WhatHouse? takes a look at this impressive show home in Bath and finds out some of the style details room by room...

Offering spectacular views out across the roof tops of Bath, those who make an appointment to have a look around this stunning addition to the Bath property scene will instantly realise how unique these properties really are.

Christine Hamilton, Crest Nicholson Regeneration sales advisor of the year is now looking forward to showing potential buyers around the breath-taking property.

Christine says: “Living in a penthouse apartment is all about the lifestyle and anyone wanting to make the most of what Bath has to offer while enjoying all the trappings a penthouse apartment can bring should get in touch.

“These penthouse apartments are ideal for a range of buyers such as those looking to downsize or who are in a position to purchase a second home. Whatever the reason, the penthouse apartments offer the perfect gateway to a new way of living.”

WhatHouse? spoke to Rebecca Tucker, co-director and interior designer at Suna Interior Design, the team behind the beautiful interiors at Bath Riverside penthouse to find out more about the inspiration behind the design.

Rebecca says: "I was inspired by the impressive architecture of the building, the high feature ceilings, walls of glazing, the quality of the light and of course the amazing views over Bath.”


“The living room is a spacious, airy, light and bright room. We wanted to create a space that felt luxurious and contemporary but had touches of classic detailing on the furniture and in the accessories. The impressive floor space leant itself to a generous seating and dining area with fantastic views over Bath. We used mirrored and chrome furniture in combination with luxurious upholstery and added classic touches, like the chandeliers to bring an element of sophistication and elegance to the contemporary architecture.”   Bath Riverside living room
"Continuing the theme of accentuating the stunning quality of light in this penthouse, we opted for a neutral palette of greys and taupe’s in the master bedroom. Feature items of furniture such as the marquetry bedside chests and the striking bedroom chair are further accented by the beautiful crystal pendant lights and a brass sunburst mirror adding opulence. A separate generous dressing room allowed us to showcase the lifestyle of the purchasers with a beautiful clear acrylic dressing table and seat placed against the full height window with more picturesque views."

"In this room we wanted to recreate a boutique hotel feel that any purchaser would be proud to use as a guest room. Continuing with the neutral palette but warming it with luxurious fur throws, touches of brushed brass on the accessories and the trunk style furniture. This is another room with fantastic high ceilings and we used a feature cluster light that added a touch of quirkiness that sits well in this room with its boutique uniqueness."

With a south facing aspect, the spacious and airy lounge / dining area symbolises what penthouse living is all about. The space is flooded with natural light helped by the floor to ceiling windows that also provide one of the best panoramic views anywhere in Bath. Bath Riverside living / dining area
