INTRODUCTION

Stylish new homes for sale in Bristol

Winner of 2015 WhatHouse? Award for Best Renovation

The General, located in BS1 a short walk from Bristol City Centre and Temple Meads Station, offers both stylish converted character homes in the original listed buildings and contemporary newly built apartments in 'The Iron Foundry' with light, modern interiors. Many of the apartments benefit from waterfacing or courtyard views, allocated parking and lift access. It is rare to find such a combination in new homes, but The General delivers on all counts. 

When complete The General will be home to a collection of 205 one to four bedroom new and converted apartments and houses. The character-filled homes, situated in the Grade II Listed buildings of the former Bristol General Hospital will include a converted chapel, triplex apartments with glazed upper floors and a penthouse apartment located in the unique octagonal tower, with views across the city to the Somerset countryside. The reinstatement of the original roofscapes and balconies will provide many of the apartments with their own terraces.

This extensive mix of properties, all set around a restored central courtyard, many with views of the waterfront, combine to offer a wide range of homes. An exclusive and partially gated community, The General provides the perfect city centre retreat; minutes from the bustling Bristol City Centre, yet far enough to offer an oasis and retreat when needed.

At lower street level there will also be a collection of commercial properties which have been deliberately included within the masterplan to aid investment, economic growth and vitality within the immediate area with Michelin starred restaurant Casamia already in occupation and a Tapas and Pizza Restaurant to follow in summer 2016.

SPECIFICATION

The General juxtaposes modern interior specifications with the character of a listed building.
