Raby Place is the first terrace of Georgian houses at the start of Bathwick Hill. This sought after residential location is within easy walking distance of the City Centre via Great Pulteney Street. Bath Spa Station and the bus station can be reached

via Pulteney Road. Bathwick Hill is a magnificent wide road flanked on both sides with some of Bath’s finest examples of Georgian townhouses and villas. There are local shops and amenities available with a useful general store, off licence and florists. The Kennet & Avon Canal runs close by and its tow path is accessible from Bathwick Hill. There is a good bus service linking properties on Bathwick Hill to the University and City Centre. The private gardens of Raby Lawn are open to residents of Raby Villas exclusively. These park grounds are situated opposite Raby Place and No. 4 has a fine view of these gardens as well as Bath Abbey and the surrounding City of Bath.


This is a superb Georgian townhouse enjoying a prestigious address close to the centre of Bath. The property benefits from grand proportions across five floors and has an excellent outlook with pleasing views across Raby Lawn towards Bath

Abbey. Raby Place was designed by the acclaimed architect John Pinch circa 1823 and is Grade II listed. Constructed of Bath stone elevations under a slate tiled roof the property is full of charm and character and has many architectural details

typical of the period. These include decorative plasterwork to cornicing and ceilings, deep skirting, carved door surrounds, sash windows with working shutters, a cantilevered stone staircase and double wedding doors between the drawing room and withdrawing room. Of particular note are the principal reception rooms with the impressive drawing room looking out over the city towards Bath Abbey. There is a

comprehensively fitted handcrafted kitchen on the ground floor which opens into a dining room, creating an excellent living and entertaining space. At lower ground floor level the accommodation is arranged as a self-contained one bedroom

apartment with its own private entrance. There is an internal staircase (currently sealed) linking the apartment with the main integral part of the house which could be re-opened if required (subject to the usual consents). As well as the main house at the end of the garden is a separate mews house and an annexe with a double garage. The annexe provides additional accommodation in the form of

a two bedroom maisonette above the garage and studio/en suite bedroom. There is a delightful landscaped and enclosed garden which links the main house to the coach house and provides an excellent outdoor space. No. 4 Raby Place

includes the part ownership of Raby Lawn, a private garden situated opposite the terrace of houses, the residents of which are joint key holders. The gardens are fairly secluded and

comprise various areas of lawn and a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs.
