Our Seller Says…
'I purchased the flat back in 2013 off plan and I'll be sad to see it go but unfortunately, I've relocated out of Bristol for work. What drew me to the apartment was its amazing location, being close to Gloucester Road where there is everything you need but far enough back for tranquillity. It is also conveniently close to the M32 if you want to escape the city. Surprisingly the apartment block has a community with an active Facebook page. I've met some great people live in Grace Apartments who now I call my friends due to the sociable terrace. I've had no issues with the flat at all, but for peace of mind the management company are very responsive with a user-friendly website.'
The property is rated as a high-level 'C' for energy efficiency and a 'B' for environmental impact, at its full potential at the time of the energy performance certificate in 2013. The estimated running costs are around £340 per year.
