The Robinson Building is a striking old factory building which towers over south Bristol, emblazoned old lettering displaying its former purpose for paper bag production and printing. The building has iconic character and is recognisable as a local landmark. This area is popular with a range of residents for its popular shops and amenities and abundance of recognisable culture, typified by annual events such as 'Upfest' and the nearby Harbourside Festival and Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. Much of this area's popularity stems from its proximity to Bristol City Centre. The accessibility of the city centre makes this area popular with young professionals, commuters and those who look to enjoy the high-quality shops, bars and restaurants of North Street, Bristol City Centre and Harbourside, including the newly developed Wapping Wharf. For those who require frequent access out of the city, the property is also close to both Bedminster and Bristol Temple Meads train stations, a short walk to the Bristol Airport bus stop, as well as offering several routes by road to outstanding countryside and more rural attractions nearby.

Our Seller Says…
'We have absolutely loved living in the Robinson Building; there is nothing quite like waking up to a view across the whole of Bristol, or sitting out on the balcony on a sunny evening. The apartment is so close to the bars, restaurants, and shops on North Street and East Street, whilst also being within walking distance to the Harbourside and City Centre. The apartment itself is very low maintenance and a great place to own as a first time buyer.'
