Finzels Reach offers a stunning assortment of contemporary homes, including this gorgeous, south-facing two-bedroom apartment, writes James Higgins
This two-bedroom property is part of Malt House, one of the exclusive city centre developments in Finzels Reach. Malt House features an impressive stone façade, a remnant of its former days as a base for the Courage Brewery. Behind the industrial exterior are 21st century apartments served by a concierge in the entrance lobby and lifts to each floor.
This stylish apartment is one of the city centre’s newest properties and features some of the best contemporary fixtures and fittings. It features an open-plan room arrangement and comprises an entrance hallway, a kitchen/sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The hallway has several built-in cupboards providing useful storage space, including plumbing for a washer/dryer.
The kitchen/sitting room benefits from a Juliette balcony; this tremendous ground-to-ceiling aspect is south-facing and welcomes in ample natural light to make this room resplendent throughout the day. There is space in the room for a flexible arrangement of furniture including a dining table and chairs, sofa and arm chairs.
The kitchen has white gloss units and black floor tiles for a monochromatic, stylish appearance. The blue-tinted glass splashbacks add a delightful splash of colour. It features integrated appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, oven, hob, overhead extractor and fridge/freezer.
The bedrooms also benefit from ground-to-ceiling aspects – all are, again, south-facing. With a limited palette of colours, the rooms reflect modern simplicity but have lots of character. Both have space for double beds and wardrobes. The bathroom has a large bath with a shower over and glazed splashback, and wall-mounted sanitaryware.
The area is superbly located; across the water, Castle Park provides thoroughfare to Cabot Circus, whilst a harbourside path provides convenient access to Temple Meads station away from busy, noisy roads. The historic city is a few minutes’ walk away as are the city’s numerous cultural attractions.
