Under Offer £510,000 - Flat
A spacious converted ground floor flat, retaining much period character, situated less than 800 metres from Redland Green School, and offering two bedrooms (or three plus one reception), a split-level rear garden of good size and maybe even potential for off-street parking..
A grand apartment, ideal for upsizers, downsizers, investors, and families who want to live within 800 metres of Redland Green secondary school and within walking distance of Westbury Park or Henleaze primaries. The fireplace in the lounge (which is currently serving as the main bedroom) of this converted ground floor flat is something to behold, and the room also has a wide bay window overlooking the split-level well-proportioned rear garden. There is character elsewhere, too, with stripped floorboards, original tiled flooring in the hallway, another lovely fireplace in one of the bedrooms, and decorative period ceilings. As you will see, the split-level accommodation, currently tenanted, offers the flexibility of having two or three bedrooms (one or two receptions), the kitchen is well-appointed, and there is a huge amount of storage in a basement which is almost as big in area as the flat itself. What’s more, in addition to the large rear garden, the flat also owns the front garden which adds the thought that maybe one could do what most of the other properties along the road seem to have done, and apply for planning permission for off-street parking.
