Located in a sought-after, tranquil area just off the High Street, the Old Bakery it's one of the newest
developments already considered Thornbury's asset. A desirable, unique building that combines
lavish architectural details and the comfort of modern living.
Best of both worlds
This spacious apartment in a quiet area is only a 20 min drive from Bristol, making it an ideal locum
for a young family or a couple wanting to enjoy the city lifestyle without the price tag. One of four
apartments, the rooms of the top-floor penthouse are fitted to a high standard, and amazing
windows offer beautiful views of nature, without the hindrance of maintaining the landscape. Ample
parking nearby and lovely outdoor space are ideal for light recreation.
Luxury and convenience
The penthouse enjoys two bathrooms – a unique solution to the development – a family bathroom
and an en suite. These are finished to a high standard, with modern décor of whites and greys, and
tiles from floor to ceiling, creating refreshing, welcoming interiors. This palette is easy to work with, whatever the colour of accessories you choose. A window (in the family bathroom) adds to the
airiness of the space, cleverly positioned to allow you to enjoy the views and the natural light, yet
protecting your privacy.
Clever solutions in style
Thick oak worktops are a testament to quality and durability. The developers cleverly combine
usability and style with a Belfast sink and generous cabinet space. There is enough storage to keep
all that is needed in the country kitchen and enough worktop area to make use of all the equipment
you need in your kitchen, and to store it neatly, ready for when you want to use it.
This arrangement makes it easy to keep the clutter at bay – designed for comfort. You can easily
imagine this being a breakfast bar, and quickly transforming into a lunch area or a dinner prep space.
There is an option of putting a table in a corner or utilising the open space if you enjoy entertaining.
With a wood panel floor that is easy to maintain, large luxurious windows (note the fantastic arched
window in the dining area) providing excellent views (supported with discreet spotlights), this
kitchen/diner is ready to be enjoyed.
Located on the second floor gives you the views of the area and the amount of light in this
apartment is a feature in itself.
Light and space
The space is generous and well-proportioned, finished in coal grey and white, shades that are a
lovely backdrop should you wish to add a spot of colour, although this modern décor should satisfy
enthusiasts of minimalist solutions as well. With the penthouse on the second floor, huge windows
invite light and offer beautiful views of the surroundings. Developers chose solutions that promote
peace of mind and comfort. It is worth knowing that windows in both bedrooms have an additional
frame on the inside with Contraflam specialist fire glass frames giving a minimum of 60min fire
protection without any detrimental effects to natural light.
Linking the family bathroom at one end and kitchen/diner on the other, it offers independent access
to each of the rooms in the apartment. Furthermore, it is equipped with 3 Velux windows, which
allow additional light into the flat.
There are also French doors with a bespoke Juliette balcony to allow for those wonderful views to
the front of the building.
About the building
This is one of the area's newest developments and complements its surroundings perfectly. It is
worth noting that the façade, matching the historical buildings, is finished to a standard that
surpasses the planning requirements. The developer wanted to create a beautiful building, easy and
comfortable to live in and they succeeded.
Transfer to Freehold Ownership
The lease is 999yrs, and on selling the final flat; the Penthouse; the freehold will be transferred to
the new owners. The management company will also transfer to the new owners so the 4 owners
will have a 25% share each in the company. This is a big advantage as you do not get freehold on
flats these days.
This development gives the owners complete autonomy on all matters and allows them to set the
Service charge and empowers them to make collective decisions. There is no ground rent charge.
The lower part of the building is made from pennant stones which gives the building character in
keeping with other historic buildings in the area. There are 4 distinct arches which are made from
locally sourced Bath stone. Under the original planning conditions pennant stone arches were
sufficient but the developers decided Bath stone arches were more effective, and installed these for a
better look and feel.
Internal Fire, Sound and Insulation
The penthouse apartment at the top floor shares this unique building and the other two apartments
on the ground and the first floor. Special care has been given to comfort and privacy with as the
building is double boarded with sound and fireboards which provides sound and fire protection for
extra security and comfort. In addition, internal walls have had a parch coat for additional
soundproofing and extra layers of insulation.
Floor cement boards have been used throughout and any gaps sealed to ensure complete
soundproofing. Doors are solid wood providing additional draft proofing.
This is composed of aluminum down pipes and guttering which again demonstrates a higher quality
of material and will provide extra longevity.
If you are looking for an exquisite home of a unique design offering an excellent value, in a sought-
after location, and with excellent access to transport links; this is an option to seriously consider.
Arrange a viewing.
