A Freehold parcel of land with a derelict coach house occupying an elevated position overlooking the City.
Sold with vacant possession.
Margaret's Hill is located close to Walcott Street, well-renowned for independent boutiques, vintage clothes shops, cafes and coffee shops, a health food store and a weekly antiques market. The city centre, its daily amenities and landmark attractions, are just a few minutes’ walk away.
Bath is the only city in Britain to achieve Unesco World Heritage status which continues to be vehemently protected. Founded in the 1st century AD by the Romans, who famously used the natural hot springs as a thermal spa, it became an important centre for the wool industry in the Middle Ages. In the 18th century, under George III, it developed into an elegant city with neoclassical Palladian buildings.
The city harbours a strong community of independent retailers, coffee shops and eateries with Colonna and Smalls, Corkage, LandRace and the weekly Farmer’s Market ranking favourably with local residents. Royal Victoria Park provides a wonderful green expanse in the city centre and is also home to the revered Botanical Gardens. Uniquely situated in a hollow in the hills, the surrounding Somerset countryside provides an incredible backdrop to the city. The National Trust Skyline Walk offers up exceptional views through six miles of meadows and ancient woodlands.
Transport links are excellent, with Bath Spa train station located in the heart of the city centre, providing a direct line to London Paddington in under one and a half hours. The M4 motorway sits just on the edge of the city centre and is reachable by car in 15 minutes.

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
