The Property - An imposing Freehold period house ( 3285 Sq Ft ) with Bath Stone elevations and a plethora of period features including ceiling cornices, fireplaces and a fine balcony at the rear of the property. Standing well back from the road the with the advantage of a very good size garden for a town house, the property is currently arranged as four self-contained flats with the benefit of an HMO license. The first floor is vacant and the other three are currently tenanted (details of the tenancies are detailed below). The upper two floors have gas fired central heating. We understand the Garden Flat has the rear garden whilst the Hall Floor Flat has the front and all flats are on separate leases.

Location - Cotham Road is in a prestigious and attractive location on The Cotham Redland borders and within a short walk of the University of Bristol, and The Medical, Shopping, Leisure and Business heartland of the City. The property is ideally suited for access to Whiteladies Road (0.5 miles), Gloucester road (0.75 miles) and the city Centre (1 Mile) whilst Redland Green train station is located with a quarter mile plus local shops to be found in Kingsdown within a few hundred yards. The motorway network is easily accessible as are the main stations.

The Opportunity - The flats have provided a reliable rental income for the previous 35 years but would now benefit from updating.
This property provides an ideal opportunity to acquire a very substantial and imposing period house in one of the most desirable residential areas of Bristol where there is a high demand for investment properties as well as those seeking a family homes.
This property provides an ideal long term investment and has the potential to provide a substantial income in future years particularly if some of the flats are up-graded.
Alternatively vacant flats could be sold individually after renovation.
Possible long term potential to revert to a family house.

Rental Appraisal - The Local Experts say;

Kingsley Thomas Property Letting & Management is confident this property would make a good rental investment situated in one of the most popular areas of the city for both the professional and Student sectors of the letting market. We have assisted the current owner with the letting of the top floor flat to students for many years and we would be suggesting an uplift in rent again this year to approximately £420.00 per person pcm. The vacant first floor flat is in need of complete refurbishment but has excellent potential. We would suggest investigating the possibility of moving the kitchen of this flat to the rear left room and having the lounge adjacent to that to create a 2 bedroom flat ensuring provision for lobby to the bathroom. If this is achieved we would then expect the rental of this to be in the region of £975.00 pcm. Both the Hall Floor Flat and Garden Flat have regulated tenants but if the opportunity arises in the future for vacant possession, we would suggest full refurbishment to take advantage and develop the character and features of each including the balcony of the Hall Floor Flat & the good size rear garden which we understand is with the Garden Flat. Kingsley Thomas Managing Director John Ford says we would be delighted to offer our services to the purchaser of this property. For a no obligation discussion, please contact John on 0117 9469000 or email

Epc - For full details of the EPC please refer to the online legal pack.

Buyer's Premium - Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £750 + VAT (£900 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.

Guide Price - An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price - The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
