A well-appointed family home with a cottage, landscaped gardens and its own vineyard whilst occupying an elevated position enjoying a stunning south-facing and far-reaching views of Clifton Suspension Bridge. Clifton Village is easily accessible over the Downs. In all about 3.1 acres. EPC: E
Located down a private drive, Avonwood occupies a stunning south-facing position with wonderful uninterrupted views to the south up the Avon Gorge. The house has been meticulously looked after by the current owners and is presented in very good order. The heating system was overhauled in 2017.
The house is arranged over four storeys with an excellent balance of formal entertaining and family rooms. The main rooms all face south over the Gorge. The main reception rooms are spread over the ground and garden floors, with access to the full-length balcony or veranda and gardens. The drawing room is of particular note, with sash windows onto the balcony and a large sitting area. The dining room and kitchen / breakfast room also face south, providing plenty of natural light and great views. The lower ground floor has been largely arranged as a leisure floor, with cinema, steam room and gym. There is also access to the gardens from here. The master bedroom suite spans most of the south facing elevation with an excellent guest bedroom suite beyond.
The grounds are landscaped and terraced to provide the maximum balance of space and seclusion, with a terrace and BBQ patio outside the house. Further afield are “wild” areas of flower meadow and shrubs, interspersed with walks through the woods.
The vineyard has been planted with Chardonnay grapes and historically provides about 1,200 to 1,500 bottles a year.
The Cottage is ideal for staff, letting out or as a studio.
Avonwood is located on a quiet road within the sought after suburb of Sneyd Park, just moments from the open parkland of the renowned Clifton Downs. The property faces south and directly overlooks the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Avon Gorge.
