HOUSING

Housing options in Bath range from iconic terraced Georgian town houses, to smart new riverside apartments, to family homes in surrounding towns and villages. Vibrant market towns such as Frome in Somerset, Midsomer Norton in B&NES  and Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire are all accessible in around 30 minutes.

New homes in the city centre are being built on the award winning Bath Western Riverside development which will provide 2,200 new homes when complete.

The historic Roman town of Keynsham is ideally located half way between Bristol and Bath, where a brand new family home on the Somerdale estate costs £345,000-£403,000 (March 2017). Keynsham is on the Bath to Bristol train route with regular trains taking only 10 minutes.  This route is part of the 2015 electrification programme which will lead to a more regular and reliable service.

Public transport in Bath connects the city to the rest of the district and beyond, with electrification of the railway underway and constantly improving bus services which makes a home outside the city a viable option.

  • According to the UK House Price Index (Dec 2016 data), the average cost of a semi-detached home in the Bath and North East Somerset district was just over £337,000.
