Residential Development • Horfield, Bristol

Located in a prominent position, adjacent to Horfield Common and at the end of a residential street, this original 1950's three bed detached house has been extended and converted to create four, self contained maisonettes and apartments (1 x 1 bed flat, 1 x 2 bed flat , 2 x 3 bed maisonettes).

The owners considered it was more sustainable to retain the shell of the existing building rather than demolish and rebuild on the site. Therefore the original volume of the house has been considerably enlarged in a sensitive and contemporary manner, whilst reflecting the original style of the property, to look like a pair of semi detached properties with rear extensions.

The building with the external balconies takes advantage of the panoramic views across Bristol. The high quality apartments come with shared gardens and parking facilities.

The property is built on the site of the old Horfield Castle, which was built in 1851 and was later demolished in 1950's. The development has retained the old stone walls around the former grand Victorian residence.
