People Are Baffled By This New-Build Home With One Serious Design Flaw

People Are Baffled By This New-Build Home With One Serious Design Flaw

A newly constructed townhouse in Bristol has attracted widespread ridicule, thanks to a short-sighted design flaw.

While we're sure this lovely row of new-builds in Shirehampton are gorgeous on the inside, it's hard to tell for one house as it is particularly difficult to get in to.

The entrance to one of the homes has been built immediately behind the existing Station Road street sign, which is now acting as a barrier and almost completely blocking the gate.

Actually getting into the front garden would involve squeezing past the street sign (only an option if you are particularly skinny) or stepping over it entirely.

After pictures of the new builds were posted on social media, many commentator were keen to point out the fairly important design flaw.

Bristol Live is awaiting a response from the developer and from the highways authority, Bristol City Council, clarifying why the sign has not been moved.

Currently, it is not yet clear whose responsibility it would be to move the sign, nor if there are any plans to move it in future.

A Rightmove advert for the new three-bedroom homes suggests that the frontage has been finished for some months, as they were marketed in September with a similar street image.

It also shows the road sign in the same place, albeit from a distance, still clearly blocking the gate.

That end-of-terrace property in question has been listed with a 'from £365,000' price tag, with the marketing material advising that the development would be complete by spring 2021.

The homes appear to have been popular nonetheless, with several 'sold' estate agent boards now in place - including at the entrance next to the road sign.
