An impressive and iconic home in one of Bristol's most prestigious addresses.
This grade II listed building has been completely renovated combining the perfect blend of Georgian character with contemporary style. The upper two floors are currently configured with five double bedrooms, enhanced by two separate bathrooms and two en-suites. The bedroom layout offers flexibility and includes a grand master suite consisting of bedroom, dressing room, secret wardrobe and a large bathroom with 'his and hers' shower and sink units.
The first floor floor has two stunning principal rooms, originally intended as formal reception spaces. The front and rear reception rooms are connected by original, recessed concertina doors providing the option for an open and flowing living space. Much of the elegant period detail has been retained with large sash windows, pretty cornice, picture rail, a stripped wood floor, panelled door surrounds and two marble fireplaces. The large front window opens up on to a balcony which is the perfect place to sit and enjoy views over Christchurch Green.
On the hall floor beneath, the kitchen links to a south facing roof terrace with a bespoke Iroko wood staircase leading down to the 77ft south-facing garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of contemporary units with a quartz worktop, integrated appliances, a range cooker and a central island with a Belfast sink. Period character has been retained with a marble fireplace, ceiling cornice and a picture rail. A walk-in pantry, herringbone floor and timber glazed doors complete the room. The main entrance is at the front of this floor and leads into a versatile room which works perfectly as a study or playroom with it's own fireplace, a stripped wood floor, and a sash window with a wood panelled surround. A useful w/c is accessed off the hallway along with a walk in cloak and boot room and staircases leading to both upper and lower floors.
The ground floor level is connected internally to the main house but also has independent external access from stairs at the front of the building. The three principal rooms on this floor provide flexible living space and would suit a guest/au pair bedroom, office/gym and an art/garden room which is climate controlled and connected to the outside space via bi-fold doors. The middle room also provides access to the garden and has a flagstone floor, an original bread oven and the lower section of the original 'dumb waiter'. With its independent access, this floor would lend itself perfectly as a self contained flat or provide an easy option for multi-generational use within the building. A large cinema room with a light-well has been created in the former cellar of the property with a restored flagstone floor and an original vaulted wine store.
Few houses of this scale remain intact locally and it is particularly special to find one renovated so carefully to this high standard. The house benefits from having had a full plumbing and electrical upgrade, including a pre-wired internet in each room, facilitating whole house wifi. This exceptional property is very much a classic Georgian townhouse which has been brought right up to date.
