Hillside House, 1-2 Hillside, Cotham, Bristol, BS6 6JP


Hillside House is "Hidden Gem" comprising a stunning matching pair of Grade II listed Mansion Houses with parking and gardens - 10,226 Sq Ft
The property has been vacant since spring 2019 having previously been occupied by the Milestones Trust ( D1 ) for approximately 15 years but would have originally been two separate residential properties.
The property is positioned at the end of a private enclave ideally positioned betwixt Whiteladeis Road, The University and the BBC approached via a choice of two private gated driveways with parking for approximately a dozen vehicles ( but scope to increase ).
The accommodation is arranged over four floor and retains many of the original period features and grandeur expected of a property of this era.
Freehold and sold with vacant possession.


Cotham is amongst the most sought after and coveted locations in the city and remains an incredibly popular suburb. There are excellent amenities on the nearby Cotham Hill and Whiteladies Road which provide a wide range of supermarkets, shops, restaurants and pubs. A choice of primary and secondary schools are nearby and, in addition, there is excellent access to the City, as well as to Cribbs Causeway and the motorway network. The property is ideally located for both Bristol University and the Bristol Royal Infirmary.



The rarest of opportunities to purchase a property of this size and condition in such a sought after location and whilst now in need of complete modernisation following 15 years of institutional occupation we anticipate interest for a wide range of possible uses.


There is scope to create a truly epic family home with scope for accommodation on a scale to rival all others plus potential for staff accommodation etc.


Having been built as a pair of family Villas there is merit to reinstate the original layout and without doubt a high demand for the completed units.
Potential for self contained ground floor flats in addition to the main living space.


There is potential for a lateral flat scheme of luxurious apartments or a higher density flat development again with huge demand in place for the completed units for both rental and resale.


The property would make an excellent school, nursery, hospital or offices.

All subject to gaining the necessary consents.


Calum Melhuish ( Hollis Morgan New Homes ) can advise on potential resale values and GDV's for the various development options.
If you can provide us with a proposed scheme we will be able to advise on values etc



This property is Grade II listed and located in the Whiteladies Road Conservation Area.

As a care home, it is likely to have been altered internally (and perhaps externally) and any proposal to convert the building should seek to deliver conservation gain through removal of any unsympathetic additions; reinstatement of typical ‘original’ features and/or a more historic floor plan arrangement. The input of a conservation architect will be essential. Historically, the property would have been two separate dwellinghouses, and as such, there is potential to convert it back into two separate villas, or perhaps into flats (Use Class C3). The number and size of the flats possible will be dependent on the ability to alter the internal plan form, which will need to be explored with a heritage specialist, as well as compliance with the nationally described space standards.

The potential for a conversion to small (C4) or large (sui generis) Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO), and student housing, is deemed to be limited due to the high proportion of this type of accommodation within the area.
