Bristol Property Live - 03 March 2016
The General is a potent mixture of contemporary class and period elegance, with a stunning central location, says Larry Day
The General is a perfect mix of old and new, of vibrancy and tranquillity – you can enjoy plenty of peace and quiet, despite the central location, as well as the character-rich period building with contemporary finishing touches. It’s a no-brainer if you’re looking to live in one of the country’s most exciting sought-after cities.
There are 205 one to four-bedroom converted apartments and houses in the development – one of Bristol’s most impressive, thanks to its location in the prominent and historic General Hospital.
Although they vary in size and shape, every single one of the opportunities has been given the utmost care and attention, with designers and artisans enhancing the period elegance while adding a great deal of cutting-edge fittings and fixtures. Many boast views of the Bristol skyline or nearby countryside, while all offer the chance to be part of an exclusive community on the waters’ edge. There’s also an on-site concierge, secure parking and bike sheds.
The General boasts a fabulous location near to the harbourside. There are bars, restaurants, shops, theatres, music venues in the nearby area – though with the Michelin-starred Casamia (voted fourth best restaurant in the entire country by The Sunday Times) located within The General itself, you may not want to stray far!
There’s a large supermarket just across the bridge to the south, and Temple Meads rail station is only a short walk east. Broadmead and Cabot Circus are approximately a mile away, and Clinton’s Whiteladies Road is just a brief drive North – the very best of Bristol is virtually at your fingertips!
