Commissioned in 1936, Elmlea is an exceptionally well-appointed six-bedroom, three bathroom detached family residence of outstanding quality. Located on a quiet sought-after road, just moments from the Downs and the highly-regarded Elmlea School, the house has a welcoming feel, and is big enough to accommodate a large family and is excellent for entertaining.
The flexible family accommodation is arranged over three floors, with a wonderful open-plan kitchen/living area that opens to the rear garden, plus a separate fitted utility room. Outside, you will find a private enclosed west-facing rear garden with lawn and decking, a generous front garden and driveway parking for several cars, as well as a garage/workshop.
The three-storey family accommodation has been sympathetically refurbished and includes modern comforts such as double glazing while not compromising the integrity of the home. The traditional reception hall is significant in proportions with oak panelling and a solid oak floor, a rising staircase and front door with leaded windows to the side.
To the rear of the property, the superb open-plan living area incorporates a kitchen area fitted to a high standard with an Omega Symphony kitchen, various integrated appliances and a breakfast seating area. This opens out to a dining area and on to a living space, all with ample light from windows, skylights and a set of large double doors that also provide access out to the attractive rear garden. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor you will find four bedrooms located off a grand landing. The master bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom as well as ample space for an array of wardrobes. The remaining three double bedrooms are well served by a family bathroom with a separate toilet.
On the second floor you will find another two bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a home office, and a shower room.
There are two reception rooms – the dining room is dual aspect with feature beamed ceiling, a bay window to the front and two further windows to the side, while the generous sitting room again features a beamed ceiling, bay window to the front, and a 1930s Minster fireplace made of Portland Stone.
The property is approached via a driveway with wrought iron gates and a generous, well-maintained garden with evergreens and some mature trees, and there is a garage/workshop to the side of the property. The attractive rear garden faces a sunny westerly direction with lawn and decking areas. The borders have been imaginatively planted and offer excellent ground cover and privacy.
This beautiful home is just a short walk from the famous Durdham Downs, as well as local shops, pubs and restaurants.
There are many schools to choose from nearby – both state and independent, primary and secondary. Nearby Elmlea is an outstanding primary school and Redmaids’ High, Badminton, Bristol Grammar, Clifton College and QEH offer excellent secondary education, as well as Bristol Free School.
You will find a choice of health and leisure clubs nearby, as well as golf courses, plus good access to Bristol’s commercial centre, and the M4 and M5 motorways are a few miles away. Mainline stations Bristol Parkway and Temple Meads are both within easy reach, while Bristol Airport offers flights to a number of European – and some long haul –destinations.
