A major renovation project to create stylish student homes within a Grade II listed 17th century mansion in Bristol has completed – with nearly half of the apartments already let.
Bristol-based developer Urban Creation is behind the revamp of The Manor House, which has seen careful attention paid to the preservation of the building’s original character and period features. ‘Before’ and ‘after’ images illustrate the transformation of the property, which has seen new life breathed into it.
The Manor House, a hidden gem which was built in 1691 as a family residence behind St Michael’s Hill, has been converted into 12 studio and one-bedroom student apartments, with a new building having been created on site to house a further six apartments.
Jonathan Brecknell, director and owner of Urban Creation, said: “It is fantastic that the renovation of The Manor House is now finished as this beautiful hidden gem can now be returned to its original use as a home for people to enjoy.
“What I fell in love with when I first viewed this property was its unique charm and character, its far-reaching views and its fantastic location: a secluded spot yet right on the doorstep of Bristol University and close to Bristol’s buzzing city centre. I’m glad that it won’t be long now before students get to experience all of this for themselves!”
