Lilymead Avenue is a quiet tree-lined avenue of substantial and attractive period homes in the popular suburb of Knowle. The road is flanked on one end by Perretts Park, at the other, there is the rapidly developing Wells Road, home to several popular independent shops and eateries. The house is just minutes from the popular Eat your Greens, Fox and West Deli, Bank and Southside Bar, to name a few. Knowle is an extremely popular family area, with a brilliant combination of large houses, good schools and a choice of great parks. Hillcrest Primary School is just a short walk away and is very well-regarded locally. Lilymead Avenue is also just a short walk away from Arnos Vale Cemetery, Redcatch Park with its community garden and Victoria Park, both offering a great escape from the city and open green spaces. For commuters, the area is very well placed, with Temple Meads and the several major employers around Temple Quay and the city centre just around fifteen minutes away on foot. Bristol’s scenic harbourside and city centre are also within walking distance, along with the independent shops, bars and cafes of North Street in Bedminster.
A fantastic warm family home arranged over three stories which has been refurbished to a fabulous standard but also with scope for further extension if required. The house is semi-detached with a driveway at the front and side access to the rear garden. On entering there is a pretty panelled porch with an original stain glassed door welcoming you to the hallway. To the front of the house is a large reception room with bay window, log burner and a wealth of original features such as cornicing and the original fire surround. To the rear of the house is a separate kitchen and dining room, with the scope to either knock through to make one large room or to extend into the garden. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a modern shower room and up again to the top floor are two more double bedrooms with far-reaching views and a bathroom with both shower and a Japanese deep soaking tub. When renovating the current owners have considered energy efficiency and added insulation as they have progressed, including creating a warm loft space, fully insulating all top-floor rooms, underfloor insulation in the living room and noise-dampening insulation between rooms. The rear garden is a generous size with both a patio and lawn, and a wooden pergola perfect for a summer drink and a BBQ. This is a home with an exceptional balance of space and style in a fantastic and sought-after area.
