Riverside townhouses ease the Christmas bulge

Brand new townhouses at Bath Riverside

As the Christmas memories fade and life returns to some form of normality, home owners fed up with the annual squash of fitting in the relatives, decorations and presents should consider looking at a select number of four-bedroom, four-storey properties currently available at Bath’s leading property development.

Located on Stothert Avenue at Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside, the properties are anything but traditional in terms of their layout and should appeal to those wanting to live in a Regency-styled home, but with the advantage of having a much more contemporary and considerate design.

A modern take on the classical terraces synonymous with the world-famous city, these properties are clad in the pale honey-hued stone that gives the city its timeless appeal.

And at just under 2,000 square feet, each of the six properties on Stothert Avenue offer a layout and level of space not normally associated with a traditional townhouse giving owners an unparalleled amount of room.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: “If Christmas was a bit of a squash then the properties currently available on Stothert Avenue offer the perfect solution to those wanting a bit more space.

“We all want to enjoy Christmas so there’s nothing worse than tripping up over the pet dog, trailing legs and mounds of boxes and wrapping paper!

“What is key here is that house hunters need to dispel the traditional notion of a typical townhouse layout. Seeing, in this case, really is believing, and the design of these six properties mean owners will enjoy living in a home normally associated with a two-storey house.”

For those wanting to take a look can view a brand new show home that demonstrates how the space can be used to ease the battle of the bulge!

The ground floor comprises the spacious kitchen/breakfast room while the bi-folding doors not only let in plenty of natural light but helps extend the feeling of space as well as direct access out into the garden.

The amount of space this room affords not only means it can accommodate the dinner table but the alcove is great for either a children’s play area so parents can keep an eye on their little ones while they prepare meals or somewhere to put a lazy sofa.

A utility cupboard maximises the storage space and the fourth bedroom or study, which is also on the ground floor, is the perfect retreat for those who need to work from home or where teenage children can study hard for GCSE or A level exams.

A handy ground floor cloakroom completes the picture and is particularly useful for those who like to keep shoes, wellies and coats out of the way.

Moving up to the first floor house hunters will find the main living areas including living room and dining room. With French doors onto the balcony, two doors off the staircase helps divide this living space into two distinct areas.

On the second floor are two further bedrooms plus bathroom and airing cupboard. Bedroom two also includes a built in wardrobe again making the most of the space.

The master bedroom, which is en suite, takes up the whole of the third floor. With two sets of French doors leading out onto a south facing terrace, it’s a real oasis of calm that drinks in the sunlight and has superb views towards the surrounding hills.

There is also a wardrobe and airing cupboard.

Susan added: “These properties also incorporate more modern building techniques which means they are perhaps a little warmer and cheaper to run than those built during Georgian times.

“They should therefore appeal for those who want the feel of a period property but with the convenience of living in a modern home.”
