Milner Road is a much sought-after location in Ashley Down, an area enduringly popular with young professionals, couples, and families. And it’s easy to see why: a quiet residential street with a real community feel just five minutes’ walk to vibrant Gloucester Road, with its plethora of independent shops, cafés, bars and restaurants.
Cosmopolitan Bristol City Centre is within walking distance as are the green open spaces of St Andrews Park and Horfield Common providing fabulous children’s play areas, great outdoor cafés, and leisure opportunities such as lawn bowls and tennis.
For the green-fingered wanting more space to become a little more self-sufficient, there are sprawling allotments in Ashley Down and neighbouring Horfield.
Great kerb appeal
This well-presented mid-terrace two-bedroom home has great kerb appeal, screened from the road behind a small garden edged with privet hedging and a low brick wall. The red brick frontage is typical of the area, with decorative yellow brick detailing and a bay window framed with Bath stone.
Two generous reception rooms flow seamlessly from the front to the back of the house – beautifully decorated, the rooms are filled with natural light from the triple-bay window at the front and a wide window framing the garden views at the rear.
There are beautiful period fireplaces inset with colourful decorative tiles in both the sitting and dining areas.
The kitchen is a well-organised space, fitted with copious amounts of storage and a built-in larder. Planning permission has previously been granted to extend the ground floor to provide a larger kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom, which many of the neighbouring properties have done.
The first-floor landing provides access to two generous double bedrooms, a larger than average bathroom, all with feature fireplaces, and the loft which provides further opportunities for extension.
To the rear of the home is a pretty, low-maintenance garden, mainly laid to lawn with decking and a patio at alternate ends – perfectly positioned to enjoy the longer daylight hours now that spring has sprung!
The last word from the venders: “We have truly loved our time on Milner Road. From the moment we first viewed the house, we knew we wanted to make it our home. It has such a warm and inviting feel to it, flooded by natural light in the day, and is cosy and comforting at night.
The street itself has such a strong community network and we will certainly miss the people and neighbourhood events that take place on Milner Road.”
