Lena Street is a quiet terraced street offering a particularly tranquil spot within this vibrant residential area of the city. Easton is renowned for its distinctive character and community spirit, and boasts a host of local amenities, attractions and community events that draw many visitors from outside the area. The area is well connected to the city centre and beyond by bike, road and train. The M32 and the A431 to Bath are both easily accessible. The area is also home to a number of Bristol's finest independent shops and eateries, hugely popular with locals and visitors alike. Situated along St Marks Road are Bristol Sweet Mart, Thali Café, East Bristol Bakery, and The Garden of Easton. Also close by are No 12 Café, The Greenbank pub, Este Kitchen, Matter Wholefoods, and Public Market. This house is a nine- minute walk away from Whitehall Primary School that is consistently rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, while May Park is similarly well-regarded local option. Also close by are Easton Leisure Centre, Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls Sports Club and the Bristol Hawks Gymnastics Club, a city-wide family activity attraction. The area offers a surprising wealth of green spaces including the Greenbank Cemetery, the parks at Eastville and St George, and riverside walks along the nearby Frome Valley, and just minutes from the house is the locally cherished Bristol to Bath Cycle Path, ideal for commuting quickly into the city centre or just for weekend strolls, long runs or bike rides.
Placed on Lena Street, nestled into this beautiful Easton community, is this stunning three-bedroom home. When looking at this double bay-fronted home, you can see the level of detail that has gone into the construction of the Victorian bayfront, and the maintenance the current vendors have undergone into its preservation. Through the reclaimed 1930s front door, you are met by a tiled porchway that leads through to wooden floorboards into the living room. Alongside the beautiful period features, such as the Victorian fireplace, cornicing and ceiling rose, the vendor has put a major emphasis on environmentally friendly upgrades, including internal wall insulation using woodfibre and lime plaster. The dining room has been opened up, removing the wall to the hallway, making a great open-plan social space that links up with the kitchen nicely. The kitchen has farmhouse floor tiles, with solid wood countertops and cabinets, as well as a utility space through the archway. To the rear of the property there is one of two bathrooms. The rear of this home has been externally insulated through the removal of non-breathable paint on the bricks and with the addition of woodfibre and render, with an Aereco demand-control ventilation system that brings fresh air in and keeps moisture in check. The first floor comprises three well-lit bedrooms, with the main bedroom housing internal wall insulation, as well as a bathroom with both a bath and wet room shower that all adhere to water-saving regulations. The garden, with a mature apple tree, is a lovely and light sanctuary, ideal for both socialising and relaxing alike.
