A former Victorian bath house has been converted into a stunning family home, complete with bowling alley and home cinema.

The Grade II Listed property, in Burton St Leonards, dates back to 1868 when families often did not have access to  their own wash facilities at home. Not only did these bathhouse serve as important hygiene facilities, they also became social hubs with saunas and massages offered — later becoming the spas we now use today.
