A Freehold parcel of land laid out as two walled flat terraces in close proximity to the Clifton Suspension Bridge providing a sunny south-westerly aspect with views of the Avon Gorge and River Avon, Clifton Suspension Bridge, Rownham Hill, Ashton Court and Dundry with spectacular vistas.


The Site is situated in a secluded and iconic setting off Princes Lane, a private road behind Avon Gorge Hotel and Princes Buildings in the conservation area of Clifton in Bristol and to the rear of 412 Hotwell Road, BS8 4BD.

Princes Lane is located just a few hundred yards away from the nearby Clifton Village which offers an eclectic range of shops, wine bars and restaurants and is within close proximity to the spectacular Avon Gorge with the historic Clifton Suspension Bridge providing a unique crossing to North Somerset. Bristol University and the Bristol Royal Infirmary are both within one mile.

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.

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 £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.

The exhibit will transport visitors back in time when the woodland was inhabited by European brown bears, Eurasian lynx, European wolves and wolverine, showing the effects of woodland loss on our native animals.
