Regency architecture and forms part of the Albert Crescent phase.

The four-storey, four-bedroom townhouse, which has been designed by renowned architect Alison Brooks, oozes elegance while the layout lends itself to a refined form of living unlike anything else available in the city.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: “The layout and design of The Byron is, from a living perspective, poetry in motion!

“It truly demonstrates the creativity of what has been achieved here at Bath Riverside and whoever is lucky enough to purchase this property will find it a truly inspiring place to live.”

The only properties in the world heritage to be located on the banks of the River Avon the sight and feel of this beautifully proportioned townhouse wouldn’t be out of place in one of Byron’s famed poems.

The specification is just as impressive and includes underfloor heating, oak staircase, fully fitted Alno kitchen with Siemens appliances and luxury Villeroy & Boch bathroom suites complemented by Hansgrohe taps and fittings.

On the ground floor the hall leads through to the kitchen / breakfast area and highly specified kitchen which in turn provides access out onto the large terrace. With views of the River Avon, the terrace is a beautiful feature of The Byron, extending the feeling of space.
