Colston Road is in the quiet pocket of Easton, offering a particularly tranquil spot within this vibrant residential area of the city. Easton is renowned for its distinctive character and community spirit, and boasts a host of local amenities, attractions and community events that draw many visitors from outside the area. The area is also well connected to the city centre and beyond by the bike path, road and Stapleton Train Station. The M32 and the A431 to Bath are both easily accessible.
The area is also home to a number of Bristol's finest independent shops and eateries, hugely popular with locals and visitors alike. Situated along St Marks Road are Bristol Sweet Mart, No 12 Café, Thali Café, and East Bristol Bakery. Also close by are The Greenbank pub, Este Kitchen and Matter Wholefoods.
The property is a five minute walk away from Whitehall Primary School that is consistently rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, while May Park Primary and Bannerman Road Community Academy are similarly well regarded local options. Also close by are Easton Leisure Centre, Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls Sports Club and the Bristol Hawks Gymnastics Club. The area offers a surprising wealth of green spaces including the Bristol to Bath Cycle Path, the parks at Eastville and St George, and riverside walks along the nearby Frome Valley.
Placed on Colston Road is this beautifully designed two bedroom home. Upon entry, you are met by a Victorian-tiled entrance hall that also houses a Bristol blue glass door with glory stars in each corner, and detailed plasterwork. There are two reception rooms, with the living room being bay-fronted and the dining room having restored wooden floorboards, a stunning Victorian fireplace, and it leads through to a sunroom that is currently being used as a greenhouse due to its southerly aspect. The kitchen has countertop space that lines either side and has an extended section with a large skylight, flooding the breakfast room with light. The first floor comprises two double bedrooms and a bathroom, with the main bedroom having a period fireplace, and the continuing theme of wooden floorboards. The mature garden is south-facing with rear access onto a wide walkway that links with the properties of Chelsea Park and is a great communal space where children regularly play.
