Stoke Hill, Stoke Bishop

Sold STC £1,250,000

Property Description

Full description

A truly individual and stunning residence forming half of an imposing Grade II listed Victorian house, originally commissioned by a prominent Bristol philanthropist sea captain around 1837. St Marys was lovingly and comprehensively restored and modernised within the last decade to create a three/four bedroom house of immense Gothic character within grounds of around one third of an acre. The result of this magnificent refurbishment is a blend rarely found; an individual, historic house adorned with character yet piece of mind backed by a recent, comprehensive restoration to the fabric and services. This combination is something that we are confident will appeal to the more discerning purchaser. Some of the countless features include leaded light windows with stone mullions and shutters, an impressive entrance vestibule leading into a most welcoming entrance hall, carved stone fireplaces and a most ornate stairwell forming a notable central feature. The kitchens and bath/shower rooms have all been appointed to a particularly high standard. A gated entrance approaches St Marys providing ample driveway parking as well as access to detached garaging. The lower ground floor of the house has fantastic open, family living space very much in line with todays lifestyle requirements. This space also offers direct access to a south west facing sun terrace with steps down to a magnificent level, lawned garden.

A point worth noting is that the current owners did have planning consent granted (that would now require reinstatement) for an exciting addition to the house that would have resulted in an 850 square foot garden level extension. This could have served as any number of facilities to the house whether requiring additional accommodation, a home office, separate annexe or a leisure complex.

Summary Of Accommodation - Ground floor: Entrance vestibule to entrance hall, drawing room, study sun room with balcony. Lower ground floor with lobby leading to fourth bedroom, shower room and utility room and open plan kitchen/dining/family room and snug leading out to a sun terrace. First floor with master bedroom (en suite) and two further bedrooms served by a family bathroom. Outside: The garden comprises two principal areas of lawn spanning around 105 x 120 at the combined maximum measurement (the overall plot size is around 1/3rd of an acre). The property is approached via automated cast iron gates off Church Road and a paved driveway providing ample car parking and access to a detached single garage.

Location - This particular location is without doubt one of the city's most highly regarded addresses. Stoke Bishop and Sneyd Park are situated on the edge of the open expanse of Clifton's Downs forming 400 acres of inner city openness. The Downs create a natural division between the subject property and the historic suburb Clifton as well as a dramatic viewpoint across the Avon Gorge (in itself recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty). Sneyd Park offers many practicalities over and above some of the neighbouring residential areas especially for those seeking larger garden sizes and ease of car parking. This particularly convenient position offers a choice of extensive local amenities at either Whiteladies Road (within half a mile) or Henleaze (around three quarters of a mile). Bristol city centre is within two miles and can be accessed by a regular bus service that passes the subject property. Access to the national motorway network can be found within two and a half miles to junction three of the M32 and three miles to junction 18 of the M5. The M5 also provides access to the extensive regional shopping centre at Cribbs Causeway. Bristol City centre is within three miles with a regular commuter rail service from Temple Meads to London Paddington and Bristol International Airport is around ten miles away offering daily flights to Europe. The area is particularly well served for schooling in both the state and private sectors.

Agents Note - We understand that planning consent was once granted granted for a single storey, side extension that could be reapplied for if required (proposed plans/architects drawings and further details can be inspected by prior arrangement).
