If you are looking for somewhere extraordinary to live then you will be interested in this property. Although only ten minutes from the centre of this vibrant, thriving city you feel almost like you’re living in the country as you look out over a sea of treetops and the river sparkling in the sunlight below.
Fantastically easy access to the M32, M4 and 5 but with numerous lovely walks, along the river at Snuffmills, the hilltop grade 2 listed historic estate of Stokepark or the Victorian boating lake and park at Eastville Park, all real treasures and right on the doorstep. This is an area steeped in history - Oliver Cromwell stayed at Wicham Court which is on the opposite side of the valley when he was preparing to siege Bristol.
The Eastville shopping centre with large Tesco, M&S food hall, Boots Chemist, IKEA, Pizza Hut etc are just at the bottom of the hill. Fishponds Road High Street with lots of independent cafes, pubs, shops and supermarkets is up the hill opposite and there is a large Sainsburys and lots of retail shops near the MOD a short car journey away. There are also small shops locally which are well stocked. A petrol station and pub are two minutes down the road.
There are two very good Dr’s surgeries in Fishponds.
There are a number of good primary schools nearby and for secondary aged school children The Bristol Metropolitan is a short walk through the park and is very good and independent school Colton’s is just down the road.
This characterful cottage sits high up on red sandstone rock cliffs and has amazing views from every window - more or less all the windows face the valley. The huge timber oak frame balcony that stretches out into the branches of a mature oak tree gives the place a feeling of being in a tree house and becomes another outside room in summer when the big french doors are wide open. The kitchen is beautiful and welcoming and the AGA makes the house feel warm and cosy to come down to in the morning throughout the winter months. Not only is it amazing to cook on but it supplies all the hot water and dries your washing - I hang it up at night and it’s lovely and warm and dry in the morning. The kitchen has 3 huge walk in cupboards with plenty of shelving in each one. A gas hob and electric oven provide cooking facilities during the summer months when the AGA goes off. There is a dishwasher and brand new fridge freezer. A washing machine and dryer in another part of the house. The living room is big and spacious and the three bedrooms have beamed ceilings and a wash hand basin in each room.
