Property details

"When we moved into Balmain Street, we never imagined for a moment that we would be here for 25 years! 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 lockdowns 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 local bars - The Bank and Southside Bar and Kitchen. Great local pubs - The Oxford, The Shakespeare and The Star and Dove with great food and regular live music. 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 two double bedroom end of terrace bay fronted Victorian home. Upon entry, you are met by wooden floorboards that lead through to the front reception room, housing a period fireplace, as well as double glazed sash windows, as well as wooden shelving to one side of the chimney breast. To the rear of the property, the dining room has been opened up to the kitchen, creating a modern living space. In the heart of the home, there is a log burner, the continuation of wooden floorboards, as well as shelving to either side of the chimney breast, whilst the kitchen has been opened up through a side-return extension, with a U-shaped kitchen, stunning glass roof with wooden frame, a shower room, alongside bifold doors that lead out to the paved garden. The first floor comprises two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, as well as a bathroom. Having an apex roof, there is also the option of extending into the loft, creating yet more living space.
