Industrial grandeur boasts a modern heart
A JUXTAPOSITION of Victorian grandeur and modern design is drawing in home buyers to Bristol's Harbourside.
The Grade II listed Purifier House on Gas Ferry Road has been renovated, while the Boat House is an entirely new development.
Together, they contain 36 properties – one and two-bedroom apartments and three-bed duplex apartments. Launched six weeks ago, 30 per cent of the properties, built by Linden Homes, have already been sold.
Among the buyers is Jason Stroud, who lives in South Wales.

Having made the decision to acquire a base here, Jason said: "As a family, we have been travelling back and forth to Bristol over the past 15 years for days out and weekends away and took the decision to buy a second home here. It is a city we love and has everything we want in a location.
"When our friends ask us why we come to Bristol, we say it is because it has everything we need within striking distance; the shops at Cabot Circus, the charm and character of places like Clifton Village, and the appeal of the water.
"We have loved coming to the festivals and celebrations in the city, from the Balloon Fiesta to the Harbour side Festival. There's so much going on. We had been looking at property for around three years across the various schemes in the city. We had noticed the Purifier Building on our visits and said that if it should ever be developed, we would be interested in taking a look.
"So when we discovered that it was being turned into apartments, we did just that. After attending the opening evening, we reserved a one-bedroom apartment.
"We love the way that the building has been brought up to date yet retains its character; it offers the best of both worlds, traditional building and modern living."
Anna Stanbridge from Savills, who has been instructed to market the properties said: "Linden Homes has made a name for itself in the city for successfully converting industrial buildings into attractive residential property. This scheme brings together the old and the new and, as such, has wide appeal.
"With a prime waterside location we had anticipated good levels of interest and have not been disappointed. Our show home in The Purifier is beautifully appointed and shows the potential of the properties, with high ceilings and venetian style windows."
Properties at the Purifier are due to be complete in the spring with the Boat House following in the summer.
