From Town & Country

THE PROPERTY: This magnificent Grade I-listed double-fronted townhouse is situated in the centre of the thriving city of Bath. Pitt House is rich with historical intrigue, having once been the home of the British Prime Minister William Pitt the younger, and also for many years, the offices of the Bath Conservative Association. William Pitt was said to have lived in the resplendent house in the early 1800s, between his two terms as Prime Minister.

Being within a short walk from the splendid shops, museums and galleries of the city, it is the ideal location for those who enjoy exploring on foot.
