Large Victorian home near green parks in the fabulous city of Bristol.

Our house is a 3-storey, Victorian terraced house, traditional for the area. We have a large kitchen/diner and two reception rooms, one with a woodburner and the other with a large TV, DVD and Xbox. There are 5 bedrooms with double beds, a home office, a family bathroom and downstairs loo and utility room. The garden gets the morning sunshine and has comfortable table and chairs for dining al fresco. We have one happy cat who just needs food and water.

The area is quiet and green, with easy walks to 3 lovely parks. There are buses to the centre of Bristol or it's an easy 30 minute walk along the river. There's plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby or in the centre. Access to the open countryside is easy with a car or bike (5 bikes to borrow).
