Loft House, College Road

2 Bed Maisonette  | £395,000

Property description

A stunning circa 900sqft split level two bedroom maisonette with a private entrance, allocated parking space and a courtyard terrace. This beautifully presented maisonette is set within the prestigious Grade II listed Loft House development. Formally an orphanage built between 1849-1870 and then a City of Bristol college building, the apartment retains high ceilings and large sash windows which offer a great contrast against the modern interior fittings. The development is situated on the borders of Ashley Down and Bishopston, close to the nearby local independent shops, cafés and restaurants along the Gloucester Road, the Gloucestershire County Cricket Ground and the popular St Andrews Park. The property is also near to both Ashley Down and Brunel Field Primary Schools and enjoys direct transport links into the City Centre and the M32 and M4/M5. The property is split between the new building and part of the original building which has been sympathetically modernised and is presented to an exceptionally high standard throughout. The contrasts between modern and original features allow for a balance of elegant contemporary style whilst keeping its period charm. The apartment is situated in a prime position accessed via a 'residents only' lane into a private entrance on the ground floor of the building. Internally the property comprises; a large kitchen/dining/living area, two bedrooms, an en-suite to the master and a bathroom. The kitchen/dining/living room measures an impressive 7.7m x 3.8m and features a c.15' high ceiling, three large sash windows with secondary glazing, engineered timber flooring and a modern fitted kitchen. The contemporary kitchen by German manufacturer Leicht incorporates a stainless steel sink and mixer tap, integrated Bosch appliances to include; a ceramic hob, multifunctional electric oven, dishwasher and a 70/30 fridge/freezer. The master bedroom is situated on the first floor and has access to an ensuite shower room which comprises; a walk in shower cubicle with a glazed shower screen, a back to wall w.c with chrome flush plate and a wall hung wash hand basin, heated towel rail and shaver point. A second bedroom is situated on the lower level, the room features a part vaulted ceiling which accentuates the large double glazed sash window which draws your eye upwards. The main bathroom is also positioned on this level and comprises; a panelled bath with shower over, a glazed shower screen, slate tiled flooring, porcelain herringbone wall tiles, a back to wall w.c and wall hung wash hand basin. The bathroom is completed by a double glazed window, a heated towel rail and a extractor fan. The private entrance is at the end of a residents only lane which allows for a sense of privacy and seclusion from the neighbouring properties. The patio terrace has a south-easterly aspect which enjoys the sun throughout the day into the summer months. The property has an allocated parking space and shares a communal bike store and gardens which are regularly maintained by the property management company.
