Article image House hunters in Bath looking for a new, waterside apartment are being advised to visit Bath Riverside, the multi award-winning development on the south banks of the River Avon.

However, anyone seriously interested in buying will need to get a move on as strong demand has resulted in only a handful of this property type remaining.

Located in the Alexandra House phase, the two-bedroom properties are positioned from the ground floor up to the fourth, and the variety is expected to appeal to those with different buying criteria from those wanting views to easy ground level access.

Not just the preserve of trendy hipster thirty somethings, these apartments have appealed to a wide-ranging clientele such as downsizers or those wanting a lock up and leave.

Crest Nicholson, the housebuilder, is offering to pay the stamp duty and with Help to Buy available has broadened the scope of potential buyers to include first timers wanting to unlock the door to their first home.

A pleasant 15 minute walk along the flat, pedestrian tow path or Upper Bristol Road takes residents to the heart of the city centre and amongst the wide range of shops, cafes and local amenities, and has acted as another major selling point for buyers.

Christine Hamilton, sales advisor said: “A recent surge in sales since the summer has meant fewer and fewer opportunities on our apartments and we’re now geared up to sell most, if not all of these by early 2017.

“It’s interesting to note that around 75 per cent of buyers at the development have come from the local area while a staggering 97 per cent said the have some kind of connection to Bath.

“There is now a thriving new community at Bath Riverside that has fast developed its own sense of being which has become part of the fabric of the city.

“Anyone who was considering buying an apartment at the development must make up their mind now or have to wait until the next phase of apartments is released.”
