This is an imposing Georgian Grade II* listed mansion in the “Palladian” style with a magnificent front elevation of classical proportions in honey coloured stone with a pediment. The property is set well back from the road in its own grounds ( circa 0.60 Acres ) with a semi-circular drive providing access to the huge front door and exceptionally elegant entrance Hall. The exterior elevations and the roof have been extensively renovated leaving the purchaser to renovate the 9,800 sq foot interior to their own style and taste. Originally constructed in 1820 the property has a wealth of period features including some fine fireplaces and elegant and spacious rooms exuding the ambiance of a wealthy “Gentleman’s Residence” typical of this period of building. There are excellent size gardens to the front and rear of the property with the opportunity for further landscaping.


Apart from the “Chelsea” style atmosphere of the unique period village of Clifton, the property also enjoys easy access to some of the most prestigious shops in Bristol, several private and state schools as well as the university of Bristol, The Business areas of Bristol together with a plethora of restaurants and other leisure facilities including The Downs with its acres of open land bounded on the south western side by the spectacular Avon Gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge. There are high speed train services to London and other parts of the country from Temple Meads Station as well as Parkway Stations and the M4 and M5 motorway network is very easily accessible.

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.


The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.


Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £500 + VAT buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
