5 MINUTE WALK TO WAPPING WHARF
Wapping Wharf is a new quarter in the historical and cultural heart of Bristol where people can live, shop, eat and relax by the city’s glistening waterfront.
This new community-focused neighbourhood on Bristol’s historic harbourside will feature over 600 new homes, reflecting the urban dockside character of the area, along with a range of retail and office space.
An exciting new addition to Bristol’s thriving food, drink and shopping scene, Wapping Wharf is home to some of the city’s best independent restaurants, shops and cafes. It is also the location of CARGO, Bristol’s first retail yard made of converted shipping containers.
Wapping Wharf provides an important new connection between south Bristol and the city centre following the opening of Gaol Ferry Steps, which runs through the heart of the new neighbourhood. People can now easily walk down this pedestrianised, tree-lined route, which links Gaol Ferry Bridge to the waterfront and a new public landscaped square.
Based on land that was previously derelict, this phased project will eventually retain and restore several key listed buildings and the Old City Gaol gatehouse to enhance the City Docks conservation area. One of the most significant new schemes in the city, Wapping Wharf is one of the final pieces in the jigsaw that will complete the regeneration of Bristol’s iconic Floating Harbour.
For full details of the EPC please refer to the online legal pack.
Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
