Doric House is a unique property of significant importance, both in itself and to the city’s cultural heritage. John Britton described it as a ”notable landmark in the architectural history of Bath.” The name ”Doric House” comes from the Greek classical Doric columns on its front façade. The house was constructed during the late Georgian era, embodying the principles of Neo-Classicism and the Greek Revival.

Extensively renovated in the past few years, Doric House is now presented in excellent condition. It beautifully combines abundant period features with contemporary modern living.

The main gallery/drawing room of this house retains its original fireplace, cornicing, and ceiling rose, complemented by a fresco by Thomas Barker.

This distinctive house spans four floors. Visitors are greeted by a magnificent reception hall featuring an imposing cantilevered helical stone staircase and a stunning domed skylight overhead.

The drawing/gallery room, which houses the expansive fresco, offers nearly 600 square feet of entertaining space. The gallery opens onto a balustraded terrace that overlooks the garden and offers views over Victoria Park, perfect for summer dining. The ground floor also includes a unique oval-shaped dining room that mirrors the entrance hall, as well as a study.

The lower ground floor, which is at garden level, includes a stylish modern shaker-style kitchen with bespoke joinery, which leads out to the garden and adjoining pantry. Adjacent is an additional reception room, ideal as a media room or living room. This floor also features a delightful guest bedroom suite overlooking the garden with a large en suite bathroom. There is also a utility room, separate WC and the original wine cellar which has been restored beautifully.

The principal bedroom suite on the first floor is dual-aspect with views to the east over Cavendish Crescent and to the south across Victoria Park and the city beyond. The suite includes an en suite bathroom and dressing room. Two further bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) are arranged on this level and the floor above, both with delightful far reaching views.

Outside, there is a south-facing landscaped garden with far reaching southerly views over Bath and steps down to a garage.
