Award-winning Bristol development reveals new luxury show home

This weekend, Saturday 14th October, City & Country saw the launch of a stylish new two-bedroom show home at its award-winning Factory No.1 development in the heart of Bedminster. Recently voted as one of the most up-and-coming areas of Bristol†, this exciting development offers a range of sleek new build and classic conversion one and two-bedroom apartments, perfect for first-time buyers and existing homeowners. 

The launch comes as City & Country celebrates its recent win in the ‘Best Large Development’ category of the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards. Located on the site of the former Imperial Tobacco Company factory, the development has proven extremely popular with first time buyers, with over 60 percent of recent buyers falling into this category. 

Michael Burt, Head of Sales at City & Country said: “Following the success of Factory No.1 at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards, we have seen a surge of prospective buyers registering to visit the development for themselves. Being able to envisage yourself living within the space is paramount when purchasing your first home. We are excited to welcome everyone to the show home launch this weekend and to provide a first-hand taste of what life has to offer here in bustling Bedminster.” 

Comprising 42 stylish homes rising to nine storeys with spectacular views over the city skyline, The Cutting Room, named after a stage in the tobacco factory process, is the tallest building constructed by City & Country to date. Released ahead of schedule due to demand at Factory No. 1, the new build apartments are already over 75% sold. The 752 sq. ft. show home combines a high specification and stylish interiors, something City & Country is known for. The open-plan layout provides a seamless flow from the kitchen to dining to living area; the contemporary kitchen features the juxtaposition of white stone worktops and contrasting wood effect cabinets, with top specification integrated SMEG appliances.  

The principal bedroom, complete with an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes, is styled with a luxury upholstered headboard, a beautiful gold and rattan dressing table and chic gold accessories that represent the hallmark of sophistication. The second bedroom is equally spacious and features a contemporary piece of artwork with gold and copper tones bringing an opulent feel to the apartment.

The floor to ceiling windows in every room maximise incoming sunlight, whilst the private balcony offers further space, perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day or socialising with friends. 



Clementine Hillman, Interior Designer at City & Country, said: “When designing the new show home in The Cutting Room at Factory No.1, it was important to capture the industrial past of the former Imperial Tobacco Company through carefully selected accents, darker moody hues and neutral colour palettes. We added warmth throughout the home using dark natural woods, such as the wenge finish dining table. The bedrooms are plush, boutique spaces, crafted with comfort in mind, whilst the living space is airy and inviting. 

“This show home is the perfect mediation of the past and the present, respecting the heritage of the development, whilst creating a space that suits a variety of homebuyers’ needs.” 


Residents can relax amid the lawns, terraces and trees of the peaceful landscaped gardens, whilst entry to the development is via secure gated entry systems with undercroft car parking also provided to selected homes. A concierge is also available to handle day-to-day needs for residents. Located in a prime investment area of Bedminster, the apartments are a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads train station and the city centre. 

The Factory No.1 sales suite and show homes are open daily from 10am to 5pm, with a range of incentives available on selected one and two-bedroom apartments. Prices start at £320,000 for a one-bedroom new build apartment in The Cutting Room, and £250,000 for a one-bedroom converted apartment in Regent House.
