Knowle Road is to the west of Totterdown and adjacent to the beautiful Perretts Park. This quiet street has the best of both worlds, with a fantastic array of cafes, restaurants and independent shops on Wells Road, as well as the open green spaces of South Bristol. Places on Wells Road, such as Fox & West, an independent cafe and greengrocers selling a diversity of local produce, Southside Bar and Farrow’s Fish & Chips offer some of the best options in the city. Green spaces are in plentiful supply, with Arnos Vale being an idyllic Victorian garden cemetery with the Cleverchefs cafe at its heart, the incredible views of Perrett Park, as well as the 50 acres of Victoria Park. Totterdown offers easy access to and from the city, with Bath Road offering an easy link to Bath, the Portway taking you to the M5 and the M32 to the M4 and beyond. Temple Mead Train Station is also a short walk or cycle away, offering connections nationally. Traveling southwards, you find yourself in the Mendips, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Situated amongst a row of grand Victorian homes is this stunning two double bedroom garden apartment. Upon entry, you are met by a beautiful entrance room, with a large under stairs cupboard. To the right, there is a substantial bay fronted living room, with a multitude of period features including intricate cornicing and ceiling rose, Victorian fireplace, as well as nineteenth century wallpaper that has been painted. Alongside this, there are modern touches, with double-glazed sash windows, and wooden flooring. To the left of the entrance, you find yourself in a fantastic social-space, where the dining room links nicely with the recently renovated kitchen, complete with wooden work surfaces, with tiles coupling these. Just off the dining room are two double bedrooms, a bathroom with the boiler cased in a pine casing that links to a shelf for towels. Uncommon in many flats, this garden apartment comes with loft storage above the bathroom and second bedroom. Out into the private garden, the current vendors have made this a truly usable space. The tiered walkway up to the lawn offers room for a barbeque, as well as table and chairs. Up to the lawn, you are surrounded by neighbouring trees and hedgerows, with the local community taking pride in their gardens. To the back there is a garden room, with electricity, that would make the perfect office or relaxing space.
