The house is positioned on the impressive Sylvia Avenue, a beautiful row of substantial family homes. This row of houses was built by locally renowned ‘Chard’ architects, commissioned by Esme Smyth of Ashton Court to mark the furthest reach of their estate. The house sits on the edge of, and overlooking, one of Bristol’s favourite parks, Perrett Park, which was donated to the city by councillor C H Perrett. The park offers one of the best vantage points of the City of Bristol, a beautiful spot to watch the balloons take off from Ashton Court and often float overhead. The house is situated just a short walk along the picturesque, tree-lined Crowndale Road, from the rapidly developing Wells Road, home to several popular independent shops and eateries. The house is just minutes from the popular Fox and West Deli, Eat Your Greens, Acapella and Southside Bar, with its indoor and outdoor seating and serving local craft beers. Park Bakery, an ever-popular haunt for morning bread and breakfast goods, is just at the bottom of Sylvia Avenue, whilst in the other direction, Redcatch Park offers a fantastic community garden where you can enjoy a coffee, pizza or small bite to eat amongst a brilliantly run space for local residents. The park also offers a play area, tennis courts and football pitches and provides a real hub for this popular area. Another section of the Wells Road closest to the park gives residents a range of local shops for essentials, as well as, a newly opened café called Nook, from the owners of Fox and West. Knowle is an extremely popular family area, with a brilliant combination of large houses, good schools and a choice of great parks. Sylvia Avenue is also just a short walk away from Arnos Vale Cemetery and Victoria Park, both offering a great escape from the city and open green spaces. For commuters, the area is very well placed, with Temple Meads and the several major employers around Temple Quay just around fifteen minutes away on foot. Bristol’s scenic harbourside, Wapping Wharf and city centre are also within walking distance, along with the independent shops, bars and cafes of North Street in Bedminster.
Boasting extensive views of the Bristol city skyline and finished to an extremely high standard throughout is this spacious four bedroom family home. This imposing house perfectly balances quaint period charm and features, with grand modern spaces. One of the most impressive of the areas in the home is the expansive converted loft which measures approximately 7.6 x 4 metres including bespoke fitted wardrobes and a contemporary en-suite shower room. The fantastic view is visible from all rooms at the front of the house but especially enjoyable from the Velux Cabrio balcony window within this loft. The current owners have renovated every room of the house, finishing each room with style and an attention to detail rarely seen. Major works have also been in installing a new kitchen, boiler, lighting, flooring, the loft conversion and a new roof in their seven year tenure. Work has also been done to the electrics in 2017, cavity wall insulation to the rear and a landscaping of the rear garden, to give this house a feeling of completeness to go with it’s Edwardian charm and history.
