An entrance porch leads into a hallway, where parquet flooring flows through to most of the living rooms on this level, the largest of which is the open plan kitchen/dining/living room. It's a generous space that feels both airy and cosy; the different functions for this room defined by clever placing of lighting and furniture.
The kitchen's island unit has a gas hob, two ovens and plenty of worktop surfaces, enabling whoever is cooking to stand facing the rest of the room, while the rest of the simple, white kitchen units house the sink and storage.
Along the full length of this room, there are three pairs of triple-glazed glass, sliding doors, each of which opens on to a paved veranda. The whole feel of this living space is biophilic; there is a great connection inside with the natural elements outside - it's a wonderful, relaxing home.
The living area has a wood burner at its focal point — its inclusion in this Passive House is more about creating a cosy atmosphere than the need for any heating: the air is circulated around the house, maintaining a constant temperature of 19 - 21 degrees throughout. Other eco-features of the house include a natural, sedum roof and state-of-the-art insulation; the efficiency of this house in terms of insualation and energy requirements is second-to-none.
There's a practical study with double aspect windows and space for several desks, a snug/TV room which, because it has a family bathroom next door, could be another bedroom if required. Also on this floor is a large utiity/laundry room and a boot room (also accessed directly from the entrance. porch). This is a practical and functional home: shelving and storage spaces are built in wherever there's space, and there's a generous garage style room that's currently used as a mini gym and for storage of bikes and outdoor kit.
On the first floor, all the bedrooms have generous windows with far-reaching views across to the city and hills beyond. There's a principal bedroom suite plus three double bedrooms, all of equal size, and two bathrooms along a long hallway with a skylight that extends the length of the ceiling, allowing light to flood in.
Approached via a private road off Bathwick Hill, Priory Garden has four parking spaces in front of its discreet entrance gate.
At a third of an acre, the gardens are unusually spacious for a property this close to the city centre. West-facing, and extremely private, they offer unrivalled views,including spectacular sunsets, and the adjoining copse and fields create a peaceful, semi-rural feel.
At the front of the house is a paved area, bike store and courtyard with boxed trees at its centre. To the left, a lawn stretches down to the boundary line and round the back of the house, and up to the paved and covered veranda that wraps around two sides of the house.
