City centre offices to become apartments in developer Kersfield’s latest Bath venture

February 15, 2017

Bath-based upmarket property developer Kersfield is to begin work on its fourth project in the city – the conversion of an office block into 17 apartments.

The scheme will completely transform 4-5 Westgate Buildings with a combination of studio and one-bedroom apartments.

Designed by Bristol-based Angus Meek architects, the development will be arranged over three floors above a Tesco supermarket.

Kersfield said each apartment would benefit from its high standards of quality and attention to detail, including bespoke kitchens and bathrooms, with communal areas that reflect the attractive, contemporary style of the project. Prices will start at £165,000.

Kersfield chief executive David Newton said: “Ideal for young professionals, or anyone looking for a base in the city centre, these apartments have been designed with modern luxury – and convenience – in mind.

“Every apartment has an open plan, spacious feel, with high-quality finishes throughout. Overlooking Kingsmead Square and within such easy reach of Bath’s restaurants, bars, shopping, theatres and cinemas, we expect demand to be high.”

Savills and Knight Frank have been appointed joint agents for the development, which is due for completion this July.

Kersfield is currently working on three other schemes in Bath – the first phase of development of a prime four-acre former MoD site in Lansdown with 26 four and five-bedroom houses and nine large apartments, the former Hope Chapel, which is being converted into eight apartments, a house and a ground floor retail/restaurant space, and four large apartments at Beckford Gate, also in Lansdown.
