Bishopston’s Brunel House transformed by new development

Scheme to be launched to the market at July event

An exciting new development of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, duplexes and houses in the beautifully restored and converted historic Grade II listed building, Brunel House former home of City of Bristol College, is being launched to the open market.

Independent developer and regeneration specialist Acorn Property Group has begun works on the conversion of this historic building on College Road in Bishopston next to the Gloucestershire County Cricket Ground and a stone’s throw from Gloucester Road.

‘Loft House’ as the development has been named will be home to 60 apartments, duplexes and houses, featuring the conversion of Brunel House. 

Regional Managing Director of Acorn’s Bristol office Robin Squire comments, “We’re thrilled to be developing a scheme in such a prime location in Bristol. Each of these homes has been carefully and individually designed to make the best use of space and features of this wonderful building.”

Property agents Savills and Ocean Estate Agents have been jointly instructed to market the development.  The first phase of properties, featuring a stunning mix of one, two and three bedroom homes, some including mezzanine living areas, will be launched to the open market in July at The Grace Pub on Gloucester Road. 

Vicky Dudbridge, Director at Savills in Bristol comments, “As well as high quality homes, the development benefits from excellent transport links and access to the City Centre. Loft House is also under half a mile from the popular Gloucester Road area which offers an eclectic mix of independent shops, cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants.
