A stylish and charming BS7 home with tropical garden and fantastic views
Certain properties are blessed with characteristics that simply make you smile and 67 Ashley Hill has these in abundance from the impeccable interior finish and myriad period features to the repurposed Limestone kitchen worktops, south facing, tropical garden, panoramic Bristol views or substantial home office with balcony. The owners have created a unique and simply superb home in a very highly sought after BS7 location.
The property is set back from the road and approached via a lawned front garden. The entrance hall benefits from pine floorboards throughout and lovely high ceilings giving a wonderful sense of spaciousness.
The living room, immediately on the left, is beautifully decorated with intricate ceiling rose and cornicing as well as an ornate fireplace and log burner. Shelving and cupboards are built into the alcoves either side of the chimney breast and the windows have been double glazed with shuttering.
The hall leads through double doors into the equally impressive, open plan kitchen dining room with a verdant colour scheme and impeccable interior creating a real sense of hygge. There is a mix of spot and pendant lighting and ample space for dining 10 people.
The kitchen has a Shaker, farmhouse style with a charming central island and limestone worktops. The modern appliances are built into the surrounding timber base units with limestone worktops, a colourful tiled backsplash and Belfast sink. Underfloor heating runs throughout the kitchen.
The utility is off the kitchen and is spacious with a bright blue colour scheme, mosaic flooring, dado panelling, pulley maids overhead, ample storage in timber cupboards and a sink. A cloakroom is well positioned under the staircase.
Three good sized bedrooms are located on the first floor. The principal suite is particularly spacious, with lovely views from the bay windows, four, large, built-in wardrobes and a contemporary en suite shower room. The second and third bedrooms are also of a comfortable size with individual colour schemes and lovely views onto the garden. The second bedroom benefits from a useful nursery or dressing room whilst the third bedroom has a built-in double wardrobe. A modern shower room services these two bedrooms.
The top floor originally consisted of three further bedrooms but the owners have opened it up to create a light, spacious and very pleasant home office / hobby room. The room flows seamlessly onto a larch clad terrace with railing and charming rooftop views. There is a further guest bedroom on this floor as well as a large family bathroom.
The southwest facing garden to the rear of the property is a topical oasis, far from the hustle and bustle of Bristol city centre. The garden has a tropical theme with well stocked beds including a Palm, Gunnera and Banana tree. A flagstone terrace with water feature provides a peaceful spot for al fresco dining and there is a useful garden shed.
The property has solar installation capability configured into the water cylinder and is well set up to become an eco-home.
