Eagle-eyed viewers might recognise this minimalist Bath loft – the converted ballroom is part of Ladymead House and was offered for sale a few years back by its photographer owner.
Grade II-listed, the live/work space is back on the market via The Modern House for £975,000, having undergone a spartan re-style that heightens its minimalist vibes. Egyptian marble tiles and white walls contrast mouldings on the barrel-vaulted ceiling, which rises to a height of 15 ft and is crowned by a glass dome.
There’s an all-white kitchen off the main space, which is open plan except for a freestanding ‘temple’ volume, which houses a bedroom and an office cubby. A concealed staircase accesses the top of the volume, where there’s space for a sitting area overlooking the gallery floor or a potential secondary sleeping area.
A further 1,400 loft space runs the entire length of the living space and belongs to the Bath property. It’s presently used for storage and has no permanent staircase access, but (subject to planning) it could be converted.
Ladymead House was built during the Regency period – though parts of the estate date back to the 1500s – and sits at the heart of Bath’s ‘artist quarter’.
