What makes a winning property for buyers? Attractive location, great amenities, good schools, an easy commute, value for money – the list goes on. This year in particular, many people are looking to upgrade in terms of style, comfort or size, as they spend more time living and working from home. Coronavirus has impacted on what buyers want and has led more people to seek out properties with access to green space, balconies, and parking spaces, to name a few key search trends for 2021. 


Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside development has proved popular for a number of reasons, not least for its attractive location – situated on the banks of the River Avon and within walking distance of the beautiful, historic city of Bath and its surrounding parks. With a selection of high-specification two bedroom apartments still remaining, these homes certainly tick a number of boxes for potential buyers.


Tracey Gallacher, Head of Sales and Marketing at Crest Nicholson South West, said “Bath Riverside is a beautiful site and has been sought after by first time buyers, couples and downsizers alike who are looking for homes with easy access to nearby amenities. All of the remaining apartments are ready to move into and many come with balconies and an underground parking space. With only a few apartments left, interested buyers should get in contact with our friendly Sales Executives to book a virtual viewing or visit our on-site sales suite and show homes.”


“Many of the remaining apartments are river facing, providing skyline views of Victoria Park and the River Avon. For those seeking out 180 degree views, the corner apartments offer a dual aspect to the living area, allowing even more light into the room – perfect for working or relaxing in.”


The development is located a short walk from local Victoria Park and residents can enjoy plenty of green space along the river, in addition to making the most of the on-site coffee shop and gym. The city centre is a five minute walk away, providing easy access to attractions such as Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent, the Roman Baths and Pulteney Bridge. Along with a multitude of restaurants, bars and pubs catering for all tastes and styles, Bath also offers several farmers markets which sell a wide range of goods, from local farm produce to fine antiques.


For those looking for good transport links, Bath Spa train station is only a 15 minute walk from Bath Riverside, offering multiple routes including direct trains to London Paddington in roughly an hour and a half. The M4 is less than 11 miles north of Bath, providing easy access to Bristol, Reading, the M25, London and beyond. Residents can also make the most of easy access to the surrounding countryside – with an abundance of low rolling hills and green river valleys that begin within a couple of miles of the city centre.


In terms of education, Bath has a number of high-performing primary and secondary schools, including Saint Gregory's Catholic College, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. Both the University of Bath and Bath Spa University are approximately a 10-15 minute car journey or a 30 minute bike ride from the development.


Two-bedroom apartments are available to buy with prices ranging from £535,000 to £655,000 for the fully-furnished show home. For more information, or to book an appointment with our sales team, call 01225 562873 or visit https://www.crestnicholson.com/developments/bath-riverside/.
