On the level
Renowned for its hills, house hunters in Bath wanting a new home that provides an easy, flat walk into the centre of the city are being advised to visit Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside.
Located on the south banks of the River Avon and in close proximity to the centre of Bath, an increasing number of buyers at the multi award-winning development have said one of the main reasons for moving was because it provides an easy, level walk into the heart of the world heritage city.
Choosing between the pedestrian towpath or along Upper Bristol Road via the newly refurbished Victoria Bridge, residents can walk to the centre in about 15 minutes including Bath Spa train station.
Whether it’s for business or leisure, the appeal of being able to walk on the level is clearly attracting a growing number of house hunters to the development.
Taking the city’s Regency past as a template for the selection of apartments, penthouses, townhouses and villas, the specification in all properties is of the highest order.
And because house hunters can also see first-hand the range of properties on offer, as opposed to off plan, is another reason it has become the development of choice for those looking to move.
Christine Hamilton, sales advisor said: “Bath Riverside ticks a lot of boxes for today’s discerning house hunter. It’s got the location, it’s got a wide variety of property types, the specification is superb and many are ready to move into.
“What it hasn’t got is hills!
“More of our buyers have commented that this is a major factor for choosing to buy here with some also now ditching the car in favour of walking. Being so close to the centre of Bath and all its amenities means you’ve got all you need close to your doorstep.
“There’s no need to hop in the car to go to the shops or get to the cinema or restaurant, and with Bath’s current road works what should be a 10 minute errand could take anything up to an hour!
“Recent buyers have come from all parts of Bath citing they were fed up with having to contend with the hills.
“That’s also become an increasing consideration for older house hunters looking to sell the family home and potentially downsize or change to something new.”
Current availability includes a number of high-end penthouse apartments which not only provide a lifestyle like no other, but have stunning views of the hills, rooftops, parks and distinctive Georgian architecture that have made the city famous across the world.
There are also a number of stylish four-storey, four-bedroom townhouses which, while styled on the historic design made famous from Georgian times, benefit from more modern build techniques.
