Ready for redevelopment, this 1930s home in Henleaze has no shortage of potential, says James Higgins
This good-sized semi-detached house benefits from the generous proportions and high ceilings. Now in need of modernisation, it presents a cost-effective project that could yield a spacious, highly-desirable family home in a sought-after location.
The ground floor comprises two large reception rooms, a breakfast room, kitchen and garden room. The kitchen and breakfast room could be opened up, creating a large kitchen/family area while both receptions offer good-sized rooms for entertaining and dining.
There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, while in the converted attic space, there is a further double-bedroom. The attic could be enhanced by formally converting the space into two bedrooms and a bathroom which would not only add value, but also create a useful guest suite.
The garden has a generous but largely undeveloped rear garden. A small lawn links the patio area adjacent to the property to two large, well-stocked flower beds at the bottom of the south-west facing garden. With its sunny aspect and unshaded position, this garden could become a beautiful feature for planting and al fresco dining.
The property also benefits from a garage and parking for multiple vehicles on the driveway.
The house is sited near to the junction of Henleaze Road and Wellington Hill West where local shopping facilities are close at hand. The local primary schools have good reputations and are just a mile away.
