Colworth is an Edwardian Arts & Crafts inspired home built in 1908 and having never come to the market in its history. A five bedroom detached double fronted property standing on a large plot it has been a much loved family home. It is somewhat of a rarity having been partly constructed of red brick which is an oddity to find in Bath. Its Arts & Crafts inspiration can be seen in the façade with stained glass windows, tall pitched roof, stone mullion windows, gable end timber framing and decorative brick bonding.
