The ton is abuzz again with news, but it’s not Lady Whistledown’s latest salacious gossip circulating Mayfair and beyond. Instead, it’s one of the latest properties that has come on the market that has featured in the infamous Netflix series, Bridgerton.
The property, located on the Royal Crescent in the historic city of Bath, has become the talk of the ton due to its starring role in Bridgerton as the home of the Featheringtons. And now, you may have a chance to own this stunning home that featured in the popular series.
The flat currently up for sale is a neighbour of No1 Royal Crescent, which is used as the exterior for the home of the Featheringtons and is a museum dedicated to the Regency era in real life. Built in the 1760s-1770s, the perfectly-preserved architecture and views of Royal Victoria Park of the Royal Crescent are one of the main backdrops to the Bridgerton series.
However, this property further along the crescent certainly doesn’t lack in period features and like the entire row of houses, the flat is Grade I-listed and is in the prestigious area of Bath, which is itself a UNESCO World Heritage site. So, you may not have the title of duke or duchess, but having this Bath postcode as part of your address sure makes up for it and it’s not to be sniffed at. Plus, Bath is a little over an hour from London by train, so the commute isn’t too taxing.
The first-floor flat boasts high ceilings with opulent decorations including chandeliers and ornate fireplaces, as well as huge sash windows of which you can gaze out at the green space of Victoria Park from a chaise longue. The flat consists of one mezzanine bedroom, a generously-sized drawing room, a round dressing room, a grand reception hall, as well as one bathroom and a kitchen with modern fittings.
However, the price of this property may mean you’ll have to sell some of your precious jewellery or sacrifice that dowry to foot the mortgage. Up for sale at a whopping £1 million ($1.3 million), it’s rather a lot of cash – albeit probably a bargain going by London property prices.
