Listing Text


A coach house, now a house built in c1825.

Reason for Listing

* Architectural interest: as a good example of a mid-C19 former coach house in a Greek-Revival style;
* Group value: with the Grade II listed No. 23 Bathwick Hill which it served.


Up to the early 1970s the former coach house served as a garage to No. 23. It compliments the latter house and is designed in a similar Greek Revival-influenced style, and is an unusually architecturally treated (if altered) coach house. The architect Henry Goodridge may have been involved in its design.


MATERIALS: Bath stone walls, slate roof.

PLAN: It has a rectangular plan, and stands parallel to No. 23 Bathwick Hill, at an angle to the road.

EXTERIOR: It has tripartite elevations to the east and west, the latter (facing the house) formerly blind, but now with a door inserted in the left-hand bay and with windows at upper level. The east elevation has a modern door in the right-hand bay, six by six pane sashes in the other bays, and narrow windows to the upper floor. It has slightly projecting end pilasters and a central bay which has a string course at first-floor level, and a frieze and raised parapet above. The ends are pedimented with an incised panel to the upper level of the north (street) elevation above the blind wall. The south elevation has three windows inserted at first floor level, above a projecting late-C20 extension.

INTERIOR: Not inspected.
