Property description

Dating back to 1768 this fabulous detached cottage offers comfortable accommodation arranged over three floors and is ideally suited to the downsizing buyer or professional couple. Situated little more than a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of Whiteladies Road its position is surprisingly secluded and private whilst enjoying far reaching views over the city towards the Cotswold escarpment. 

It has undoubtedly evolved over the past 250 years, with additions built here and there over time, all of which add to the immense character. Approached via double opening gates on a secure entry system, the natural stone path leads through the garden to the front door and directly into the kitchen/diner which together with the utility space occupies the ground floor. The kitchen is welcoming, and well equipped with direct access to the garden. A returning staircase rises to the first floor with luxurious shower room positioned at half landing level. The sitting room is positioned on this floor and enjoys Georgian proportions with twin sash windows enjoying views to the south, also beautiful fireplace and arched recess. To the rear of the sitting room is a small study with skylight set into a pitched roof. The top floor provides two double bedrooms, both with far reaching views over the city and countryside beyond. This floor also benefits from a dressing room with WC, vanity unit. In addition there is a walk in wardrobe accessed via the landing .

At circa 60 ft the garden is a substantial for the type of property and the area. With lime-wash wall, olive tree border and attractive natural stone patio area to the front of the house has a sheltered Mediterranean feel and is exceedingly low maintenance. At the side of the path to the front gate sits the tandem length garage. Steps lead up to a terrace above the garage with glass and steel balustrade providing an elevated dining/relaxing area with far reaching views. The garage itself is accessed via an electric up and over door from Woodbury Lane and has power, water and lighting with space for two reasonable sized cars parked nose to tail.  

Location: Whilst situated on the Redland side of Whiteladies Road the house retains a Clifton postcode and address. Situated on a no through road and with an almost hidden approach it really is a tucked away backwater and yet within 30 seconds walk is the hustle and bustle of Whiteladies Road. The 400 acres of Durdham Downs are within two minutes walk and provide further peace and quiet if required. Within two minutes walk are numerous shops, supermarkets, bar, pubs, restaurants and even a gym. 

Directions; We strongly recommend approaching on foot! From our Clifton office continue up Whiteladies Road and turn right into Woodbury Lane immediately in front of the Jersey Lilly public house. Continue down the lane keeping an eye out for the Grove Cottage sign on the left. The house is set somewhat unassumingly behind twin timber gates set into a high level wall.
