Summer in the city

Being able to move into a new home with immediate effect is always a big attraction for eager house hunters wanting a speedy deal.

For those looking in Bath, news on the availability of a number of stunning one and two-bedroom apartments at what has become the city’s most established scheme will fuel further interest for those wanting a swift move.

Built by one of the country’s most reputable developers, Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside has become by far the location of choice for discerning house hunters wanting to live within walking distance of the historic city centre.

And as the build programme nears completion on Sovereign Point - the latest addition to the development and sister building to Royal View - those who want to enjoy the summer in Bath will be able to get hold of the keys and start enjoying all the trappings of the city’s cosmopolitan lifestyle much sooner than they think.

Leigh Pitts, marketing manager at Crest Nicholson said: “The arrival of spring always kick starts people into action and the immediate availability of properties in Royal View is great news for anyone wanting a quick move and the convenience of city centre living.

“As the area has been transformed, interest has accelerated as people can see the layout, style and design of the properties on offer and anyone who hasn’t been to this area of Bath for a while will be amazed to see how it has changed.

“Whether it’s to move into something a little more manageable, to be near work or to just have a change Bath Riverside ticks a lot of boxes.

“Bath Riverside is already an established scheme that is being developed by a highly reputable builder and is always reassuring for those looking to buy.

“The development’s attractiveness is strengthened by the fact that it’s a short walk from Bath’s bustling city-centre along the pedestrian tow path and those wanting to catch a train further afield can also walk to Bath Spa in about 15 minutes.”

Current availability includes a selection of two-bedroom apartments in the Royal View and Sovereign Point buildings with immediate occupation available on the former. 

With their unique curved designs, both buildings sit proudly on the banks of the river and are unlike anything ever seen before in the city. Designed by award-winning architects Studio Egret West, the figure of eight design of both buildings creates depth while maximising the views.

Creating a sense of fluidity across all eight floors of the building, it purposefully contrasts with other elements of the Bath Riverside masterplan, responding to the landscape and waterside setting.

But it’s not just the outside that has impressed house hunters but also the inclusion of a stunning atrium which stretches from the ground floor all the way up the eight stories of each building to the vast skylight above.

Including planted columns that mirror the organic surroundings of the building or green walls that imitate the plating outside, the atriums act as the communal heart to the building and are unlike anything ever seen before in the world heritage city.

Leigh added: “Both Royal View and Sovereign Point have really captured the imagination of house hunters looking for somewhere to live in Bath and the chance to move in straight away is bound to appeal to those not wanting to hang about.”

The Bath Riverside sales and marketing suite, which is located on Victoria Bridge Road is open from 10am to 5pm. For further information on Bath Riverside please call 01225 463517 or visit
