The Paintworks is a fantastic modern development situated just off Bath Road. It is a well-regarded development which was developed with as 'a genuine attempt to regenerate a mixed use district centred primarily on a sense of community and in so doing provide a model for others to build on elsewhere'. There are 331 residential dwellings within the Paintworks, but this is far from a simple residential development. According to their website there was a 'desire to place different uses side by side and to open up communal areas within the buildings. The mix of creative tenants, exhibition/event space and popular café/bar quickly defined a distinctive emerging character in Paintworks' early years.'
Within the Paintworks are popular venues such as Bocabar and Convoy Espresso, as well as an event venue, studio space and gallery of works by the renowned photographer Martin Parr.
The Paintworks also thrives from its proximity to several other popular areas of Bristol. Just a short walk up the hill are the popular independent shops, eateries of Totterdown, such as The Eating Room, Southside, The Thali Restaurant and the award-winning Farrows Fish and Chips. The area is popular for the character of the houses, the feeling of community and the abundance of local green spaces. From the flat it is a short walk to Perrett's Park, Arnos Court Park and the larger Victoria Park. Arnos Vale Victorian Cemetery and woodland are also home to Atrium Cafe and a programme of events including Pop-up cinema, theatre, tours and classes. All parks nearby very popular with local residents and combined with the tree lined streets and avenues in the area, give this location a particularly green feel. The area is ideal for commuters, in walking distance to Bristol City Centre, Temple Meads Train Station and the major areas of employment around Temple Quay. Residents of this area also benefit from being within reach of the bars and restaurants just a short walk away along the Harbourside and in the City Centre itself.

Our Seller Says…
This apartment is approaching two years old and we have really enjoyed living here. The flat feels spacious and airy, and we love all of the new fixtures and fittings! One of our highlights has been the beautiful sunset view from the full-width living room windows. We will also miss watching the ducks paddling in the river from our bed on weekend mornings!
We have found the neighbours to be brilliant - a WhatsApp group for residents of our block keeps everyone in touch, with informal social events arranged almost every week. There are great amenities close by, and a secure car parking space when we want to travel further afield. Overall, it's a great apartment and we are sure you will love it just as much as we have.
