New Show Apartment Open for Appointments – The Chocolate Factory

New Show Apartment Open for Appointments

A new show apartment has opened at the hotly-anticipated Chocolate Factory development in Greenbank, giving house hunters the opportunity to visualise what some of the refurbished buildings will look like when they are converted into apartments next year.

As the first new homes go on sale in Greenbank, anyone interested in looking around can now book an appointment to visit the fully furnished show apartment, designed by local interior specialists Main Interiors.

Styled with the site’s industrial past in mind, the two-bedroom apartment features all the high ceilings and picture windows you would expect from a former factory regeneration, echoing the townhouses that will be available later on in the scheme.

Having laid derelict for years, developers Generator South West are breathing new life into the BS5 community and once complete The Chocolate Factory will boast apartments, family houses, a public landscaped square, café/bar, community hub, retail units, workspace and direct access to the Bristol and Bath Railway Path.

Of the first seven homes to be released, only four remain so viewing soon is advised.

Mya Castillo, sales and marketing consultant for the project said: “We are delighted to open our new show apartment to the public. Visits are by appointment only under current lockdown restrictions but we’d really encourage people to take a look and get a feel for the scheme.

“The homes are light and airy and Main Interiors have done a fantastic job of capturing the style of the development and the Greenbank vibe in the design.

“We are opening a further show home in the coming weeks and the build programme is progressing well so there is plenty for visitors to come and have a look at and learn about the plans for the wider development.

“Greenbank is a great place to raise a family. It’s got a wonderful primary school, loads of green spaces, a great community and is close enough to town that you can have a car free commute to the city centre so we expect interest to be high.”

Jasmine Main, award-winning interior designer of Main Interiors, said: “The Chocolate Factory is steeped in history with its roots going back over 100 years so I wanted to play into that with the design and honour its industrial past. Some of the artwork on the walls is specially commissioned photography from around the site and shows the sweeping staircase in the old administration building that has now been renamed Elizabeth Shaw House.

“The main bedroom is just amazing, everyone who’s walked in there says ‘wow’. We wanted it to fit with the historic theme and feel really luxurious. Because the ceilings in this apartment are so high we have been able to put in a large four poster bed which really showcases the space.

“This is a really fantastic project to work on and The Chocolate Factory is an impressive development that will be great for the community and the local area. We’re now working on the second show home there and it’s going to be just as stunning as the first!”

The first three-bedroom homes are now available at The Chocolate Factory with larger 3- and 4-bedroom homes available to purchase off-plan in the next couple of months.
