This comfortable family home has flexible, modern well appointed accommodation arranged over four floors and can accommodate the largest of families in a great location just off Whiteladies Road by the BBC buildings. A city living townhouse in cosmopolitan Clifton.
Extensively refurbished approximately 12 years ago the house provides updated accommodation throughout and is ideally suited to growing families or even several generations living together. The current owners have four children who all attended local schools and appreciated its convenient position providing access on foot to a great many places without the need for a parents taxi service.
The house is an imposing building, set back from the road with three off street parking spaces provided to the front of the house. The entrance door is to the side with a further door and useful covered passage providing access into the rear garden. The entrance hall is a particularly attractive feature of the house. It has a wonderful tessellated tiled floor and rather grand staircase rising to the upper floors. To the front two of the reception rooms have been opened up to provide a homely farmhouse style kitchen/living space featuring a bespoke Harvey Jones kitchen with gas fired Aga at one end and open hearth fire at the other. A fabulous social area essential in a large family home it features an island unit in the kitchen and space for a breakfast table set into the bay window. The ceiling above the living area is particularly attractive with moulded plaster detail. To the a rear another formal reception room overlooks the rear garden. Currently used as a dining room it has swallowed a large dining table and additional furniture with ease and could if desired be used as a more formal sitting room. A boot room is down a few steps from the main hall and has door to the rear garden and an attached cloakroom which also houses the central heating boiler and pressurised megaflow hot water tank.
The basement provides approximately 6 ft. of head height and some very usable rooms. A utility is positioned at the bottom of the stairs, to the rear is a room currently used as a gym, complete with lower area to accommodate a running machine. To the front another large room that has been used as the children's den with another room used as a laundry area. Central heating extends into the basement rooms.
The upper floors provide seven double sized bedrooms. Some could be purposed for other tasks if desired. They are serviced by a family bathroom on the first floor and a shower room on the top floor which also has surprisingly good ceiling height for an upper floor. Many of the rooms retain a degree of period detail such as fireplaces and beamed ceilings which adds character to the house. A loft storage area extends over one of the half landing bedrooms.
The rear gardens enjoys a favourable southerly aspect and has been landscaped to provide a low maintenance space perfectly suited to outside entertaining or as is currently the case a large central area being used to accommodate a table tennis table. with dining table set into a secluded corner. A covered passage to the side of the house with locking gates provides a useful bike storage area.
Attractively presented throughout and easily capable of accommodating the eight adults currently in residence along with the additional contents of parents homes, numerous bikes and sporting gear this is a wonderful opportunity for family to benefit from a house following a relatively recent major overhaul in this convenient central location within a few minutes walk of Whiteladies Road, BBC, University and several independent and state schools.
