Overlooking The Harbour

11.06.20

Providing spectacular views across Bristol Harbour towards Brunel’s SS Great Britain, the highly-anticipated penthouse collection at popular development Brandon Yard has been launched, with a virtual tour and virtual 360 degree images bringing the scheme to life for buyers while adhering to Government guidelines.

Brandon Yard is the £15 million transformation of a former Victorian gasworks into apartments and houses by development partners Galliard Homes and Acorn Property Group, with the first residents moving in last year. The penthouse collection provides three spectacular homes on the top floor of the New Retort House building, each with a wrap-around private terrace for enjoying views across the harbour.

Using specialist Matterport technology, the penthouse collection has been brought to life, with buyers able to virtually view the dressed Show Penthouse. Buyers can speak to a trained sales agent who can connect with them via video call and share screens to talk them through the tour as they would in a face-to-face viewing. Buyers can also contact the sales agents to book an in-person viewing, following new stringent COVID-19 safeguarding measures.

Brandon Yard combines new-build elements with restored Victorian features, providing 58 homes in total, of which over 90% have sold since launch. With work led by contractor Speller Metcalfe, the trio of buildings comprises Engine House, which has been converted into a pair of two-bedroom houses; Oculus House, a striking restored building with magnificent circular windows and loft-style homes; and New Retort House, a contemporary building designed to sit in harmony with the original architecture.

Each of the penthouses provides 3 bedrooms and a spacious open-plan kitchen/living area, with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the views of the harbour. The North-facing apartments look towards Brunel’s SS Great Britain, the world’s first great ocean liner, which has been carefully restored and is now a museum and Bristol’s most popular tourist attraction.

The dressed penthouse has interior design by WN Interiors, with a mixture of sleek modern furniture and individual pieces sourced locally, to embody the vibrant Bristol lifestyle.

The penthouse specification includes a gloss Leicht kitchen with integrated Bosch appliances and tonal blue tiling, with white handle-less cupboards for a sleek aesthetic. The master bedroom is dressed with a colour palette of grey, yellow and black, with access directly onto the wrap-around terrace, and a contemporary en-suite bathroom. There is underfloor heating throughout the homes, and each penthouse has allocated underground parking.

Brandon Yard is situated on the former Victorian gasworks once known as the Canon’s Marsh Gasworks. A magnificently-restored Victorian brick chimney remains on the site, an iconic reminder of the site’s rich heritage. Brandon Yard occupies the last available position on the northern section of Bristol’s Harbourside and represents the conclusion of the massive regeneration programme that has been transforming Bristol’s historic docks over the last 40 years.

Residents can also enjoy a courtyard designed by award-winning landscape artist Matthew Wigan with feature plants, lawn areas and communal furniture including benches and a large picnic table.

Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director at Acorn Property Group’s Bristol Office commented: “Brandon Yard is a wonderful scheme bringing life back to the site of the Victorian gasworks, and we have been delighted with the  sales success across the scheme. The release of the penthouse collection has been highly-anticipated, and the new virtual tour enables interested buyers to view the show penthouse and experience the lifestyle on offer.”

David Galman, Sales Director at Galliard Homes commented: “Our redevelopment of a historic Victorian gasworks into contemporary homes has proven very popular with buyers, with over 90% of the homes at Brandon Yard sold and the first residents enjoying their homes. The penthouse collection offers beautiful views across Bristol’s harbour, with floor-to-ceiling windows and wrap-around terraces.”

The penthouse collection has been released at Brandon Yard, with prices starting from £825,000.
