Article image House hunters in Bath wanting to make the most of living in their own top floor pad but which has the added bonus of coming with a load of extra space should head to Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside.

That’s because availability includes a superb three-bedroom duplex apartment which is currently the only property of its kind at the development. 

Becoming popular in downtown Manhattan, New York at the beginning of the last century, duplex apartments usually make up the top two floors of a building.

Appealing to those looking for something chic, contemporary but with plenty of space, duplexes are normally defined as top-floor penthouses with two floors, connected by an inner staircase.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson Regeneration said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for someone wanting a new apartment but which has the added incentive of being over two floors.

"Having two floors makes an apartment feel more like a house and psychologically, there is still something special about going up and down the stairs.

“Another advantage of a duplex is the privacy they bring. Some people like being able to separate the private bedroom space away from their living space and is why they are the perfect solution for those wanting this type of home.”

But it’s not just the space inside that will appeal to potential house hunters but the extra outside space they provide. With balconies and terraces on both levels the duplex at the development is no exception.

Susan added: “Outdoor space in central Bath is quite hard to come by so to have your own private balcony and terrace is a wonderful way to take in the magnificent views out across the rooftops of the world heritage city.”

The three-bedroom duplex currently available at the popular development (plot 2294) certainly makes the most of its fourth and fifth floor position.

The lower floor comprises the three bedrooms all accessed off the hall with the main bedroom being en suite and having a built in wardrobe. The main bathroom serves the two remaining bedrooms while those wanting to enjoy the outside terrace can do so via the master and the second bedroom.

Stairs move from the hall up to the main open plan living space. Comprising kitchen, dining and living areas, there is also a handy shower room. Access to the terrace is through the double doors extending further the amount of room available.

Floor-to-ceiling windows make the property light and sunny adding to the sense of space while the high-end specification increases the property’s exclusive nature.

With sales at the development well over 150, the opportunity to live in a brand new property in close proximity to the centre of the city has clearly appealed to discerning house hunters wanting the best that Bath has to offer.

Described as being the most important project the world heritage city has seen for more than a century, the 44-acre development has already proved popular with those looking for a quality new home in the heart of Bath.

Mixing a stylish collection of apartments and townhouses the development is located within walking distance to the heart of Bath, Royal Victoria Park, Queen Square and the city’s vibrant mix of shops and restaurants.
