By The Downs and behind a modest frontage finds a spacious family home completed to the highest standards, says James Higgins
This desirable four-bedroom, mid-terrace property is enviably located by the Durdham Downs in Henleaze. Across three-floors, the space in this Victorian-era property has been fully realised and provides a home with ample accommodation for a family.
As with homes of this era, a living room occupies the front of the home, with a street-facing bay window flooding the room with light. A WC and full-height cupboard-under-the-stairs lead off from the hallway.
The kitchen/dining room measures nine metres in length and offers a versatile family space. Two sets of French doors open at the rear of the dining area to the garden and patio which – in addition to four skylight aspects above – illuminates the kitchen and polished real wood floorboards. The kitchen is of a chic design with inky high-gloss units that contrast with rustic tiling, plus the real wood work tops complement the flooring. Finally, the integral double oven, hobs, and fridge/freezer ensure this kitchen is equipped to the highest standards.
The garden is not only level but south-facing and secluded – while presently low maintenance, it would offer an abundance of opportunity for a green-fingered owner.
Upstairs and to the rear, a single bedroom sits beside the family bathroom which benefits from a bath tub and separate drench style shower unit. Returning to the crook of the dog-legged staircase and continuing to the front of the property locates two double bedrooms. Both enjoy fireplaces which imbue period charm throughout. The front-facing of the two rooms spans the width of the property and gives an impressive 24m² of bedroom space.
Climbing the second flight of stairs finds a converted attic space that now provides a fourth bedroom which benefits from an en suite. The room enjoys multiple aspects, and plentiful storage. With space aplenty in its present arrangement for a double bed and office furniture – not to mention the full-height ceilings – it is generously proportioned room.
On the doorstep of Bristol’s most picturesque area and in close proximity to Whiteladies Road and excellent schools, this is an unbeatable family home!
