Prospect House is an elegant and generous Georgian property constructed in 1815. One of the early houses built locally - now forming part of this incredibly popular Bristol suburb. Of particular note here is the elevated position, providing fantastic southerly facing and far reaching views from the rear.
This favoured position provides a relatively quiet corner at the top of Montpelier - a very popular and vibrant Bristol suburb. Ideally placed to easily access many local amenities, these include Picton Street with its independent shop's, cafés and restaurants.
St Andrews Park, Gloucester Road, the city centre and major transport links are also a short walk away as is the recently re opened Fairlawn primary school.
The accommodation is spread over three spacious levels; The ground floor opens into an impressive entrance hallway with galleried staircase connecting to the upper levels. A wide kitchen/dining room is found first on the left hand side, complete with a wooden hand built kitchen, granite work surfaces and space for a range oven. A door leads through to a side passage, great for additional storage and eventual access to the garden.
The stunning principle reception measures 17' x 16'10 enjoying a cosy whilst spacious feel. There are many original features here, ceiling cornice and rose, stripped wooden floor boards, period fireplace, built in storage and a bay window inset with a pair of French doors. From here steps lead out onto the patio section of the rear garden.
Back inside and completing the the ground floor is a door tucked away under the stair case that lead down into a basement storage level.
Stairs rise past an arched picture window - where lots of light and a great view can again be enjoyed - up to the first floor. First up is a genuinely special room, measuring 21'ft in width and filled again with many original features. The tall ceiling heights, bay window with two very large sliding sash windows add to the already light and airy feel.
An interconnecting door gives access to a further double bedroom (this can also be accessed from the landing). A well appointed family bathroom services the first floor and completes this level.
Stairs rise up to the 2nd and top floor: from here even greater views can be enjoyed. Unusually a door from the landing gives access up onto the roof, where an array of solar panels are found. Three double bedrooms, a bathroom with enclosed shower and a large storage space make up this floor. A high quality of finish can again be seen here with solid hardwood flooring running throughout and working double glazed sliding sash windows.
Outside the level walled rear garden is split into two main sections; flag stone paving lead out from house to give a perfect place for enjoying the sun and AL fresco dining. Well stocked borders create a mature feel and surround a the area laid to lawn. Being elevated over the next road gives a greater sense of privacy. The rear facade (originally the front) is a brilliant example of a Georgian house - complete with a grand portico.
