Water Lilies is the first eco-development of its kind in the UK, where residents can design a sustainable home and shape their own blossoming community in Bristol.

Nestled on the edge of a conservation area in Kingsweston, near Blaise Castle and Kings Weston House, Water Lilies has countryside on its doorstep and easy access to the city.

This green oasis is the perfect place for those who wish for a sustainable lifestyle in a comfortable, high quality eco-home that has an intimate connection to nature.

There are a range of homes including 3- to 6-bedroom houses and 1- to 2-bedroom apartments. Water Lilies offers people the opportunity to design their dream home and be part of a net-zero carbon community development.
