Bath couple's smooth move to new lifestyle down by the river

With their children grown up and moved out of the family home provided the catalyst for one Bath couple to consider a fresh start and move somewhere that better suited their lifestyle.

Having lived in their Widcombe home for 23 years, although the decision to move was a difficult one for Paddy and Elizabeth Doyle, ongoing maintenance of the property and a garden that needed constant attention were factors that made them look at more modern properties.

The fact that the couple lived on top of the hill in the popular part of Bath was an additional factor to move as they wanted a slightly easier walk to enjoy all the attractions that the world heritage city has to offer.

It’s resulted in the Doyles buying a brand new, four-bedroom, four-storey townhouse at Bath Riverside, Crest Nicholson’s flagship development on the banks of the River Avon.

Their new home forms part of the Elizabeth Parade phase, where the couple are now making the most of the ease at which they can walk into Bath and fact that they’re not having to spend an inordinate amount of time tending a garden!

Paddy Doyle said: “We’ve been well aware of Bath Riverside ever since work started. We also know some friends who have also moved here so were naturally interested to take a look once we decided that it was time for a move.

“The fact that the development provides a level walk into the city was an important factor in our decision to buy here as we enjoy making the most of Bath’s many attractions.

“Plus, for once, the chance to move into something new was an exciting prospect.”

Having looked at the plans the couple set their sights on Elizabeth Terrace, a phase which directly overlooks the river. They also took advantage of using Crest Nicholson’s Smooth Move package.

Perfect for those who want to take out the stresses and strains normally associated with selling property, using Smooth Move helped secure their property of choice.

Paddy added: “We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the property and had no problems getting all our belongings in. We’d recommend others who are considering moving to look at Bath Riverside.”

Mary Timlin, sales and marketing director said: “Using Smooth Move not only helps secure a brand new property but gets people into their new home with the minimum of fuss while removing the stress of moving house.

“It’s a great way to secure the home of your dreams and makes the whole process of selling and buying so much easier.”
