Guild Heritage House is a unique conversion offering beautiful apartments in an Edwardian building, says James Higgins
Guild Heritage House is a new development tucked away in the central district of Old Market. Built in 1913, the building now comprises a collection of stylish one- and two-bedroom apartments and studios. Old Market is ideally situated in the city – a historic quarter, it has good pedestrian links to the city centre, Temple Meads station, and bustling harbourside.
The Guild Heritage building is a beautiful red brick construction with rounded corners, stonework and a grand Edwardian portico. Situated on Bragg’s Lane, a quiet street, it has parking spaces (available via separate negotiation) at the rear. The development further benefits from bike storage and automated security gates.
Internally, the properties are completed to an exacting standard – featuring (as standard) in all three styles of property available are high-specification kitchens with integrated appliances, cool colour schemes, spotlights, and wood flooring and fittings.
Many of the abodes enjoy large and plentiful windows and high ceilings – these homes have an airy atmosphere that imbues the entire development. Centred around open-plan living spaces, the interesting dimensions and architecture of the building means each apartment has its own unique character. There’s also some wonderfully restored fireplaces and stunning sash windows that retain the building’s character.
Old Market is an upcoming area of Bristol – regenerating into a stylish location bursting with cafes, pubs, and boutique shops. There’s also some excellent nightlife to be had at venues like Old Market Assembly which hosts vibrant shows and live music – The Wardrobe Theatre, which features independent theatre, comedy and music – and The Exchange which is an excellent bar and music venue.
Excellent public transport links are available from the city centre for those areas beyond walking distance, although most of the city’s shops, facilities and even Temple Meads station are no more than 15 minutes’ walk door-to-door.
Help-to-buy is available on selected plots, meaning to move into Savill’s Guild Heritage House could be easier than you might think.
