This is a substantial period town house (some 5300 sq ft), believed to have been built in 1720 by John Fry, the father of Joseph Fry the Bristol chocolate maker. The property offers all the grace and elegance of a fine period home with the beautifully proportioned interior arranged over three floors, retaining a wealth of inherent character and charm to include high skirtings, corniced ceilings, open fireplaces and good ceiling heights. The interior flows around an impressive hallway with four principal reception rooms, an open plan kitchen/breakfast room with utility room and magnificent orangery. The first floor boasts a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, guest bedroom with en suite, two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom, study and self contained laundry. Stairs from the landing rise up to two further attic double bedrooms, a bathroom and storeroom. Externally the large, walled rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn. There is parking for several cars on the gated driveway at the end of the garden which is accessed through the adjacent La Flambe car park.
