Show home with furniture and fittings [Bristol Evening Post (England)]
(Bristol Evening Post (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Ashow home, complete with furniture and accessories, is one of the last properties for sale at Bristol's Harbourisde development. The two-bedroom apartment (plot 4118), which has spectacular views over the water and the ss Great Britain, has been "dressed" by Bristol-based Andrew Henry Interiors, with all the latest fabrics, wallpaper and lighting.
Susan Young, sales and marketing director for developer Crest Nicholson, said: "This really is a sold-as-seen opportunity like no other. As the last two-bedroom apartment at the development, it also represents the final chance for those looking for a property of this size down by the water. To have everything else included makes this ready-made, city-centre pad one of Bristol's hottest properties."
Not only is the property overlooking the floating harbour, but it's part of a new city quarter, designed for living and enjoying leisure time. It's also within walking distance of the city centre, while a water taxi stops right outside en route to Temple Meads station.
The apartment, in the Invicta building, on Canons Way just off Anchor Road, is priced Pounds 465,000.

GREEN-FINGERED BUYERS WANT GARDENS A study by house builder David Wilson Homes reveals that homeowners regard a garden as one of the most important factors in making a house a home.
It also revealed that a garden is most popular as a children's playground, with more than a quarter of those questioned saying this is the primary use of their outdoor space.
The survey also reflected the increasing importance of growing your own, with 23 per cent of people using their gardens to grow produce, while 16 per cent prefer to plant flowers and 13 per cent want to take it a little easier and entertain al fresco. Less than ten per cent use their garden primarily for sunbathing.
David Wilson Homes' sales director Louise Ware said: "We put a large emphasis on the outside space, working closely with landscape gardeners to provide the best environment possible."
David Wilson Homes, which has a number of developments in the Bristol area, carried out the research to mark its second year of supporting the British Beekeepers Association, with a pledge to ensure all its developments are planted with bee-friendly gardens and borders.
SELL YOUR HOME ON YOUR OWN New research shows that more than four out of ten home owners believe they would do a better job selling their own home than an estate agent and more than half do not believe estate agents have their best interests at heart during the buying and selling process.
Research by iProperty reveals that, in prime areas such as London, property owners could save more than Pounds 7,400 plus VAT if they don't use an agent, while the figure is Pounds 3,222 in the South West.
iProperty's survey of 1,200 people also found that the Welsh are the most confident in their ability to sell their home without an estate agent (51 per cent), while the Scottish are the least confident (34 per cent).
Those living in the South West think they could make more money selling their house than home owners in other regions (32 per cent).
iProperty, which has just launched at www.theipropertycompany.com, is a free-to-use website and app which allows home owners to manage the entire house selling process themselves.
