Falmouth Road, Bishopston £750,000

Stunning Victorian end of terrace house completely re-engineered to create a fabulous modern and stylish interpretation of family living in a great location just off Gloucester Road and within 200m of Bishop Road Schools and within the 2019 & 2020 catchment intake for both Redland Green and Cotham secondary schools.

Extended and extensively refurbished by the owners in the past few years the house provides comfortable contemporary living spaces whilst retaining elements of Victorian style. A thoroughly modern home wrapped up in a desirable period exterior that is ideally suited to growing families. The focal heart of the home is the desirable open plan kitchen/family living area at the rear of the house. A full width design incorporating the original rear rooms of the house and a modern extension which provides kitchen, dining and family lounge areas. With skylights, bay window to the side and bi-fold doors onto the garden, it is a lovely, bright and airy living space.

Being end of terrace the design is different from many of its surrounding neighbours. The entrance is to the side of the house with entrance lobby featuring stained and leaded glass doors opening into a hallway with returning staircase rising up through the middle of the property. A cloakroom combining utility room facilities is positioned off the hall along with a tucked away storage cupboard which provides space for buggies, coats, hoovers etc conveniently out of sight. To the front is a formal sitting room with not only an attractive bay window but additional sash window as well. Both are fitted with plantation style shutters. An attractive contemporary fireplace with inset wood burner provides a focal point to the room. To the rear and down a few steps is the open plan family space. The kitchen has a range of units incorporating double oven, dishwasher and hob. Oak flooring with underfloor heating extends throughout this lovely area.

Moving upstairs the two upper floors provide four double sized bedrooms, serviced by a family bathroom and en suite shower room to the master bedroom, both with underfloor heating. The master bedroom sits above the sitting room below, and is again full width. Imaginatively and stylishly partitioned with a walk-in wardrobe to the far end and benefitting from a bright and airy en suite shower room finished with copper effect tiles, it is a lovely part of the house. The second bedroom and family bathroom are also on this floor. The bathroom is a very good size having previously been a double bedroom; it has free standing bath and walk through door less shower with monsoon style fitting. The combination gas boiler is discreetly tucked away in a cupboard.

The upper floor benefits from a tastefully designed loft conversion with dormer windows to the side and rear providing pleasant roof top outlooks over the city. Both rooms are good sized doubles with the front/side room in particular having a lot of character, making it ideal for dual purpose guest and work from home uses.

The house has gardens to three sides all set behind fences/hedges to provide privacy. Attractively landscaped with bin & log stores to the side. The rear garden is a place to enjoy the outside and designed to be low maintenance. Composite decking sits next to the bi-fold doors from the living area providing space for lounge chairs and dining table. An area of artificial lawn completes the area.

Bishopston and the area around Gloucester Road is a thriving local community with excellent amenities available on it's cosmopolitan urban High St. Arguably one of the most desirable areas in Bristol for young families to live it is also serviced by an excellent local primary school in Bishop Road which is little more than a stones throw from the house.
