Perched on the Cliftonwood slopes, this townhouse has a magnificent perspective on the city, writes James Higgins
This townhouse in Cliftonwood has been beautifully maintained by its current owners and its contemporary interiors are superbly presented.
This Victorian property enjoys a prized location on the slopes above the harbourside and there is no better home from which to enjoy the spectacles of Bristol – from the International Balloon Fiesta to New Year’s Eve fireworks – it enjoys a unique vista.
This townhouse is arranged across four levels and comprises four bedrooms, two receptions and an excellent kitchen/dining room. The ground-floor reception room has original fielded timber panelling that remains in situ and a wonderful, bright ambience. The reception on the first floor opens into a large bay window which frames a beautiful view of the harbour.
The lower ground floor is totally open-plan and this flowing floorplan lends itself well to modern family life. The fitted kitchen includes an island unit, inset ceiling spotlights and a large range cooker. A larder and a WC are handy extras to this well-appointed space. A single door opens from the dining room end of the property to the rear garden. This south-facing space is a stunning feature including not only a paved patio but also a lawn, seating area, storage and space for a barbecue.
There are four double bedrooms arranged across the first and second floors. The master bedroom is at the rear of the first floor and boasts another bay window aspect. A small family shower room sits next to the other double bedroom at the front of the first floor. Both bedrooms have built-in cupboards and original fireplaces. The staircase well to the second floor features a roof light above that floods the final ascent in sunlight. The second-floor bedrooms are in immaculate condition and boast inset spotlights, fresh decoration and double-glazing.
