Property details

"For us, the best thing about this flat is its location. First, the outside space is amazing. Our dogs have a small private courtyard garden when they need it, but the park is just a few metres away. All summer long we dine outside and gaze at the trees and the wild hillside that rises beyond our front trellis. We pick wild garlic, elderflowers, blackberries and sloe berries in the park and use them to make pesto, jam, and liqueur. Second, it’s perfect for people who like to bike both to work and for play. Most of Bristol’s amazing breweries, restaurants, bakeries, speciality cafes, and music and theatre venues are about 15 minutes away by bike. And when one of us needs to travel further for work, Temple Meads is just a short walk. Yet it’s usually very quiet here, which is very important, because we really value our sleep!

As for the living space itself, we take a lot of pleasure in all the bespoke features we’ve designed into it. We’ve tried to make everything both beautiful and efficient. It’s a great flat for a young couple to live in, and we’ll have many, many happy memories of our time here."

Hill Avenue is situated in a hugely popular part of Bristol, just on the fringe of Victoria Park and in close proximity to the city centre. The area is ideal for commuters both within Bristol and to the cities beyond through the trains at nearby Temple Meads. The local primary school, Victoria Park, is well thought of locally and along with St Mary Redcliffe has enhanced the appeal of this area and nearby Windmill Hill for young families. Within easy walking distance are gastro-pubs such as the Star and Dove, cafes such as the Sundial Kitchen, fruit and vegetable sellers such as The Banana Boat, bakeries such as Bristol Loaf, and many other shops and restaurants. Only a short bike-ride away are the music venues, theatres, cocktail bars, and other amenities of North Street in Southville, Wapping Wharf, and the City Centre. Yet this location is quiet and peaceful. For those looking for green space, there are few, if any, better places in Bristol. Victoria Park itself offers approximately 50 acres of large open space with fantastic views towards the city. There is also a child’s play area, café and a marked running route for joggers. Perrett’s Park, with its beautiful views, is only half a kilometre away.

Placed on Hill Avenue, looking out onto the expansive Victoria Park is this beautifully designed two-bedroom apartment. To the front, there is a large courtyard garden where the vendors have fully utilised the space with an Asgard bike storage, trellises and planters for greenery, and a seating area that catches the evening sun. The entrance hall is substantial with a bespoke-fit two meter copper coat rack to the left-hand side and a built-in bench with cabinets, drawers, and cubby holes beneath. with this quality of craftsmanship being replicated throughout the apartment. There is also a curtain rod over the wardrobes to create discrete storage space, a hanging rack in the kitchen ceiling, and a radiator rack opposite the pantry. The living space has been intelligently designed, with a high spec kitchen, with stone, wooden shelving and bevelled splashback tiles that line the wall. The vendors have installed seagrass carpet that stretches from the entrance hall through to the living room, which is sustainable and very easy to maintain. Built-in bespoke maple and beech Arbor Furniture has been installed throughout the flat, with a floating cabinet and wall to wall shelving in the living room, as well as a cabinet and shelf in the kitchen. The main bedroom has built-in bespoke Arbor shelves and cabinets, with a fold-away desk under the window in the second bedroom. All of the windows in this flat are double glazed sash windows, in keeping with the Victorian properties of the local area. Much of the flat has been recently repainted with ultra low-VOC Earthborn paints, which have minimal or no odour, or are natural paint, as well as being non-toxic.
