This large (over 1100 sq/ft.) characterful two double bedroom top floor apartment would benefit from some updating and is offered for sale with no onward chain. Positioned in a quiet side road at the top end of Redland within a few minutes’ walk of Durdham Downs.
The split-level flat occupies the entire top floor of a large Victorian townhouse and would benefit from some cosmetic updating to the incoming owners own tastes. As such it offers the opportunity for someone to really put their own stamp on a spacious flat that already has a lot of character. The position is quiet yet convenient. Durdham Downs are within a few minutes’ walk and the cosmopolitan amenities of Whiteladies Road are approximately 10 minutes’ walk.
Approached via a path to the side of the house the communal front door has new door entry system and opens into a recently redecorated attractive lobby and through another door into a spacious communal hall with tessellated tiled floor and stained glass windows. A grand staircase rises to the upper floors. At second floor level a door opens into the flat hall with the two large double bedrooms positioned at the front of the property. Both have built in wardrobes and the main bedroom also has a period open hearth fireplace.
A spacious bathroom with skylight is positioned centrally. Whilst decoratively dated it could be revamped using some of the existing bathroom suite like the free-standing cast-iron bath. There is a good size shower, wash basin, WC and a useful linen cupboard. The main living accommodation is arranged at the back of the building. The living room is 17 x 16 ft. Has two sash windows to the rear and open-hearth period fireplace. Double doors open via some steps into the slightly lower level kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen whilst dated is functional. An island unit houses the gas hob and the double bowl sink. An integrated electric oven is positioned at chest height within a run of units that provide plenty of worksurface space. There is a washing machine and fridge/freezer in the room and space for a good sized table in the area adjacent to the picture window which incorporates a window seat.
Gas fired central heating via Worcester combi boiler.

The management company are committed to improving the building in the coming years. Having just updated the fire alarm system and redecorated the communal halls. We are aware of some roof works that are in the pipeline over the next few years with an estimated contribution of circa £3000 for the top floor flat and we require any prospective buyer to take this into account before making an offer. We believe we have priced the flat to reflect the works required.
