This elegant late Victorian semi detached family home is positioned on one of Henleaze's more desirable side roads. With a good sized level back garden and within a few minutes walk of the High Street, Durdham Downs and several local schools it represents a perfect house for growing families.
Built around the turn of the century this established tree lined road is a perfect example of late Victorian architecture. The homes are spacious semi detached villas offering period features, charm and perhaps more importantly the space required for modern family living. Set behind a well stocked front garden a path leads to the side of the house and the front door which opens into an impressive central hallway with returning staircase rising to the upper floors. The hall has a coved ceiling, ceiling rose, dado rail and storage cupboards at the rear. There are three main reception rooms which offer flexibility of use. To the front is a home office/ children's den room with two sash windows overlooking the garden. Adjacent is a sitting/dining room with bay window, solid oak floor and impressive original iron and tile fireplace with marble mantle, slate hearth and coal effect gas fire. The third room currently used as a sitting room overlooks the rear garden. It has a tiled fireplace with an open fire. All three reception rooms have cove ceilings and central ceiling roses. An extended 25 ft. long kitchen with large dining area extends into the garden and offers the possibility to open up into the rear reception room to create a large split level open plan family/kitchen space with bi fold doors opening into the garden. The kitchen has integrated fridge/freezer, oven and microwave, induction hob with hood, dishwasher. washing machine and tumble dryer. Accessed via a door under the stairs is a flight of stairs leading down into the cellars. They provide three small rooms under the sitting room providing useful storage space and a coal chute into a coal store.
Upstairs there are six good sized double bedrooms arranged over two split level floors with spacious landings and serviced by a family bathroom on the first floor and on the top floor a shower room. The two front bedrooms have built-in wardrobes which are original. The top floor also provides two smaller hobby rooms with natural lighting and convenient access into the loft space.
The rear gardens in Henleaze Gardens get progressively larger the further towards Durdham Downs the house is positioned in the road. Being towards The Downs the garden is therefore one of the larger ones in the road at circa 60 ft in length. It is enclosed by walls and has well stocked borders of shrubs and trees around a level central lawn. A patio at the far end provides entertaining space. A gate to the side provides access to the front of the house.
A great family home that offers comfortable accommodation that can be adapted and updated over time to the new owners individual tastes.
