Redland Road, Redland
Sold for the first time since 1984, this imposing large Victorian freehold building is currently informally arranged as 2 maisonettes, yet offers enormous potential for conversion back into a single family residence. Offering versatile accommodation arranged over 4 floors, attractive front and rear gardens and retaining many period architectural features. Brought by the current owners as one whole house, prior to informally arranging as 2 maisonettes in the 1990’s, this wonderful large building invites conversion back to a family home (subject to any necessary consents). Prime Redland location within a short stroll of the independent shops, restaurants and cafes of Zetland Road/Gloucester Road, also nearby Cotham Gardens Park, Redland train station and within 1 mile of excellent schools including Bristol Grammar and Cotham. Currently arranged as 2 sizeable 2 floor maisonettes, but if re-configured to a family home could be 5-8 bedrooms plus 3 reception rooms offering ample space and flexibility.
