New prop­er­ties for Bath

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

THE city of Bath will wel­come a new neigh­bour­hood once a for­mer Min­istry of De­fence site is con­verted into a de­vel­op­ment of 204 Clas­si­cal prop­er­ties. The aim is for it to have a vil­lage at­mos­phere: sit­u­ated in a stretch of park­land by the Ken­net and Avon Canal, the de­vel­op­ment, Hol­burne Park, en­joys long views across Bath’s city cen­tre. Made of Bath stone and nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, houses will com­bine pe­riod char­ac­ter with con­tem­po­rary fit­tings; builders Hardrock De­vel­op­ments have called upon Robert Adam, the ar­chi­tect who cre­ated the Duchy of Corn­wall’s Pound­bury in Dorset. Work has now started and the first prop­er­ties should be com­pleted in early to mid 2017. CP
