There have been many clichés written about how people, who have made a move to the world heritage city of Bath, have transformed the way they live and are enjoying things they never thought possible before.
But until now, there were some who were still perhaps a little sceptical about the reality!
Life is more relaxed; the people are friendlier; it’s cleaner; the city and countryside are stunning; there’s always something going on - are all things read and heard from those who have already made the move.
The good news however for those now considering making Bath their home is that it’s all pretty much true!
This, in part, is due to the building of Bath Riverside, the impressive new development located close to Bath city centre on the south banks of the River Avon, which has enabled many people to start enjoying a completely new way of life.
Including a mix of townhouses, villas, penthouses and apartments the inclusion of boulevards, parks, open spaces and communal areas has made the development the location of choice for those wanting to live in this gem of the West Country.
And because of the design of the homes and openness of the development, life’s a little more relaxed. It means those who have made it their home have more time to spend on the things that really matter, like family and friends.
Marcus Evans, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: “Bath Riverside has without doubt enriched the lives of those who now live here. In particular those who have moved from other parts of the country are finding the lifestyle especially relaxing as it’s something they’re just not used to!
“The development has also opened up space for the general public where they can sit, relax and enjoy the waterside surroundings.
“For most people, the day-to-day lifestyle is why they move to Bath. Bath Riverside has now added to the city’s attractiveness and judging by how the development has come along over the last six years, it seems both locals and those from outside the city like what they see.”
One big draw of Bath Riverside is the location. The short flat walk along either the riverside tow path or Upper Bristol Road to the vibrant city-centre means those who live here can be amongst all the attractions of the world heritage city after a pleasant 15 minute walk.
The design of the homes on offer have also been built with flexibility in mind, catering for today’s modern lifestyles.
Marcus added: “It’s a win, win for people who move here. Those who have come from older properties are spending less time and money on maintenance while having more time to enjoy the things they like.
“While those who have come from out of town, the lifestyle is just something they are making the most of and it’s great to see land, that was previously derelict, being revived for something that the city needs.
“But anyone considering buying will have to hurry as we’ve sold sixty per cent of the properties in the current phase, Royal View, so it really is the last chance to come and see the striking atrium and interior of this fantastic new building.
“We’ve also got a brand new show apartment opening on 11 November which will give house hunters a real feel for what life is like here at Bath Riverside.”
Those interested in seeing Bath Riverside for themselves, can visit the marketing suite on Victoria Bridge Road which is open daily from 10am to 5pm, where the friendly sales advisors can be reached on 01225 463517.
