This two-bedroom apartment offers period splendour and beautiful touches throughout, writes Sammy Milton
Located on a highly convenient road in Redland is this splendid, two-bedroom, hall-floor apartment. Set within a gorgeous period building with a level approach to the nearby Durdham Downs and Whiteladies Road, this property is beautiful and light, and offers a well-proportioned layout with plenty of striking original features.
Accessed from the side of this beautiful building, the front door opens into a spacious entrance hall, complete with floor-to-ceiling hardwood storage cupboards, high ceilings and doors leading off to the kitchen and reception room to the right and the bathroom and bedrooms to the left.
The reception room is located to the rear of the property. A superb space, it features high ceilings with original cornicing, a beautiful bay window with a southerly aspect that allows in lots of natural light and a striking period fireplace with a decorated stone surround. This space is carpeted throughout, and with the addition of some comfortable sofas and chairs, provides the perfect place in which to relax and unwind. This room is also linked to the kitchen/breakfast room via bi-folding doors, making it ideal for entertaining.
The contemporary kitchen/breakfast room is bright and airy, and is finished to the highest possible standard. With wooden flooring running throughout, it is full of light thanks to sash windows to the rear, and further benefits from a central cooking island and a breakfast bar. As well as this, there are integrated features such as a stainless-steel sink and drainer, a hob, an oven and a fridge-freezer, and wooden wall and base units with plenty of worktop space for food preparation.
To the other side of the apartment are the bedrooms and family bathroom. The bathroom is beautifully presented, with marble-effect tiling throughout, hand-wash basin, WC and a luxurious Jacuzzi bath with shower over.
The second bedroom is located just next door. Currently used as a study/nursery, it has a large, front-facing window, high ceilings and is neutrally decorated throughout. Although perfect as it is, it could easily accommodate a large double bed, and there is a peaceful, tranquil feel to
The master bedroom is a real work of art. With a large bay window overlooking the street outside, it’s incredibly light, and the high ceilings give the whole space an airy feel. The room is tastefully decorated, with light blue and white walls and curtains, and it further benefits from carpets running throughout and access to a decadent en suite/wet room. This is the cherry on top of the cake – and comes complete with contemporary tiling throughout, a WC and a huge walk-in shower.
Iddesleigh Road is perfectly placed to enjoy the very best that the area has to offer. The Downs, with its rolling expanse of open green spaces is a short walk away, and Whiteladies Road features top-class restaurants, bars, cafes and pubs and much more. The city centre is easily reached via car or bus, and Clifton Down train station isn’t too far, offering rail links across the city and to Temple Meads.
This is a premium apartment situated in one of Bristol’s most sought-after areas – arrange your viewing now to avoid disappointment.
