Dove Street | Kingsdown

Guide Price £550,000

To be sold for the first time since 1986 and in need of modernisation. A light filled 4 bedroom detached two-storey family home with sheltered and private gardens, single garage and elevated views across the city in a south-easterly direction. Enjoying an elevated position within the historic residential district of Kingsdown. A convenient location on the doorstep of so much and yet tucked away off the main thoroughfares. The house is close to Bristol University, BRI/main hospital complex, the BBC and the local shopping facilities of High Kingsdown, Cotham Hill, Gloucester Road, Stokes Croft and Whiteladies Road. Cotham Secondary, St Michaels on the Mount C of E Primary and St Peter and Paul RC Primary Schools are close by, with independent Bristol Grammar School only a little further afield. Kingsdown sports centre is just a short stroll away. The house has been a much loved family home which is now to be sold with no onward chain. There is exciting scope for enhancement and development subject to first obtaining the necessary planning and building consents. The house is prime for either a simple upgrade or equally would justify a grand designs style renovation to fully capitalise on the incredible views across the city. It is unusual to find a modern detached house in this location where the vast majority are tall terraced town houses. There are secluded sections of garden to the front and either side. The house also benefits from a single garage. Ground Floor: reception hall, dual aspect sitting/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom/wc. First Floor: part galleried landing, 3 double bedrooms, single bedroom (4 in total), family bathroom/wc. Outside: small parking space, single garage, garden on three sides.
