An inviting period family home in the heart of Bishopston.
This wonderful, four bedroom family home is situated on Falmouth Road, a short walk from the amenities of Gloucester Road. The house has been the subject in recent years of comprehensive renovation and extension, introducing an exemplary palette of contemporary materials and finishes across four storeys.
The ground floor is characterized by generous and open-plan reception rooms at the front elevation. A deep bay window allows natural light to fill this space and a large sash window at the rear provides an open outlook over the garden. Period features are in abundance including ceiling coving, picture rails, high-rise skirting boards and an open fireplace with wooden surround. Wood flooring runs underfoot and there are useful storage cupboards in the alcoves. Along the hall, the kitchen/dining room is accessed a few steps down at the rear. A range of wall and base units are accompanied by integrated appliances such as fridge freezer, dishwasher 5-ring gas hob and oven. This comfortable space enjoys underfloor heating, with ample space for a dining table and further seating. A set of glazed doors open out onto a decked terrace with steps down to the garden. This space is perfect for al fresco dining.
Stairs rise to the first floor and a guest bedroom is accessed from the half-landing at the rear. Two well-balanced double bedrooms occupy the remainder of the first floor, along with a family bathroom.
The principal bedroom is situated on the top floor within the converted loft space. The bedroom is generous in size and benefits from a high degree of natural light via a Velux window and Juliet balcony with views across neighbouring rooftops and beyond. The stylish en suite has a walk-in shower, WC, basin and heated towel rail. The current owners have made practical use of the remaining space including in-built wardrobes and eaves storage.
Beneath this footprint and accessed from the hall, stairs lead to a lower ground floor cellar. Currently separated into two spaces including a useful workshop and utility area. There is lighting and electricity, providing convenient storage space or the potential to create a more habitable space subject to the necessary consents.
At the rear, a low-maintenance garden is predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed by boundary walls. There is a decked area at the far end with space for additional seating and a useful storage shed.
