Royal York Crescent, in the historic heart of Clifton, was once the longest terrace in Europe. You can definitely picture Austen-esque heroines waving from the Regency wrought-iron balconies that run the length of the crescent. Oak floors and high ceilings stay true to the home's architectural roots and the huge sash windows present lovely views all the way to the Mendip Hills. The main living space is lined with full-length bookshelves, while the original fireplace gives it a stately-home feel. Fold-away doors open up to the modern kitchen, packed with everything you need for cooking from a simple meal to an intricate feast. In the master bedroom, French doors let in tons of light and lead to your own private patio. The meandering pathway through the walled garden is a scene from The Secret Garden. Clifton itself might be a city suburb, but it’s certainly got that village feel. Pastel-coloured buildings buzz with indie shops and cute cafes, and it’s just a short walk to the suspension bridge and Bristol Zoo if you want to tick off Bristol's main attractions.
* The living room feels welcoming and lived-in, but some might feel it’s a little cluttered
* There is no parking at this home and Clifton is notoriously difficult for parking, but luckily all the main attractions are within walking distance
