Full description

32 St. Johns Road is a well-proportioned semi-detached family house, situated on a favoured road between popular Clifton village and bustling Whiteladies Road. On the doorstep, just some 0.4 miles away, is access to around 400 acres of green open space comprising Clifton and Durdham Downs, with a host of independent bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets all situated on Whiteladies Road, just 0.1 miles from the front door.

Bristol is renowned for its high quality of schooling, and 32 St Johns Road is within 0.3 miles of St. Johns Primary school, as well as within 0.4 miles of Clifton College Prep, Clifton College and under a mile to Clifton High School. Nearby is also Bristol Grammar School (0.8 miles miles), QEH (0.9 miles) and Badminton School for Girls (1.4 miles).

Accessed via a pedestrian gate, the house had a pretty period frontage and a side entrance – providing a useful entrance porch. A glazed front door opens up into a fabulous tessellated hallway, with access to three elegant and well-proportioned reception rooms. These each benefit from high ceilings; with retained period cornice work and working fires. The drawing room and dining room have charming marble fireplaces; with access to the garden from the dining room presenting an excellent entertaining space.

Situated on the half landing below is the family kitchen – with plenty of space for informal dining. The kitchen enjoys excellent storage – with full floor to ceiling storage cupboards, along with a separate larder and access out to the rear garden.

Below lies a very useful cellar proving an expanse of storage, a workshop, as well as the utility room and a wine cellar.

From the hallway, a generous staircase leads to the first floor – lit from above by a glazed ceiling light. From the half landing is access to two bath / shower rooms – providing flexible space for families of all sizes.

Over the first floor are five double bedrooms; with two lovely rooms to the front each having twin sash windows. The master bedroom is to rear, overlooking the garden and benefits from fitted wardrobes, a sink and vanity unit. A useful fifth bedroom/study is also on the first floor, whilst up a shallow flight of stairs a further bedroom can be found – currently a well-proportioned nursery.

Over the second floor is a superb configuration of rooms presenting huge flexibility; previously used as an au pair’s annexe and providing enough space for large families, or to provide a possible rental income. The suite of rooms currently comprise two double bedrooms and a shower room, along with a lovely dual aspect sitting room semi-open to a fitted kitchen.


Approached from the front via a pedestrian gate, a pathway leads up to the front door. To the right is a pretty front garden laid mostly to lawn and surrounded by mature hedging.

To the rear is a fabulous fully enclosed and private garden which catches the morning and early afternoon sun. The garden is predominately paved to provide hard standing and low maintenance – presenting a wonderful space to entertain and for children to play in. The current owners have held many wonderful parties in the house and garden over the 26 years of their ownership; the mature trees provide privacy and the garden can be accessed directly from the front entrance porch, dining room, kitchen and cellar workshop.
