Full description

A superb ground floor apartment in undoubtedly the most prestigious property in Staple Hill, Grade II listed Hill House. Steeped in History it dates back to Circa 1700 and has over the years been home, amongst others, to the Page family of Page Park & local colliery owner Handle Cossham, in whose memory Cossham Hospital was built.

Set in beautifully manicured communal gardens with mature trees and in a fantastic location overlooking Page Park, there is ample space to enjoy alfresco dining and a large lawn ideal for games or just simply sitting enjoying the space or a good book.

The building was sympathetically converted into three flats in 1983 with the ground floor flat having only had two owners. Upon entering the property, the large central hallway with 10'8 high ceilings give you an immediate sense of grandeur and space. The rooms beyond are bathed in light from the floor to ceiling sash windows. These have each been painstakingly restored and maintained to better than new condition.

With three bedrooms the flat offers flexible living with the smaller third bedroom currently being used as a dining room and previously as a study. The two large main bedrooms each have ample storage from the built-in wardrobes, the master also having a good size en-suite.

The kitchen at 4.8m/15'9" long has plenty of worktop space and access to the rear garden from the sash window. The front room however is the real show stopper with a feature listed marble fireplace, snug, and party piece bar hidden behind two large listed doors, at one time communicating doors to another part of the house.

There is a good sized common cellar for the 3 apartments as well as a lockable cellar discreet to the property, with lighting and electricity making an ideal place to store garden furniture, bikes, freezer and other large items. The flat has two allocated parking spaces, gas central heating throughout with broadband and a burglar alarm fitted and no onward chain.

A fantastic opportunity to purchase a truly unique property, full of character and quality.

Vendors comments:

"The apartment is part of an area where my life with my late husband has been enjoyed. In fact we sat in the living room of this apartment to choose the hymns for our wedding. When the house was a school some of our family were taught here and we played on the grass tennis courts which are now part of the rear lawns. We always admired the house, without dreaming we would ever have the opportunity to live here and when the apartment came up we jumped at the chance. We were able to create a light warm and attractive home here and enjoyed the gardens, the proximity to the park, bus stops, and amenities such as the nearby surgery and shops. The neighbours are pleasant and our many friends and family enjoyed visiting us here.

Time has moved on and I am now on my own with family distant. I have the opportunity to move into more sheltered accommodation where good friends already live and I have decided to do this while I am still in reasonable health. I leave the apartment with great reluctance but in the hope it will give the next owners as much joy as we had here."

The management company is run in house with each owner having a 1/3rd share of the freehold and therefore a say in how the management company is run and regulated.
