3 bed Terraced SOLD STC

Arranged over three stories and extended on the ground floor is the substantial, stand-out Victorian home. The current owners have sympathetically and extensively improved this property within their tenure to create a home with some outstanding spaces supported by improvements to the quality and efficiency of the home. The house measures approximately 1400 square foot, with a central kitchen, open to large dining and living area acting as a brilliant hub of the house and family space. From this extended room leads the south-facing garden. This well-maintained outside space is also home to an outhouse, suitable for use as a workshop or studio. This house balances its immense space with intricate detail typified by recycled wood door handles, reclaimed scaffolding board shelving in the kitchen and a solid wooden lintel, over the woodburner, which is from the old Kings Cross Station. This house is situated in the ever-popular Greenbank area, close to several green spaces as well as the well-regarded Whitehall Primary School. Many are fond of this area for its lack of traffic, community events and small independent shops and cafes, yet this is an area so close to the hustle and bustle of Bristol City Centre, should residents want to venture in by foot, bike or train. This house is available to view on from Friday 10th August. Contact Boardwalk Property Co. for more information.

This house is situated at the top end of Greenbank, close to Greenbank Cemetery. This particular pocket of just a few roads is in very high demand. The area is shielded from any through-traffic due to the position of Rosemary Green, Greenbank Cemetery and the Bristol to Bath Railway Path, which surround the area. Residents of this area are extremely complimentary about the neighbourhood and local community. The area benefits from its proximity to Bristol City Centre, two local train stations and the M32, making it very accessible to commuters. However, it is the amenities on the doorstep which have enhanced the popularity of the area. The independent shops and cafés of St Marks Road are a short walk away, with popular venues such as The Greenbank Pub, Dela and Este's Kitchen closer still. Families occupy many of the houses in this area, with many still looking to move to the area due to the recent success of the nearby Whitehall Primary (where the current owners daughter has gained a place), and Bannerman Road Primary Schools.

Our Seller Says…
'We've loved living in this house with our young family, with its excellent location and strong sense of community. We put our heart and soul into its renovation and will miss the sun soaked mornings sat in the kitchen and sitting in the garden watching the hot air balloons sail past on a warm summers evening. An added bonus has been running a hugely successful Airbnb business from the property, bringing in enough to cover our mortgage and a wide range of guests from all over the world. If we could take our house with us to the countryside we would and are hoping that we can pass it on to someone who will enjoy living here as much as we have.'
Awaiting updated EPC. According to the Bristol City Council website, the property has 'Very Good' solar power potential.
