Full description

A frankly magnificent penthouse apartment being the entire second floor of an attractive detached property known as Riverwood House but formerly named Grove House, the home in the 1800s of Joseph Fry a chocolate and confectionary legend.

The apartment would benefit from a programme of updating to create an exceptional and spacious home while its potential will not go unnoticed, due to its sheer scale, for conversion into two smaller but nevertheless good sized flats, subject to all necessary consents including planning being obtainable. Interested applicants are advised to refer to the legal pack and make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, the South Gloucestershire Council. Tel: 01454 868004.

Whatever the destiny for the property and its garden, its leafy and convenient location in one of Bristol's most favoured residential areas is likely to attract the attention of owner occupiers, residential lettings investors and members of the building fraternity for post-works onwards-sale.

Ground Floor
Grand entrance, communal hall and staircase.
First Floor
Landing (serving only Flats 1-3). Front door to Flat 1 with wide staircase rising.
Second Floor
Vast landing, spacious sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, three large bedrooms, inner hall, bathroom with door to a central feature terrace that also provides light to the landing.

There is a sizeable area of garden down and around a path to the side belonging solely to the apartment and, whilst currently unformalised, has the makings of materially enhancing its value. Communal parking to front.

Remainder of a 999 year lease (registered with Absolute Leasehold Title) from 1st October 1983.
