Further Information

The General offers residents all the charm and striking character of a listed property coupled with light, modern interiors and cosmopolitan waterfront living. It is rare to find such a combination, but The General delivers on all counts.

When complete The General will be home to a collection of 205 one to four bedroom new and converted apartments and houses. The character-filled homes, situated in the Grade II Listed buildings of the former Bristol General Hospital will include a converted chapel, triplex apartments with glazed upper floors and a penthouse apartment located in the unique octagonal tower, with views across the city to the Somerset countryside. The reinstatement of the original roofscapes and balconies will provide many of the apartments with their own terraces.

This extensive mix of properties, all set around a restored central courtyard, many with views of the waterfront, combine to offer a wide range of homes. An exclusive and partially gated community, The General provides the perfect city centre retreat; minutes from the bustling centre, yet far enough to offer an oasis and retreat when needed.

Cars and bikes will also be catered for in secure underground car parks and designated bike shed. Additional facilities, for a stress-free lifestyle include gated access, voice activated door entry, maintained communal areas and an on-site caretaker.

At lower street level there will also be a collection of commercial properties which have been deliberately included within the masterplan to aid investment, economic growth and vitality within the immediate area.

Residents choosing The General will not only be buying a piece of history, but also a property with all the convenience and security provided by a quality city centre home.

The General juxtaposes modern interior specifications with the character of a listed building. The stylish interior finishes are in stark contrast to the Italianate Classicism of the buildings, with their combination of Bath Stone and Pennant Stone dressings, arched sash windows and stained glass roundels. This bold combination provides residents with a unique blend of old and new, rarely found in a modern development.

Where possible many of the original features have been carefully restored including:

Windows, doors and plaster mouldings
Door and window ironmongery
Existing fireplaces
Original floor coverings including parquet
