The elegant, Grade II listed 4 Berkeley Crescent exudes an air of sophistication and classical Georgian charm. The handsome, red-brick, late 18th century façade is adorned with beautiful period window boxes and overlooks the delightful communal garden. The welcoming hallway, bathed in light and space, offers a plethora of period features. An ornate Georgian archway catches the eye, framed with intricate detailing to complement the equally sumptuous cornicing that surrounds the hall. In contrast, post-modernist Cubist style tiled flooring adds a contemporary flair. To the left the open-plan kitchen/dining room consists of two distinct zones with the beautiful original wooden floor boards running throughout. The bespoke fitted kitchen offers breath-taking iconic Bristol vistas over such landmarks as the Wills Memorial Building and Browns Restaurant, modelled on the Doge's Palace in Venice. Generous period windows, boasting the original mottled panes of glass, capitalise on the abundant natural light. Views of the charming communal garden can also be enjoyed from this aspect. The ceiling here, as with the hallway, exhibits phenomenally detailed and ornate cornicing, painstakingly restored by hand to its former glory. Light wooden worktops blend subtly into duck-egg blue units and house an array of integrated appliances, comprising a Neff fan oven, Hotpoint dishwasher and space for a large American style fridge-freezer. A central kitchen island offers yet more workspace as well as an integrated Smeg gas hob. A fabulous gas-fried Aga takes centre stage partnered with a beautiful period lime-stone surround and black-granite hearth. The dining area, with original working fireplace and slate hearth, provides rear views and access over the private courtyard garden. Just off the hall lies the downstairs cloakroom and butler’s pantry, with an abundance of shelving and storage. Perhaps the most fascinating feature of all is the original spyhole periscope, covertly hidden within the handsome Georgian staircase, which would’ve allowed the staff to view guests arriving at the front door. The half-landing offers yet more intrigue, via access out onto an ingenious sun terrace purportedly converted from a former bathroom. The terrace is fully decked with sash windows creating the perfect fusion of outdoor and indoor space, whilst remaining the perfect suntrap and outdoor dining area. The sensational first floor drawing room benefits from excellent ceiling height with further lavish cornicing, complemented by a beautiful working, feature fireplace with white marble surround. As with the rest of the property, the large sash windows are adorned with the original working shutters and offer exquisite Bristol views. Adjacent to the drawing room is the fantastically versatile second reception room, currently in use as the study but easily transformed into a fifth bedroom. The fireplace forms the focal point of this generous space, framed with integrated book-shelving in the alcoves to either side. Ascending to the second floor, the charming master bedroom offers sash windows, a cast-iron fireplace and built-in wardrobes. The adjacent second bedroom is utilised as the opulent dressing room, complete with integral shelving and storage and ensuite Jack-and-Jill bathroom, also accessed from the landing. The New England style, three piece bathroom offers exposed character floorboards and beautiful sash window. A rainfall shower can also be found on this level, conveniently separated from the main bathroom. The third floor offers two further double bedrooms, both with cast-iron feature fireplace and fantastic Bristol views. Serving these two rooms is another four-piece bathroom with separate double shower.
In addition to the principal residence, 4 Berkeley Crescent offers a two bedroom courtyard apartment below, housing the uncovered original Georgian stove. Complete with two double bedrooms, a separate kitchen and living space, bathroom and plenty of st
Berkeley Crescent was originally constructed as an exclusive extension to Berkeley Square at the turn of the 19th century. Today a myriad of boutiques, bars and restaurants can all be found on the adjacent Clifton Triangle and Park Street, shortlisted for the Great British High Street of the Year Award 2014. Other nearby landmarks include: Bristol University, Bristol Cathedral, The Hippodrome, Bristol Old Vic Theatre, St Georges Hall, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery and The Central Library. Brandon Hill Park is also just a short distance away, ideal for enjoying acres of open parkland.
A southerly facing courtyard garden reveals the perfect seating area to enjoy the late evening sun. A telephone operated electric gate secures the private parking with space for approximately four cars. Access is also granted to the shared communal garden to the front of the terrace.
