Located on popular Effingham Road, with an outlook onto St Andrews Park, is this impressive two double bedroom ground floor flat.
Occupying the entire ground floor of this semi-detached Victorian building the flat is spacious and retains much of its charm and original character features.
The main entrance is located at the side of the building and opens into a communal vestibule shared with the upper maisonette. From here, the ground floor flat's private front door leads into a wide central hallway.
At the front of the property is a living room with bay window. This generously proportioned room, has beautiful high ceilings with ornate period cornicing, picture rails, original fireplace and exposed floorboards. The room has a wonderfully calming feel to it set back from the road and looking onto a quiet part of St Andrews Park.
Across the hallway is a very special dining room leading onto kitchen. This room features stunning parquet wood flooring and a log burning stove with shelved alcoves to either side of the chimney breast. A large sash window onto the rear elevation floods the room with natural light.
The kitchen is located off the back of the dining room. Configured in a galley style arrangement with a breakfast bar at the end in front of the window, the kitchen is ergonomic and there are plenty of wall and base units for storage as well as ample worksurface space. There is a built in oven and gas hob and space for under counter appliances including fridge, freezer and washing machine.
The two bedrooms and bathroom are located off the flats central hallway. At the front is the master bedroom. Sharing the same view onto the park as the living room via twin sash windows. The room features period ceiling coving, picture rails and two large alcoves either side of the chimney breast which are ideal for shelves or bedroom furniture.
Across the hallway is a wonderfully light and airy second double bedroom which features a beautiful bay with five sash windows. The room is spacious and features ornate ceiling cornicing and picture rails. There is a low level cupboard which provides a useful space for storage.
The bathroom features original wood floorboards, a timber side panelled bath with shower and fully tiled surround. There is a pedestal wash basin with feature tiled wall and a low level toilet.
This attractive flat has all the charm and proportion that one would look for in a period conversion. It's positioning opposite the park makes for a calm and tranquil setting and it is well positioned for the shops, restaurants and cafes on Gloucester Road. For getting around, Montpelier train station (direct line to Temple Meads & Clifton Down) is just 0.5 miles away and M32 motorway access is within 1 mile.
Such a beautiful, sunny, peaceful flat. It will be very hard to leave here. Effingham Rd is a great spot with a lovely community and the park right over the road. Its a two minute walk to Gloucester Road bars, cafes and restaurants and yet the street is always quiet and calm. The flat has been a great place for entertaining, sitting in the dining room with a bunch of friends and the wood burner blazing away in the middle of winter is the perfect way to spend an evening.
