Lower Sidney Street is at the far end of a quiet bank of road, positioned on the east of Southville and the north of Bedminster, very close to the Gaol Ferry bridge across the River Avon to the Wapping Wharf area. North Street in Southville is very nearby and home to a number of popular bars and eateries, such as The Tobacco factory, the popular Souk Kitchen, and The Spotted Cow, as well as highly regarded cafes such as Sweven and The Nordic Cafe. Crossing the river from Southville, you are just minutes from all Bristol City Centre has to offer. For those who work in the city, the commute by foot, bike or ferry is short and painless, whilst the journey home after an evening in a city is very straightforward and advantageous on foot rather than negotiating city centre traffic. Over the river to the left in Wapping Wharf is the high-end development ‘The General’ with Michelin star restaurants: Casamia and Paco Tapas. Beyond these is Bristol’s scenic harbourside with its boat trips and water-facing bars and restaurants. With this house being minutes from the train station and close to roads which can take you out of the city in either direction, the location of Lower Sidney Street is certainly key to its popularity.
Nestled into the heart of Southville is this stunningly unique two bedroom detached cottage. In an elevated position, you enter the lush front garden through the front gate and stairs. Through the porch you come to an entrance hall, with a living room to the left that houses beautiful cornicing, a ceiling rose and wooden flooring. To the other side of the cottage, there is a kitchen-dining room, which is the ideal blend of socialising and relaxing space with a dining room that can hold a large table and chairs, as well as having a log burning stove. The kitchen has a wrap-around solid wooden countertop and a substantial amount of cupboard space. The first floor comprises two double bedrooms, both with Victorian fireplaces, an office, as well as a bathroom with roll top bath, wooden floorboards and a large skylight. The raised garden is a suntrap, with a social patioed section, an apricot and pear tree, and a rear paved section that has access through double gates onto Greenbank Road and enough space to park a car. There is also a shed attached to the back of the home, which makes for perfect storage.
