The first impressions of Electricity House are dramatic – beautiful architecture sensitively restored and approached via the pedestrianised entrance opposite Bristol's Cenotaph. Double doors open automatically, and the communal entrance hall has been refurbished to reveal its Art-Deco splendour.
The option of two lifts take you to the fifth floor, with 569 being the only apartment accessed from the lift-lobby. Here, double doors open to the apartment itself with the entrance hall flooded with natural light from the double height atrium style hall.
From the entrance hall, a door opens into the exquisite open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen offering a full 180-degree circumference and predominantly facing south. Like the rest of the property, this enjoys underfloor heating for warmth in the winter, and air-conditioning for comfort over the summer months. The floor is tiled beautifully to give a sharp and contemporary feel, with electric blinds providing privacy and shade.
The kitchen itself is stylishly presented, with a finish unique to the apartment; including “Opticolour” glass splash backs, grey composite stone work-surfaces and an “Insinkerator” system fitted to the one and half bowl sink and drainer unit. There is plenty of wall and floor mounted storage along with a fabulous central island and breakfast bar housing the ceramic hob and stainless-steel extractor hood above. Perfect for informal dining and entertaining - with views out over the city. Integrated appliances include a wall mounted oven and separate microwave-combi, as well as an integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher.
In addition, there is a separate utility room housing the boiler, along with further storage and space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.
From the reception space, sliding doors open out onto the stunning balcony, presenting substantial views which wrap around from east to the west, capturing the sun for most of the day.
Bedroom three is accessed from the entrance hall and enjoys a bird's eye view of Nick Walker's artwork as well as a luxury en-suite shower room. The current owners have kept this room free from wardrobes, as it could multi-purpose as a second sitting room / snug, home office or cinema room.
The atrium style staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the sixth floor and is finished with up-lights and downlights to illuminate the wood, glass and stainless-steel finish. Curved double glazed windows flood the staircase with natural light, whilst also providing views from the “sun-room” at the top of the stairs. This is a lovely space to sit, read, relax and reflect.
From either side of the sun room are the remaining two bedrooms; the master of which enjoys a bank of six fitted wardrobes and a stunning en-suite bathroom, complete with a twin ended bath, his & hers sinks and an oversize walk-in shower cubicle. A luxurious space to get set for the day ahead or unwind in the evening.
Bedroom two across the hall is a similarly generous space, with twin double wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. Both bedrooms enjoy access to substantial “eaves” storage as well as well as electrically operated periscope windows along with double height windows providing substantial views.
Outside and Parking
The apartment enjoys a fabulous wrap-around balcony with a glass surround, with plenty of space for a sun-downer and to take in the city centre views. The balcony offers a full panoramic vista, running from the east of the building across to the west and capturing much of the day's sun.
Accessed via the secured under-croft parking are two allocated car parking spaces with two further motorbike spaces complete with a ground anchor. There is also a communal bike store and bin shed.
The apartment also has access to a private storage pod offering 36 sq ft of full height storage accessed from the fifth-floor communal landing.
