Landmark Bristol house with punk rock connections goes on sale

The cottage also has a cellar which can be used as a rehearsal space for future rock icons

A Bristol house with a huge mural of a punk legend painted on the outside has been put on the market.

The period cottage in the heart of Frenchay village has become something of a local landmark thanks to its colourful picture of Joe Strummer.

The mural of The Clash frontman was painted for the owner of Cellarman Cottage three years ago by artist Ollie Gillard of Gage Graphics.

Behind the illustration of Strummer, there are lyrics from the classic song London Calling, one of the singles that made The Clash famous.

The cosy end-of-terrace property on Frenchay Hill has one bedroom, a lounge with a woodburner and a new kitchen with oak work tops.

On the market for £275,000, it has already attracted plenty of interest, according to estate agents Hunters.

David Vincent of Hunters’ Downend office said: “We’ve had a lot of interest in the cottage and have viewings booked this weekend.

“The Joe Strummer mural has made the property something of a local landmark and most people interested in viewing it seem to like the artwork on the outside!”

Close to Frenchay Common and the River Frome, the property has been much improved by its current owner.

The double bedroom has a vaulted, beamed ceiling and a shower room. There’s also a cellar which could have several uses for the new owner - in keeping with the property’s rock and roll mural, it’s currently used by a band for rehearsals.
