This semi-detached home has plenty of charm, space and versatility, writes Keri Beckingham
Set in the heart of Henleaze, this magnificent Edwardian home offers living accommodation spread over three floors.
Upon entering the property through the side door, a vestibule offers plenty of essential storage for shoes and coats, with the added character features of original green-leaded glass doors and a tiled floor. Leading through to the central hallway, you’ll find original cornicing as well as a spacious under-stairs cupboard.
To the front of the property, the first reception is currently being used as a sitting room. This bright and spacious room occupies the full width of the property and provides the perfect setting for family gatherings, with original ornate cornicing and a gas fireplace with carved wooden mantelpiece providing a charming backdrop. To the rear of the property, the open-plan kitchen/diner benefits from stripped wooden flooring, a shaker-style ‘Cotswold’ kitchen with central island, granite worktops, a five-ring dual-fuel Rangemaster and a wide range of base and wall units. The ground floor also benefits from a garden room with windows overlooking the attractive garden, as well as a handy utility room and separate WC.
There are three bedrooms located on the first floor of the home. The master bedroom has an attractive square bay window, and also benefits from built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom.
In addition, bedrooms two and three are well-proportioned doubles which benefit from garden views. The family bathroom features a ‘Matki’ shower, sink and WC. Furthermore, this floor also features an airing cupboard for additional storage.
The living accommodation has been further enhanced thanks to a loft extension, which houses two more bedrooms and a third bathroom. One bedroom is currently being used as a study, but would make a perfect fifth bedroom or playroom.
Externally, a key highlight of this freehold property is it‘s impressive south-west facing garden, providing the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the mature planted borders and fruit trees on a sunny day. Featuring a central lawn, a paved area and raised decking, there is plenty of space for alfresco dining.
There is a detached garage with fitted storage and off-street parking for two vehicles.
