Lower Failand is amongst one of North Somerset's most sought after locations due to its access into Clifton Village and Bristol City Centre with its many shops, bars, restaurants and amenities. Lower Failand itself is an active village, of largely family houses and boasts a Village Hall, local pub, post office and general store.
There is also excellent access to junction 20 of the M5, Bristol Temple railway station (London Paddington in 90 minutes), and Bristol International Airport offering an extensive range of flights.



The stunning location and privacy afforded by the 4 acre site demands a "Grand Designs" style property is built on the site.
The property has the benefit of a lapsed planning permission to erect a 1614 Sq Ft Bungalow ( Refer to Legal Pack ) and interested parties are urged to make their own investigations with the local authority.


“Planning application 11/P/1817/F was obtained but never implemented. The erection of the recent garages in or around 2012 were not believed to require planning permission. Both parts of the garage were originally going to have pitched roofs, but on the advice of the planning officer, it was agreed that only part of the garage should have a pitched roof. No further planning history is available and Buyers should make all prudent enquiries.”

The above Statement is given by the Seller in order to assist any buyer. Please note that no specific enquiries or investigations have been carried out by either the Seller nor by Porter Dodson LLP or the members of that firm and any buyer should rely entirely upon their own investigations and enquiries.
