Property Details

Located on popular Dongola Road in Bishopston is this distinctive and well-maintained three bedroom mid-terraced Victorian home. The property is one of eight homes on the road which have the gable facade with the pretty fish scale tiling, and retains many original period features throughout.

Accommodation on the ground floor comprises; Main entrance and porch with original Victorian tiled floor, which leads into the hallway with painted wooden floor and storage under the stairs. At the front of the house is the lead reception room with bay, original sash windows, cornice, picture rail and wood burning stove. The second reception room adjoins the living room and includes a period fireplace, cornice and a large sash window looking out onto the return of the garden.
At the end of the hall is a dining room with an original dresser and storage cupboard that leads onto the kitchen which consists of white units, tiled splash back and a tiled floor. The kitchen provides access to and overlooks the rear garden.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The third bedroom is positioned at the rear of the property includes a feature fireplace, sash windows and looks out onto the rear garden. The family bathroom next door offers a retro pampas suite with cork flooring and tiled splash backs. Bedroom number two is a spacious room in the middle of the property with yet another feature fireplace, whilst the light and bright master bedroom next door spans the full width of the building and includes stripped wooden flooring a built in wardrobe and a pleasant open aspect looking onto Seymour Avenue. The loft space is currently used for storage but offers great potential to extend and create a fourth bedroom and another bathroom.

The pretty rear garden feels bright and spacious thanks to an open aspect and is divided into paved, lawn and block paved sections with flower beds either side housing an array of flowers and mature shrubs and bushes.
