As Bristol heats up as one of the country's most popular places to buy, City & Country is inviting purchasers to fall in love with the beautiful homes available at Factory No.1 this Valentine’s weekend. 

The multi award-winning heritage housebuilder is offering a 5% deposit contribution on selected plots, for those who decide to couple up with their dream home at its Factory No.1 Valentine’s Event on the 17th and 18th February. 

The event comes as new data from PropCast* shows that Bristol is home to five out of six of the “hottest” postcodes in the UK. This means that last month, at least 70 out of every 100 properties listed for sale in the city were under offer.  

The BS3 postcode, which encompasses Bedminster’s Factory No. 1, had the second largest number of houses under offer out of every 100 listed for sale. 

As well as taking advantage of the 5% deposit contribution, home seekers looking to move to this incredibly popular area of Bristol can also chat with an independent mortgage advisor. 

Fiona Harris, Mortgage Advisor at FLH Mortgage Services says: “Bristol is booming – and it's no wonder. Home to a quirky arts scene and fabulous amenities, lots of young couples want to settle near somewhere as bustling as Bedminster.  

“With City & Country’s 5% deposit contribution, it makes it easier to put together a deposit on your dream home. For first-time buyers, it can be daunting deciphering all the financial jargon, so I will be on hand during the weekend to help buyers make sense of the various mortgage types on offer and find their perfect match.” 

Bedminster has long been a trendy area to settle down, featuring an eclectic range of cafes and eateries, along with an exciting nightlife and thriving arts and culture scene all a stone’s throw from Factory No. 1. 

Natasha Callaghan, Senior Marketing Manager at City & Country says: “We see a lot of young professional couples making their first home purchase here. 

“The homes offer a perfect blend of history and modernity with all the bustle and excitement of a vibrant city on your doorstep.” 

Residents of Factory No.1 benefit from peaceful landscaped gardens as well as a balcony or terrace in many homes. As a secure, gated development, residents have access to a 12-hour concierge service to assist in day-to-day needs. Undercroft car parking is also available on selected homes. 

Just a five-minute walk from Bedminster train station and 15 minutes from Bristol’s Temple Meads station, the development is perfectly placed and fits well into Bedminster’s rich cultural setting, with North Street’s array of independent bars, shops, and restaurants just a short walk away.    

Prices at Factory No. 1 start at £250,000 for a one-bedroom conversion property. The Factory No.1 sales suite and show homes are open daily from 10am to 5pm. For more information, call 01174 535 155 or visit www.cityandcountry.co.uk.
