Cliftonwood 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.



The property has been a much loved home for many years and would now benefit from basic updating throughout with scope to create a fine period house with harbour views, mature garden and bright accommodation in this sought after residential enclave.


The property was originally listed with local agents for £685,000 and is now offered with a reduced guide price for sale by auction.

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.
