This is a beautiful family home just off the popular Whiteladies Road, writes Caitlin Bowring
This handsome Georgian townhouse has accommodation spread over five floors with the addition of an extensive cellar and a well-tended garden. It’s a spacious home for a large family, with copious room for entertaining guests and a generous kitchen perfect for cooking up a storm.
Look on a map and you’ll see Burlington Road branching straight off Whiteladies Road, the house a short walk from the many corner shops, indie eateries and coffee bars dotted along the road meaning you’re never far from the bustle.
The end-of-terrace property is approached from the side of the house; walk through the front door and the kitchen is on your left, a bay-fronted reception room straight ahead. The kitchen has a range of wall and base storage units as well as a fabulous Lacanche cooking range set back into the wall. Elaborate cornicing, working shutters and a central breakfast bar with plenty of seating space make the kitchen a beautiful and homely hub.
Natural light floods the main drawing room which features a handsome black marble fireplace and decorative ceiling elements. A sizable room with ample space for your furniture, the whole family can gather round the TV and guests will love retiring here after dinner, coffees in hand.
On the first floor you’ll find two airy south- facing bedrooms with feature fireplaces and balconies overlooking the garden. A small shower room is adjacent but with a further two bathrooms and shower room elsewhere in the property, it’s hardly a compromise.
You’ll find three more large bedrooms on the second and third floors, all well-lit with a pleasant view of the garden, and a generous family bathroom – the standalone clawfoot bath is a highlight.
Enter the lower ground floor at the front of the property via double doors opening into what is currently one of two bedrooms on this level but could easily be another reception room, or via the main staircase. The stairs lead down again to to the cellar which would do excellently as a home cinema, additional lounge or guest room.
Hardwood flooring and a wealth of period features throughout the property make it a truly special home to live in. Level and sunny gardens in front of the property are a combination of lawn and mature flowering shrubbery, the patio and summerhouse making it an ideal entertaining space in the warmer months.
Clifton Down station is a mere 500 yards from the property, with the boutiques and cafes of Clifton Village a 20-minute walk away and the famous Downs a just few minutes’ walk up Whiteladies Road. You’re well-connected to main roads leading in and out of the city, such as the A4018 northwards to Westbury on Trym and the A4, Hotwell Road and Anchor Road. Redland is home to many excellent schools such as academy Redland Green School which also contains the secondary campus of Claremont Special School; Bristol Steiner School and primary schools St Bonaventure’s and Bishop Road.
