Our Seller Says....
"This flat has been a fantastic home for me since moving-in nearly four years ago. I have made a number of improvements to transform the property into a wonderful place to rest at the end of a long day, or spend some time reading on the sofa whilst watching the world go by across the green at the front of the building; shutters in the windows, tiling the kitchen and living room walls, staining the hardwood floors and a new carpet in the bedroom are a few of the improvements made. The location is fantastic and will be for anyone wanting to explore some amazing areas of Bristol. Whether it's a day on Gloucester Road sipping local beers and gorging oneself on Bristol's finest burger (in my opinion) at the Hobgoblin, or a quick trip to Whiteladies Road for an indulgent shopping experience, or stretching the legs atop the Downs at the end of Redland Road, all of these are within a stone's throw of the flat making it perfectly located. I will very much miss this place, but hope it will continue to be as brilliant a home for the new owners as it has been for me over the past 4 years."
