One budget, two postcodes; Bath or Barnes?

One budget, two postcodes; we look at the buying options in the capital and the west country with our area price comparison of Barnes and Bath.

One budget, two postcodes; we look at buying options in the capital and the west country with our area price comparison of the affluent and leafy London suburb Barnes and the historic city of Bath. We’ll focus on what £1,200,000 can get you in these areas, including a Grade II listed three bedroom apartment in London and a 6 bedroom maisonette in an archetypal Bath townhouse.



The World-Heritage site of Bath is a city steeped in history and culture. Renowned for its stunning Georgian architecture, Roman-style baths, and strong connections to Jane Austen, Bath attracts tourists from around the globe. Bath is by no means just for tourists however, with plenty of parks and gardens offering green space, as well as festivals held throughout the year, from literature and comedy to classical concerts. There is also a plethora of great schools including Kingswood School, King Edward’s School and Royal High School, as well as the esteemed Bath University, making it a highly desirable location for students and families. Most of the sales in Bath over the past year were terraced properties which on average sold for £471,869, while the overall average price of  £483,293 was more expensive than nearby Bath Spa (£424,307) and Combe Down (£437,010).

Offering the best of both worlds, Barnes provides residents with an idyllic village setting, but is less than a 20 minute journey by train to London Waterloo. Barnes has attracted myriad well-known celebrities, with current residents including Stanley Tucci, Zac Goldsmith and Gary Lineker, to name a few. Schools in the area are excellent, and include St Paul’s School, The Harrodian, and Chiswick School. There is plenty of greenery to be found in the area with Barnes Common providing 120 acres of land, as well as the London Wetland Centre. On top of the swath of independent shops and a weekly farmers’ market, locals can enjoy Rick Stein’s only London-based restaurant. Barnes is serviced by two national rail train stations, with the nearest underground service in neighbouring Hammersmith. The majority of sales in Barnes over the last year were of terraced properties, which sold for £1,181,294. The overall average property price was  £1,224,146, more expensive than the neighbouring area of Mortlake (£972,681) and East Sheen (£966,903).
