An eco-inspired development in the heart of Montpelier

he area of Montpelier is the epitome of Bristol bohemia – local artists line the streets with their works and colourful frontages of the historic Victorian and Georgian properties are a pretty sight. 

This eco-led development of just fourteen one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and six work space units is on Picton Lane in the heart of Montpelier. Picton Lane offers a great choice of apartments, many with courtyard gardens or outside space, and a top specification throughout. Residents will also enjoy a communal garden and Help to Buy is available on the scheme.

The area is packed with independent shops, relaxed cafes, great bistros and local pubs serving up craft beers and occasionally putting on live music. The long-established Italian deli Licata is also on Picton Street along with Yogasara, Oowee Diner, Thali Café and Bianchis. Herbert’s Bakery, another great Bristol institution is also just around the corner. 

Walk through the Rainbow Wall and you’ll find yourself in Montpelier Park, the much-loved community hub with children’s play equipment and a leafy canopy ideal for whiling away those warm summer afternoons.

Inside the properties you’ll find brand-new kitchens fitted out with the latest utilities – quartz worktops with matching upstands, integrated ovens, hobs, dishwashers and fridge-freezers, and plumbing for a washing machine in the utility cupboard. The bathrooms and shower rooms are fitted with Aquadart shower enclosures and Hansgrohe exposed thermostatic chrome showers.

The homes have been decorated with a modern finish, with neutral carpets in the bedrooms and hallways, white-painted walls and ceilings, and white oak veneered internal doors. 

They also feature mains-operated smoke alarms, a video-entry system and 10-year structural warranty for the buildings. Highly insulated thermal walls result in very low U-values and high levels of air tightness, and triple-glazed windows, thick exterior doors and solar panels will noticably lower your energy bills.

Living in Montpelier, you’ll likely not be far away from your place of work, especially if you make use of the creative co-working spaces found locally. Picton Lofts are walking distance to the University, BRI Hospital, Cabot Circus, Temple Quay and the wider central Bristol area. If you need to travel, take a train from Montpelier’s own station straight to Bristol Temple Meads. With Bristol Bus and Coach Station also close by, all forms of public transport are pretty much on your doorstep.   

Montpelier is part of a wider community that includes Gloucester Road and Stokes Croft where lively arts and theatre venues reflect the independent spirit of the area. It’s little wonder that Montpelier is as popular with young professionals as it is with families; in fact it’s one of Bristol’s top places to live.
