Bates Home

Mrs and Miss Bates were once wealthy women - but some twist of fate has brought them low and will make them even lower in the years to come as their income depletes. They now live in a small apartment in the center of town. It is not a "hovel" by any means - but it is not nearly as elegant as the Woodhouse home.

1996 Emma
They show Emma knocking on a multi-family home door in the center of town and going up to the upper floor where the Bates family apparently has a main sitting room plus two bedrooms. The room is nicely kept, but with only simple furnishings.
