The result, and good news for house hunters, is that a number of select properties, including some stunning three and four-bedroom townhouses are now ready to move into this autumn.
Those who want the convenience of living in a brand new city-centre property that is also within easy walking distance of the train station, are now being drawn to Bath Riverside, Crest Nicholson’s waterside development in the heart of the world heritage city.
Having established itself as the South West’s most sought after place to live, anyone looking for a new build home that provides a true taste of the Regency, are being encouraged to visit the development and see for themselves why it is causing such a stir across the region’s property scene.
The benefits of the properties currently available, coupled with the location of the development has made this limited availability an exceptional opportunity for those looking for a new build property in Bath’s city centre.
With some property experts also predicting a rise in both demand and prices of property once the electrification of the main line railway is complete, buying now before any increase therefore makes sense.
Susan Young, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson said: “Bath Riverside is completely unique. There is presently no other development like it anywhere across the whole South West and to have the chance to move in by the Autumn is an opportunity like no other.
“The benefits of moving here are numerous. Notably the location of the development is one of the main attractions being within a 10 minute walk to the centre of the city and Bath Spa train station.
“Residents are much less reliant on using private transport and a lot of those who have already moved here have said they are using their cars a lot less.”
With a selection of local schools nearby and direct bus routes to the university, those with school-aged children or who are studying for their degrees have also been attracted to the area.
Current availability includes a selection of three and four-bedroom townhouses on the Longmead Terrace phase. Built from the light-coloured Bath stone, so typical of the city, these brand new properties benefit from modern features tailored with the lifestyle of today’s busy home owner.
Whilst maintaining a traditional Georgian-style, these homes are brand new meaning they need little or no maintenance unlike many older properties in the city. This allows for much lower heating and running costs.
Susan added: “Many people haven’t visited Bath Riverside and will be surprised by what has been achieved. As well as the stunning range of new properties, there is also a lot of new public space and art.
“The reopening of Victoria Bridge has made for a striking entrance to the development for those walking from Upper Bristol Road or along the pedestrian tow path, and I would recommend a stroll down to see how the area has grown.
“People’s reactions have been one of surprise as they just didn’t realise what Bath Riverside has to offer. We now hope to attract more people here and I can guarantee they won’t be disappointed.”
