The first homes on the Knowle Estate were built in the 1930s. It was built as a council housing estate, although nowadays almost half of the 5,500 or so homes are privately owned. Carpenter’s Place is built on the site of a former public house and forms part of the urban regeneration of the Knowle area of Bristol. The three-storey building comprises 21 one bedroom and 3 two-bedroom apartments, as well as secure parking facilities with 17 car park spaces.

Each dwelling is fitted out with all expected modern conveniences, access to bicycle and bin storage, as well as waste recycling facilities.
