Kingsdown, Bristol, BS2
4 bed house
Fairfield Road, Montpelier, Bristol, BS6
This period home has character and charm in abundance and has an ideal layout for modern family living.
Located in the vibrant and popular Montpelier, the house is in a great position to provide easy access to the city centre, the motorway networks and the local train station.
Fairlawn Primary School is just around the corner, the local shops on Picton Street are within walking distance and the open green spaces of the allotments, the City Farm and St Andrews Park are also nearby.
The lounge has a lovely feel to it. There is an original working fireplace, stripped floorboards, a fitted cupboard and shelving, ceiling cornicing and a large bay window that allows the light to flood in to the house - ideal for soaking up the sunshine in the morning.
The back of the house has been extended and opened up to create a fantastic open plan family space.
This room has plenty of natural light due to the part glazed roof that runs all along one side, the 3 windows that overlook the garden, plus the French doors.
Under the exposed floorboards in this space is underfloor heating which just adds to the cosy feel and the ambiance of this room.
There is ample room in here for a 10 seater table, plus additional chairs and furniture. The bespoke wooden kitchen has been hand built with a teak work surface.
The middle reception is currently used as a utility space / workroom. This can be accessed either from the hallway or from the family room.
There is also potential here for this room to be knocked through and opened to the lounge.
On the first floor are 3 spacious double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The main bedroom at the front spans the full width of the house and has the same large bay window as the lounge below, as well as an additional window allowing even more light to come in. As well as having a fireplace and stripped floors, there is a view from one of the windows towards the city.
Both the other rooms have stripped floors and sash windows, with the middle bedroom also having a feature fireplace.
The family bathroom has a freestanding claw foot bath and a separate shower cubicle. There are stripped floors and 2 sash windows in this room. Due to the high level cistern and some exposed piping, there is a vintage feel to this room.
Up on the original top floor is the fourth double bedroom. This is another spacious room and has a window overlooking the garden.
Off the top landing is a door that opens to the loft space. This really is a fantastic space that really has to be seen to be appreciated. It has a high galleried ceiling and 6 skylights that allow light to flood into this space.
There is also a WC and sink on this level.
The current owners had plans to plumb in a copper bath which would definitely give this room an indulgent feel to it! ( The bath is available by separate negotiation. )
A spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine floor in the ridge of the roof. This is a great space to hide away and enjoy a book, listen to music or just sit in a quiet place and take in the amazing view over the city & beyond.
From here you can access a platform on the roof.
The garden has a mature mountain ash tree that houses a children's play platform and tree house. There are some other trees and shrubs including a cherry tree which we're told produces plenty of cherries !
There is a hand-built chicken house and a useful pedestrian rear access lane.
In short, this is a beautiful family home that oozes charm and character. It has a very unique and individual feel throughout and it has clearly been well loved by the current owners.
