4, The General, Guinea Street, Redcliffe, BS1 6SD

The Property

Bristol General Hospital began life in 1832, housed in modest dwellings in Guinea Street between the Redcliffe and Bedminster Parishes. The new facilities were the initiative of a group of local Quakers who were appalled at the lack of health provision for the growing industrial poor of Bedminster and Redcliffe and in the early days only local residents were allowed access to treatment.

The building now has been converted and transformed into just 200 luxurious apartments which offers stylish converted character homes within the original listed buildings.

This particular apartment is located on the second floor and access is via a stylish and impressive communal entrance.
Once in the apartment a large welcoming hallway greets you.
The open plan living space spans the length of the apartment and provides generous amounts of kitchen, dining, sitting as well as office space whilst three period style sash windows look out over the iconic central courtyard.
The kitchen features a range of wall and base units, stainless steel sink as well as a range of integrated BOSCH appliances including electric hob and oven with extractor over, dishwasher and fridge freezer.
The master bedroom is a spacious room with fully tiled en suite shower room and the second bedroom is also a good double room with additional built in storage.

Finally, there is a tiled family bathroom complete with mains fed shower over bath, basin, WC and heated towel rail and, located off the hallway, there is a large storage / utility cupboard as well as additional storage cupboards at the back of the living space as well as in the stairwell.

Importantly, there is also a secure allocated underground parking space.


The General is located in a bustling waterfront location on the edge of the famous Bristol Floating Harbour. It is ideally located a short walk from Bristol city centre, Temple Meads Train Station, the financial districts of Temple Quay and Temple Back, and the University of Bristol.
At lower street level there are a collection of cafes, shops and restaurants including Michelin starred Casamia and Paco Tapas. Casamia is one of Bristol’s premier eating establishments and was voted 4th in The Sunday Times Top 100 UK Restaurants 2017 and has recently won the SquareMeal Best UK Restaurant of 2018. Bristol is also served by its own international airport location around eight miles from the city centre.

With a thriving restaurant and café scene, Bristol is also home to numerous independent bars and pubs, which helps to support a lively night life scene.

Bristol’s city centre streets are lined with restaurants, clubs, bars, museums, galleries as well as the floating harbour. Well known for the world class shopping on offer from established high street brands at Cabot’s Circus, the city is home to an eclectic range of boutiques and individual shops.
