Accessed towards the end of Bellevue Crescent, the house sits in an enviable location on this quiet no-through road, with a charming local stone frontage and sunny south-west facing garden.
A shallow flight of steps leads up to the front door, and a useful entrance porch provides space for shoes and coats. A part glazed door opens to the entrance hall, with a retained period arch through to the stairwell and into the kitchen.
To the front of the house is an elegant sitting room; light-filled with a shuttered sash window, high ceilings with period plaster work, central ceiling rose and a period fireplace with tiled inserts below. A full depth cupboard provides plenty of storage; with fitted cupboards running behind the stairs being a feature of the house.
To the rear is a fabulous open plan kitchen and dining room, with plenty of space for informal seating and a formal dining table. The rear wall is glazed to near full width, illuminated further from above by a ceiling lantern and providing access into the garden via glazed French doors.
The kitchen itself is well-appointed with a central island, plenty of workspace and a range of floor and wall-mounted storage. It is a wonderful space for family to congregate, spilling out as it does to the dining room and garden beyond. Further features include space and plumbing for a dishwasher and fridge / freezer, with a fitted four ring gas hob and a gas oven below.
Accessed from the dining room is a useful utility room with additional access to a downstairs cloakroom with a w.c and wash basin.
Upstairs, via the turned wooden balustrade staircase are two lovely rooms on the first floor, one each to front and rear. The current owners have re-purposed the front room as an additional sitting room, but it could easily revert back to a fourth bedroom. It too has a lovely period fireplace with a cast-iron hearth below, a sash window, ceiling plasterwork, central rose and a recessed storage cupboard.
To the rear is the wonderfully light master bedroom, with a feature double casement window opening up and overlooking the garden whilst taking in the views beyond. There is the chance from here to "step out" onto the roof below, although it should be noted this is not an official terrace. This room too has the use of a recessed built-in wardrobe.
Above over the top floor lie two further double bedrooms. The second bedroom to the front is a fabulous size; full width with a double glazed sash window taking in extensive views. To the rear is the fourth bedroom with a double glazed casement window and far-reaching views across the masts of the SS Gt. Britain towards Dundry in the distance.
The bedrooms share a family bathroom, complete with a panelled bath and thermostatic shower above. The bath suite is complemented by a pedestal wash basin and a low level w.c. In addition, there is a recessed boiler cupboard to one side, and a shelved recess to the other, perfect for towels and linen.
The garden is a particular feature of the property and a real sun-trap. Accessed from the kitchen / dining room is a paved terrace, fully enclosed on all sides , very private and the perfect space for an impromptu outdoor lunch or relaxed morning coffee.
Up a flight of steps lies the upper garden, mostly laid to lawn with mature borders and, to the end of the garden, some fantastic views across Bristol towards Kelston Clump in the distance. The garden enjoys plantings comprising an Olive tree, scented lavender and rosemary bushes to name but a few and with its raised aspect catches much of the day's sun.
