Properties close to the water offer a unique and desirable living experience in the city. With the scenic Avon River meandering through the heart of Bristol, there are several neighbourhoods that provide an excellent opportunity to enjoy waterfront living.

Bristol Habourside and beyond 

Harbourside, a very popular waterside area of Bristol, is home to a wide range of modern apartments and waterfront townhouses, all part of a now well established contemporary development. The residents are privy to fabulous views of the historic harbours, a vibrant social scene day and night with numerous bars and restaurants, and the added advantage of being near the city centre.

The joy of waterside living in Bristol extends beyond ‘Harbourside’ to include parts of the city centre, the fringes of Southville, Hotwells, Redcliffe, Temple Quay. And follow the river Avon to semi-rural Pill. Not to forget Portishead, renowned for its splendid, extremely popular marina and sea views.
