6 bedroom property for sale

Guide price £2,500,000

With uninterrupted south-westerly views over the Downs - a substantial detached Italianate Victorian villa rich in period detail with sympathetically and carefully maintained interiors, gardens and gated parking.

A house of distinction and character - dating from circa 1879 and one of only a handful of detached family homes with such a commanding and pleasant outlook over the Downs - offering a vast protected parkland of over 400 acres.

Being sold for the first time since 1999 - houses of this quality are rare and change hands once in a generation. The current owners have cherished the house, meticulously preserving and enhancing in keeping with the original Victorian character.

Having classic, spacious and elegant accommodation of circa 5,000 sq. ft. retaining original period detail and charm throughout and enjoying a comfortable and civilised feel - flexible and could comfortably accommodate a multi-generational family or a couple without feeling overawed.

Sitting in private gardens of circa 120ft x 45ft carefully planted and meticulously cared for and linked to the main house by a rather charming garden room.

The house is set in a prime position on the edge of the Downs and also within easy reach of Whiteladies Road and Clifton Village with an array of shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, essential services and train link to Bristol Temple Meads.

Please note that the sellers have already secured their onward purchase and would welcome early interest.

Primarily laid out over three floors with flexible accommodation currently set up as 6 bedrooms, 5 receptions, kitchen/breakfast room and 3 bathrooms - easily adapted to provide more or less bedrooms and/or an informal flat/Airbnb with separate entrance to provide valuable income.
