Article image House hunters wanting to buy a brand new apartment in Bath are being advised to get their skates or risk missing out on what will be the last chance for the foreseeable future.

News on the final availability of apartments comes from Bath Riverside where the focus of the development will move more towards houses over the next 24 months.

It means anyone who was considering buying an apartment will need to make up their minds now, or wait until 2018 when the next phase of apartments will be built.

Including two-bedroom apartments the properties form part of the Leopold House and Alexandra House phases and are ideal for a range of buyers including those wanting a city bolt-hole, first home, city-centre lock up and leave or somewhere to invest.

Anyone considering a new apartment in the world heritage city are now being advised to take a closer look at the development which has created a stunning new residential quarter for the city. 

Christine Hamilton, Crest Nicholson Regeneration’s sales advisor of the year is now keen to make sure those who think there is plenty of time to think again and make up their minds!

Christine said: “Apartments at Bath Riverside have always proved popular and these particular properties are no exception.

“It’s vital that anyone who was considering buying an apartment at the development make up their mind now. Once they are all sold, that’ll be it for a couple of years as we enter a phase where the main focus will be on houses.”

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

Christine added: “Apartments are ideal for a range of buyers and the design and specification ticks a lot of boxes. 

“For first time buyers, the apartments present the perfect opportunity to get on the first rung of the property ladder especially as the Help to Buy scheme is available at the development.

“For those looking to downsize whether it’s to release some equity, reduce running costs or just for a change of scene, the development has already attracted a lot of buyers wanting to move into a more manageable home.

“A lot of apartment owners at Bath Riverside are those who were fed up with maintaining the large family home or who just wanted a change and all those I have spoken to are just loving their new lifestyle.”

With a mix of shared communal gardens, play areas and seating areas on the banks of the River Avon there is also plenty of outdoor space for residents to enjoy.
