Reputed as one of the longest crescents in Europe is the stunning Royal York Crescent. Built by James Lockier, with construction starting in 1791, this beautiful line of Georgian homes can be seen from much of the city and rises out of the city scape as you travel into the centre from the other side of the Avon. Completed in 1820 due to the financial constraints of the Hundred Days War, the row was still done in typical Georgian fashion with a front garden that can be accessed by the residents of Royal York Crescent. The raised path offers fantastic views south towards Dundry and offers a vantage point to the end of the Avon Gorge and round to Clifton Suspension Bridge. To the right is the ever-popular Clifton Village, with its highly-regarded restaurants, independent shops, bars and cafes. Whilst a short walk down the hill, the residents can benefit from the modern cityscape of Bristol Harbourside and City Centre. The crescent is in a highly convenient position for commuters with buses running frequently along the nearby A4 and many areas of employment well within walking distance, such as Hargreaves Lansdown and Lloyds Bank. For those looking to travel out of the city regularly the flat is well-positioned to access the south-west via the A370, the motorway via the Portway (A4) and Bristol Airport via the A38.
Situated on the iconic Royal York Crescent is this spacious two double bedroom Georgian flat with a two story garage, as well as front and rear courtyard gardens. You access the apartment through a private entrance, passing the garage, as well as access to the courtyard and basement to the left-hand side. The entrance allows much space for coats and shoes, with a cupboard that is great for storage. The dining room links much of the apartment, making it the ideal social space. Entering the kitchen, there are period sloping ceilings, a characteristic of these homes, and a wide galley kitchen that leads through to the rear courtyard. There are solid wood work surfaces and wooden shelving. Just off the kitchen is a substantial sitting room, measuring approximately 4 x 6.5 metres, housing almost floor to ceiling sash windows with wooden shutters, alcove shelving, and a ceiling rose. There are two beautifully light south-east facing double bedrooms, with the main room having built-in wardrobes.
Past the kitchen is a private courtyard garden that has rear access onto Oxford Place. To the front there is another courtyard that has access to the garage and basement. The garage is two stories with the ground floor having enough space for a small car or a couple of motorcycles, and the first floor offers more storage space and the potential to be converted subject to planning permission. The basement provides yet more storage and further scope for development, with plumbing and electricity already being supplied to this space.
The apartment is offered with no onward chain and gives the opportunity to purchase your own section of this historic street.
