MOD site in Bath to be transformed

The Negotiator

MOD site Bath imageSavills is the selling agency for a former Ministry of Defence site in Bath, which is being transformed into a new neighbourhood of 200 classically-styled homes, named Holburne Park, with expansive views of the city’s historic skyline and open countryside beyond.

Set in a secluded location bordering the picturesque Kennet and Avon Canal, Holburne Park offers contemporary homes close to central Bath – the only World Heritage city in the UK.

Surrounded by greenery and big open skies, Holburne Park will offer a mixture of two to six-bedroom homes including terraced houses, villas and apartments, designed to cater for a wide range of needs and set among landscaped, tree lined grounds.

Francis Firmstone, director of Hardrock Developments, said, “There are many people who like the idea of living in a classical period property but don’t want the burden of the associated upkeep of a listed or heritage building. Holburne Park will offer the character of classical architecture but with all the advantages of modern fittings and contemporary design.”

Designed by the leading classical architect Robert Adam, who designed the Duchy of Cornwall’s acclaimed Poundbury in Dorset, the homes are arranged to create an intimate village feel.

Vicky Dudbridge, Associate Director at Savills, said, “It is rare in Bath to find a location like Holburne Park which offers all the benefits of being close to the city while offering residents a strong community feel and village-like experience. As a result, we expect to see strong demand for these stylish homes which will appeal to a whole range of people including those moving from London or outlying villages, downsizers and families who want to be close to good schools.”
