An elegant and well-proportioned 5 double bedroom grade II listed Georgian townhouse located in an historic, central, yet remarkably peaceful quarter of the city. Offering versatile accommodation with potential for further cosmetic improvement, 70ft x 20ft rear garden and garage.

Situated in a charming Georgian square overlooking the lawned central park and towering over the city with spectacular views from the upper floors and offering the convenience of being just a short stroll down into the city centre and Stokes Croft/Cheltenham Road. Excellent schools including Cotham Gardens, Cotham School and Bristol Grammar School are nearby, as is Bristol University and the BRI/Children's hospitals.

Currently occupied by students, yet retaining many original features and original room proportions, giving exciting scope to cosmetically improve and design the interior to individual tastes and specification.

70ft x 20ft tiered rear garden (including garage) with rear access from Springfield Road, offering potential to develop the rear section of the garden and garage into a large garage, studio space or potentially separate dwelling (subject to any necessary consents).

Offered with no onward chain and vacant possession in summer 2019, this fabulous city home offers an exciting proposition without uncertainty.
