Full description

A 4 storey house with a secret oasis in the heart of the city - a rare find indeed !

It's the outside space that sets this house apart from anything else in the area.
Measuring approximately 70ft x 50ft, it's certainly not your typical Bishopston garden !!

Believed to have been an Orchard in years gone by, there are plenty of mature shrubs and trees. (The owner has been informed that the very productive Bramley Apple tree is rumoured to be around 130 years old. )
There is so much to this garden - the plants, the flowers, the pond, the lawn. It's a real haven for wildlife and it really is a gardeners dream.
Often people say that something has to be seen to be appreciated, and this is certainly true for this magnificent garden.

Seymour Road is a great location as you are a short walk to everything that the Gloucester Road has to offer - independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
The city centre is easily accessible, and the motorway network is a short drive away.

For families, the local primary schools of Ashley Down, Brunel Fields and Sefton Park are all within striking distance. All the schools have been rated as Good or Outstanding at their most recent OFSTED inspections.

The house is certainly deceiving in size as it is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside.
As you enter on the hall floor, there are two reception rooms on this level.
At the front of the house is a lounge that has a bay window with double glazed sash windows, a feature fireplace and ceiling cornice.
The back reception is the full width of the house and it's when you enter this room that you get the first sight of the fabulous garden.
This room has sash windows overlooking the garden and has a real sense of character thanks to the fireplace, fitted dresser, ceiling cornice and rose.

The kitchen/diner is on the lower ground floor and gives direct access to the garden. There is plenty of room here for a large family table in the middle of the room.
Under the front of the house is plenty of cellar storage space.

On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms, the master being the full width at the front of the house, and the double bedroom at the back has a great view of the garden.
The bathroom is a good size and has a bath as well as a separate shower cubicle.

The owner believes that the loft was converted in the late 1970's / early 1980's.
This has 2 large Velux roof lights which allow the light to flood in, and there is plenty of storage in the eaves.

Subject to obtaining the relevant and necessary consents, there could well be the possibility to extend / develop the house further, particularly what is now the kitchen space towards the garden and also the loft could be further extended.

In short, if someone is looking for a house in a sought after location with a wonderful garden, then this house really has to be viewed.

Front Lounge - 4.5m into bay x 3.8m max (14'9" into bay x 12'6" max) - This room has a feature fireplace, a bay window with double glazed sash windows and a ceiling cornice.

Back Reception - 4.9m max x3.7m (16'1" max x 12'2") - Spanning the full width of the house, this has some good features and a great view of the garden.

Kitchen / Diner - 5.2m max x 4.6m max (17'1" max x 15'1" max) - There is plenty of room here for a dining table, and you can also access the underhouse cellar storage. This is also how you access the garden.

Bedroom 1 - 4.9m max x 3.6m (16'1" max x 11'10") - This feels like a 'proper master bedroom' as it is the full width of the house.

Bedroom 2 - 3.7m x 2.4m (12'2" x 7'10") - This double bedroom is at the back of the house and has a great view of the garden.

Bathroom - Unlike many other houses in the area, this feels really spacious as it has a bath plus a separate shower cubicle.

Loft Room - 4.9m max x 3.8m (16'1" max x 12'6") - There are two skylights in this room so its very light. There is also plenty of storage in the eaves.

Garden - 21m x 15m (68'11" x 49'3") - The garden really is the jewel in the crown of this house. Previously an orchard, it is full of trees, plants and plenty of wildlife.
