The chance to live in a brand new penthouse in the city of Bath was always going to create a high level of interest.
Luckily house hunters in the world heritage city wanting to live the high life have never had it so good, with the city’s leading new property development, Bath Riverside, providing a range of top-floor pads ideal for those looking for something a little different.
However the chance to secure one of the high-end properties is fast running out, with only a handful now available to buy.
The urgency to consider making an offer on one of these last remaining penthouses has been heightened by the fact that the developer, Crest Nicholson, is offering to pay the stamp duty in full and, a potential five-figure saving.
The Views Have It
There are numerous reasons why these properties have appealed to Bath-bound house hunters.
But what gives these spectacular properties added kudos is the fact that there are no other new properties in the city that provide such spectacular views of the city and surrounding countryside.
They allow owners to sit in the beautifully appointed lounge with their floor to ceiling windows, or on the terrace or balcony and drink in all that the world heritage city has to offer.
The perfect retreat for those who enjoy entertaining in a living space that comes with plenty of room, is light and airy and has views unlike anything else in the city, all the remaining penthouses are finished to the highest specification.
With bespoke kitchens and bathrooms these properties are also softly warmed through under floor heating.
Marcus Evans, Sales and Marketing Executive at Crest Nicholson said: “The city of Bath is renowned across the world for its Georgian architecture and links to the Roman empire.
“The chance to sit back and relax in your own top floor penthouse while taking in views of this remarkable city is one not to be missed.”
Another significant factor to the development’s appeal is the fact that it provides an easy, flat walk into the centre of the city.
Choosing between the pedestrian towpath or along Upper Bristol Road via the newly refurbished Victoria Bridge, residents can walk to the centre in about 15 minutes including Bath Spa train station.
Whether it’s for business or leisure, the appeal of being able to walk on the level is clearly attracting a growing number of house hunters to the development.
Marcus added: “More of our buyers have commented that this is a major factor for choosing to buy here with some now ditching the car in favour of walking. Being so close to the centre of Bath and all its amenities means you’ve got all you need close to your doorstep.”
