line-height:150%;font-family:Arial">The advantages of living in a city centre

are many.

Proximity to theatres, concert venues and

cinemas means there's always something to do. Restaurants and pubs can be found

on most streets so there are plenty of options if you fancy a bite to eat or to

meet friends for a drink.

Employment opportunities usually outweigh

those found in towns or rural areas and more recently spiralling fuel costs means

those who choose to live in the city-centre can decide whether they want to

dispose with the added expense of running a car.

In Bristol,

like a lot of UK

towns and cities, many people have been attracted not only by the inner-city buzz

but also the unparalleled convenience.

And at Crest Nicholson’s Harbourside

development there’s no doubting that the attractions of living in the

city-centre is why so many people have decided to make the award-winning

development their home.

Situated in the heart of Bristol,

the waterside development overlooks the historic floating harbour and ss Great Britain.

Just a few minutes walk from Park Street and Queen Square, those

wanting to get to Temple Meads or the legal and financial district near Bristol Bridge can hop on the water ferry which

has a designated stop outside the development.

With some of the most expensive city centre

parking charges in the country and a local road network that is notoriously bad

especially during rush hour being able to walk to work does have its

attractions.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director

at Harbourside said: “Choosing a home at Harbourside puts people at the hub of

city centre life, with work and leisure opportunities just a short stroll away.

“Bristol

has a renowned creative flair and there is always something going on in the

city. It’s laid back persona has also acted as a catalyst for many people

looking for a new place to live.

“Harbourside reflects this exciting, modern

attitude with the majority of properties enjoying views of the water, the

rooftops of south Bristol and Brunel’s ss Great Britain and is why so many have

made it their home.”

With Bristol also being named the UK’s first

cycling city an increasing number of people are moving into the landmark development

to take advantage of the numerous cycle paths that criss-cross the city.

Add to the mix the water ferry and bus

network makes getting about a breeze.

Susan added: “With fuel increases, rising

insurance costs and expensive parking many people are opting to live close to

the centre and means they can opt out of car ownership and the associated

costs.”

The latest phase at the Harbourside, Beacon

House, comprises 47, one, two and three-bedroom apartments.  With 50% already sold the phase is spread

over seven floors. With every property in the phase

benefitting from water views those thinking of buying will be hard pushed to

find anything comparable in terms of size across the whole of Bristol.

Prices currently start from £259,995.
