Home Is Where the Art Is: Crest Nicholson Unveils Paintworks

Bristol’s creative quarter is set to welcome a new generation of residents with the launch of Crest Nicholson’s Paintworks scheduled for spring 2016.  

Situated in Arnos Vale, already an enclave for the local artistic community, Paintworks is within close distance to Bristol Temple Mead station and provides an eclectic mix of one and two bedroom apartments, two, three and four bedroom houses and a number of live / work units.

The new homes, just minutes from a number of the city’s art galleries, will be designed in the hugely popular modern warehouse style, providing a contemporary urban feel, in keeping with the local bohemian vibe.

The development will launch with a show apartment, meticulously designed in a loft apartment style. This is available to view in spring this year, giving potential residents the opportunity to experience the lifestyle on offer at this unique development. It will even play host to a one-of-a-kind artwork, created exclusively for the Paintworks development by local artists, Stephen Quick and Astrid Foreman. 

Laura Osborne, Sales Executive at Paintworks, said: ”We’re incredibly excited about this new launch, Paintworks is such a unique development and we know there are lots of people who want to live in this very trendy, design-focused part of Bristol. Not only is it perfect for those looking for a home in an eclectic, bohemian neighbourhood but it’s also perfectly located for access to Temple Meads station and the city centre.”

There is only one Paintworks and this unique area of Bristol offers an eclectic mix of creative ways to spend your time. Whether you enjoy browsing art galleries and exhibitions, taking a stroll down by the river or through the beautiful Arnos Vale cemetery or popping in to one of the independent cafes and delicatessens nearby, there is so much on offer to suit all tastes.

Despite its proximity to the city centre and location at the heart of the creative quarter, with the government’s Help to Buy scheme, you could own a home of your own at this unique development for less than you think. Prices for a one bedroom apartment start at £220,000.

Paintworks is such a sought-after place to live and work that new homes are expected to sell-out fast. A selection of homes can be purchased off-plan in advance of our show home and marketing suite opening on-site in spring. For more information visit
