Westcoast Properties opens North Bristol office

The Patchway branch of Westcoast Properties.

A new name has begun appearing on estate agents’ boards across the north Bristol area following the opening of a new branch of Westcoast Properties, an independent and family-run agency with its roots in North Somerset.

Based in the former office of William Haig Patey at Patchway Roundabout, the new branch is headed up by Nicholas Webber, who has over 20 years experience in the industry, including eight years at Westcoast, and has now become a director of the Patchway branch.

Aiming to replicate the success achieved in Somerset and North Somerset, where the firm has four offices, the expansion marks an exciting step forward in Westcoast’s strategic programme of branch openings.

Specialising in residential sales and lettings, the Patchway office covers a wide area that includes Patchway, Charlton Hayes, Stoke Lodge, Little Stoke, Bradley Stoke, Winterbourne, Severn Beach, Easter Compton and Pilning.

“The key reason for coming here is the volume of current and planned development across north Bristol,” explained Nicholas. “We already have the Charlton Hayes site under construction and it will eventually be followed by the redevelopment of the Filton Airfield site and several other major housing developments.”

“This is already a very busy area, with all the industry and business parks that we have. The rental market is particularly strong, thanks to the presence of major employers such as the MoD, Rolls-Royce and Royal Mail. Lots of our customers are relocating from other areas of the country, as well as from overseas. On top of that, the first time buyer market is very buoyant here.”

Estate agents looking to expand premises

Posted on Thursday 16th February 2012 at 2:23 pm by SH (Editor)

Proposed extension of Woods Estate Agents, Bradley Stoke, Bristol

The Woods estate agency in Bradley Stoke has submitted a planning application to expand its premises.

The branch, housed in the same building as Aldi (off Ferndene), would see its floorspace increased by a third – from 75sqm to 100sqm should the application get the go-ahead from planners.

The extra space will be created by adding a 4.6m wide single-storey side extension along the full length of the unit.

Ten car parking spaces at the side of the present building will be lost as a result of the expansion, reducing the total number of spaces within the domain of the retail units at the site from 100 to 90, although the applicant points out that a further 74 spaces belonging to the Bradley Stoke pub are also available.

Three new cycle parking spaces will be created at the rear of the new extension.

Most other estate agents in Bradley Stoke, with the exception of Lifestyle, have moved their offices to the new town centre since it opened in October 2008. Lifestyle, which was located at the town centre prior to its redevelopment, now has its office at Bradley Pavilions, on the other side of Patchway Brook Roundabout from Woods. Reed Rains (formerly Halifax) closed its office at Bradley Pavilions last year.
