Property details

'The Garden Flat at Sydenham Hill is the first home I purchased and is hugely special to me. When I originally viewed the property it was pretty tired looking but had an extremely warm feeling to it and I immediately knew it had everything I was looking for. What sold it for me was the large welcoming hallway and the abundance of storage, not to mention having a private entrance, which was essential for me. There didn’t seem to be any of the compromises I had come across on other flats I viewed. My partner and I spent lockdown in the flat and hugely benefitted from immediate access to both the front and rear gardens, meaning that we could chase the sun from morning to evening! With windows along three sides of the property, the flat is also flooded with natural light for large portions of the day. The location of the flat is also fantastic, being wonderfully convenient for the hustle and bustle and independent shopping on Gloucester Road, but equidistance to the leafy parks around Cotham Gardens. I was always happily surprised at just how quiet the surroundings streets are without compromising on easy access to some of the best parts of Bristol. We also made substantial improvements to the property including substantial upgrades to the central heating system along with designer vertical radiators, installing a bespoke new kitchen, luxury hard flooring (Amtico herringbone) throughout the communal areas and warm woollen carpets to the bedrooms. We also developed a utility room or pantry, with additional storage opposite the kitchen for the all the things you want to keep out the way, which is also home to an integrated freezer, the boiler and plenty more shelving. In many ways I am really sad to be letting go of this place, but as our little family continues to grow and grow, we just need that bit more space. I hope that the next owners enjoy the flat and the surrounding community as much as we did.'

Sydenham Hill is ideally situated between Cotham, Kingsdown and Redland, nestled into the quiet and peaceful community. The area has a mix of beautiful grand Gothic buildings in amongst both Georgian Bath Stone and Victorian houses. There are many tree-lined roads, with parks and green spaces, perfect on summer days, such as the green at Redland Church or the University Gardens on St Michael’s Hill. The area is highly convenient being placed in between several hugely popular parts of Bristol. To the north is Westbury Park and the green expanse of The Downs, a short walk up Redland Road. Up the road, there are a number of independent shops and cafes, Cotham Hill and beyond to the larger establishments of Whiteladies Road and Clifton. The local pubs include Kingsdown Vaults, The Greenman and the delicious Bulrush. Over to St Michael’s Hill is Beerd, a highly regarded restaurant and Highbury Vaults with real ales and great food. To the south is Bristol City Centre, around a 15/20 minute walk or a short cycle. Just a few minutes down the hill to the east is Cheltenham and Gloucester Road, running through the popular areas of St Andrews, Bishopston and down into Montpelier, lined with hugely popular bars, restaurants and shops. The area is very convenient into or out of Bristol, with Redland train station just around the corner and several bus routes running in the immediate area.

Placed in a stunning Georgian Bath stone building, is this beautifully presented two double bedroom garden apartment. There is a private entrance to this flat, which takes you through to a substantial hallway. Unlike many flats, this property is blessed with a great amount of storage, with a pantry to the right as you enter, which has a plentiful supply of shelving and storage space. The kitchen has been recently fitted, with solid wood countertops with white metro tiles that run alongside, a large amount of cupboard space and open shelving, as well as luxury Amtico herringbone that runs throughout the kitchen, hallway, and living room. The living room has an ideal amount of space for both social occasions and relaxing alike, with a service hatch that links to the kitchen. There is a cupboard with exposed pine doors, an ornamental brick fireplace, designer column radiators and a window that looks out onto the garden. There are two double bedrooms to the other side of the hallway, with the main bedroom having two built-in wardrobes, and a bathroom with floor to ceiling tiles, and Karndean flooring. There are communal gardens to the front and rear of the flat, with steps from the rear garden that lead down to off-street parking for the building.

This spacious two double bedroom apartment, with off-street parking and a private entrance, is being offered with no onward chain.
