Vendor comments I commenced building in 2005, well if going through the trials and tribulations of planning procedure amount to commencing. I worked closely with Frank Docherty in designing my perfect townhouse, having previously lived in a 16th century village bakery, the desire to now live in a modern house was alluring. Of prime importance was the creating of a naturally light space for my, then student, daughter and myself. I loved the irregularity of the old house and wanted to create an equally organic feel to the interiors, hence introducing a few curves in the way of rounded walls. I also love early/mid modern 20th century design, and think we captured some of that feel as well. The idea of the downstairs bedroom was that it provided an independent space for my daughter - that her comings and goings would simply be distant murmurings - and that the living space would be our mutual family area. The top floor bedroom was always a comfortable space, there is nothing nicer than coffee and croissants on a weekend summers' morning with the doors flung open. It always surprised me how much birdsong I could hear in town, and despite being deeply urban, how private it felt. The views from the balcony allow eyes to stretch and is a wonderful vantage point when the balloon festival takes place, and New Years fireworks pop over Bristol. Despite my initial misgivings regarding the opposite flats, I very soon stopped noticing them and became acquainted with several people who owned apartments there.The third bedroom was always available to friends, but was usually our study and benefitted from a view of the rear gardens. Always very peaceful and a good space to work. The underfloor heating provides a comfortable natural heat, which I found to be more economical as well. I enjoyed the fact that no walls were limited by the presence of radiators, so it made decorating, and placing of pictures and furniture far simpler. The integrated garage was a prerequisite for a country-mouse, in order to simply drive in and close the portcullis. I very quickly learned that walking to town of an evening was not only convenient but enjoyable, 10 minutes to the city centre, and not at all the city battleground I had previously imagined. I'm delighted to see that it is currently being utilised as a music room by my current tenants.On deciding to move to France, now four years ag, I was really torn by the need to rent out my loved sanctuary. Such misgivings have been unfounded, and I have found that the house has never remained empty, and the different tenants have enjoyed living there as much as myself. It is with some sadness that I shall leave No 14, but I now have other adventures to pursue.
