Occupying an elevated prestige position in the sought after York Gardens in Clifton Village, this opulent, versatile family home offers an array of characterful rooms with endless possibilities to create further space. In need of modernisation and opposite the well regarded Royal York Crescent, this fabulous home has been occupied by the same family for some fifty years. Located in a conservation area, the property retains an array of unspoilt features typical of it’s origin including high ceilings, sash windows, some with stained glass, ornate fireplaces and beautiful bay windows. The rear of the house allows beautiful views towards the Harbourside and beyond whilst the front has the added benefit of off street parking for two cars.
The versatile accommodation is positioned mainly over four floors with a light and spacious basement creating the opportunity for a self contained apartment/offices or games rooms. The impressive main entrance is equipped with traditional Victorian tiled flooring leading to the substantial reception area feeding several rooms including a sitting room, dining room, formal drawing room and kitchen with cloak room off.
A private doorway allows access down to the basement level where there are a number of rooms that are currently un-utilised together with a garden room and utility with access to the rear garden.
The traditional wooden staircase leads to the spacious first floor feeding four bedrooms, three offering an abundance of light and space each with its own personality, together with the family bathroom and separate cloakroom. Several of the bedrooms are equipped with a sink creating the possibility of future en-suite facilities. On the top floor a magnificent 28ft room with wooden floors and feature fireplace is ideally placed to create a further reception room with the most spectacular, far reaching views together with an additional two double bedrooms and a single bedroom ideal for a study/walk in wardrobe.
York Gardens is located directly opposite Clifton's famous Royal York Crescent and is an address held in extremely high regard. This is owed to the uniquely convenient proximity to Clifton Village and the breath-taking example of Victorian and Georgian architecture including some of the city's most prized and widely admired terraces and squares. The variety of shops, boutiques and restaurants in Clifton Village are close by as well as several bus routes providing easy city centre access. Indeed, Bristols City Centre itself is within only one and a half miles allowing access to the national motorway network via the M32 and rail links to London Paddington from Temple Meads mainline station. The vast expanse of Clifton's Downs are within quarter of a mile as is the historic landmark of Brunel's world famous suspension bridge spanning the Avon Gorge. The area is particularly well served for schooling in both state and private sectors with Clifton College, QEH and Bristol Grammar School all within one and a half miles.
A private driveway with off street parking for two cars together a well stocked courtyard style garden and steps to the basement are located to the front of the house whilst further gardens are positioned to the rear. A paved seating area for al-fresco dining over looks the garden encompassed by mature shrubs and pretty trees. The property benefits from a right of way behind adjoining properties for access to the rear for any maintenance/works.
