Article image House hunters in Bath wanting to move into a brand new townhouse property that’s inherently typical with the world heritage city, are being directed to Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside development.

With a selection of stunning new four-storey, four-bedroom period-style houses available now, those looking to be in by the Autumn should check out the limited release currently available that presents buyers a unique opportunity to live in a brand new property in close proximity to the city-centre.

Unlike anything else available in the city at present, the chance to own one of these brand new townhouses has become more of a reality as the current price of £595,000 places them in the range that qualifies for the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.

Only properties that are priced below £600,000 qualify for Help-to-Buy, under which buyers are only required to provide a deposit of 5% of the property value.

The Government provides a further loan of up to 20% through the Homes and Communities Agency, and means buyers can apply for a lower mortgage at more attractive rates.

Current availability includes a selection of four-bedroom townhouses on the Longmead Terrace phase. Built from light-coloured Bath stone, these brand new properties benefit from modern features tailored with the lifestyle of today’s busy home owner.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: “We really can’t stress enough that there are currently no other opportunities like this in Bath. Those wanting a townhouse that’s new and close to the city-centre really do need to pop down to take a look.

“There are many benefits to living in a townhouse and they appeal to a diverse range of buyers. The versatile living space can be adapted to the owner’s needs providing plenty of room to live in.

“The additional attraction of the properties on Longmead Terrace is that while they maintain a traditional Georgian-style look, the fact that they are brand new means they benefit from modern building techniques. They therefore have much lower running costs.

“The Help to Buy scheme has opened up the market to even more house hunters and for those who are looking to move now could have the keys to their new home by the Autumn.”

Proximity to a number of local schools has also made the development an attractive proposition for families looking to move.

Susan added: “For prospective purchasers the current price now provides a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy a brand new house in the centre of the city.

“This makes the properties at Bath Riverside, including the townhouses currently available, very attractive for those wanting a property in the Georgian-style.

“It’s been very interesting to see people’s reactions when they visit the development for the first time. Our advice is if you’re looking to move then give Bath Riverside a visit, you won’t be disappointed.”
