This Victorian Gothic building is home to the most inspiring of apartments, writes Sammy Milton
If you’re looking for somewhere with a little history, then this might be the property that you’ve been searching for. 10 Unity Street is a former Merchant Venturers’ College building occupying a prime position in the city centre that dates back to 1865 and forms part of the city’s rich heritage.
Externally this property is extremely impressive. Converted into 49 contemporary apartments in 2005, this historic building retains a wealth of classic Victorian Gothic architecture, including exquisite red-brick arches, huge bay windows and an aura of classical style.
Set over two impressive floors, this home offers a plethora of modern touches and finishes. Upon entering, this is immediately apparent — light simply floods in through the wide bay windows, and the space is illuminated by the classy white walls and ceiling spotlights.
The first of two bathrooms can be found just off to the right — chic and stylish with a white suite, enclosed shower and white tiling throughout. There’s a large vanity mirror too — you won’t be fighting for space in the mornings here!
The huge open-plan living space is located towards the front of the scope. Extremely generous, there’s lots of room for a comfortable set up, and it provides the perfect area for winding down in the evening or entertaining any guests you may have! There’s stripped flooring throughout, and the whole space oozes a cool, sophisticated air.
The open-plan kitchen is just on the other side of this space. With room for a comfortable dining set up down the front, it’s a real work of art, and includes trendy wall and base units, granite worktops and integrated appliances.
A separate study completes this floor, ideally located behind the living area, and providing an excellent space for those who do not wish to be disturbed! There’s scope to turn this space into a third bedroom too, if so desired.
The second floor encompasses the two bedrooms and another bathroom.
The bedrooms are both of an excellent size — plenty of room for double beds with space left over — and they both feature integrated wardrobe space for even more storage. The master is extremely comfortable, carpeted throughout and featuring classy white walls. The windows have the unique viewpoint of looking over the open-plan living space and offer plenty of natural light. The second bedroom is, again, spacious, modern and light, offering contemporary fixtures and fittings that’ll keep everyone happy!
Unity Street is ideally situated for the best of city centre living. Located just off the bottom of Park Street, you have a wide range of local amenities around you to keep you happy. The harbourside is a short stroll away, and has a wide range of bars, restaurants and cafes to suit everyone, and the city centre, with its shopping opportunities, is close by too. There’s lots of local bus routes that run all over the city on your doorstep, and Temple Meads station is within walking distance. This is an ideally located property that has so much to offer, so don’t miss out!
