Hot property | Waterside views in Hotwells

BPL446 2020

This modern apartment places you right on Bristol’s historic harbour

There’s nothing quite like waking up to views of a Harbourside sunrise with the sky turning all colours of orange and purple, its perfect reflection rippling across the waves. In this apartment in Hotwells you have this sight every morning, along with the silhouettes of boats and the SS Great Britain, and the cityscape in the distance.

Recent development Capricorn Place is a modern addition to an otherwise historic quay; the waterway is still a main thoroughfare and, yes, you really can catch the ferry to work from the flat.

This flat is on the first floor – you can take the lift or the few stairs – and you enter through a positively capacious hallway. It fits in a cloak cupboard, airing cupboard and even a utility cupboard which houses the boiler, as well as plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. 

To the left are the two double bedrooms, the master with its fitted storage and en suite shower room. Both are of decent size and the windows let in plenty of light – neutral-coloured walls and carpeting is found throughout, making this an easy place to make your home straight away.

Also off the hallway is the tiled main bathroom, with its large shower, sink, WC and heated towel rail.

Onto the main living area – the lounge-dining room runs the full width of the flat and opens straight out onto the covered balcony, which is a fabulous guest overflow space in the summer months. A small table and chairs, and even some decorative foliage would fit neatly on this terrace.

Sliding French doors all along the front wall of the living area let in the sun and make the room a light and airy place to hang out. 

A separate kitchen contains all the necessities – dishwasher, oven and hob, extractor and waste disposal, as well as fitted white and surface-topped units providing all the storage and preparation space you could need. 

Outside the apartment you’ll find a communal garden and parking for guests as well as an allocated underground parking space. 

The main Anchor Road runs behind the apartment along the harbour, and offers quick access into the city centre and also out of Bristol and towards the motorways via the Portway. 

Bristol Temple Meads with its links to Bath, London, and beyond is about 30 minutes away on foot, and there are regular bus services that leave a few minutes from outside the flat, that run in and out of the city.

This property benefits from being situated within easy reach of the shops, bars, restaurants and cafes along the Harbourside and city centre. There is also easy access to the M4/M5 motorway networks and Bristol Temple Meads train station. 

Asda Bedminster superstore is 20 minutes’ walk away – half as much time by car – and will cater to all your food and homeware requirements.
