Tenure: Share of Freehold

Arranged over two floors, this generous maisonette offers two double bedrooms and a great west facing private rear garden. The property dates back to 1870 and has been converted into 3 apartments. The maisonette occupies the hall floor and lower ground floor levels. It still retains the original decorative cornice, ceiling rose and fireplace. The main bedroom has a pair of full height sash windows which allow the east-facing morning light to stream in; better than any alarm clock! The second bedroom enjoys a view over the enclosed rear garden. The bathroom which has just been redecorated, is spacious and shares the lovely high ceilings indicative of this period property.

Downstairs to the lower ground floor there is an internal 'Georgian Style' window into the kitchen dining room which gives the first glimpse of garden. A great under stairs storage area can also be found here, along with a walk in storage area at the end of the hall. The Cottage style kitchen has solid wooden units and work surfaces, a 'Belfast Style' sink along with connections and power for all modern appliances. The feature of this room has to be the impressive stone fire surround and original cast iron kitchen range. Storage is no issue here as there is a huge walk-in pantry, complete with shelving, perfect for any budding chef or weekend baker. There are two windows out to the garden along with a modern stable style door complete with cat flap allowing access to the fully enclosed rear garden. Finally, the sitting room, or 'snug' as the owners refer to it, has been arranged to create the ideal place to retire to after enjoying dinner with friends.

The rear garden has a patio area directly outside the kitchen dining room ( an ideal space to securely store multiple bicycles) and steps leading up to the main garden area. It is arranged with a timber pergola and decked seating area, low maintenance stone chippings, manageable planting beds, with vegetable/fruit growing areas and even a small pond. The garden is enclosed with the original stone walls and is a great place to enjoy a barbecue with friends.

The current owners chose this superb apartment because of its convenient location. There is a host of well known shops and restaurants right on your doorstep. It is only minutes away from a huge range of delicious eateries, including the Michelin Starred 'Wilks' and 'The Kensington Arms' gastro pub. Whiteladies Road and Gloucester Road are also both only a short walk away from the apartment. The Cotham North Residents Parking Scheme operates in this area, making life far easier for anyone travelling to work each day by car. It is also only a 5-minute walk to the local Redland Train Station.
