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 character homes within the original listed buildings. The General is within easy level access to Bristol Temple Meads as well as boasting an array of on site amenities including a comprehensive concierge service, members' gym, private resident's garden and Michelin star restaurant.
This stunning split level mezzanine apartment is located on the first floor and is a fine example of modern living which has been seamlessly blended into the period surroundings.
The ground floor of the apartment provides a beautiful open plan kitchen & living area with the bespoke kitchen featuring a number of stylish wall and base units as well as a range of integrated appliances including, induction hob, oven, extractor hood, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
There is also a impressive, fully tiled shower room with large, mains fed, walk in shower cubicle, inlaid mirror, basin, low level WC and heated towel rail.
The upper floor provides space for 2 good sized double bedrooms with the stunning master bedroom overlooking the living space and further benefitted by an en suite bathroom with mains fed shower over bath, basin, low level WC and heated towel rail.
The property also has the added advantage of a secure allocated parking space as well as access to the well maintained residents garden.
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.
