Not the kind of property you would expect to find in bath, but this 1960s Peter Womersley-designed modernist house in Bath is one you'll not forget in a hurry.

This is apparently the only post war modernist house built within the city,  built between 1966 and 1968 to a bold brick and frameless glass design by Womersley – designed to offer unobstructed views of the surrounding countryside.


Arranged over a series of interlinking half levels, the western pavilion is a self-contained annexe, the central pavilion contains the kitchen, dining room, bathroom and two bedrooms. The eastern pavilion is occupied by the main living room, a further sitting room, bedroom, study/fifth bedroom and a shower room. But that's not all the property offers.


Also included are equestrian facilities which include eight stables, two paddocks and a further area which was once used as a manege and could be restored. There is also a stone outbuilding which provides a workshop and garaging, the whole area covering 12.7 acres. So a house and a business, providing you are into horses.

That does account for the high price, with offers of around £2 million invited. Check out the agent's brochure on the site for more images of the property.

  1. Cracking find and what an awesome place! Unsurprisingly now under offer and that’s a lot of house and land for a reasonable price.
    Shame they weren’t my numbers from last weeks EuroMillions. 🙁
