Abbots Leigh is a much sought-after village in a semi-rural setting with very easy access to Bristol City Centre and the motorway network with Junction 19 of the M5 only 3 miles away. The shops, schools, restaurants and other facilities of Clifton are all within easy reach across the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
There is a golf course and country club within 2 miles and Bristol International Airport is within about 10 miles.
Abbots Leigh House was originally built in about 1780 as the Dower House to Leigh Court. It is Grade II Listed and sits in a commanding position on high ground within the village with far-reaching, uninterrupted views across to the Welsh Hills. The property still retains covenants over the near fields in front of the house to protect these views.
The current owners have been refurbishing and renovating the house over a number of years. The result is an immaculately presented, light, bright and spacious family house with superb reception rooms, high ceilings and full-length sash windows of Georgian proportions in all
reception rooms. The two front reception rooms both have impressive bay windows that further enhance the feel of the property. All the main reception rooms have immaculate working fireplaces and both the kitchen and drawing room have wonderful views out across the manicured lawns to the paddocks beyond. The kitchen has an oil-fired, four-door Aga with a south east facing balcony and access down spiral stairs to a conservatory/garden room. The basement provides useful additional space for a large snooker room, extensive storage area, laundry room and a gymnasium and walk-in shower/wet room. A total of eight bedrooms and five bathrooms upstairs provide ample accommodation for a large family and the house
flows seamlessly throughout.
Across the courtyard and opposite the garage is the converted coach house which provides excellent secondary accommodation within a self-contained two storey cottage.
Gardens and Grounds
The gardens and grounds are particularly impressive and in immaculate order. They have been cleverly designed and landscaped over many years. The highlights include a rose garden, Venetian water garden, large croquet lawn and pergola occasionally opened to the public through the National Garden Scheme. Beyond the garden are two large paddocks complimented by two stables and a tack room with its own vehicular access from the south east and from Church Road.
From Clifton Suspension Bridge take the A369 towards the motorway and Portishead. In the middle of Abbots Leigh, opposite the George turn right into Church Road. As the houses on the left finish and the views across to the Welsh Hills appear you will find Abbots Leigh House on the right hand side.
