A street of new homes within a 15-minute cycle ride of the centre of Bristol have gone on sale at the latest phase of The Chocolate Factory in Greenbank, Bristol, BS5.

With just one home remaining in the first row of houses, Generator South West have now released the next phase of 3 and 4-bedroom houses with prices from £435,000.

These houses benefit from off street parking with a charging point for an electric vehicle, a rare commodity in the area. They are also the first to be built on what will be a new street for Greenbank. Carsons Road is named after one of the companies which ran the factory during its 100-year history.

The larger houses on this next phase have already proved popular with a range of buyers, including people who already live in the neighbourhood.

Mya Castillo, sales and marketing consultant to the project, commented: “We are seeing interest from people who already live in BS5 but who need more space and don’t want to leave the neighbourhood as they love living here so much but need more space.

“The four-bedroom houses with roof terraces have been particularly popular as it’s unusual to find large houses with off street parking in BS5. We are now taking reservations for these properties off-plan and are helping buyers visualise what these will be like with the new computer-generated image showing the kitchen-diner space and French doors leading out to the garden.”

In addition to the electric vehicle charging points the houses also feature bike stores with access from the rear of the property – perfect for easy access to the Bristol & Bath Railway Path and ideal for getting around the neighbourhood or cycling into Temple Meads or the City Centre.

Once complete The Chocolate Factory will create a vibrant and popular space for the whole neighbourhood, featuring not just new houses and apartments but also a shop, a café / bar, restaurant and new workspaces for local businesses, as well as the new access to the Path which will benefit both the new residents and people already living in Greenbank.

The current release is now selling off-plan with completions due in the summer. To help buyers visualise what their home could be like there is a show home available to view by appointment and a visitor centre where potential buyers can see a model of the whole site and take a virtual street tour around the completed development.

Chris Hill, of joint-selling agents CJ Hole, whose Redfield office is helping buyers sell their properties to move to the development, said: “Greenbank is a fantastic, hugely popular community with the city centre easily accessible using sustainable transport, good schools and a great community spirit. The whole development is being created in the spirit of the surrounding area and providing much-needed housing.”

The Visitor Centre and Marketing Suite is open Thursday – Monday with viewings by appointment, which can be made by calling 0117 374 6600 or email
