Albert Terrace – city cottage living

through receptions

A gorgeous Victorian two bedroom hidden gem of a cottage, tucked away south of the Lower Bristol Rd off Burnham Rd and perfectly presented throughout.

Two bedrooms upstairs, two open plan reception spaces, a sparkling white fitted kitchen, a white three piece bathroom and an enclosed rear garden. Double glazing, gas CH, a fireplace begging for a woodburner and the owners rent a parking space & garage opposite. Sole Agents.

Historical Notes – First listed in 1891 in the district of West Twerton, this was not the only terrace in Bath to be named after Queen Victoria’s Prince Consort (the other being Albert Bldgs – now long gone but once stood behind Victoria Buildings next to the old Stothert & Pitt works). The first owner of this property was Samuel Smith (labourer), with neighbours Jacob Newman (machinist) & William Coles (painter). Mr Smith remained in listings of 1894 but his neighbours had changed to John Hanks (mason) and Frederick Smith. At that time, the occupations in the terrace were; wool drier, poulterer, drayman, dressmaker, two painters, sawyer & gardener.
By the turn of the century, this property was now owned by William Price (labourer) and the terrace now housed, amongst other occupations, two weavers, a fireman, two railway labourers, a staymaker, a tailors cutter, a coachman, a butcher and a mason.
