Tenth housing scheme for Bath developer as it builds on its reputation for quality

May 30, 2022

Bath property developer Longacre has completed its 10th project in the city, a terrace of four houses at Henrietta Gardens.

The firm, known for its high-quality sympathetic contemporary schemes, has built the houses with the latest energy-saving technology, including air source heat pumps – which means they do not need gas – as well as underfloor heating, ashlar stone and slate roofs and high levels of insulation which give them a high efficiency rating. 

One of the homes is fully DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) compliant with the ground floors of all properties complying to disabled access regulations and all homes have FTTP (fibre to the premises).

The homes have private gardens and private parking spaces with electric vehicle chargers.

They are opposite Henrietta Park and a level walk from the city centre as well as being close Bathwick St Mary Primary and King Edwards schools. 

Longacre was set up by Mark Tyrrell, pictured, left, a former director of student accommodation group Unite and property developer Deeley Freed Estates – both based in Bristol – and Julian Emery, pictured, right, who runs Bath-based family construction firm Emerys, who between them have more than 50 years’ experience in the sector.

Its previous schemes include One Bilbury Lane, Great Pulteney Street’s Fitzroy House and Milsom Apartments on Milsom Street.

Mark Tyrrell said: “This has been another successful residential development in the heart of Bath.

“We take pride in our work, which ranges from heritage restoration through to new design and build.

Julian Emery added: “This scheme combines contemporary architecture with modern interior designs in one of Bath’s unique locations.”

The homes are being marketed by Savills.
