Originally built by George Weare Braikenridge a prolific collector of antiquities and a successful Bristol merchant. The Braikenridge family used Claremont Hall as a summer residence believing in the principle that by taking the sea air one would improve their health. This early Victorian property was gothicised in 1866 and is one of the areas most credited properties of this period.
The main living room within this flat was at one time the former library complete with heraldic ceiling with numerous coats of arms of eminent Bristolian families.
The conversion of the flats took place in the early 1990's with the careful preservation of the original architectural features whilst introducing exciting modern day luxuries.
