Brunswick Road, Gloucester, Gloucestershire
Stunning, Grade II listed Regency town house offering accommodation over five floors, currently offering four bedrooms and four reception rooms, although this is a house that offers maximum flexibly. Period features, charm and character throughout, walled rear garden and detached double garage
Welcome to 51 Brunswick Road, a stunning example of a Grade II listed Regency family home, that in recent years has undergone renovation to the main body of the home and so today, presents a wonderful three double bedroom family home with accommodation arranged over five floors, offered for sale with No Onward Chain and subject to planning permission, offers the ability to create a self-contained, onebedroom basement apartment.
Located in the heart of the city, the property is minutes from the city centre, Gloucester Quays and the worldfamous Gloucester Docks. Gloucester Quays, created in recent years, is a hub of activity and enjoys an array of shops from national retailers, alongside restaurants, bars and a cinema.
Furthermore, Gloucester enjoys a wealth of schools which include Kings, Denmark Road for Girls, The Crypt and Ribston Hall. The city is surrounded by beautiful countryside, including Robinswood Hill Country Park, and access for the commuter can be found onto the M5 from Junction 11 to Junction 12, giving both North and Southbound access.
Returning to the home, the accommodation is well proportioned, with all of the five floors flowing neatly into one another. Stepping into the entrance hall gives a sense of what one will enjoy as you walk through the property; painted wooden floorboards, intricate cornicing and high ceilings.
From the entrance hall, two doors to your right take you into the two main rooms on this floor. The first being the formal dining room which is found to the front of the house and has a feature fireplace which gives a wonderful focal point to the room.
An opening to the rear of the dining room leads you neatly into the modern fitted kitchen which benefits from granite work surfaces, a wealth of fitted cupboards and a host of integrated appliances.
From the kitchen, a further door leads neatly to an elongated room which is currently being used as an office, but we feel that the next owners may well redevelop the room into a separate utility/cloakroom area.
The final room to the floor is that of the garden room which is found at the end of the entrance hall and as one would expect, enjoys an elevated view over the garden.
Moving upstairs, the 1st floor houses the first double bedroom, located to the rear of the home whilst at the front, the living room features a central chimney breast where a wood burning stove is housed. The room is also flooded with natural light, due to the two floor to ceiling sash windows which lead neatly onto the balcony, whilst also allowing one to enjoy the view over the neighbouring Brunswick Square.
Moving upwardly, the second floor features the master bedroom, which like the room below, enjoys plenty of light and extended views over the square and the city. Located behind the master bedroom is a walk in wardrobe and the first of the two bathrooms the home enjoys.
The bathroom is very much in keeping with the style and property era and features a four-piece white suite.
Moving up to the top floor, there is another double bedroom located to the front of the property whilst to the rear is the second family bathroom.
All the floors are linked by the cantilever stairwell which is highly impressive. All the landings are also very light, and this is due to the elongated window which cascades over the floors, also giving a wonderful overview of the garden and city beyond.
ROOM TO IMPROVE...
The final floor is that of the basement level and it is here that we feel there is the option to create a one-bedroom self-contained apartment, subject to obtaining the relevant planning permission. In total there are three separate rooms. The first two rooms are of an almost equal size with the front room having a window, providing natural light and could potentially be an open plan living/kitchen.
The room at the back could then become the bedroom area, whilst a door at the back of the room leads to the final room in the property. Measuring over 8.00m in length and benefiting from light, power and plumbing, this could so easily become the utility room and bathroom for the newly created apartment if one was inclined to use the basement space for this purpose.
Outside, there is an enclosed walled garden which is full of plants and shrubs and a mature apple tree. At the head of the garden is the detached garage which has a pedestrian access from the garden whilst at the front entrance, there is an up and over door to the front of the garage.
