Article image Looking for a new and bigger home in Bristol had been proving a challenge for Gary and Sarah Paramore, before they stumbled upon Crest Nicholson’s Electricity House online. “We had been searching for a while for a new home, and Crest Nicholson’s Electricity House just stood out to us compared to the other new builds in Bristol” commented Sarah Paramore.

After moving back to Bristol, having spent two years in the United States, Sarah along with her husband and their two children had outgrown their Habourside apartment. “We wanted a three-bedroom apartment with ample storage space and premium quality. The duplex penthouse at Electricity House ticked all those boxes” said Sarah. 

This duplex penthouse apartment is the “gem” of Electricity House, covering 2000 square feet, and occupying the fifth and sixth floor. It features an impressive crescent-shaped kitchen/living/dining room on the first floor, which also includes a cloakroom and separate study. Upstairs, there are three spacious bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom. 

The apartment also came with two car parking spaces under the development and pod for further storage space. “It is rare to find an apartment with so much storage space, which we loved” commented Sarah. “There are also some many unique aspects about this apartment, for example, we absolutely love the floating stair case, the floor to ceiling windows in the living room and the columns by the windows”. 

Having previously lived in the popular Harbourside area in Bristol, location was a key component in choosing Electricity House. Located in the heart of Bristol, Electricity House is within walking distance to the buzzing restaurants, pubs and shopping district, so there is never a shortage of things to do. “In the next few years Bristol is set to become a major city, there are plans to build a new stadium, high speed train links to London and not to mention the regeneration of the city centre” remarked Sarah Paramore. “The area surrounding Electricity House is set to benefit a great deal from this, so that was another deciding factor for us”. 

Having saved the best to last, Crest Nicholson have released the final set of duplex penthouse apartments at Electricity House, ideal for first time buyers or those looking to move up on the property ladder.
