Property details

"This house has the best of both worlds and I’ve loved living here: it has the vibe of a country cottage, but one that a stone’s throw from Bristol’s southside. I can wake up to the sound of birdsong outside my bedroom window, head out on the Festival Way cycle path past grazing cows, and be shopping at Tobacco Factory market 15 minutes later. David Lloyd gym with its indoor and outdoor pools is a five minute bike ride away. I’ve done a lot of home improvements, all using sustainable and up-cycled materials, including building a spacious eco-cabin at the bottom of the long woodland-style garden – it’s great for home-working, writing (I’m a playwright), acoustic jamming, and summer BBQs on the decking outside. There’s a sunny side-garden too with raised beds for herb and veg growing. Long Ashton – known locally as L.A. or ‘Lallywood’ – has three good pubs, footpath walks, an eccentric post office with scoop-away wholefoods and eco-refills, as well as a monthly market and the L.A. Cinema club. My work and wanting to be nearer to theatre friends and family is taking me back into town now, but l know I’m going to miss this rural oasis."

Birdwell Road is situated centrally in Long Ashton, on the doorstep of shops and amenities at the top of Lovelinch Gardens and along Weston Road. The heart of this village is also home to the popular Birdwell Primary School, just a short walk away. The village is well-regarded by its residents for having its own community and green spaces around, yet just being a mile or so from Bristol and just a ten minute drive from the City Centre and Harbourside area, with regular buses and pleasant cycle routes through Ashton Court into the City. Within the village itself there are several pubs with a good reputation for their food and atmosphere, whilst independent shops such as the Gatcombe Farm Shop and The Little Tipple sell locally produced food and drink. Long Ashton’s huge popularity comes from its proximity to Bristol yet the proud independence it has as a North Somerset village, with a unique rural feel just outside some of the most exciting parts of the city of Bristol.

Nestled into the Long Ashton community is this beautifully extended, and sympathetically renovated, two-bedroom Victorian home with a self-contained eco-cabin. The house looks to be mid-terrace from the front, but is in fact semi-detached at the rear. Upon entry, you are met by a front reception room, with a working Victorian fireplace, restored sash windows, as well as a designer column radiator, a common theme throughout. To the rear of the property, there is an open-plan kitchen dining room with a wraparound kitchen that has a plentiful supply of cupboard space, and a dining area with French doors that open up onto the decking with views of the extensive tree-lined woodland-style garden. Under the stairs space has been recently converted into a utility room with toilet, washing machine connection and wall mounted drying rack. The first floor comprises two double bedrooms, with the rear master bedroom being recently extended to overlook the garden and clad using sustainable larch planks.. This has created space for bespoke built-in wardrobes, alongside the addition of an upstairs bathroom with a floor to ceiling pink tiled walk-in shower. The garden is one of the biggest in the area, with it stretching out to one side with room for raised beds to grow vegetables, whilst down at the far end there is a newly installed eco-cabin with a decked surround. The eco-cabin has been clad in upcycled limewashed pallet wood and houses a shower, kitchen corner with sink, composting toilet and a wifi booster, making it an ideal self-contained room or the perfect office or studio space. There is also a wooden bike store on the decking outside the kitchen with LX socket for charging e-bikes, and space to store recycling boxes, alongside two wooden sheds in the garden.
