Factory No.1 is a stylish new collection of one- and two-bedroom city-centre homes located on East Street; the gateway to Bedminster.

Formerly the first tobacco factory of W.D and H.O Wills, these early 20th-century buildings have been restored and converted by City & Country into a range of exciting new apartments. Alongside the massive transformation of these historic buildings, five new apartment buildings have been designed around attractively landscaped courtyard gardens, which serve as a hidden oasis with the city streets just
minutes away.

All apartments, old and new, have been designed to maximise the many possibilities of the site. Original features have been retained in the apartments sitting within the original buildings, capitalising on the large windows and soaring ceilings, and some apartments even contain traditional fireplaces, delicate cornicing and plasterwork as evidence of a time gone by. Many of the apartments in the new buildings have terraces or balconies and all residents have access to a new gated under croft car park.

All the homes are fitted with integrated SMEG kitchen appliances and offer original interior designs. Kitchens feature different textures and contrasting tonal finishes to create an interesting and cohesive design, including wood and matt finishes, textured bronzed sleek handle and on trend quartz marble worktops. There are two distinctive specification styles for the bathrooms; a gold and matt-black theme – creating a softened industrial feel and a sleek, elegant white and grey marble theme – with chrome taps and shower fittings. For ultimate style and comfort underfoot, living areas have engineered oak flooring and bedrooms have 100% wool carpets. 

All properties at Factory No.1 are perfectly designed for modern living and working from home. Residents have access to open fibre networks which provide up to 300mbps. This infrastructure in place ensures high speed and reliable internet access, enabling residents to perform multiple online tasks simultaneously.

The Imperial Arcade sits beneath Factory No.1 and is set to be fully restored and transformed into a collection of creative workspaces and new retail premises, providing a vibrant mixed-use environment sure to attract a range of new
people to the area and provide residents with additional amenities.

Prices start from £255,000 and Help to Buy is available.

The sales suite on East Street is open daily for private viewings. Contact the team on 0117 3219 729 to book an appointment.
