Bristol's most sought-after development has a penthouse apartment fit for a king, writes Sammy Milton
If you’re looking for something a little special, then look no further than perhaps the most desirable development in Bristol at the moment.
The General is located overlooking Bristol’s historic harbourside, on the site of the former general hospital. The original grandeur of the building has been carefully restored and updated, and the highest possible quality can be found both outside and in.
This home is the cream of the crop. Located on the top floor of the development, the stunning two/three double-bedroom penthouse apartment is arranged over two floors.
The open-plan lounge/diner is up first. Finished to a dizzyingly high standard, it features a pleasant mix of contemporary and traditional fixtures, included stripped wooden flooring, high ceilings and large picture windows. There’s a door that leads out onto the beautiful balcony that overlooks the water – you won’t get better views anywhere else!
The kitchen can be found towards the back of this space. Of an excellent size, it features a range of integrated features to keep everyone happy, including an electric oven, hob and dishwasher. There are white wall and base units and there's plenty of space to cook up a storm – perfect for any budding chefs!
The bedrooms are simply divine. Both are huge, with more of those high ceilings and gorgeous curved windows that allow the light to flood in. They are carpeted throughout, and the master has the bonus of a mezzanine dressing room and an en suite luxury shower room. Both are styled with exquisite furnishings, and there’s an attractive grey and white colour scheme.
A third bedroom/study is an attractive bonus. There’s more of that luscious carpeting, and there’s direct access to the balcony via a shuttered door. This space would be ideal for those who work from home, or it could even be a nursery.
A utility cupboard with washing machine and a family bathroom completes the apartment, featuring tiling throughout, a shower over the bath, ceiling spotlights and a large vanity mirror.
That’s not all though. This property comes complete with two tandem parking spaces – a rare thing when located so centrally – and it is offered furnished, so moving in will be even less hassle!
As well as living in one of the most beautiful areas of the city, you’re close to all the very best that the development has to offer. The Michelin-starred Casamia (perhaps the best restaurant in the South West), Paco Tapas and Pi pizzeria are all run by the UK’s best chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias and can be found on the lower level of the General, and you’re within walking distance of all the wonderful amenities the harbourside has to offer. The city centre is easily accessed either on foot or by bus, and Temple Meads train station is but a short stroll away, giving you access to Bath, London and beyond.
This apartment is available from 25 September – and you can just bet it won’t hang around for long – so don’t miss out and book your viewing today!
