This is without doubt the most spectacular residential building opportunity to come to the market in North West Bristol for many years.
The plot comprises nearly half an acre (0.44 acres) of prime residential building land in Sneyd Park, Bristol and is located between Mariners Drive and Old Sneed Park.
It is approached via an exclusive and private 200ft driveway which sits between 23 and 25 Old Sneed Park, one of the most prestigious roads in this highly sought-after area.
The secluded level plot is surrounded by mature trees with little visibility of the surrounding homes, giving it unique privacy and a semi rural feeling despite being within a few minutes of City conveniences.


Sneyd Park, as its’ name implies, used to be an ancient deer park going back to the 1200’s. Over the centuries the area has been slowly developed and is now recognised as the most prestigious residential area of Bristol.
The plot lies between the borders of Sneyd Park and Stoke Bishop where many of the substantial detached family homes stand in their own large plots and are mainly Stride built reflecting the unique quality of Sneyd Park. Its’ quiet and leafy streets are a short walk from the Clifton/Durdham Downs and its acres of open land and views of the well known Avon Gorge and the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Whilst the Old Sneed Park Nature Reserve is also near by.
Stoke Bishop village provides a range of eclectic local shops and a restaurant, whilst a little further away the busy shopping village of Westbury on Trym or Whiteladies Road, Clifton provide a wider selection of shopping facilities.
Shirehampton Golf Club is a short drive away and quick access onto the Portway ensure other sporting facilities such as David Lloyd Centre, Clifton College sporting facilities in Abbots Leigh are only minutes away.
Sneyd Park is also well within easy reach of all the main schools of Bristol both public and private, as well as easy access to the M4/M5 and the business parks of South Gloucestershire and the shopping facilities of Cribbs Causeway. The main train stations serving Bristol are Temple Meads and Parkway and can be reached within half and hours drive.



This is probably the last available plot of any considerable size in which to build in one of the West Country’s finest suburbs.
We understand that all main services are available in the road
Full Planning permission has been granted for a stylish 5 bedroom family home.’
