Our Sellers Say…
'We've loved living in this flat and feel very lucky to have had it as our first home. One of the main attractions of the property is the location. It is a short walk to the city centre and surrounding areas such as Clifton, Cotham and St Werburghs. There is a real sense of community in the local area with street parties on the neighbouring roads, the North Bristol Art's Trails and the lively Gloucester Road just around the corner.
We've enjoyed using our beautiful garden, which gets the sun for most of the day. It has a mature pear tree, two apple trees and a cherry tree as well as a large patio area and elevated lawn. For a garden in the heart of the city, it is quiet and peaceful. Due to the trees, it feels secluded and has been a brilliant space for entertaining friends and family.
The back of the house has the light for most of the day, but later on the living room is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the evening sun. St Andrews park is close by and we've enjoyed strolling around it in the late afternoon before heading down to the Gloucester road for dinner or drinks.
The flat has a very welcoming feel to it and has really felt like a home. We hope that whoever buys the property enjoys their time in it as much as we have.'
The flat is currently rated as a 'D' for energy efficiency and environmental impact. The estimated running costs for heating, lighting and hot water are around £815 for the year. The flat has potential to improve to a 'C' rating for both through increased insulation and draft proofing.
