Embrace a green city lifestyle at Bristol’s Blackberry Hill

Rebecca and her partner were looking to sell their individual properties to buy their first home together. With Rebecca previously living in Swindon and her partner in Bristol, the couple agreed that Bristol would be the perfect place to settle as the city offers so much to see and do whilst also boasting plenty of green space.

It was the location of the development that stood out in their search for a new home. They knew they wanted a new build, and Blackberry Hill in Fishponds was unique in being within such easy reach of the city centre but far out enough to offer its residents peace, quiet and outside space. The configuration of the site also appealed to the couple, which has been done in such a way that the development feels private and secluded.

Commenting on the benefits that this urban retreat offers, Rebecca said: “We loved the amount of natural space kept on the development, with some really beautiful mature trees. We hear so many birds in the morning now, it is so lovely! We also love the fact that we can access green spaces and parks directly from the development, we don’t have to walk through the town, or get in the car. This is such a joy for us and our little dog Merlin.”

Blackberry Hill is a restoration project which brings together a bespoke collection of Grade II buildings and modern townhouses. It brings uniquely tall ceilings and large, period-style windows to its 1 & 2 bedroom apartments, whist its modern new builds offer flexible living options. Rebecca and her partner opted for a 3-bedroom, 2-storey semi-detached property and are delighted with the lifestyle that their new home affords them, boasting “wonderfully spacious” rooms.

Having started their search for a new home at the start of 2023, the couple were delighted to move into their property by the summer and were equally pleased with the support they received when going through the reservation process. Rebecca commented: “We were selling two properties to buy one and so it was a lot to deal with. However, the team at Blackberry Hill were our ultimate cheerleaders. They went above and beyond to support us, not just in terms of the technical process, but also in terms of how we were coping from a personal level. They were so supportive and thoughtful, and it really felt like they were on the journey with us. They made the natural stress of house buying so much more bearable.”

The homes at Blackberry Hill have proven incredibly popular, with just one 2-bed house and 1-bedroom apartments remaining. These properties are all ready to move into this winter, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to start the new year in a brand new home at Blackberry Hill.
