This four-storey beauty has the whole city at its feet, writes Sammy Milton
Located on the end of a pretty terrace in one of the most desirable areas of Cotham is this Grade-II listed property of dizzying grandeur. Aesthetically beautiful, it stands apart from the rest with a pastel pink exterior, whilst offering a trove of goodies inside.
Set over four floors, it is the ideal layout for a family. The lower ground floor encompasses the first of the reception rooms – a comfortable dining room. Flushed with natural light, this spacious area benefits from period features such as a sash window with working shutters and original parquet flooring. An ideal space for entertaining, this room in turn leads onto the intelligently planned kitchen.
This is a lovely space. Featuring a sash window that overlooks the rear garden, there is a range of wall and base units, tiled splashbacks, and plenty of space – you could incorporate a free standing cooker and still have room left over for a dining table and chairs!
A utility room with access to the rear garden and a cloakroom incorporating a WC complete this floor.
The ground floor houses the further two reception rooms. The sitting room has an attractive front elevation, and benefits further from more period details such as stripped wooden flooring, another sash window and ornate ceiling cornicing. Following on from this is a large study – ideal for working from home or it could be used as an extra reception room if so required! A useful workshop finishes this floor, complete with a workbench, sink and further access to the garden.
All four of the bedrooms can be found on the upper two levels of the house.
The master is opulent and splendid, with a window looking high out over the rooftops of the city, elegant coving and a stunning fireplace and hearth. Storage comes in the form of cupboards and a wardrobe, (further storage can be found on the landing), and the whole space has a refined, relaxing air.
The further three bedrooms are all of a good size – one could be a nursery, if so required – and have more of those period features that this home has in bucketloads. The fourth bedroom has easy access to the small loft space, and all in all, it is the ideal family layout – what more could you want?
A bathroom with a bath and wash basin and a shower room completes the property.
Externally, this home has many assets. The split-level rear garden is simply lovely, and enjoys a patio area, plants and shrubs. The front garden offers even more greenery, and there’s even a detached garage with power thrown in!
You’ve got the whole city at your feet here. Cotham stands on the pinnacle of Bristol, overlooking areas such as Stokes Croft, Gloucester Road and the city centre – a most convenient location. Clifton is just a stroll in the opposite direction, with its independent shops and boutiques or you can venture further towards Whiteladies Road to the plethora of restaurants, cafes and bars.
This is a striking property in a highly sought after location, so don’t let it pass you by!
