3 DOUBLE BEDROOM CLIFTON FLAT
Due to the location, bedroom sizes and value for money, this 3 double bedroom flat, in the heart of Clifton, is a rare opportunity. It is sure to attract interest from owner occupiers, student-parent buyers and investors, attracted by a potential rental income of £1,400pm/£16,800pa and a low maintenance property.
The exterior and interior of the building were totally refurbished towards the end of 2010. Over £65k was invested in refurbishing this Grade II listed building, including a new warm' roof, loft insulation, internal and external decoration, rewiring, a new fire alarm system with emergency lighting and timber-framed double-glazed windows, with Listed Building Consent.
Perfectly situated equidistant from Clifton Village, Whiteladies Road and the Clifton Triangle, with their wide variety of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Close to Bristol University buildings, the BBC, Bristol Royal Infirmary, Park Street, the City Centre and the Waterfront.
Situated on the top floor, the flat benefits from having natural light to all rooms, pleasant views, extra floor space (over the stairwell), useful loft access and the advantage of having no one living above.
Large, beautifully kept communal gardens, which benefit from being in a conservation area and being recognised as a historic garden.
It is very rare to find a property in such an enviable location, with 3 such well-proportioned double rooms, at this price in Clifton.
Richmond Terrace is such a superb place to live, right in the heart of Clifton. With Clifton Village, the Clifton Triangle and Whiteladies Road all within about a 5 minute walk the location could not be better. Each offers a wonderful variety of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants and it is such a sociable area.
What's more you have Park Street, the City Centre and the Waterfront all within about a 20 minute walk. The flat is also in a lovely green area, with Victoria Square and Bird Cage Walk on the doorstep, and Christ Church Green, the Downs, Leigh Woods and the Ashton Court Estate all within easy walking distance.
To top it all off, the communal garden must be one of the largest, most secluded and attractive in Clifton with a pond, allotments, picnic benches, a wonderful array of flora and fauna, and various fruit trees. It provides a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet without having to worry about doing any of the maintenance! With the Terrace on 3 sides and a high wall with gated entrance on the other, it is a private space for residents only and a good way to get to know your friendly neighbours.
Within the flat, the big advantages of being on the top floor are that the flat is safe, light and warm (especially with the new warm' roof, double-glazed timber windows and loft insulation), with no neighbours living above. You also have the added benefit of an extra room due to the extra floor space [over the stairwell].
The building is expertly managed by Hillcrest Estate Management, just off Whiteladies Road, who do a superb job, as demonstrated by the excellent standard of the renovation carried out in 2010, both externally [roof, windows, guttering, pipework and redecoration] and internally [rewired, carpeted and decorated communal areas].'
