Article image Bath house hunters looking for ideas on where to move in the city will be interested to know that two brand new show homes have opened their doors at city’s leading property development.

Located at Crest Nicholson’s impressive Bath Riverside, they provide the perfect insight as to why the development has become one of the most sought after places to live in the city.

In addition, Albert Crescent, which also includes two distinctive show homes, is being re-launched to those looking for a unique new home on the banks of the River Avon.

To commemorate the occasion the sales team will be holding an open weekend on 14 and 15 May when house hunters and those interested in seeing the three properties can pop along to take a look around.

Private sales at the waterside development have steadily increased over recent months as buyers, including many from the local area, have come to realise the variety of properties on offer as well as the quality of the specification and build.

Many local buyers have also been attracted by the prospect of living in a more modern home which affords lower running costs and less maintenance, unlike a lot of the classic Georgian properties so typical across the city.

Stunning new show homes

The first of the new show homes is a stunning penthouse apartment in Leopold House.

Differentiated from other properties by their luxury features, the penthouse apartments that are now on the market at the waterside development are no exception. Softly warmed by under floor heating it’s the perfect sanctuary for those who enjoy a living space that comes with plenty of room and is light and airy.

Boasting spectacular views out across the rooftops of Bath, the specification is of the highest quality and demonstrates admirably all the trappings Penthouse living brings from al fresco dining, soaking up the sun on the decked terrace and the peace and security of the top floor retreat.

The second show home is a beautifully appointed four-storey, four-bedroom townhouse on Percy Terrace and will appeal to those wanting to live in a Regency-styled property, but with the advantage of having a much more modern design.

Representing a more contemporary take on the classic Bath terraces, this particular show home, which has been designed by Bristol-based Andrew Henry interiors, showcases the benefits of townhouse living and the flexibility these properties provide.

Unique properties on edge of the river

Designed by award-winning architect Alison Brooks, the properties located on Albert Crescent are unlike anything ever seen before in the city.

Priced from £900,000 they are the only new houses in Bath to be built by the River Avon while the combination of the water views, luxury specification and fact that they are totally brand new makes these properties hard to resist.

The two show homes on this phase provides those looking for something a little different a great chance to see how the space can be used alongside the very latest furnishings, colours and textures.

Christine Hamilton, Crest Nicholson Regeneration sales advisor of the year is now looking forward to showing potential buyers around and explaining why Bath Riverside has become the development of choice for those looking to move in the city.

Christine said: “The opening of just one new show home usually creates a high level of interest so to have two open at the same time, plus the re-launch of Albert Crescent will send house hunters into overdrive!

“Each will appeal to a varying range of buyers but the underlying theme being they demonstrate why Bath Riverside has proved so popular.”

Christine’s optimism is backed by the fact that private sales at the development have now topped the 300 mark and is a clear indication that people have been impressed by what they have seen.

A further attraction is the development’s location which is an easy 15 minutes’ walk from the city-centre along the car-free, pedestrian tow path.

Christine added: “Seeing is believing and those looking for either a townhouse or penthouse apartment in Bath need to pay the development a visit.

“The reactions of those who haven’t been here before is one of total amazement as they just didn’t realise what has been achieved.”
