The northern suburb of Henleaze is a fantastic place to live – it neighbours the popular residential areas of Westbury on Trym, Horfield, Bishopston and Redland, and has its own high street. It is an almost entirely residential inter-war development, with Edwardian and Victorian streets on its southern fringes. Green spaces can found in every direction and the bustling Gloucester Road with its restaurants, shops and bars is close by.
The subject property is a late Victorian period semi-detached family home with an impressive facade and well-kept front lawn. Following the pathway up to the house, you’ll reach the solid wooden front door with its porch and side gate providing access through to the rear garden.
At the front of the house is the elegant sitting room with huge sash windows, wood burning stove with marble surround and more than enough room for several sofas, television and coffee table.
Original period features like ornate ceiling cornices, ceiling roses and hard wood flooring are found throughout the property.
Other rooms on the ground floor include a family room with a fireplace and doors opening into the conservatory which in turn leads to the garden. The garden with its patio area and flower beds is the ideal summer dining spot, and has side access to the front garden. The garage, also found in the garden, has power, lights and plumbing for a washing machine.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a conveniently-placed breakfast room with a period display cabinet, range with slate hearth and wooden mantelpiece. The kitchen is fitted with plenty of base and wall-mounted units, as well as ample work surfaces and space for a large cooker.
Upstairs on the first and second floors are the bedrooms, some fitted with en-suites, and two shared family bathrooms.
The house is within half a mile of Elmlea Junior and Infant School, St Ursula’s Primary School and Henleaze Infant and Junior School, as well as being on the doorstep of independent schools such as Redmaids and Badminton Girls’ School.
Just three minutes’ walk from the property are the vast Durdham Downs, where many a runner and dog-walker do their laps. Along the Henleaze Road you’ll find cafes such as Coffee #1 and Cafe 96, restaurants and a Co-Op, with Waitrose a little further down the road.
Popular Italian restaurant Prego is found a short walk southwards from Henleaze Gardens, and is opposite highly-acclaimed littlefrench, which serves upmarket French cuisine cooked by Freddy Bird, who opened Clifton Lido’s restaurant and bar.
Regular bus services that pass by Henleaze Gardens provide accessible links to the city centre, making Henleaze the ideal residential area for commuters working in the centre. The motorway isn’t far away either – junction three of the M32 and junction 18 of the M5 are both within a 30-minute drive from the house.
