A substantial detached Grade II* listed Georgian Villa with a two bedroom lodge house, a pool house and all set in approximately 1.7 acres with panoramic views over Bath. (Main house approx. 7,937 sq ft / 737.3 sq m. Lodge and outbuildings approx. 3,591 sq ft / 333.6 sq m).

Bathwick Hill House is an important Grade II* listed city residence designed by Edmund Henry Goodridge circa 1825 occupying an elevated, stately position overlooking Bath.
An excellent family oriented property that retains well-proportioned reception rooms and provides ample family and guest accommodation as well as a vast entertainment space.
The property is built to a square plan with a symmetrical layout and a grand, central transverse staircase adorned with lantern lights.
The principal reception rooms to three sides of the building spill onto a paved balustrade sun terrace which leads down to the gardens. A rose lined avenue leads to the pool house.
The original Italianate garden building set 30 metres East of Bathwick Hill House has subsequently been redesigned by Watson Bertram & Fell to form a luxurious swimming pool and leisure complex encased in sliding glass doors and Doric columns. To the outside of the pool house is a built in BBQ for summer entertaining.
A sweeping gated driveway winds up past a modern studio and double garage and terminates by the main entrance and further garaging.

NEWLY REFURBISHED LODGE HOUSE: The Lodge House sits at the entrance to the driveway and is a two bedroom property with a single garage. Previously rented to staff or used as guest accommodation, this cosy house could also provide a regular rental income should one wish.

SITUATION
Bathwick Hill is one of the most prominent residential areas within the City of Bath. Little Claverton is located on the western side of the hill, benefiting from a fine aspect to the rear over open National Trust farmland. The outlook being towards Prior Park, Widcombe, with the City beyond.
The property is very conveniently placed for easy access to various nearby schools which include King Edwards, Prior Park and Monkton Combe. Also nearby is Bath University with its world class sports village.
The city centre of Bath, within easy walking distance, provides a full range of retail outlets together with many amenities including an excellent selection of restaurants, Bath Sports Centre, the Theatre Royal and the Thermae Spa. Complementing this is the open countryside to the rear with many beautiful walks. This, contrasting with the closeness of the city centre is, in our opinion, one of the major attractions to this property.
Communication links are excellent with a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approximately 85 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approximately 15 minutes). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 10 miles north.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
 
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
 
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
