Article image Bathonians popping home this Christmas to enjoy the festivities with family and friends can make the trip a more regular affair by considering a purchase at the city’s leading new property development.

It’s a well-known fact that once people have moved away, they seem to find themselves drawn back to live in the city where they either worked, studied, grew up or have family.

This trend to move back to Bath has been a consistent theme at Bath Riverside, the multi-award winning development located on the south banks of the River Avon, where 97 per cent of buyers said they have some connection with the city.

Built by Crest Nicholson, the sales team is forever hearing tales of buyers wanting to move back to Bath and the wide range of properties on offer at the development has now added to the city’s appeal for those who hold Bath close their hearts.

With thousands travelling home to enjoy Christmas in the city famous for its Roman baths and Georgian architecture, the few days off provides a great time for those considering a move back the chance to look at the new development and see how it has transformed the former Stothert & Pitt Engineers and Founders.

Christine Hamilton, sales advisor at the development said: “We like to call those who are looking to move back ‘Boomerang Bathonians’.

“Ever since we started on site, a common theme with the vast majority of buyers is that they have had some kind of link with the city. 

“What we’re saying is, rather than take advantage of what Bath has to offer every now and then, those who yearn to live back in what they regard as being their home city, should come and see what we’ve got on offer while they’ve got a few days off over Christmas.”

Current availability at the development includes a selection of two-bedroom apartments. Forming part of Alexandra House they are ideal for a range of buyer including first timers, investors, downsizers and those who just fancy a change.

More importantly they are perfect for those perhaps looking for a move back to Bath.

Walk to city centre

The only new development that is close to the centre of the world heritage city and on the banks of the River Avon, Bath Riverside has the added advantage of providing its residents with a flat, level walk to all the attractions and amenities on offer.

Choosing between the pedestrian towpath or along Upper Bristol Road via the newly refurbished Victoria Bridge, residents can be in the centre in about 15 minutes including Bath Spa train station.

Whether it’s for business or leisure, the appeal of being so close is clearly attracting a growing number of house hunters to the development.

Christine added: “More and more buyers have commented that one of the main reasons for moving here is because it is not located on one of the numerous hills that overlook the city.

“The fact that they can also walk into the centre of Bath is a big draw and has also acted to attract a raft of buyers.”
