This iconic building is home to a very special two-bedroom apartment, writes Sammy Milton
Of all of the places to call home in Bristol, there are a few that are the most desirable. Undeniably, one of those places is the harbourside. Situated in the very heart of our beautiful, bustling city is Keg Store, a brewery that was converted into 17 unique apartments in 2001. With views overlooking the water and the stunning residential surroundings, it is perfect for those looking for a slice of city centre life.
The two double-bedroom apartment in question is located on the third floor of this iconic building. Accessed via a lift, the front door opens up into a spacious hallway that features two handy storage cupboards and leads through to the open-plan kitchen/living room on the right.
Bright and airy, this room is extremely spacious. The kitchen is located to the rear of the space, and is decked out in an attractive, modern style. The stainless-steel worktops juxtapose beautifully with the exposed brick walls, creating an ever-so-trendy industrial aesthetic, whilst ceiling spotlights ensure that the room is well lit. The floor is tiled, and there are wooden wall and base units and even a kitchen island to enjoy – providing extra space for dinner prep and entertaining. As well as this, there is a range of integrated features such as an oven, hob, extraction and fridge-freezer too.
The living area is truly lovely. With wooden flooring throughout, the exposed brick walls continue here, leading to a pretty arch fitted with glass double doors that lead out onto the balcony. This room is easily big enough to incorporate a dining table and chairs, and it makes for the perfect space to crash out after a long day or to relax and get stuck into a good film.
With far-reaching views over the pretty neighbouring streets, the balcony provides the perfect place to perch in the sun with a drink after work or to catch up with friends on a weekend.
To the far side of the apartment are the two double bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom is of a highly generous size and comes with the added benefit of a built-in wardrobe, as well as carpeting throughout and a bright window to the side. The second bedroom is slightly smaller but just as lovely, and could even be used as a home office, if desired.
The bathroom completes the interior accommodation, with a WC, hand-wash basin and a bath with shower over.
Keg Store is ideally placed to access the best that Bristol has to offer. With the floating harbor at your feet you’re spoilt for choice with a plethora of restaurants, food markets, bars and cafes all within walking distance, and it’s an easy amble to the city centre too. Temple Meads station is just around the corner, providing a wide range of rail links, and there’s lovely green spaces in the form of Castle Park and Queen Square to enjoy too.
