No time to lose for those wanting penthouse perfection

News that it is now the last chance to buy a brand new waterside penthouse in Bath will increase the sense of urgency amongst those wanting to live the high life in the centre of the world heritage city.

The shortening supply of brand new top floor pads follows news that the Royal View building at Bath Riverside has now sold out and means the focus of attention has moved onto its sister building, Sovereign Point.

Comprising 52 apartments in total, of these, only three are penthouses.

Located on the banks of the River Avon they afford spectacular views out across the rooftops of Bath and are not available anywhere else in the city. Anyone who is biding their time thinking more penthouses will come onto the market will soon find themselves bitterly disappointed!

It’s a fact Anna Fairman, director at Savills, is keen to stress on those thinking about a move into this property type, and that they can’t afford to wait.

Anna said: “For the foreseeable future there aren’t any new penthouse apartments being built in Bath and we don’t know of any other development that has any planned either, especially on the banks of the river.

“The three that are currently available in Sovereign Point really are the last in line and our advice for anyone looking for this style of property is they can’t hang about.

“With spectacular views out across the rooftops of the city, the specification is of the highest quality. That’s what makes them exclusive.”

A superb demonstration of modern architecture at its best, the use of space shows what can be achieved through imagination and creativity. 

Access to these three penthouses is through the beautifully appointed central atrium which stretches from the ground floor all the way up to the top of the building. Entering the penthouses, house hunters will be hit with a massive wow factor.

The first floor comprises very spacious open plan, living, dining and kitchen areas which are flooded with natural light through the generous floor to ceiling windows. Designed for modern living, these stunning homes enjoys a sleek kitchen and integrated Siemens appliances which include a stylish wine cooler and coffee machine.

Offering luxury at every turn, the double bedrooms include fitted wardrobes and a contemporary en suite bathroom.

The living areas provide access to the balconies which stretch the full width of each property as well as direct access to the secluded roof terraces which comes via a glass-encased spiral staircase. This leads owners up and outside where they will be able to enjoy far reaching views across the rooftops of Bath and the surrounding countryside.

The roof terraces have plenty of space for outside furniture, sun loungers and potted plants, making them a calm, private oasis in the heart of the city. There is also spacious storage so that outdoor furniture can be put away during the winter months.

Each property also comes with two allocated parking spaces which are in the residents’ underground car park.

Anna added: “This is the perfect haven for those who enjoy a living space that comes with plenty of room, light and stunning views. Those lucky enough to secure these last exclusive properties will be able to enjoy the trappings penthouse living brings from al fresco dining, soaking up the sun on the roof terrace to the peace and security of a top floor retreat.

“There really isn’t anything quite like this anywhere else in the region and with the number of penthouse apartments limited, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
