Property details

"When we moved into Balmain Street, we never imagined for a moment that we would be here for 21 years! The longest either of us had lived anywhere before was less than half of that time. To me, the fact that we have stayed this long really says something about Totterdown. It is by far the friendliest city location I have ever come across. Long before pandemic lock-downs brought neighbourhoods together, this was a place where people looked out for each other, smiled and chatted in the street, brought their children up together and made enduring friendships… and we have done all of that.
The beautiful green spaces of Arnos Vale, Perrett Park and Victoria Park have made it a great place to have dogs and it’s easy to get out into Somerset and beyond for walks, country pubs and day trips. The selection of shops, cafes and bars has changed a lot over the time we’ve been here and it’s the best it’s ever been now. We have eaten countless delicious pizzas from Accapella, appreciated the convenience of a local pharmacy and the Co-Op and we’ve really loved the addition of the wholefood store & deli, Fox & West, and more recently, coffee and cocktails at Bank. To cap it all, we have rarely had to take a car into town – it’s so easy on foot, bike or bus and, as someone who is often on the last minute, I have loved the fact that I could make it down to Temple Meads Station on foot in 15 minutes."

Balmain Street is placed to the east of Totterdown and adjacent to the beautiful Arnos Vale Cemetery. This quiet street has the best of both worlds, with a fantastic array of cafes, restaurants and independent shops on Wells Road, as well as the open green spaces of South Bristol. Places on Wells Road, such as Fox & West, an independent cafe and greengrocers selling a diversity of local produce, Bank, Totterdown Canteen and Farrow’s Fish & Chips offer some of the best options in the city. Green spaces are in plentiful supply, with Arnos Vale being an idyllic Victorian garden cemetery with the cafe run by the trust at its heart, the incredible views from Perrett Park, as well as the 50 acres of Victoria Park. Totterdown offers easy access to and from the city, with Bath Road offering an easy link to Bath, the Portway taking you to the M5 and the M32 to the M4 and beyond. Temple Meads Train Station is also a short walk or cycle away, offering connections nationally. Travelling southwards, you find yourself in the Mendips, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Nestled into the Totterdown community is this beautifully presented three bedroom Victorian home with a stunning brick facade Upon entry, you are met by stunning wooden floorboards that lead you through to an open-plan living-dining room. The living space is a perfect blend of modern living with period features, including a log burning stove, dual tone painting, as well as a ceiling rose and cornicing. To the rear of the property, there is the kitchen with a polished concrete work surface to one side and open shelving, alongside varnished oak flooring. At the end of the kitchen, there is a breakfast area with a concrete wall, skylight, and French doors that open up onto a south-west facing garden that has lush green borders, including a space ideal for socialising and relaxing alike. The first floor comprises a substantial main bedroom, a second double, and also a single bedroom that can be used as an office. A common theme of this Victorian home is the addition of skylights, at the end of the kitchen, the upstairs landing, as well as the bathroom, meaning this property is flooded with light.

This period home comes with no onward chain.
