A rare opportunity to acquire this most handsome and versatile 'Stride' built detached residence that enjoys an extensive plot well set back from the road. This distinctive property has been in the same ownership for a number of years and whilst much loved and cared for by the current owner, would benefit from modernisation, although does retain much of its original character and charm. The flexible accommodation is arranged over two floors and would suit a variety of lifestyles.
The ground floor is currently arranged as 4 reception rooms, although due to the nature of the property two of the rooms could be easily used as generous double bedrooms, plus a downstairs shower room and fitted kitchen. The living room opens via original solid wood sliding doors through to the sitting room, which in turn opens into the conservatory, an ideal open space for entertaining. As you enter the property you are welcomed by a sizable entrance hall with an attractive turned staircase rising to the first floor.
The first floor is currently arranged as two very generous bedrooms, both of which have dual aspect and could be reconfigured to create further bedrooms plus potential for ensuite facilities. There is also an upstairs W.C. and airing cupboard, which may also have potential to be altered if required.
The rear south-easterly facing garden measures some 115ft by 60ft (approx), is beautifully presented and incorporates mature trees, flower, shrub and herbaceous beds and borders. There is also a brick built outhouse and greenhouse along with extensive patio area. To the rear of the plot is a large detached garage plus an abundance of parking which is approached via an electric gated driveway. There is also a large brick built bomb shelter which offers a variety of possibilities of use, subject to consents.
The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature beds, shrub, trees and bushes, and enclosed by greenery.
The property is situated on the ever popular Bell Barn Road amongst other attractive detached homes. The local shops are within a few hundred yards level walk, with Stoke Lodge playing fields also very nearby. Bus services and a local railway station are within easy reach with the city centre less than a three miles distance. There are excellent schools both state and independent nearby, including Stoke Bishop and Elmlea for the former and Redmaids, Badminton and Clifton College for the latter. The A4 provides good access to Bristol's commercial centre as well as the M4 and M5 motorway networks, which serve the South West, Midlands, Wales and London. Bristol Parkway and Temple Meads Train Stations offer rail links to most cities nationwide.
From the top of Whiteladies Road continue straight over the downs, through the traffic lights and down Stoke Hill. Continue past the shops and up the hill to the mini roundabout. Turn left into Shirehampton Road and take the second turn on the right into Bell Barn Road. The house is situated about 100m into the road on the right hand side.
