West End, Kingsdown
An inspirational, architecturally designed town house, constructed in 1991 and having undergone a no expense spared, imaginative and eco-friendly renovation to become one of the finest residences that Bristol has to offer. Circa 3,000 sq. ft. of design-led living, 'low-key luxe' with a warm industrial style - think glass, concrete and painted brick walls - with a focus on light and space. The house combines a rare combination of very high-end design and specification yet retains a relaxed, comfortable and laidback feel. The standout features are the full height light well which fills the house with natural light, far reaching cityscape views and the superb, almost 1,000 sq. ft. open plan living space. The remaining accommodation offers a sumptuous master bedroom with generous en-suite and full width windows with cityscape views, an additional large snug/tv room, an entrance hall, 2 further bedrooms served by a family bathroom and an inspiring studio space/additional bedroom with a completely private 'gin and tonic' terrace. Well planned and valuable ancillary rooms on the ground floor include a ‘butler’s pantry’, walk-in larder, laundry and boot room - all impeccably finished. Outside there is a beautiful, landscaped rear garden - designed and planted to attract bees - a calm and tranquil oasis in central Bristol. There is also a side courtyard with ferns and a productive fig tree. Access from both courtyard and rear garden to a useful bespoke storage shed. At the front there are 2 parking spaces and preparation for an EV charging point. The house benefits from a most discrete and private approach, even residents of Kingsdown might have difficulty locating the house, yet the understated exterior couldn't be more in contrast to the stunning interior. The Kingsdown area is an intriguing and relaxed neighbourhood. Located centrally but up high with fine cityscape views. Offers close and convenient access to the academic and medical districts, Gloucester Road, Whiteladies Road, Park Street, the city centre and the Harbourside, all of which is within walking distance. There are a number of friendly local pubs, 2 convenience stores and the Michelin starred restaurant 'Bullrush' all within a short walk.
