About this property

  • A smart new address
    Factory No.1 is a new and exciting residential development located at the gateway to Bedminster, formerly the first tobacco factory of W.D and H.O Wills.
    A new chapter has started, with urban homes being crafted from the former factory's historic buildings, alongside five new apartment buildings. Apartments in Consort House are ready for immediate occupation.

    Help to Buy available*
    Properties priced up to £349,000 are available with Help to Buy; the Government backed scheme which enables buyers to purchase with a 5% deposit, 20% Government loan and 75% mortgage*. Enquire today to find out more.

    *Terms and conditions apply.

    Factory No.1 is a secure gated development with CCTV covering each of the various pedestrian and vehicular entrances. There will be a concierge working specified hours, which will vary according to stage of development.

    Kitchens feature different textures and contrasting tonal finishes to create an interesting and cohesive design. Using textured bronzed sleek handles, wood and matt finishes to kitchen doors, with on trend quartz marble worktops, these kitchens ooze style and quality. All kitchens benefit from integrated SMEG appliances.

    There are two exciting yet different specifications for the bathrooms. Every apartment will feature one bathroom in a gold and charcoal black theme, with its textured towel radiators, matt black flushplates and shower trim complimented by brushed gold taps and shower fittings; creating a softened industrial feel. Additional bathrooms will feature a sleek, elegant white and grey marble theme, with chrome cross handled taps and shower fittings.

    All living areas have oak engineered flooring and bedrooms benefit from 100% wool carpets. Where fitted wardrobes are included, they are in a warm bronze mirrored finish to reflect light from the large windows, with a contrasting grey trim to compliment the wall finishes.

    Some properties within Consort and Regent House also benefit from original features including fireplaces, cornicing and plasterwork.

    There are stunning contemporary gardens created to conceal the parking areas beneath. A series of raised terraces which sit between the original and new buildings consist of fine lawns, ornamental planting, hedges and several species of trees, all of which combine to create relaxing gardens set back from the busy high street; where residents can relax and revitalise.

    There is allocated parking to many apartments, together with the provision for electric charging points. The development also encourages a safe, car-free lifestyle with both Bedminster Arcade and Lombard Street being pedestrianised and the provision of plenty of cycle spaces throughout the development.

    The Managing Agent, Warwick Estates, provides services relating to the day-to-day running of Factory No.1. Along with an on-site concierge* they will ensure that all communal areas are kept clean and tidy, the landscaping is looked after and that the building is properly maintained and insured. The friendly concierge will also accept parcels and hold keys on your behalf if you wish.

    *The concierge service will be available subject to the stage of the development.

Local information

  • Factory No.1 is located on East Street, at the gateway to Bedminster, minutes from North Street and in the heart of city life.

Additional information

  • From cigarettes to city living, Factory No.1 is a beacon of Bristol's industrial past. Its rich history makes for a compelling and interesting place to live. Located on the site of what was once a medieval hospital and then a tannery, the building is better known for being the first factory of tobacco importers and manufacturers, W.D & H.O Wills. The brothers moved their business from its premises in Redcliff Street to its first factory in Consort House (Factory No. 1) in 1886, celebrating the move with a high tea in the Cigar Room for all 900 employees. Famously both non-smokers, William Day Wills and Henry Overton Wills II were pioneers of the cigarette card used in packaging and were the first UK company to mass-produce cigarettes.
  • Their successful business launched many popular cigarette brands including Woodbine and Capstan. Towards the end of the 19th century and in response to challenges from the American Tobacco Company, W.D & H.O Wills joined forces with 12 other family-run tobacco manufacturers including John Player & Sons and Lambert & Butler. The Imperial Tobacco Company (Great Britain and Ireland) Limited was formed in 1901 (although the companies continued to trade under their own names) and Regent House became the company headquarters. Tobacco continued to be manufactured at Factory No.1 until the 1970s.
