Apsley House, No 2 Spa Rd, Glos.
Apsley House at No 2 Spa Road is a prime example of a regency style house, set on a prominent corner plot on Southgate Street. The Spa Road area of Gloucester City was a very fashionable area to live in the C18 due to the nearby location of the Spa Pump Rooms. The project consisted of a light touch design to convert the existing Grade 2 listed townhouse into a 10 bedroom HMO. Most of the original large rooms are kept or reinstated where possible in the design, enjoying high ceilings, prominent feature fireplaces, and tall sash windows. The room proportions lend themselves well to HMO accommodation. The elegant existing staircase endures allowing ease of access to each room. The major challenge was to accommodate modern vehicle & disabled access from the rear of the property, new disabled sanitary provision and a large well equipped communal kitchen to ensure the building remains occupied and in use for many years to come.
