New Show Home Launched At Landmark Bristol Development

Posted 3 July 2023 by Helen Christie

City & Country has unveiled a new show home at its Factory No.1 development in Bedminster in Bristol…

City & Country has just unveiled an impressive new show home at its Factory No.1 development on the former Imperial Tobacco Company factory in Bedminster, Bristol.

Comprising 42 stylish homes rising to nine storeys with spectacular views over the city skyline, The Cutting Room, named after a stage in the tobacco factory process, is the tallest building constructed by WhatHouse? Award-winning developer City & Country so far. Released ahead of schedule due to demand at Factory No.1, the new build apartments are already over 69% sold. 

Paying tribute to Factory No.1’s industrial past, the show home offers an introduction to the range of individually designed new apartments with superior finishes. Designed by City & Country’s specialist team, the two-bedroom duplex show home illustrates the contemporary lifestyle available at the development.

The impressive duplex provides flexible and spacious living across two floors. The double height ceiling in the living area features an elegant crystal sphere chandelier, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the terrace flooding the space with natural light.

Beautifully finished, the open plan kitchen/dining area boasts stylish stone worktops, industrial grey wood grain finishes and integrated SMEG appliances. The large living space complements the kitchen with dark teal sofas with luxury touches throughout.

Upstairs, the spacious principal bedroom with an en-suite bathroom provides a relaxing haven away from the bustle of the city, with a velvet headboard and a palette of soft creams and tobacco browns providing a warm and cosy feel in both bedrooms. 

Clementine Hillman, interior designer at City & Country, says: “The design and specification of this new show home within The Cutting Room at Factory No.1 has been thoughtfully considered to complement the historic character of the development’s original buildings, and to reflect the industrial feel by using modern grey hues and textured materials. We had to think very carefully about how best to reflect and reference the development’s notable heritage in a new build apartment, whilst crafting a home perfect for both young professionals buying their first home and downsizers looking for a hidden oasis in the city. Starting our design process with the industrial central chandelier to make the most of the high ceilings and give the apartment a contemporary feel, we then bought in subtle grey hues and brushed brass tones to reference Factory No.1’s industrial history.”

She adds: “We always strive to stay ahead of the latest trends, and we continue to lead the market in Bristol with our high-end specification. This includes modern contemporary kitchens with stone worktops, integrated SMEG appliances and luxury bathrooms with Roca Gap sanitaryware and Vado Elements gold and black brassware to create a softened industrial look.”

Simon Vernon-Harcourt, design and planning director, for City & Country adds: “Factory No.1 continues to play a significant role in the ever-changing area of Bedminster. Once leading the way for the industrial revolution, it is now playing a role in making the area the best new place to live. As a location of a former tobacco factory, we wanted to create strong new architecture that picks up on the industrial history of the site, whilst taking considerable care in the restoration of what was already there. The new apartment buildings effortlessly blend with the old, yet add a modern twist to the architectural style, and pay homage to the past with names such as Tobacco Store and Cutting Room.”

Residents can enjoy the lawns, terraces and trees of the peaceful landscaped garden, whilst entry to the building is via secure gated entry systems with undercroft car parking also provided to selected homes. A concierge handles day-to-day needs for residents. 

The Cutting Room show home is open daily from 10am to 5pm, with Factory No.1 offering a range of one- and two-bedroom apartments. 

Prices start at £275,000 for a one-bedroom apartment in The Cutting Room, and £250,000 for a one-bedroom apartment in the converted Regent House.
