A unique and stylish two bedroom home on Kensington Road in Redland. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a contemporary fitted kitchen with hi-gloss cream and plum coloured units which is finished off with a granite work top. This kitchen area links neatly into a timber framed conservatory dining area with a wood floor. Glazed doors then open this space on to an outside deck seating area which is perfect for bbq's and small gatherings. There is a further area forming part of the property boundary which is used as a bike shed and parking space for 1 vehicle - very valuable for an inner city property. On the opposite side of the ground floor is a double bedroom with wall lights and a wood floor which sits next to a smartly tiled shower room with white suite.
From the hallway a staircase leads up on to the first floor into a light and bright open plan living area with solid oak floor, sky light and a Danish wood framed glazed door on to Juliet balcony. Adjacent to this living space is a further room which is suitable for a second bedroom or an office space which also has a Juliet balcony sharing tree top views. The property is finished to a high standard throughout with solid oak floors and doors, designer vertically mounted radiators, spot lights and double glazed sash windows.
4a Kensington Road is a one-off bespoke property in a leafy and convenient location sandwiched between Whiteladies Road, Gloucester Road, with easy walking access to Redland train station and Cotham Grove Park.
4a Kensington Road was originally built in the 19th Century as a gas Governors house. It started life as an industrial machinery store which was then converted to a studio apartment. Re-developed within the last 10 years, the house is situated just off of the popular and eclectic Chandos Road, within easy walking distance of Bristols social hubs of Whiteladies Road (5 mins) and the Triangle (10 mins).
The house backs onto a single railway line which is extremely quiet and only operates during daytime hours. The views to the rear and along Kensington Road itself are expansive due to the architects use of French doors and glass Juliet balconies. This is part of the overall theme to maximise light within the property with the use of sky lights in the living and dining rooms, giving a sense of expansive airiness to both floors of the house.
Although modern, the house was designed to reflect the Georgian and Victorian buildings of Redland, whilst the rear of the building is cedar clad and continues the contemporary theme set with the timber structured dining area and decking. This stylish and distinct living space, adjoined to the kitchen, adds a further dimension to a house that is brilliantly suited to entertaining.
