Buying new avoids hassle of DIY

Sovereign Point Bath Riverside West Country home owners wondering how they can avoid the hassle of doing any DIY over the next few weeks are being advised to move rather than try and improve!

With many well intentioned DIY projects often lurching from one mishap to another - particularly on older properties - the best way to steer clear of spilling paint on the carpet or drilling through an electrical wire is to pay a visit to Bath Riverside, the multi award-winning new property development located on the banks of the River Avon.

Leigh Pitts, marketing manager at Crest Nicholson said: “Many people start off with the best of intentions. They might have all the gear but far too many don’t really have any idea what they’re letting themselves in for. It’s all very well watching someone online make light work on tiling the bathroom or putting in a new radiator but the truth is most of us find it all a bit too much of a bother.

“A classic DIY tale is what starts off as a simple task soon opens up a real Pandora’s Box of other jobs, which turns out to be much more time consuming for the well-intentioned DIYer.

“If you want a DIY free life and to enjoy your free time, our advice is to come and take a look around the properties here at Bath Riverside. Being completely brand new all properties are built to modern standards so there’s no need to do anything apart from a bit of decorating.”

Located within walking distance of Bath city-centre and on the banks of the River Avon, Bath Riverside is regarded as being the most important development the world heritage city has seen for a generation. Regenerating land that had stood derelict for nearly half a century, the space has been transformed to provide a stunning range of new homes.

Current availability includes a selection of two-bedroom apartments in the Royal View and Sovereign Point buildings. 

This includes a superbly appointed fourth-floor, two-bedroom apartment in Royal View that is perfect for those wanting a hassle free lifestyle close to Bath city centre.

Offering a specification and layout that better suits the needs of today’s home owner, flexibility is key to the use of the space alongside the high-quality fixtures and fittings.

Both bedrooms are en suite and have their own dressing area and fitted wardrobes while the open plan living/dining room opens out onto the balcony which overlooks the river.

Leigh added: “Both Royal View and Sovereign Point have really captured the imagination of house hunters looking for somewhere to live in Bath and who wants to spend their bank holidays doing DIY? Buying new all you have to do is move in your furniture and personal belongings.

“Our sales team will be available over the whole Easter weekend, so instead of embarking on never ending DIY in your old home, why not come along to Bath Riverside, enjoy a glass of champagne and view our stunning show apartments.”

The Bath Riverside sales and marketing suite, which is located on Victoria Bridge Road will be open over the Easter holidays from 10am to 5pm.
