Hope House: An oasis of green in the beautiful city of Bath

September 22, 2020

Former home of garden enthusiast Charles Hamilton in the late 18th century, it’s no wonder that our Hope House development in Bath enjoys such impressive grounds. In our latest blog, we take a closer look at the rich woodland surrounding Hope House and the fantastic green space available to residents to enjoy throughout the year.

Finely crafted to showcase Bath in its most stunning light, Charles Hamilton used the elevation of Lansdown, Bath to create generous terraces and parkland that gave incredible views over the city. Today, Hope House continues to enjoy this prime position with many of the homes offering panoramic views across the city and the Avon Valley. Set within six acres of parkland, residents can enjoy an abundance of green space at their fingertips. Ideal for taking a stroll, the mature woodland is teeming with wildlife.

With the majestic Grade II listed manor house as the backdrop, residents can enjoy access to the grand formal lawn. Enveloped by the parkland, this is the perfect spot to catch some sun, read a book or take in the impeccable surroundings.

Outside of the development, there is no shortage of glorious countryside to explore. Just a 20-minute drive from Hope House you will find The National Trust’s Dyrham Park, a spectacular late 17th-century mansion, garden and deer park. If fantastic views are what you are seeking, head to the rural village of Kelston, just between Bath and Bristol to complete the Kelston Roundhill Walk. Drink in spectacular views countryside views from the hillside, and on a on a clear day, you might be able to see the Severn bridges, across to Wales, the Wiltshire Downs and the Mendip Hills.

Featuring the conversion of a magnificent Grade II listed building, Hope House is a collection of fifty-eight 1 to 4 bedroom homes located within walking distance of the centre of Bath. For more information on the homes available at Hope House, please call the team on 01225 614 307 or visit our Show Homes open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am – 5pm.
