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. Clifton College and the Sports Centre are both within walking distance whilst Durdham Downs is just a few yards away over the pelican crossing.
CLIFTON HOME | BASIC UPDATING
Woodbine Cottage is a rare opportunity to acquire a modest size home in one of the most sought after locations in the region located at the top of Whiteladies Road and facing Durdham Downs. The property would now benefit from basic updating and to potentially rearrange the layout but has huge potential subject to any consents.

IMPORTANT AUCTION INFORMATION
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 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.
The registration process is extremely simple – visit the Hollis Morgan auction website and click on the “Register to Bid” button.
The “Register to Bid” button can be found on the auction home page or on the individual lot listings.
