1. Wapping Wharf, Bristol.

This clever new development at Wapping Wharf, just next to where the much loved M Shed museum resides, intends to create a completely new cosmopolitan area with a café culture that should be second to none when comparing with other areas in Bristol. Beautiful tree lined, paved walkways with granite features scattered throughout will give the area a wonderfully clean, yet urban feel. They are aiming to connect the southern side of Bristol, areas such as Southville and Bedminster, with their new shopping, leisure and of course residential area by means of a pedestrian walkway meaning it will be easy for everyone to enjoy the new cafés, restaurants and local shops! There will even be a 150 bedroom boutique hotel, ensuring the area is always vibrant and full of life. The 600 homes promise very high specification providing a stylish and sleek living space starting at around £180,000. It seems it will be an amazing place to live and perhaps a wise investment also.


2.  Finzels Reach, Bristol.

This particular development is in a brilliant area for anyone needing to be within close proximity of the city centre. Located just the other side of the popular Castle Park, with a proposed walkway straight over to the park, Finzels Reach holds a very strong position within the city. There are currently apartments available in the Castle Wharf and Malt House segments of the development with future phases still to come bringing further office and residential space alike. The specifications of these properties also promise superfluity with stunning modern fitted kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and thoughtfully designed communal areas where you can take the lift to your floor. For anyone working in the city centre, this is ideal and for those days off, The Galleries and the Broadmead shopping centres being just the other side of Castle Park is a real bonus.

3. Monmouth Place, Bath.

Situated on the Upper Bristol Road, between Queen Square and Norfolk Crescent, built using the traditional limestone of Bath and with Georgian-esque features, this lovely little terrace development of 7 town houses is sure to prove a hit with professionals in a position to buy and investors looking for a popular property to rent. The location is fantastic, with it taking just two minutes to walk to, and be within, the famous Royal Victoria Park and with all of the shops, pubs and clubs just a five minute walk away this positioning is ideal for most. With a shortage of family sized townhouses right within the city centre, these will surely prove a popular pick. The specification of these properties is to be very high, with underfloor heating, home network and audio fittings as standard, Villeroy & Boch sanitary equipment with marble settings, and what I’m sure will be a very relaxing courtyard area to enjoy as well. Starting at £595,000 these aren’t cheap, but will make a very happy and conveniently located family home!

4. Lyde Green, Emersons Green, Bristol.

A great new development located in Emersons Green, just 9 miles North of Bristol City Centre comprising a very diverse selection of around 1,700 new homes and apartments, with recreational parklands, not just one, but two schools, further commercial properties, leisure conveniences and of course shops for the new locals. To reiterate, there will be a large number of terraced, detached and semi-detached homes alongside further apartments which will give this community a huge and diverse range of people living within it. From £290,000 for a 4 bedroom semi-detached property, these will be snapped up eagerly by families who have been waiting for the right properties to come along. Investors will know that this is a very popular area for renters as well with its connections to the A4174 giving quick and easy access in to Bristol and also Bath and its proximity to good schools.

5. Bath Riverside.

The riverside development on Victoria Bridge Road set alongside the river Avon consists of studio flats, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments as well as some particularly stunning 4 bedroom townhouses, all conveniently positioned just a 5 minute walk away from a large Sainsbury’s supermarket and a 10 minute walk from the main shopping area of Bath, these luxury properties have a very high specification and provide a wonderfully contemporary way of life. The development is important to the regeneration of the river front in Bath, rebranding it as a contemporary residential quarter. These properties are available now with prices starting at £315,000 for a 1 bedroom flat, through £740,000 for a 3 bedroom flat, and rising to £1.3 million for the 4 bedroom townhouses. A luxury location and property here truly pulls a luxury price tag, but in the right property, what a fabulous place to live.
