A stunning four bedroom Victorian townhouse in a popular crescent situated above Bristol’s harbourside with accommodation arranged over three floors. Bellevue Crescent is a popular residential address within the active community of Cliftonwood and provides inspiring cityscape vistas both over and out of the city in different directions. The property has been greatly improved and lovingly maintained under the current, twenty year ownership with the addition of a fantastic open plan, split level living/dining kitchen space to the rear of the house with direct garden access. Some fine original features include good ceiling heights throughout with detailing, panelled sash windows and doors, fireplaces and an elegant central stairwell.
The house is tastefully and artistically presented possessing a real “boutique hotel” and semi industrial mood, having had such careful consideration awarded to the individual styling and bespoke decorative finishes. Some notable attributes that create this feel include natural wood flooring by Chauncey’s, a bespoke fitted kitchen with polished concrete worksurfaces and beautifully appointed bath/shower rooms (complete with luxury sanitary ware by Duravit and fittings by Hans Grohe).
One of the most predominant features of the house is the addition of some full width bi fold doors enjoying a South Westerly aspect providing a seamless connection with the private lower courtyard area within the back garden. This represents the perfect place to “bring the outside, in” and enjoy al fresco dining. By contrast, the living room to the front of the property offers more of a cosy, evening room ambience complete with a most welcoming log burner. Upstairs, all four bedrooms are of double proportion and are served by an amazing shower room. The master bedroom includes an open en suite arrangement complete with roll top bath and freestanding taps all on an engineered natural finish floor.
Outside the aforementioned, lower courtyard has steps leading up to a further seating area and charming walled, garden with a storage shed to the far end. This garden has an amazing open feel for a city garden with an abundance of sky exposed to the south as the hillside drops away to the floating harbour below. At the front of the house is a small courtyard garden with easterly orientation, proving the ideal spot for a morning coffee.
In conclusion, this house represents a fantastic Victorian example, brimming with individual character and a mood that can only be fully appreciated through attending a viewing in person.
