Tenure: Freehold

Built at the end of the eighteenth century, 30 Somerset Street is rich in elegant Georgian charm and offers a wealth of intriguing original period features, typical amongst this historically significant, cobbled street. Arranged over four floors, its distinctive period frontage mirrors the rear façade with an elegant bath stone bay window on every floor. The side elevation has been clad in a fabulous Spanish slate, weathered over time to reveal a deep, earthy hue. The front door, framed by a classically Georgian triangular pediment, leads into the main hall. To the right, the dining room offers original stripped-back floorboards, complementing the exquisite wall panelling and intricate cornicing. The bay window with southerly aspect floods the space with natural light whilst offering uninterrupted, elevated vistas of Bristol. The fireplace with cast-iron wood-burner and slate hearth is adorned with an opulent green floor-tile, complemented by elegant Georgian design. An alcove has been utilised as the perfect storage solution for coats and shoes. Across the hall, the kitchen/breakfast room offers a range of wooden cabinets accompanied by white tiled splash-backs. The kitchen offers white porcelain sink with draining board, space for fridge-freezer, dishwasher and oven. A window seat adds further period charm as well as providing integrated seating for the breakfast area. Descending the traditional spindled staircase to the lower ground floor, an exquisite bath stone recess alcove remains, creating a fabulous focal point. This feature once housed the original water pump and tap. To the left the drawing room is bathed in natural light, courtesy of its southerly aspect, over looking the garden. A fireplace with painted wood surround and slate hearth adds further interest. This level also provides a sizeable utility room with plentiful cupboards and worktop space, as well as stainless steel sink and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. The lower ground floor cloak room offers WC, sink and storage cupboard. The master bedroom, on the first floor, enjoys panoramic city views as well as dado rail and charming fireplace with detailed wood surround, whilst ample built-in wardrobes provide further storage. Across the landing, the luxurious and sympathetic family bathroom offers stripped-back exposed timber floorboards, complementing the Victorian-style, four-piece bathroom suite. The centre-piece is without doubt the deluxe roll-top, cast-iron bath with brass taps. The walk-in shower is fully-tiled with extractor fan positioned above. The first floor landing benefits from an endearing sash window with views of Somerset Street. The second floor provides two further double bedrooms. The second bedroom, with en suite shower, benefits from an abundance of light with brilliant views. Exposed floorboards and a further feature fire place offer added interest. The third bedroom offers views of Somerset Street and Freemantle Road, as well as a feature fireplace, built-in wardrobe and en suite toilet and basin.

Situation

The eighteenth century saw a large amount of houses built in Kingsdown, as the professional and mercantile classes sought to move to a more elevated part of Bristol, away from the factories and smog of the city’s industrial centre. Roads such as Somerset Street and Kingsdown Parade typify this Georgian architectural development. Today, Kingsdown has rapidly become a cosmopolitan centre nestled between Whiteladies Road, The Triangle and Gloucester Road. A tremendous amount of independent outlets including, bars, restaurants, café’s and supermarkets can be found nearby. These alongside access to a range of well regarded schools both within the state and private sector, make Kingsdown an attractive proposition. Bristol’s M4/M5 motorway network can be reached from the M32 link road which is approximately one mile away. Local trains run from Redland into Temple Meads where main line access is available in to London Paddington.

Outside

The mature, rear walled garden offers privacy and tranquillity in abundance. It is predominantly laid to lawn, with well-stocked and nurtured borders. To the left, two established apple trees yield a high amount of fruit, whilst honeysuckle, jasmine and viburnum provide a captivating floral scent. Large white and yellow rose bushes enhance the garden with added colour. To the rear of the garden, a secure shed offers bike and equipment storage.
