Countryside South West were delighted to welcome the first residents to Sulis Down at the end of June, marking a major milestone for its flagship scheme.

Located on the southern edge of the City of Bath, Sulis Down is a 171-home development set in an idyllic countryside setting, offering homeowners the best of both country and city living. The first show home and marketing suite were opened at the site in May, and to date the development has already sold over 20 properties. Now the first customers have started to move into their new homes.

Simon and Rachel are amongst the first official residents to move into the development. The newly married couple had been living and working in London for several years, but when Rachel was offered a new job opportunity in the Bath area, they both jumped at the chance to make the move out of the capital.

Keen to find a home that would suit their lifestyle, Simon and Rachel were immediately drawn in by the location of Sulis Down. Situated along one of their favourite walking routes in the stunning Somerset countryside, with a nearby Park and Ride offering up easy access to Bath city centre, the development struck the perfect balance between country and city life that the couple were searching for.

Sulis Down boasts a beautiful collection of two-bedroom apartments and two, three, four and five-bedroom houses to choose from. It was The Pulteney, a three-bedroom semi-detached home with its spacious living room, separate kitchen/dining room, and master bedroom with an en-suite, that ticked all the boxes for Simon and Rachel.

Simon commented: “We are absolutely delighted with our new home. We love how spacious and practical all the rooms are and plan to use the spare two bedrooms as a home office and a guest bedroom. The second bathroom is perfect for when family and friends come to visit us for long weekends in Bath.”

He added: “The unique design and modern country style of the homes at Sulis Down was another major selling point for us. Made with natural Bath stone, the homes look beautiful and stand out against other new-builds on the market.”
