This property is on a leafy, tree-lined road in the vibrant heart of Redland near to Gloucester Road, writes James Higgins
Limerick Road is a much sought-after area for good reason. A 10-minute walk from The Arches and abundant local conveniences, this generously-sized ground floor maisonette is within walking distance of a thriving high street packed with boutiques and independent food shops. The property is also within 300 metres of the highly-regarded Redland Green School.
This home comprises some exquisite interiors with fabulous period features. It also includes a 70ft south-west facing private garden, off-street parking and a private entrance. Arranged across three levels, this maisonette comprises a reception hallway, drawing room, living room, dining room, kitchen, three double-bedrooms, reading room (with fitted bookshelves) and a bath/shower room with a wet room-style shower unit.
The lower ground floor does present the potential to create a self-contained abode which could be an outstanding Airbnb or private rental apartment. In such a desirable area, this could be a particularly lucrative modification to this already impressive property. The lower ground floor does already have private external access, but a new buyer would need to obtain the necessary planning consents.
The property has retained a number of tasteful period features. There are beautiful stripped wooden flooring, tessellated tiled flooring, ornate moulded cornicing and a period fireplace, to list a few. There is also a hardstanding parking area with vehicular access from Redland Court Road – there would be potential here, with the necessary consents, to build a garage or even a home office/studio at the rear of the garden.
A solid six-panelled wooden door with brass fittings opens to the entrance porch which has a sloping glazed roof, an opaque glazed door to the utility and a second glass door opening to the reception hallway. This grand space has lofty ceilings, period floor tiling and an ornate ceiling. Stripped, panelled pine doors lead from the hallway to the area’s main living areas.
The breath-taking drawing room is at the front of the property and has a near full-width bay window providing beautiful views and lots of natural light. Further details to discover in this room include a central period fireplace with a working fire, cast-iron surround, marble hearth and an ornate stone mantlepiece.
The second main living area is a semi open-plan living/dining room from where double doors offer views of, and access to, the 70ft by 33ft rear garden. This beautiful feature has side panels and over lights creating a beautiful framed vista and a bright ambience. A few steps lead from the dining area down to the kitchen where a large dining table could be positioned. The kitchen has engineered wood floors, fitted units, a double oven and a six-ring gas hob.
The garden provides a paved patio space that is ideal for al fresco dining and there are also some plant beds, a rockery and a timber decked area to enjoy.
