Be at home in the heart of Bristol

By bristol247, Friday Aug 14, 2020

If the past few months have taught us anything, it’s that time spent outdoors is one of life’s greatest pleasures, with people up and down the country embracing new ways of enjoying their local parks and green spaces, whether it’s walking, cycling or jogging. The team at Wapping Wharf Living – which is creating new homes for sale as part of phase 2 of this much-loved harbourside neighbourhood – has always appreciated the importance of outside space, and for that reason, there’s plenty on offer in this growing community.

If you’re already familiar with Wapping Wharf, you’ll know it’s brimming with an amazing array of independent restaurants, cafes, shops and other unique businesses from a barber’s to a fishmonger’s. It’s right in the beating heart of the city, with all that it has to offer, and has quickly become known as the place to go on the dockside and soak up the sunshine. Unsurprisingly, Bristol’s harbourside was recently named by the Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in the country – and Wapping Wharf even had a special mention as ‘best address’.

But that’s not all. The 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments housed within wharf-like buildings, with an industrial dockside feel, also benefit from their own eye-catching communal courtyards where residents can go to relax. The restored early 19th century, Grade II listed Gaol Gate is set to become an impressive new public entrance to Wapping Wharf and will open onto a square, flanked by the residents’ communal gardens. It will compliment the tree-lined pedestrian and cycle route through the heart of phase one of Wapping Wharf.

Many of the homes themselves also have balconies overlooking the new street scenes or internal garden courtyards, whilst terraces feature in many of the top floor apartments – the perfect spot on a summer’s evening, or indeed to admire the glittering lights of the city on a winter’s night.

Bristol's harbourside was recently named one of the best places to live in the UK – and it's no surprise given everything it has to offer! And Wapping Wharf got a special mention too…

For those who are green fingered, there’s a boutique plant shop, Bush Bristol, within Wapping Wharf, selling an array of large and small house plants and home accessories to adorn your new pad with. Fig 1, an independent homeware and gift shop also within the quarter, has plenty to help you feel at home too, from striking lamps to unusual crockery – they have you covered! And, if after a long day, all you fancy is a nice glass of red on your balcony, Corks at CARGO is the place to go. Whynot pair it with cheese from The Bristol Cheesemonger to make it extra special?
