Since opening to the public on September 27, The General – Bristol’s newest development of luxurious apartments and houses, has witnessed impressive demand for the range of converted and new-build properties.
Much of the interest is down to the unique combination of period features, including panelling and joinery, intricate plasterwork and cornices, ironmongery and brassware, and the contemporary specification that the Grad II listed former hospital offers.
This blend of old and new is rarely found in a modern development, but its trademark of heritage properties’ developer, City & Country.
The General’s stylish interior fixture and furnishings are in stark contrast to the Italianate Classicism of the buildings.
The building combines Bath stone and pennant stone dressings, arched sash windows and stained glass roundels, while the contemporary interiors are created using a palette of neutral coloured materials, which blend perfectly with the historic features of the homes.
Properties at The General benefit from a selection of individually designed luxury kitchens, with a mixture of finishes, details include matt handle-less linear kitchens from Ballerina, Neff stainless steel appliances, integrated dishwashers and laminate or stone worktops.
Bathrooms are modern and understated, featuring soft colours and quality brands, icluding Sanitaryware by Laufen, brassware from Crosswater and shower enclosures and screens by Simpsons of Kermi.
Oak engineered brushed flooring features in most living areas, and 100 per cent wool carpets have been laid in bedrooms to offer a sumptuous finish. Most properties benefit from views of the waterside, a pretty internal courtyard and fountain, or the beautifully landscaped grounds.
Properties are for sale off-plan, with prices ranging from £265,000 for a one-bedroom apartment to £560,000 for a three-bedroom house, the first properties are schedules for completion early in 2015.
