Our Seller Says…
The house was initially purchased as a happy family home and later became equally practical for an ageing couple. It is surrounded by greenery - visitors often remark that you wouldn't know you are in the city! At the same time it is within walking distance to
the shops and well connected to public transport. The garden is fantastic and has well established trees (including fruit); in the past it had a thriving vegetable plot. The neighbours are friendly but not intrusive. Many of the surrounding properties have been significantly extended
and there is certainly space to do that here.
The property currently has several recommendations to improve the energy efficiency, including improving the insulation in the roof, walls and floor and updating the central heating system. According to the Bristol City Council website, the property has 'Good' solar power potential.
