A light, bright and elegant home with a mature south west facing garden. Located on a prime Bishopston road within the APR for both Redland Green and Bishop Road schools. The property has been carefully renovated by the current owners combining Victorian character with stylish, contemporary living.
A pathway leads up to an entrance vestibule at the side of the property with a main door into the building and a further door providing side access into the garden. The front door has a pretty stained glass window inset with glazed panels surrounding. The hallway has the original cornice retained, a walk-in storage cupboard and a painted wood floor. The original doors to the front and rear reception rooms have been cleverly retained and used as pocket doors; this enables the ground floor to be opened into a connected and social layout, or separated as required.
The front reception is a classically proportioned room with a bay with the original sashes retained with picture top lights over. The ceiling displays period detail with the original cornice and ceiling rose. A painted wood floor runs throughout while a cast iron log burner is set on a slate hearth within the chimney breast. The adjacent reception is currently used as an office/ music room and has useful built-in cabinets, shelving and a sash window facing the front aspect.
On the opposite side of the hallway is an open plan kitchen/ living room running across the rear of the house. This spacious room links to the garden with bespoke double glazed timber doors. A painted wood floor runs throughout the room and there is plenty of space for both dining and sitting. On one side, is a log burner with a slate hearth, while on the other side is the kitchen fitted with a range of charcoal coloured base units with a contrasting white Corian worktop. Wall mounted shelves and an extractor sit above with spot lighting and a central pendant over the dining table. Beyond, is a handy utility room, w/c and further access point to the garden.
In the hallway stairs lead down to a basement area which has two rooms providing useful storage. The staircase above leads up the first floor to a shower room and three bedrooms, including the master suite. At the front are two adjacent double bedrooms, both with built-in storage and one with a log burner and hiden wash hand basin. At the rear a master suite has been created with an opening linking both rooms. The bedroom area has sash windows with leafy views across Redland. The indulgent en-suite bathroom has a bath, walk-in shower, w/c and a vanity unit with a Carrera marble top which compliments the wall tiles. Beyond, is a bespoke walk-in wardrobe which includes built-in drawers and hanging space. Accessed centrally off the hallway is a smartly finished shower room, completing the first floor.
A staircase rises up to a large and impressive bedroom created in the loft space at the top of the house. The room has dual aspect windows and an ensuite shower room. The main 25'9 x 13'5 room has velux windows at one end with glazed doors and a Juliet balcony at the other. This well designed, open space has far reaching views and could also be separated into two rooms if required.
Externally, the sunny, south west facing garden at the rear is landscaped with a patio seating area, lawn and a vine covered pergola. The beds have been planted with a range of shrubs, flowers and trees creating a backdrop of greenery and colour which includes two large fig trees.
This is an impressive property and makes a perfect family home, located in the catchment of highly regarded schools while being in easy reach of all the amenities on Gloucester Road
