Runswick Road is situated on the south-western side of Brislington, to the east of Knowle, in between the Wells and Bath Roads which both provide access to the city through the south-easterly suburbs. The road is made up of substantial 1930s, 1950s and new build homes. The area is just a short walk to shops and amenities of Sandy Park Road, Wells Road, with Paintworks and Avonmeads Retail Park also a short journey. The popular pub, The Knowle, part of the local Zazu’s kitchen group of pubs, is just a few minutes walk away. Just a short distance from the house is the Arnos Court Park, Nightingale Valley and Eastwood Farm Nature Reserve, which provides a great area for runners and dog-walkers, for those looking for more of an escape from the city, the proximity of the nearby A37 and A4 allows ease of access to North East Somerset and Chew Valley. For commuters, this area is very well placed, just a short distance from Bristol City Centre and Bristol Temple Meads Station.
Placed on the elevated side of the road, opposite St Christopher’s Church, is this beautifully presented three-bedroom home. Through the leafy front garden, you enter the house through an original 1930s stained-glass door and its surrounding panes, which takes you into a wide hallway. The open-plan living room-dining room has stunning wooden floorboards, which is a common feature throughout the ground floor, an east-facing bayfront that floods the front room with morning light, and double doors that lead through to the dining room that has French doors opening up on a west-facing garden. The galley kitchen has a lot of work surface area, plentiful cupboard space and backsplash tiles that run alongside the walls. The first floor comprises two double bedrooms and a single bedroom that makes an ideal office, and a family bathroom. As many people have on the street, there is also the option to extend into the loft, creating an additional bedroom and bathroom, subject to design, as well as extending out backwards making an open-plan kitchen-dining room. Through the French doors, there is a stunning west-facing tiered garden surrounded by lush green trees, shrubs and bushes. There is a lawn and patioed section that leads up to a further patioed section that is an ideal social space. Up to the top of the garden, there is an ideal space for a vegetable garden, alongside the greenhouse and shed.
