The first floor comprises five bedrooms, encompassing two large double bedrooms, and three smaller bedrooms. The master bedroom features a bay window and original feature fireplace, whilst each of the rear bedrooms offer views over the garden.

Completing this level is a smartly presented four-piece bathroom suite with walk-in shower enclosure, bath, hand wash basin and WC, and an additional three-piece bathroom with shower-over-bath, hand wash basin and WC.

Ascending to the second floor, you will find the master bedroom - a comfortable double bedroom offering stellar views of the garden, Malmesbury Close Allotments, and the surrounding area, a beautiful vista and real a highlight of the property. Extensive eaves storage and an ensuite shower room complete this level.

Vendor's Comments -

"We fell in love with it the moment we walked in and heard the birdsong and saw how bathed in light the house was. It enjoys a south westerly aspect, with a far-reaching view from the top floor – across the city to Dundry and Lansdowne. The small allotment that borders the rear of the property brings tranquillity and an open feel that we have never tired of. The street itself has a real connected community, with friendly helpful neighbours. As well as a street WhatsApp we also have a ladies book club and we have an annual street party.

We are only the second owners of this home. The original owner had bought it as a brand-new build in the 1930’s, when she was newlywed, moving out and selling to us when she was 99. Somehow that feels special, and in many ways we are sad to be leaving before we’re 99 because living in this home and on this street has been fabulous."
