4, Leigh Road, Clifton,
This is a fine example of a quintessential semi-detached Victorian villa located in a quiet residential road in the famous and highly desirable area of Clifton. This imposing property stands well back from the road and the generously Bayed front elevation has a combination of local stone with attractive Bath stone dressings which immediately provides the house with an impression of style and quality so typical of the period. The, superbly modernised and elegant accommodation contains a wealth of original features such as original ceiling cornices, period fireplaces and exposed floorboards in appropriate rooms, is principally arranged over two floors with the addition of a lower ground providing a Games room, garage and storage.
The living spaces radiate from the wide Entrance Hall with the Dining Room leading to a streamlined kitchen culminating in a very fine conservatory whilst the first floor provides a magnificent master bedroom as well as other bedrooms. To a certain extent some of the accommodation can be flexibly used to suit the needs of the occupier. There is a secluded enclosed rear garden with decking, lawns and herbaceous borders and the front garden is well stocked to provide a green framework to the house.
Clifton and the surrounding areas, with its Victorian and Georgian architecture, are amongst the most sought after locations in the City. The area offers charm alongside excellent amenities with independent shops, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants to be found on both Whiteladies Road and Clifton Village including Clifton Down shopping Centre. The Downs offers four hundred acres of green public space whilst Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge provides a gateway to the Ashton Court Estate with its woodlands, mountain bike trails and walks whilst there is excellent access to the exciting Harbourside district, the City Centre and Temple Meads.
