Article image There are many attributes that have attracted house hunters to Bath’s leading new property development.

It’s location for one has been a big draw - being just over a 10 minute stroll to the city-centre along the car-free, pedestrian towpath - while the style of the properties, which are in-keeping with the Regency style made famous by Bath architects Ralph Allen and John Wood back in the 18 Century, has also made people sit up and take notice.

The range of properties has also acted to pull people in, from the one-bedroom apartments and top-floor penthouses, to the three and four-bedroom townhouses that are currently available.

It’s why over 200 private sales have been completed at Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside where a mix of first time buyers, downsizers, families, couples or those just looking for a change have now made it their home.

Another vital factor in the development’s success has, according to the sales team, been the attention to detail and specification of the properties for sale.

Whether it’s the taps on the sinks or handles on the doors, incorporating stylish, practical and good quality products in all the new properties has clearly appealed to the discerning house hunter.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: “It’s often the smaller details that house hunters look out for. The vast majority of those who visit Bath Riverside just love what they see, however when it comes to buying, understandably they want to make sure the finer details are just as good as the big ticket items.

“The devil is always in the detail so buyers want to know what make the kitchen is, where the bathroom is from and whether it is of good quality and has been well appointed.

“You often hear the term ‘high-end spec’ and buyers today often have a myriad of questions, so it pays to demonstrate right from the off the quality of the finish available.”

Fortunately the specification of the properties at Bath Riverside justifies its tag as being the leading property development in the South West and compliments perfectly the development’s overall character.

For example the townhouses currently for sale include fully-fitted Alno kitchens with stone worktops and matching upstands, Siemens brushed steel appliances such as pyroclean multifunction oven, combination steam oven, integrated fridge/freezer, integrated dish washer and undermounted stainless steel sink with Hansgrohe mixer taps.

The bathrooms are just as impressive with Villeroy & Boch suites and Kaldewei bath, Porcelanosa tiling to bathrooms and en-suite and Hansgrohe taps and shower fittings. The main bedroom also benefits from a double ended Villeroy & Boch bath along with separate shower cubicle.

Porcelanosa ceramic floor tiles are also used throughout the ground floor.

As for the joinery and doors, greeting home owners will be an Oak finished front door with brushed stainless steel furniture while inside the Vicaima Oak finished internal doors also with brushed stainless steel furniture will impress further.

Natural Oak handrails and newel posts on the stairs are other features that have drawn positive comment from those looking to buy.

Susan added: “Very often it’s the smaller details that people look out for and the properties at Bath Riverside have them in abundance! It’s what makes the development stand out from the crowd added to which Crest Nicholson’s reputation as being one of the most respected new property developers in the UK.

“With each phase at the development also being completely different is again something that makes it so unique.”
