Located on a quiet back road in one of Bristol’s most vibrant areas, this new build, architect-designed 2/3 bedroom two-storey house brings light, colour and texture to modern urban living. Externally the house is clad in forest pennant stone with bath stone window surrounds and copings; the wall finish reverts to bright pink render at first floor and on the rear elevation. Windows and doors on the street elevation are made locally from painted timber.

A welcoming entrance hall with storage space and a large rooflight leads to a flexible ground floor room which can be used as a study, guest bedroom or second reception. On the left-hand side the combined wc / utility room contains a washing machine, tumble dryer and the hot water cylinder cupboard.

The heart of the house is a generous, dual aspect kitchen / dining / living room with Crittall-style powder coated aluminium doors opening to a private courtyard at the rear. The L-shaped kitchen runs along the street facade and features in-built appliances, quartz worktop extending into to the window sills, fully tiled splashback and a contrasting wall unit with fluted glass doors and open shelves on the right-hand corner. The kitchen includes a tall integrated fridge freezer, induction hob and oven, built-in dishwasher and pan drawers with cutlery trays. A tiled chimney with inset bioethanol fireplace (inspired by the tiled stoves found in alpine regions) screens the staircase from the living areas; the deep recess under the stairs is the perfect place to 'hide' the tv. The colour scheme throughout the ground floor creates a pared-back, relaxed atmosphere where dusty pink walls (Templeton Pink by Farrow and Ball) complement the stained oak floor and warm grey kitchen units with the counterfoil of the off-white worktop and wall tiles.

The staircase leading to the first floor is bathed in natural light coming from a large roof window overhead; three built-in floating oak shelves create additional storage space on the landing. The carpet flooring unifies the first floor areas in a natural, earthy tone.

The first floor bedrooms (one double and one single) are light, tranquil spaces looking over the impressive listed terrace across the road.

Another roof windows provides abundant daylight to the family bathroom, which contains a bath, a separate shower and a generous vanity unit with countertop basin; the sleek, black bathroom fittings match the rest of the internal ironmongery.

Throughout the house a simple palette of consistent materials ties the various spaces together in a cohesive ensemble.

The rear courtyard extends the full width of the plot to create a colourful, sunny oasis. Finished in rustic flagstones with bright pink walls, it features a full length, built-in bench - clad in composite timber boards. A planting bed filled with tall bamboos and several pots and planters animate the space and introduce blocks of greenery. On the street facade, a second oak door leads to the refuse / bike store.

The house is heated by an air-source heat pump located in the rear courtyard, which feeds the underfloor heating installed through the entire ground floor. The first floor bedrooms have small radiators; the bathroom is equipped with a full-height towel rail as well as an electrical floor mat.
