The award-winning housebuilder has undertaken a comprehensive refurbishment of the iconic Grade II listed Portland Stone building, which was designed by renowned architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott – creator of Battersea Power Station, the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool and the quintessential red telephone box, which was recently voted as the most iconic British design by the public.
This unique redevelopment will see the striking city centre building restored to its former glory, reinstating and enhancing the building’s celebrated art deco past. Many of the original 1930s features are being resurrected in the atrium and care has been taken to complement these with stylish contemporary living spaces. Crest Nicholson has also worked with local craftsmen, including Simon Kohn, who was commissioned to design the bespoke deco-style Concierge desk, to ensure that the moment you walk through the doors, you’re immersed in the historic glamour of Electricity House.
The iconic six storey building will be home to an opulent collection of 85 luxury one and two bedroom apartments, plus a selection of stunning one, two and three bedroom duplexes and penthouses. The development will also include secure undercroft parking and all residents will benefit from the services of an in-house concierge.
The development has already received a lot of interest and with something available for all buyers – from first-time buyers and down-sizers to professionals and investors – these wow-factor homes are likely to be snapped up quickly. Those interested in purchasing are advised to register their interest now and arrange an appointment to view the two stunning show apartments.
Sandra Dixon, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson South West, said: “We’re very excited to be launching Electricity House. Our vision has been to create a development which fuses the building’s art deco heritage with high specification contemporary design, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share it with the city’s homebuyers.
“We’ve taken a great deal of care to reinstate many of the building’s original art deco features, including a spectacular entrance foyer with beautiful bespoke fittings and a wonderful staircase which all combine to create the most wonderful of welcomes, it quite literally takes your breath away.
"The apartments themselves are incredible and there’s nothing quite like them anywhere else in Bristol. They are of course finished to the highest standards and will benefit from added touches of luxury including underfloor heating. The penthouses are particularly stunning, with private terraces and fantastic views over the city.”
