  • Feeling a little SAD?

    Lift your spirits with the Daylight Biobulb!

    Daylight Biobulb

    Daylight Biobulb


    This time of year is not the most pleasant for everyone. The cold weather, long nights and dark mornings makes many of us feel low but the winter blues can often be a sign of a physical problem that affects millions of people every year.

    Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a genuine mood disorder that many people suffer from during the winter months.

    These seasonal mood variations are believed to be light related. Light, as we know, is essential for human health. Not only does sunlight help us produce vitamin D but it also appears to affect our mood and internal rhythms - such as our body clock.

    Normal light-bulbs do not produce the same type of light that daylight does. The Daylight Biobulb produces a more natural light that can go a long way to lift the depression that affects so many people during the winter months.

    The natural daylight producing bulb gives off three times the amount of natural light, or lumens, that conventional bulbs do. But this high output doesn’t mean they are not environmentally friendly, the Biobulbs are only 25W and work in a similar fashion to energy saving light bulbs – lasting for over 10,000 hours.

    And even if Seasonal Affective Disorder doesn’t affect you, having a natural light source can improve mood, prevent headaches and give a more natural, softer feeling to your home in the evening.

  • Lack of New Properties in Bristol as Demand Rises

    Bristol

    Bristol

    More new property needs to be built in Bristol to satisfy the current level of demand for quality new homes in the city.

    Many developers have scaled back on their build programmes during the recession which has resulted in a distinct shortfall of new properties.

    Fortunately those that had the foresight to maintain their build schedules are now in a strong position to satisfy the renewed demand with a selection of properties ideal for the discerning house hunter.

    One developer that has been robust enough to ride out the downturn is Crest Nicholson which continued to build at its Harbourside development on the city’s docks.

    It means those wanting a new apartment overlooking the historic floating harbour and within short walking distance of the city centre will find a selection of one and two-bedroom properties all ready for immediate occupation.

    Vicky Dudbridge, from selling agent King Sturge said:

    “The recession saw a decrease of property development in the city as house builders took steps to reduce outgoings and limit investments in order to survive the recession.

    But those that maintained their build programme throughout the downturn now have properties ready for occupation which allows home owners to buy now.”

    An example of Crest’s foresight is the latest phase on The Crescent. Called Beacon House it boasts a selection of modern and spacious apartments and will be coming on the market in 2010.

    Waterside Apartments

    Waterside Apartments

    Vicky added:

    “There’s no doubt that Harbourside is not only the premier waterside development in Bristol but is just about the only development that can offer a wide range of properties ideal for all house hunters.

    We are in an enviable location and people realise that this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a new property right on the water in the heart of the city. With all the amenities on their doorstep, purchasers cannot find what we have to offer anywhere else in Bristol.”

    But the chance to live in the city’s premier waterside development isn’t the only reason why house hunters are being advised to take a look. That’s because Crest is offering 5% towards the deposit making this an even more attractive proposition.

    Priced at £189,995 the apartment is located right in the heart of Bristol, which having been described as ‘the new London’ is perfect for those looking to take advantage of all the city has to offer.

    “This apartment really is a brilliant opportunity for anyone wanting the city centre, waterfront lifestyle that Harbourside offers. The location is second-to-none in Bristol and no other development can offer what we can.

    The offer of 5% towards the deposit is also a one off and as the property market begins to make a recovery we’re expecting this particular property to be snapped up immediately. Anyone considering buying will therefore need to act fast.”

  • Timing Right To Invest In Bristol's Harbourside

    Shrewd property investors are turning to Crest Nicholson’s Harbourside development in advance of Hargreaves Lansdown opening its new head quarters.

    Bristol harboursideWith occupancy of the new office due to take place later in the year, the number of potential new tenants the office could bring will provide those willing to buy at the development with a steady flow of occupants and good rental income returns.

    Since the New Year there has been an upturn in activity from private investors as well as repeat purchase from previous customers. As a result the sales team at the development are saying this is a good sign that confidence in the property sector has returned and now is the time to buy.

    Occupying 100,000 sq ft with frontage on Anchor Road, the new Hargreaves Lansdown HQ will provide room for up to 700 staff.

    With 1,500 staff already working in the HBOS building and 50,000 sq ft of space yet to be developed at 2 College Square, the number of workers in close proximity to the development is set to rise further.

    Vicky Dudbridge from selling agents King Sturge said:

    “Occupancy of 1 College Square will mark a significant milestone. The influx of people to the area will see demand for rental properties rise. Because of this our advice to anyone thinking of investing in property is to take a look at Harbourside and see for themselves what we have on offer.

    The fact that we’re getting more enquiries from investors is a clear indication that the property market is showing signs of recovery.

    If those looking to property as an investment weren’t confident they would get a return then we certainly wouldn’t be getting as many enquiries and reservations as we are.

    To see previous buyers come back is welcome news and we expect this to continue over the coming months.”

    With demand remaining robust, Crest Nicholson has just launched its latest phase.

    Called Ensign, it comprises 27, one and two-bedroom apartments, including a selection of spacious, bay-fronted properties that boast stunning views directly across Bristol’s historic floating harbour.

    Located right in the heart of Bristol, those living at Harbourside not only enjoy the benefits of a stunning new waterside development but all the trappings city centre living brings.

    The centre is only a few minutes walk away and there are numerous restaurants and bars close by including The Living Room, Chinese restaurant Zen and Pizza Express.

    For further information regarding these exclusive apartments please call 0117 908 8888 or visit www.harbourside.co.uk . Alternatively please visit the marketing suite on Cathedral Walk which is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
