Sulis Down proves perfect for families

Sulis Down case study

Husband and wife Matt and Claire, daughter Katie, and pet dog Toby had lived in and around the Bath area for several years and were on the hunt for a new property in a different part of the city. The family were looking to be closer to Bath’s range of excellent schools and local amenities, whilst still benefiting from easy access to the outdoors.

In their search for a new home, Countryside’s Sulis Down development, located on the edge of the city in the beautiful Somerset countryside, proved to be the perfect location for the whole family.

Claire said: “Sulis Down is in a truly fabulous location. The rural setting offers us the peace and quiet of the countryside whilst only being a few miles from Bath’s bustling city centre. Since moving into our new home, we’ve been enjoying daily countryside dog walks together and taking weekend trips into the city using the nearby Park and Ride.”

It wasn’t just the idyllic location that sold Claire and Matt on Sulis Down. It was their first time buying a new build property, so they had undertaken a lot of research, considering not only the quality of materials being used but also the reputation of developers. As well as being the UK’s leading mixed tenure developer, Countryside’s consideration for the environment and the importance it places on building sustainable communities stood out to the couple.

It was The Paragon, a spacious 3-bedroom semi-detached house set over three floors that ticked all the boxes for the family. The layout of the house suits their lifestyle and allows the family to spend more time together, boasting a large living room with doors that open onto the garden, and an open-plan kitchen and dining area.

Matt commented: “The generously sized master bedroom with an ensuite, along with two further double bedrooms was a major selling point in our search for a three-bed home.”

Claire and Matt said the entire process, from reserving the property to moving in, was a positive experience and allowed the family to settle into their new home with ease.
