Property details

'We fell in love with this house within minutes of walking through the door. For an Easton mid-terrace, we were pleasantly surprised by the light in the house. The garden was just the right size to be a beautiful, pleasant sun trap with little maintenance required and the internal layout of the house could accommodate our kitchen-central living and love of cooking, with plenty of space for bikes, books, work desks and eventually buggies and child toys.
The area also ticked all the right boxes. We could live life locally, relying on active and sustainable transport, and we’ve really taken advantage of the numerous lovely cafés, top restaurants, shops, and supermarkets that are all within 5 minutes’ walk. Seeing friends and accessing Bristol centre is easy – on foot, by bike or by train. Close to home there are many opportunities nearby for walks, bike rides or even just a picnic in the park. Our neighbours are amazing (especially during Covid) and the street has a fantastic community spirit, known locally for its great street parties.
We’ve had over a decade of enjoyment out of this house and during that time have made numerous upgrades all focused on keeping the style of the house while dramatically improving the energy efficiency, reducing carbon footprint and focusing on long-term sustainability (featuring twice on Bristol Green Doors). The choice of materials and insulation strategy were guided by environmental factors, and sensitive to the construction of the house. The result is the best of both worlds, the style, light and spaciousness of a traditional Victorian house with the warmth and comfort of a modern ecofriendly build. Leaving both the area and the house was an incredibly hard decision, but we’re proud to be leaving behind a fantastic house and an opportunity for someone else to be part of this great community.'

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.
