The traditional perception of a Georgian-styled Bath townhouse is a property of endless steps, drafty living areas, split over three or four floors.
However the release of some new, three and four-bedroom, four-storey townhouses at Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside should appeal to those wanting to live in a Regency-styled property, but with the advantage of having a much more modern design.
With some being available to move into from the end of April, these properties are located on Longmead Terrace and represent a more contemporary take on the classic Bath terraces.
The opening of a new show home will also give potential buyers an idea on the lifestyle they could soon be enjoying. Designed by Bristol-based Andrew Henry Interiors, one of the UK’s leading interior designers, it will provide inspiration for those looking to furnish their new home.
The ground floor offers a fantastic family breakfast room with the designer Alno kitchen but what will draw potential buyer’s attention are the bi-fold patio doors which lead out onto a decked terrace and private garden.
These folding doors not only let in plenty of natural light but help extend the feeling of space.
The two tone kitchen has sleek handle free cupboard doors and a composite stone worktop providing a modern feel with integrated Siemens appliances to include a steam/combi oven, single oven, dishwasher, wine cooler, fridge/freezer and induction hob.
The first floor comprises the main living room and dining area or study which is ideal for those wanting to work from home.
On the second floor are two bedrooms plus bathroom and airing cupboard. Bedroom two also includes a built in wardrobe, again making the most of the space.
The master bedroom, which is en suite, is on the third floor. There is ample wardrobe space and second airing cupboard.
Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: “The focus at the development is very much on townhouses and what’s pleasing is that interest has remained high.
“It shows there is demand for properties of this type and the opening of the Longmead Terrace showhome will help add to this interest.
“Also, as these are presently the only new townhouses being built in Bath places an element of urgency for anyone wanting this sort of home within walking distance of the city centre.
“The development is also within walking distance of numerous junior and secondary schools and because you can walk into the centre of Bath along the car-free, pedestrian towpath is a big attraction.”
For those wanting a hassle free move, Crest Nicholson is offering part exchange to anyone who wants to purchase one of the new homes currently available.
The offer of part exchange is seen as a great way for anyone wanting to secure their own riverside townhouse while letting Crest get on with the job of selling their current home.
Each property will also benefit from resident parking.
