Marshal Wade's House at 14 Abbey Church Yard, Bath, Somerset, England was built around 1700 and has been designated as a Grade I listed building.[1]

The building was originally attributed to Lord Burlington and thought to have been built in 1730, however it is now thought to have been an earlier construction,[1] for George Wade who was a Field Marshal and served as a British military commander and Commander-in-Chief of the Forces, as well as Member of Parliament for Bath from 1722 to 1747.

The Palladian nature of the architecture is emphasised by the 5 fluted Ionic pilasters on the 1st and 2nd floors.[1]

The shop on the ground floor was an early 19th-century development which is now occupied by the National Trust.[2]

The house was acquired by the Landmark Trust in 1975 who have carried out various renovation work and now let out the property.[3]
