Living on Cairns Road gives you the perfect balance between city buzz and quiet residential life – you’ve got the convenience of Gloucester Road’s shops and restaurants, as well as the benefit of a private and spacious garden.
Step through the front door into an expansive hallway and the front room is to your left, and the kitchen and family room straight ahead. This front room is wonderfully well-lit with a bay window and features a red-brick surrounded gas fireplace, which provides a welcome warmth during the colder months. This is a lovely space to socialise and have guests in.
Spanning the width of the house at the rear is the kitchen-diner with a large Rangemaster gas cooker and breakfast bar. White built-in units offer plenty of storage and wooden worktops allow for easy food preparation – this open-plan design makes hosting a breeze! French doors lead out of the living area into the garden where there’s a paved area for barbecues as well as a well-maintained lawn, flower beds, vegetable garden and brand new shed.
Upstairs you’ll find the bedrooms. These four large double bedrooms share a spacious family bathroom complete with a shower and bidet, and there’s potential for a loft conversion, subject to planning permission. Each bedroom has a large window letting in plenty of light and space for either a double or two single beds.
The integrated garage on the right side of the house can be accessed through the kitchen and is more than big enough for a car but could also be used as a workshop space.
In Redland you’re close to many good schools including St Bonaventure’s Catholic Primary School, Westbury Park Primary School, Henleaze Junior and Infant Schools and Redland Green School. Major employers Bristol University and the University of West England are both nearby.
You’re a few minutes’ walk from a small Waitrose, Co-op and Tesco Express, but bigger superstores are within easy reach too. The independent shops and boutiques of Clifton and Gloucester Road are close by, and you’re never far from a live music night featuring local artists and bands.
The Clifton Downs are just up the road from the property – this fabulous expanse of land is ideal for barbecues, ball games and dog walking, as well as being the site of many a festival.
Redland train station is 20 minutes away on foot and provides a rail link Temple Meads station which in turn can take you on to Bath, London and beyond.
Regular bus services run into Bristol city centre making commuting to major employers from the property straightforward. Within 40 minutes you can reach Cabot Circus shopping centre, Bristol Old Vic theatre, Park Street with its bars and restaurants and the harbourside.
