Split level penthouse found across the upper two floors of this Grade II Listed conversion ( 2003 ) found on Sion Hill with 2 bedrooms, roof terrace, allocated parking, communal gardens and exceptional views.

A kitchen/breakfast/living room offers a perfect place to entertain with a generous footprint and fabulous views, serviced by an attractive kitchen, complete with a range of integrated appliances. From here French doors open to a unique and spacious roof terrace which enjoys the sun throughout much of the day.

To the rear and side of Sion Spring House there are communal gardens which have been landscaped and beautifully designed providing a range of established flower beds, a barbecue, a large patio area and boules pitch, all for the sole use of Sion Spring House and The St Vincent's Rock development.
Private to the penthouse, a spectacular roof terrace with a south/south westerly sunny orientation and views towards Brunel's Suspension Bridge which enjoys the sun throughout much of the day.

The property is situated in undoubtedly one of Cliftons prime residential roads on the outskirts of the village close to a wide range of high street shops, boutiques and restaurants. Bristol City Centre and M32 link to the M4/M5 motorway network is approximately 2 miles travelling distance. The nearby Clifton Suspension Bridge provides access to a wide range of recreational facilities such as Ashton Court Estate, David Lloyd, Long Ashton and Bristol and Clifton Golf Clubs to name but a few. There is a wide selection of both private and state schooling within the immediate vicinity including Clifton College, Clifton High School and Christchurch Primary School.
REDUCED PRICE FOR AUCTION
The property was previously listed for sale at £725,000 and is now reduced and offered with vacant possession.
SCOPE TO UPDATE
The property has been well maintained but there is now scope to upgrade the kitchen and open plan living space given the 5 star location and views.
There may be scope ( subject to consents ) to enclose the roof terrace to create more accommodation.
A rare opportunity to buy a flat in an iconic location. The flat would let extremely easily and would attract corporate clients relocating senior executives to Bristol. The flat would also appeal to people downsizing who are looking to buy in the BS6, 8 and 9 areas. There is potential to update the property internally. With consents there would be potential to possibly increase number of bedrooms by covering part or all the roof terrace.
If updated internally the property would rent for circa £2000.00pcm (£24,000 p/a) which if purchased at guide price would yield around a 4% return.

For full details of the EPC please refer to the online legal pack.
Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
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.
