House hunters looking for a brand new, three-bedroom house in the centre of Bath should head to the city’s leading property development.
Located at Bath Riverside they include a select range of stunning new, four-storey townhouses.
Presenting a unique opportunity to buy a brand new property in the heart of the world heritage city, these particular townhouses can be found on Longmead Terrace.
With high ceilings, large reception rooms and stunning bathrooms, the properties at Bath Riverside have the added advantage of being completely brand new, meaning little or no maintenance while the specification is of the highest quality and includes leading appliances such as Siemens and Miele.
While the development reflects the exciting, modern attitude of the city, the exterior design of these townhouses remains true to Bath’s Georgian roots, but with a specification and layout that better suits the needs of today’s discerning house hunter.
Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson, believes the chance to pick up a new, centrally located house, is a golden opportunity for those wanting to enjoy all that Bath has to offer.
Susan said: “We have priced a limited number of townhouses at £595,000 which means they qualify for the Government’s Help-to-Buy scheme.
“This means prospective purchasers have a fantastic chance to buy one of these stunning new townhouses for £476,000.”
The scheme works for properties priced at below £600,000, under which buyers are only required to provide a deposit of 5% of the property value. This means the purchaser will have to pay just 80 per cent the cost of the property – made up of a 75 per cent mortgage and five per cent deposit.
The Government provides a further loan of up to 20% and means buyers can apply for a lower mortgage at more attractive rates.
For the first five years the Government’s loan is interest-free. In the sixth year, buyers are charged 1.75% interest, which then climbs at 1% every year after that plus any increase in inflation as measured by the RPI.
Susan is also keen to stress that although the appearance of these homes reflects the design of the classic Georgian terraces that are such a feature of Bath, they have the advantage of being built to modern standards and therefore have lower running costs since they are more energy efficient.
She added: “The townhouses on Longmead Terrace are a fitting addition to the city’s legacy of having some of the best examples of Georgian architecture in the UK.”
The ground floor features a spacious family breakfast room with a designer Alno kitchen and bi-fold patio doors leading out onto a decked terrace and private garden. The kitchen includes integrated Siemens appliances to include a steam/combi oven, single oven, dishwasher, wine cooler, fridge/freezer and induction hob.
The first floor comprises a living room with an area that can be used for dining or as a study for those working from home.
On the second floor are two bedroom, one with built-in wardrobe, plus a bathroom and airing cupboard. The en-suite master bedroom is on the third floor, and has ample wardrobe space.
