This is a unique house in the heart of Montpelier. I have feathered this nest with the wild imaginings of far flung places and vintage treasures. I rescued my home from rack and ruin because he was a happy house with a good vibe and because the garden had a miniture woodland. He has been renovated sympathetically and is full of character.
It is a comfortable home with a soul warming open fire in the light filled sitting room that bounces off the inlayed mirror work and a massive sofa to have a cuddle-a-thon. There is also a sofa bed that sleeps two and a single day bed with a pull out trundle bed sleeping two. On this floor there is another wonderful room full of books and two antique large single beds. The Rock and Roll Kitchen has hand carved peacock panel doors and a leopard print floor and everything you need to entertain and an infinatly bigger and better table than the one pictured!!! ( I dont have a tumble drier... we are a bit eco in this neck of the woods). There is a second bathroom on this floor with a power shower.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms. Three have double beds, and one a king sized bed. All are wrapped in vintage wallpapers and peppered with antiques One has an ensuite that can also be accessed from the hallway making it a family bathroom.
The garden is my favorite work of art. The mini wood is an English faery dell and there is a terrace for basking in the sun; ( the garden is South facing and sheltered) ; reading a book or entertaining. Giving it a drink if its parched will be appreciated.
Montpelier is the artists quarter in Bristol. The house is in the heart of it; you are two minutes walk to some of the best eats Bristol has to offer; award winning foodie restaurant Bell's Dinner, the cheap eats veggie tali cafe, the king of Indian Takeaways The Mela ( My favorite) and the best bakery Herberts. Another couple of minutes takes you up onto the infamous Stokes Croft where you can rock out at the Croft, Buzz around Hamilton House, feed your face at Pieminister, and thats just for starters. A ten minute stroll will take you up to Gloucester Road to its independent shops or down to the swanky commercial Cabolt Circus. In twenty you will reach the Harbourside and Clifton.
We are an automobile hop skip and a jump onto the M32. Bristol has it all; a thriving independant music scene, great galleries, culture for the vultures and fabulous arcitecture. We have circus and world famous theatre, burlesque and Banksies. If you need pointers then throw me your diary and I can fill it in. If you want to explore our amazing part of the country then Bristol is the perfect base. 10 minutes by train will deliver you into Bath or 30 minutes drive. You can be at the seaside in 40 minutes, Glastonbury is an hours drive, as are the Cotswolds and Wales. A couple of hours will take you to Stratford and Devon and London. Alternatively 1 hour and 40 minutes will take you to Paddington and into the gentle jaws of London. Parking is on the street and there is no charge.
Ok so. Security keep it shut ( not on the latch) and lock it.
Think about who you let into my house. Would you let them into yours? If it gets stolen, damaged or broken then you gotta pay.
