Osborne Wallis House, Pooles Wharf, Hotwells. BRISTOL. BS8 4PQ
A generously proportioned one double bedroom second floor apartment, one of only nine, in this intriguing and historic warehouse building converted in 1998 and situated at the heart of Bristol Harbourside. Ideal for investors the property is sold with a tenant in situ until 8th June 2020 paying £770-00 PCM. The site of the original sand and coal wharf, the original building was owned by cousins William Osborne and Humpry Wallis who combined their coal shipping business in 1880 in order to supply Bristol docks and its many steam ships, as well as the city itself and later the Portishead Power Station with their fleet of coal boats (all maintained by the Charles Hill Shipyard also in Pooles Wharf). When the company closed in 1969 the building was left empty but became with the surrounding area an integral part of the Harbourside regeneration scheme. The property has been rated Band C for Council Tax and rated EPC–D.
Situated on the (Northern) Clifton side of William Jessop’s floating non-tidal harbour. Historically Hotwells was the site of a thriving C18th Spa and Pump Room as well as the Jacobs Well Theatre. It was the scene of Humphry Davey’s well documented nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) parties, drawing a guest list of names as diverse as James Watt, Robert Southey, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Thomas Wedgewood. Today Pooles Wharf and Hotwells are at the heart of the vibrant and sought after Harbourside District. This includes Millennium Square with its extensive range of bars, coffee shops and restaurants with Bristol Aquarium, M-Shed, SS Great Britain and The Arnolfini all just a short walk away. Also close by are the Central Library, Hippodrome, Bristol Cathedral and Cabot Circus. Hotwells is also within ½ mile of Clifton Village, Park Street and The Triangle and is 30 minutes’ walk of Bristol Temple Meads (Even less if you choose to use the river ferry to the city centre).
