Property Details

Located on a quiet and peaceful road in the heart of Bishopston is this welcoming and homely end of terrace Victorian property.

With three double bedrooms, period features and off street parking this extensively refurbished house is presented beautifully throughout and has been upgraded to offer the benefits and practicality of a modern home whilst preserving the character from the era it was built.

Enter the property via the Falmouth Road entrance on the side and you will find a central hallway with an understairs storage area and an obscure glazed window onto the side elevation. To the front of the property is a spacious living room with stripped and stained wood floors and a beautiful bay window looking out onto Melbourne Road. The high ceilings are complimented by period coving and picture rails. The original cast iron fireplace has been refurbished and finished with a modern solid oak surround and slate hearth. A door leads out onto the property's frontage which can be used as an alternative means of access. The adjacent second reception room is currently used for dining. The room has a great feel with the ceiling coving, picture rails and the exposed floorboards continuing through from the living room and hallway. A large window looks out onto the rear courtyard.

At the rear of the property is the kitchen which consists of shaker wall and base units with contrasting wood effect worktops, flat metro tiled splashbacks and sealed terracotta floor tiles. The kitchen has a range of built-in appliances including fridge freezer, oven, gas hob, extractor, integrated dishwasher and space/plumbing for a washing machine.

Beyond the kitchen is a backdoor onto the rear garden (see later) and at the rearmost of the property is a smartly finished bath and shower room which is tiled floor to ceiling.Traditional fittings have been used including a roll edge bath, pull chain high cistern toilet and pedestal wash basin. There is also a shower enclosure with glass surround and a vertical heated towel radiator. Obscure glazed windows on both walls face out onto the courtyard garden.

The stairs are covered with natural seagrass and lead up to first floor level where there are three bedrooms. At the front of the property is a large double bedroom spanning the full width of the house. Twin windows provide an outlook on Melbourne Road. Features include ceiling coving, picture rails, cast iron fireplace with modern oak surround and original polished stained and sealed floorboards. In the middle of the property is a second double bedroom with an outlook down onto the rear courtyard garden. The room carries many of the same period features as the master bedroom including; ceiling coving, picture rails, and exposed floorboards. The room has a great feel and just outside of the bedroom is a large landing area with a window looking out across the surrounding Bishopston area.
Head towards the back of the house where there is a third bedroom. The room has a low window line which frames the courtyard garden below. The room is a double and a features a picture rail and stripped, polished floorboards.

Externally, the front of the property features a low brick wall with traditional style wrought iron fencing and gate. The frontage has been stone chipped leading up to the new front door with brass ironmongery. The rear of the property is a block paved courtyard garden. The space is almost completely private and receives lots of natural light and sunshine for many hours of the day. Perhaps the largest benefit of this outside space is in the form of its potential for off-street parking should the new owner desire. A large custom made gate opens off Falmouth Road to allow access to cars. There is also a drop curb in front of the gate which doubles as an additional parking space for the owner of the house.

The refurbishment of the property has included new electrical wiring system installations, consumer unit, sockets, lights and switches throughout and new gas, water and heating system installations throughout with a gas fired Worcester Bosch boiler plus full timber treatments throughout backed by a guarantee and insurance policy.

This fantastic house is ready to move into and can be offered with no onward chain. For any buyer looking for a period property but does not want the work and ongoing expense often associated with owning one then look no further. The location is excellent, close to, yet hidden away from Gloucester Road. All of the local amenities are on your doorstep including convenient access to local schools and open spaces such as St Andrew Park.





Vendors Comments:

“I am going to miss living in such a pleasant area and community and the convenience of the Gloucester Roads shops, bars and restaurants and the nearby open spaces provided by St. Andrews Park and Horfield Common.”
