The Property

10 Alexandra road is an imposing semi detached period property that is available for the first time since 1979 and is arranged over two floors ( plus lower ground floor ) with off street parking and an enclosed rear garden.
The property has been a well cared for and actively maintained family home with additional accommodation on the lower ground floor ( informally arranged as 2 self contained flats ) and retains the majority of the charming period features including the original porters table in the hall, white marble entrance steps, working shutters in all principle rooms alongside traditional high ceilings and ornate cornice / ceiling roses.


The property is located in a quiet road just a few hundred yards from Whiteladies Road with its wide range of Shops, Pubs, Restaurants and independent Retailers whilst Clifton Down shopping centre is also within a few minutes walk. Clifton Village, Clifton College, Bristol University and the Bristol Royal Infirmary are both within one mile of this sought after enclave.

The Opportunity

Family home with potential

The property has been well maintained with a number of modern improvements including a kitchen that was fitted 6 years ago but never used and updated bathrooms but does now justify an coordinated overall plan of updating and modernisation to reflect a property in such a sought after and valuable location.
Similar properties have been valued in the region of £1.5 - £1.6m once renovated.

House + flat combo

The lower ground floor has been informally arranged as 2 self contained flats for a number of years and may provide an opportunity to combine a family home with an income producing flat or accommodation for relatives / dependants ( subject to consents )

Rental Appraisal

A unique opportunity to purchase a whole property with huge potential. Ther eis potential to develop the property with consent into flats. Depending on configuration value of flats would vary but assuming they were more than one beds then work on principle of £500 per room.

The most likely outcome if successful in bidding for the property would be to live in the properties top to floors and formalise the basement arrangements into a three bedroom flat which if fully renovated and modernised could produce and income of £1800,00 pcm (£21,600p/a) This would appeal to families, professional sharers and students alike.

Buyer's Premium

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is always payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.

Guide Price

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price

The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
