Milton Road is a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Horfield and a few minutes from Horfield Common. Bars, family pubs, and restaurants are abundant in this area. All within walking distance are the exceptional Drapers Arms micropub, the ever-popular Lazy Dog, Wellington Pub and The Gloucester Old Spot. Several highly regarded eateries are also nearby such as Tinto Lounge, Pizzarova and the award-winning Bishopston Fish Bar rated the ‘best in Bristol by far’. Many families have been drawn to the area for its highly rated schools: Bishop Road Primary, St. Bonaventure’s and Ashley Down Road. Commuting to work from here is easy by car or bus using public transport. Buses run frequently along Gloucester Road to all major areas of Bristol, the City Centre, North Bristol, Cribbs Causeway, the MOD, and Bristol Parkway Station. Sports fans have a great selection of events nearby at the Gloucestershire County Cricket Ground which hosts county and international cricket and the Memorial Stadium which is home to Bristol Rovers. Horfield Leisure Centre, Clifton Downs, and Blaise Castle Estate are regularly used by fitness enthusiasts and dog-walkers alike.
Placed in a small row of 1930s houses in a peaceful pocket of Horfield is this stunning four bedroom home. The house sits at one of the highest points in Bristol and the self-contained loft suite, added four years ago, boasts extensive views over Horfield and beyond to the Lansdown hills on the south-easterly edge of Bristol. The fantastic space in the loft has been very carefully designed to maximise the enjoyment of this view, with double doors and a Juliet balcony. This is also a practical and carefully designed additional storey, currently used as a studio flat, ideal for those looking for an additional income from short term let, but equally suited to a brilliant master bedroom within a family home. Downstairs, onto the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. To the ground floor, there is a living room to the front, overlooking a sheltered front garden, with interconnecting doors to the rear there and a spacious, shaker-style kitchen/diner which makes a fantastic hub of the house. The house is very well presented throughout, with a sophisticated Scandi-style linking much of the house. The current owners have clearly looked after this home very well, typified by the beautiful garden access from the kitchen/dining room or utility room. The garden has a south-westerly aspect and is carefully landscaped and arranged with several established plants and shrubs, a greenhouse and vegetable patch as well as lawned and decked areas to sit and enjoy the sun.
