Property details

‘Montpelier is such a special area. It is very central (which is great as we can walk everywhere) but it also has an amazing community. It has a range of lovely local schools with lots of family and community involvement and engagement - the schools locally participate in St. Paul’s carnival which is amazing. St Werburghs is really close which has a lovely city farm, there are allotments near by. We know lots of people in the area because of it’s warm community vibe.

The neighbours are great on all sides and the local shops are amazing, from the Italian Deli and Mashriq’s great range of Caribbean and Asian produce (the best chilli sauces in the area), to the farm shop as well as great curry at the Mela and Thali, and the Oowee vegan burger shop!

We bought the house in an undeveloped state after it has been rented for a number of years. At that stage it still bore some traces of its owners, one of whom was a gardening writer and was responsible for planting the amazing banana trees in the back garden. The house had an attic room which was nowhere near building regulations and a totally empty basement. We spent ages putting in the attic rooms and bathroom as well as totally redeveloping the basement, including digging down into the foundations to lay the underfloor heating and the slate tiles, which we love. As it happens the flooring is rustic riven slate from Northumberland.’

Wellington Avenue is a fantastic position within Montpelier, just around the corner from the beautiful Picton Street and close to St Pauls, Cotham and Stokes Croft. Residents of this immediate area are within easy reach of shops, bars and cafés of Cheltenham Road and Gloucester Road, such as The Bristolian, Emmeline, Café Kino and The Crafty Egg. For commuters, the area is extremely well placed for a short walk or cycle into Bristol City Centre. Buses run frequently along the A38 and train transport is available across the city and to Bristol Temple Meads via nearby Montpelier train station. For those looking for access to green space, the flat is just a short walk from St Andrews Park and the Narroways Nature Reserve in St Werburghs, whilst getting out to the country via the nearby M32 or Temple Meads train station is also straightforward.

The house itself is arranged over three stories and benefits from around 2200 square foot of versatile space. The current owners have thoroughly and comprehensively improved the space on offer, with a number of high-quality materials used, attractive period features and complementary bespoke fittings throughout. Slate flooring, bifold doors and handmade industrial lighting to the recently converted lower ground floor give this expansive kitchen/diner a fantastic feel. This Victorian home naturally has an abundance of character and generous room proportions, typified by the striking bay-fronted living room at the front of the entrance level, with a grand fireplace surround and woodburner inset. All bedrooms are sizeable rooms, with a brilliant additional dual-aspect office space, complete with a balcony, providing the perfect work-from-home environment, large enough for a great hobby or craft room. The house has an array of carefully thought through and well-styled bathrooms, with a family bathroom on the first floor, a shower room on the second floor and two en-suite shower rooms. The house also has a relatively private rear garden for such a central location, with several access points from the hub of the house in the kitchen and dining room on the lower ground floor.
