A History of Evelyn House
Designed by John Wood the Elder, Pierrepont Place was named after Evelyn Pierrepont, 2nd Duke of Kingston upon Hull, an English nobleman and a member of the House of Lords, who sold the Bath Abbey Orchards to Wood and his business partner and thus it was named in homage to the Pierrepont family. Wood proceeded to design housing in this area alongside his work designing The Circus, Prior Park and Queen's square among many others.
This relationship is what inspired the renovation of Evelyn House: a desire to combine the classic historical beauty of Georgian architecture with a forward thinking contemporary art aesthetic. Originally a commercial office building, each floor has been painstakingly restored. With features like the dark wood flooring in each room, the geometric stone tiles in the bathroom and the hand mixed pink tone paint colours, each detail has been carefully curated to pay homage to the design greats while injecting some playfulness and intrigue in order to modernise it.
Evelyn House is ideally located in the centre of Bath, a three minute walk from Bath Spa train station and local bus station and just moments away from the iconic tourist spots The Bath Abbey, The Pump Rooms and The Roman Baths. Within walking distance you will find Southgate shopping district where off street car parking is available. Please note street car parking is limited in Bath City Centre.
We look forward to welcoming you
