Property description

A fantastic opportunity to purchase a substantial piece of history placed right in the thriving city centre of the ever-popular Bristol. Christmas steps is a historic street that offers bundles of character and charm. The street was originally called Queen Street after the 1574 visit of Queen Elizabeth 1st to Bristol. It became Christmas Steps in the mid 19th century. This was probably down to simply being referred by locals due to being next door to Christmas Street, formerly known as Knyfesmyth Street, after the tradesmen there. The steep-slanted step street offers quirky independent shops, pubs and cafes while also allowing access to other key locations such as the harbour side, Corn Street and Park Street. Originally built in the 1600s the property has since been re fronted in the early 1800’s.

The property offers both a ground level commercial unit that would make a perfect shop front, café or conversion into a one bedroom apartment, with allocated outside space to attend to guests in the sun.

The commercial unit comprises an entrance lobby, large open plan space that allows access to the courtyard, dining room space, kitchen and shower room. There is a fantastic courtyard with city views to the rear, featuring a fabulous hot tub and infrared sauna, set up for outside city living. The upstairs split level property which is perfect for short term lets has an abundance of character throughout and comprises entrance lobby on the ground floor, two double bedrooms on the first floor, living space with kitchen and shower room on the second floor and a comfy hideaway retreat sitting room on the top floor.

We think this home could be perfect for anyone looking to use this property as a pied-à-terre whilst renting the shop front, someone that would look to use both for an investment prospective using the split-level property as a perfect short term let or air bnb, or a family that want the best of both worlds, living above and running a small independent business from the shop front.
