Private sales at Crest Nicholson’s prestigious Bath Riverside development have topped the 100 mark.

A flurry of buyers since the beginning of the year includes families, couples, downsizers and professionals and the popular development has also proved a hit with investors.

Located on the site of the famous Stothert & Pitt, Engineers and Founders works, the development is the most important project to get off the ground in Bath for many years.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson Regeneration said sales had accelerated through Spring and looked set to continue strongly through the Summer.

She said: “The better weather has clearly brought homebuyers out in droves. Footfall around the new show apartment is well up and it’s not just people curious to take a look at what is available here.

“Homebuyers have been impressed by the standard of accommodation offered but have also been intrigued by the contemporary layout which incorporates private courtyards, landscaped seating areas and eye catching design.

“Although we have been on site for quite a while, it’s only more recently that people can start to appreciate the quality of what’s on offer now that the first major phase has been built. To achieve 100 private sales speaks for itself about the popularity of this development and clearly shows that house hunters like what they see.

“Bath Riverside is beginning to develop as a community in its own right and this adds immensely to the positive atmosphere. We have succeeded in creating a whole new living quarter for people near the centre of Bath - eighteen months ago the site was completely derelict and a real eyesore on one of the main routes into town.

“Now it’s a community the homeowners and the people of Bath can be proud of.”

Close proximity to Bath city-centre means Bath Riverside is ideal for those who either work in the city centre or need to catch a train. The pedestrian towpath gives residents direct and car-free route into the heart of the city in a matter of minutes.

The first phase at the development called Liberty Gardens comprises 240 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses. Split into three separate buildings, Imperial, Palladian and Highgate they offer a diverse range of accommodation and are finished in Bath stone and built to the highest of specification.

Each is spread over a number of floors with a variety of different styles and property sizes available.

With Imperial sold out current availability includes a couple of three-bedroom properties in Palladian plus a stunning penthouse. The popularity of the development has also resulted in the launch of Highgate and the release of a number of one and two-bedroom apartments.
