Lawrence Grove | Henleaze
A classic ‘Arts and Crafts’ designed 5 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room, 1920's detached family house, of circa 2,400 sq.ft., having 2 reception rooms and an extended family kitchen entertaining space, driveway parking for 3/4 cars and 70ft rear garden. In a prime location on one of 'The Groves' close to Henleaze high street.
In recent years the house has been significantly extended to provide a large dual aspect kitchen family entertaining space combining powder coated aluminium sliding doors and wide bi-folding doors (the latter with awning), both giving access onto a natural stone patio providing generous space for garden furniture, potted plants and barbecuing etc. The well appointed kitchen features handleless soft closing base and eye level units, quartz worktops, integrated appliances and breakfast bar. At the same time a utility room/plant room was added which also provides a useful discreet entrance from the front elevation.
From the brick paved driveway there is an open-fronted porch with attractive front door featuring circular glass panel opening to an entrance vestibule which in turn leads to a gracious reception hall with wide elegant staircase ascending to the first floor. Both reception rooms feature box bays, exposed wooden flooring and inset wood burning stoves. There is also a separate wc and cloakroom on the ground floor.
At first floor level plenty of natural light is enjoyed courtesy of windows to the side elevation. The principal bedroom (bedroom 1) overlooks the rear garden and has an en-suite shower room. Both bedrooms 1 and 2 have box bay windows and fitted wardrobes. There is also a third bedroom and family bath/shower room.
On the second floor there is a part galleried landing, two further bedrooms and a shower room.
The house features Victorian style radiators with a new gas central heating system and a majority of the windows have been replaced with stylish composite double glazed casement windows (the remainder are original and feature stained glass).
To the front elevation there is a wide brick paved driveway (with additional stone chipped hard standing) that provides off-street parking for 3/4 cars.
To the rear elevation (with gated side access) there is a large natural stone patio offering ample space for entertainment and from which to enjoy the sun throughout the day. A shallow flight of steps then gives access to a section of lawn, either perfect as it is or with exciting potential perhaps for those with green fingers. Additionally there is a summerhouse, outside lighting, external power sockets, aforementioned awning and an outside water tap. The neighbourhood has a great deal to offer. The nearby schools, whether state or private are of an excellent standard and highly regarded. The local convenience store is a nearby Waitrose or Coop. Just a short walk away there is a plethora of cafés, good small restaurants a-plenty, a gastro pub and many varied independent shops to explore as well as the local library and cinema.
