You may have walked past a ‘dream’ house in Bristol

Full of fun, surprises and some wonderful stories, Laurie and Seb Pritchard-Lewin’s beautiful Bristol home has risen from the ashes to become a 21st century Georgian masterpiece complete with one of the city’s most distinctive annexed spaces. Located in Bristol’s historic Queen Square, this impressive Grade II* listed house has been the Welsh couple’s home since 2018.

Having been renovated more than once, the gorgeous five-bedroom townhouse offers five floors of accommodation and a stunning mix of modern and classic Georgian architecture that Laurie, 31, says she and Seb, 38, fell in love with instantly. “We had to push ourselves for a long time after we moved, and we felt so lucky to live here. We still do,” she said.

If walls could talk, this amazing property would have you on the edge of your seat. “The original house was burned down in the Bristol riots of 1831, so even the Georgian part is fairly new construction!” Lowry said.

The property later became a solicitor’s office and the original Georgian features, including marble fireplaces, were painted. The property became quite run-down until it came into the hands of a previous owner who began its transformation into the dream home it is today.

“When previous owner Francis took over the house, he lovingly returned it to its beginnings, restoring the original features and adding the modern extension,” Lowry said. “He has lived here for 20 years and has sensitively restored the property to its former elegance, explaining that the ‘architecture’ in the square is the best in Its category.

Following a traditional Georgian plan, the property features impressive painted Harlequin flooring in the entrance hall, a first floor drawing room with covered verandah, an impressive kitchen extension with oversized glazed doors, a mezzanine dining room and an impressive internal courtyard garden. Lowry called the city “a secluded paradise in the heart of Bristol”.
