We have the pleasure of marketing for the second time this unique and inspiring mews house set in the heart of Montpelier. This former Haystore located just off Picton Street is a prime example of how creativity and canny design can transform a small space into something special. Having been well loved by its current owner, the house has a kitchen with integrated appliances and a shower room downstairs, with a living and dining area, raised sleeping platform and feature bath upstairs.
Entering the property through an impressive solid oak door that spans the width of the property there is a spacious entrance hallway allowing for useful storage and currently being used for bikes. A log store runs along the left-hand wall, along with an area for coats and bags. Moving to the rear of the property there is a hand built kitchen with base units, a solid wood worktop, open shelving, breakfast bar, stripped wood floor and a cast iron log burner. The raised floor allows for additional storage accessed by hatch doors and a smart shower room has been tucked under the staircase.
The upper floor is an airy, open space which runs from front to back with a stripped wood floor, painted brick walls and a pitched roof with velux windows. At one end of the room is a feature stable door looking on to Wellington Lane while at the other end a window seat cleverly conceals a bath. A feature glass panel recessed in the floor looks directly down into the kitchen below. A ladder (which pivots to stow away against the wall when not in use) provides access up to a raised sleeping platform above the living space.
This property is one of Bristol's narrowest houses and really is unique. If you want to read more about the property then be sure to read our second edition 'Look Book' where it featured.
Vendor's comments -
This house is one of a kind. I've been so happy living here and am only selling because I want to move out of the city. It's like having a cabin in the woods right in the heart of the city. Although it looks small from the outside, it feels really spacious, airy and light inside. There's lots of clever storage and neat design (the best bit being the bath hidden under the windowseat upstairs). The house is on a no-through road and looks over gardens at the back so it feels really peaceful and green, but it's only 30 seconds from all the cafes, restaurants and bars on Stokes Croft. Montpelier is such a lovely area to live in and Wellington Lane has a really friendly community of neighbours. There is a great Italian grocery shop and a farm shop on Picton St (just at the end of the lane), a Tesco round the corner, and the shops of Gloucester Rd are just a 10-15 minute walk. Hope the next owner(s) will be as happy here as I have been.
