Worlds End House is believed to be one of the oldest houses in Bristol and is thought to have originally been a 17th century merchants garden house and later a farm house and is Grade ll listed as a tribute to this history and period charm.
This house occupies an incredibly discrete position nestled amongst the colourful slopes of Cliftonwood. It has surprisingly large accommodation at just over 3000 sq. Feet and is predominantly arranged over three floors. It occupies a stunning yet tranquil position and has a true 'country feel' with much of its outlook over greenery or the Bristol harbour. These incredible harbour views include highlights such as the ss Great Britain, Bristol dockyards, Dundry Hill and Lansdown Hill in the distance.
The current owners have thoughtfully enhanced this historic property. It has well proportioned rooms with the principal areas enjoying the southerly aspect and spectacular views through the house's many large sash windows.
The ground floor accommodation enjoys a central hallway with a large open plan kitchen/dining room. As with many of the principal rooms, this area boasts wonderful flagstone floors, large double sash windows and open fireplaces - to name but a few of the building's stunning period features.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of units with wooden worktops and space for a large range cooker and fridge. This is supplemented by larder and a rear utility room. The adjacent drawing room is triple aspect equipped with central fireplace and stunning Georgian cabinetry. The main dining room is very atmospheric with spectacular floors and ceilings as well as a warming fireplace. A utility room, wetroom and access to the cellar conclude this floor.
The first floor has a flexible layout and currently contains a second reception room, which enjoys a further elevated harbour view and is again triple aspect. There is also a master suite with triple sash windows and large adjacent en suite bathroom. There is a further guest room to this floor.
The second floor is predominantly used as two bedrooms and would make an ideal teenage floor, with two double bedrooms, sitting room with kitchenette and family bathroom.
From the central hallway, a winding stone stairs leads down to the large open vaulted cellar which in turn provides access on to a side courtyard garden and greenhouse. The cellar has great potential, with good head height and wine storage bins.
Discreetly positioned on the slopes of Cliftonwood the property can only be seen from the South side of the river, and this environment provides a tranquil countryside atmosphere. There is vehicular access from the end of Southernhay Avenue through electric gates to a single garage (complete with pitched roof with storage space) There is further pedestrian access via Bellevue Crescent - which also has residents parking and White Hart Steps which lead from the house down to Hotwells Road and onto Bristol's re-generated harbourside. From here there is level access to Bristol Hippodrome and the many other amenities Bristol has to offer. Nearby are a range of many excellent private and state schools including qeh, bgs and Bristol Cathedral School as well as many major city centre employers.
A Little Waitrose can be accessed via Jacobs Wells Road to the Clifton Triangle. Here you will find a range of restaurants, bars and cafés. The alternative shopping area is Clifton Village where you will find a number of boutique shops, independent restaurants and eateries. Bristol town centre and harbourside are very nearby and Bristol Temple Meads is 1.4 miles away, providing high-speed trains to London Paddington in 90 minutes. Cliftonwood itself is a much-loved neighbourhood of Clifton, known for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere, sense of community, celebrated street parties and great local pubs.
The property has a landscaped garden with low walls and select planting, which frames the stunning views. The meandering and elevated path leads through to the garage and in turn to one of the pedestrian access routes to the property. There is a charming summer house from which to enjoy al fresco dining and views of the evening sun setting over the harbour.
The flagstone lower courtyard, accessed from the main garden or cellar, is a tranquil space with a central pond and a covered seating area.
