This rather grand home offers a unique opportunity, writes Sammy Milton
If you’re looking for a home in one of Bristol’s most sought-after postcodes, then look no further than this commanding Grade II* listed property situated on none other than the Royal York Crescent. Featuring panoramic views of the city and, without a doubt, one of the most pleasing aspects, this is a very special home indeed.
This impressive maisonette occupies the top two floors of this iconic period property, standing proudly next to its equally lovely neighbours – a sight that truly makes the Bristol skyline.
The care and consideration that has gone into making this home is immediately apparent as soon as you step through the front door. It has been tastefully refurbished by the current owners throughout, and charm oozes from every brick.
Walking through the entrance hall, you are led through to the bright and spacious sitting/dining room. The triple-aspect windows afford stunning views across Bristol and allow natural light to simply flood in. Featuring high ceilings and ornate cornicing, it is clear that period details have been thoughtfully retained and it is a flexible, inviting space. There’s plenty of room for a cosy set up, and with the lush carpeting, you won’t be cold in these winter months.
This room leads swiftly onto a good-sized kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is gallery-style, and is long and well-lit. Featuring wooden flooring throughout, there are cream wall and base units offering plenty of cupboard storage, tiled walls and lots of worktop space for dinner preparations.
The master bedroom can also be found on this floor. Tastefully styled and decorated, there is a large window offering a pleasant aspect to the rear, built-in wardrobes and access to a contemporary en suite bathroom. As well as this, there is a separate shower room, meaning no rushing in the mornings!
Stairs lead up to two further double bedrooms. Of an excellent size, they both feature sweeping south-west views of the city, plenty of natural light and access to another shower room – perfect for any guests you may have to stay!
The best is saved until last. A very large roof terrace completes the accommodation, featuring far-reaching views over the rooftops of pretty Clifton village. A real suntrap, this is, without a doubt, the place to entertain guests and enjoy some al fresco dining. With decking throughout and ample space for a social dining set-up, what more could you want?
Another enviable quality about this home is the lift access throughout, meaning getting to any of the floors is a breeze, plus the added bonus of a good-sized garage at the courtyard level. This comes with a convenient up-and-over door, operated by a fob, and gives you extra storage should you need it.
The location is unbeatable. Clifton Village, with all of its pubs, restaurants and charming boutiques, is on your doorstep and you’ll never tire of the view – the ever-changing vista from the Bath Hills to the east and the Dundry Hills to the west.
A property as truly wonderful as this rarely comes to market and a considerable amount of interest is anticipated – so you’d better get in there fast. It won’t hang around for long!
