Description


Electricity House, Bristol
This prestigious building in the heart of Bristol City Centre is home to this stunning Penthouse duplex apartment, the biggest in the conversion. Having been restored to its Art Deco past, this impressive home has been finished to a high specification throughout. Upon entering the communal hall you are instantly impressed with a bespoke deco-style Concierge desk with lifts that serve all floors and a atrium style sky light that floods the communal areas with light. Arranged over the fifth and sixth floor of this Grade II Listed building, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the property comprises a welcoming entrance hallway with feature stairwell rising to the first floor landing, a wrap around open plan living / dining / kitchen area with floor to ceiling glass windows that overlook the city and access to the wrap around balcony that has a glass balustrade and seating areas. Enjoying a southerly facing aspect, this room is filled with sunlight all day due to it's orientation. The kitchen area has a range of integrated appliances and located just off the kitchen is a useful utility room. Completing the ground floor is a guest cloakroom and double bedroom with en suite shower room. To the first floor we find a reception landing area with curved glass window that again provides views over the city. On this level we find the master bedroom with a stunning en suite that boasts a walk-in shower with waterfall shower head and a large bath. There is also a further double bedroom with en suite shower room. Both bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes and further built-in cupboards above the lift's that serve the building. Throughout the property there is underfloor heating with individual digital thermostats and air conditioning units. Further benefits include two secure car parking spaces and a further motorbike parking space, a storage pod and a communal bike store and bin store.

Our Vendor's View
One of the features that first attracted us to look at Electricity House was the concept of living in a new Contemporary styled apartment, yet situated in an iconic Grade II Art Deco building. Our apartment has been fitted to a high standard with some bespoke features unique to our home. It has exceptionally large bedrooms and a sunny wrap round balcony at the 'bullnose' of the building, overlooking the new pedestrian area surrounding the Cenotaph.
The panoramic windows provide a spacious feel with fantastic views over the city and beyond to the Dundry Hills. Electricity House's grand entrance lobby, with concierge service, adds to a sense of luxury with some tourists mistaking it for a hotel! Having dedicated secure underground parking, for two cars and two motorbikes, we never need to worry about finding a parking space in the City Centre.
In contrast to most apartments, this penthouse has ample storage, the two large cupboards above the lift shafts are so large I have turned one of them into a sewing room so I can be creative until my heart's content! Our apartment is bigger than lots of family houses and with three en-suites there is a bathroom for everyone.
We are often tempted to eat out with so many restaurants and cocktail bars on the door step, we are also members of The Harbour Hotel, where we enjoy using the spa and gym. Living in the City Centre just couldn't be more convenient with excellent schools, shops, theatres, the cinema and the bus networks within minutes of the front door, we rarely need to use the car. My husband commutes to London from Temple Meads which is only a 15 minute walk away.
