Stylish Show Apartment now open at Alliance House in Bristol’s BS1

June 9, 2021

Leading property developer Acorn Property Group has unveiled the first Show Home at Alliance House on Baldwin Street in the heart of Bristol. Inspired by boutique hotels and with a colour palette referencing Pantone’s 2021 colours of the year, the 1-bedroom chic apartment is ideal for a first-time buyer or young professional who wants to make the most of city life on their doorstep.

Alliance House is the transformation of the former Dunlop, Mackenzie & Co buildings into a collection of 44 studio and 1-bedroom apartments, offering the best-quality starter homes in Bristol’s city centre. Designed for modern living with first-time buyers in mind, every home is available with the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme meaning buyers can reserve with just a 5% deposit.

Embracing the building’s French Renaissance architecture, each home will have generous floor to ceiling heights and large windows letting in an abundance of natural light, with exposed brick to select apartments, alongside Acorn’s high-quality specification.

Launched last November, Alliance House is now over 50% sold off-plan ahead of completing this winter. The stylish show apartment, designed by SJP Interiors, is the first look at the lifestyle on offer, now open for prospective buyers to view in person or take a virtual tour from the comfort of their home.

Inspired by Pantone’s Colours of the Year 2021, ‘Ultimate Grey’ and ‘Illuminating’ yellow, the apartment’s bedroom has grey and yellow soft furnishings, paired with black and white framed prints and on-trend accessories including pampas grass in an antique-style vase.

The open-plan kitchen and living room has a sophisticated feature wall in the shade ‘Oratory’, a dark grey with blue hints, with a curated collection of bold prints, creating a modern gallery effect. There is a balance of textures, such as the velvet grey sofa with a knitted throw, for a fun, eclectic feel which complements the sleek fitted kitchen which is standard to every home in the collection. Elements such as soft throws and leafy houseplants have been added to create a warm, cosy aesthetic inspired by boutique hotels in Bristol and London.

Sarah Bailey of Bristol-based SJP Interiors says: “Alliance House is a wonderful apartment collection designed for modern living and it appeals to first-time buyers or young professionals from Bristol’s centre. Our design is inspired by chic, boutique hotels and Pantone’s Colours of the Year combination of pale yellow and grey for an urban finish. We wanted to show how a buyer can make their starter home look like a designer’s dream with an on-trend feature gallery wall and bold colours throughout.”

At Alliance House, every home will have wood-effect flooring, modern tiled shower rooms and fitted kitchens with integrated appliances. There will be carpet in the bedrooms of the 1-bedroom apartments, with attention to detail meaning every home will have bright, open-plan living spaces and lots of natural light. The development will also offer secure bike storage for residents, and a secure video-entry system.

Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director of Acorn’s Bristol office says: “We have been delighted with the demand for Alliance House with buyers finding their first home here with us, drawn to the central location and high-quality finish. Our new Show Apartment is the first look for prospective buyers to see the intelligent design of the apartments, which creates bright living spaces perfect for a young buyer to put their stamp on.”

Melanie Fernandes, Associate Director, Residential Development Sales at Savills says “The Show Apartment had a fantastic launch, proving popular with appointments fully booked across the opening weekend. Eligible first-time buyers can reserve with a 5% deposit and with no Stamp Duty to pay, this is a great opportunity for those looking to own their first property.

The building’s fantastic location means new residents can enjoy the Old City’s bars, restaurants and street markets, and also being within walking distance of Bristol Temple Meads train station and the minutes from the iconic Bristol Harbourside. On the ground and basement floors of Alliance House there will be commercial units for retail.

Prices at Alliance House start from £165,000 for a studio and from £190,000 for a 1-bedroom apartment. To find out more about the homes available at Alliance House, call the team at Savills on 0117 910 0360.
