Situated on a quiet, neighbourly road within the heart of Montpelier is this very well-presented end of terrace Victorian home. Located over three floors, the property retains many of the original period features and offers generous proportions throughout, with two double bedrooms, two loft rooms, a downstairs w/c and a beautiful mature 90ft rear garden with a south-westerly facing aspect. The property also benefits from being offered with no onward chain.
Ground floor accommodation comprises; a vestibule entrance that leads into a central hallway with stripped wooden floor and a downstairs w/c located under the staircase. At the front of the property is the lead reception room, complete with a bay window with timber framed sashes and stained glass top-lights, picture rail, cast-iron wood burning stove and a stripped wooden floor. Next door the second reception/family room features a period fireplace with stone hearth, cornice and picture rail, and leads directly on to the open plan kitchen/diner via an open archway. The well equipped kitchen has been fitted with a range of shaker style wall and base units with solid oak work-surfaces and metro brick tiled splash-backs. A Belfast sink, some integrated appliances and an oak floor complete the overall look. A step leads up to a large open dining area with ample space for a large table. Further features include built-in storage cupboards and panel-glazed French doors that lead out on to the sunny garden.
The staircase leads up to the first floor to two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom. The impressive master bedroom is located at the front and benefits from a pleasant outlook onto neighbouring houses, whilst the en-suite shower room has a modern white suite with tiled splash-backs and a walk-in shower. Bedroom two is also a well-proportioned double and has a lovely view overlooking the rear garden. Completing the floor is a modern family bathroom that shares the same view over the garden, with a roll-top bath tub, tiled splash-backs and an oak floor. At the top of the house are two further double bedrooms, both feel light and bright thanks to large Velux windows in each and both rooms benefit from ample storage into the eaves.
Externally, the property benefits from side access to the rear garden and possesses an attractive rubble and Bath stone facade, whilst the c.65 ft southwest-facing garden is a private oasis, giving little clue to its central location within the city. With a range of blossoming flowers, mature full branched shrubs and a hazel tree providing plenty hazelnuts in the autumn months, it feels wonderfully secluded. The raised patio area off the living space is a great extension of the inside space and the path leading down through to the lower garden is framed by woven wattle fence panelling and planted borders. The lawn leads to the end of the garden, which is a perfect area for a vegetable patch or further seating area. There is also the added benefit of solar panels located on the roof that earn approximately £600 per year via the feed in tariff, This offsets 3/4 of our annual energy costs.
162 Richmond Road is a real gem of a property with a larger than average garden, a real rarity for the area. It is an excellent central location for getting into the city centre and also onto the M32. Picton Street is just a stone's throw away with boutique shops and restaurants whilst Gloucester Road is within one mile with an extensive catalogue of some of the best shops, restaurants, cafes and bars in Bristol's independent quarter.
