Full description

A superb family house, sitting in approx. 0.73 acres with a sweeping front drive and expanse of private garden. Rear drive with further OSP and garage. Self-contained two bedroom flat.

Deerhurst Priory is an exquisite and unique family house in Clifton, built in 1863 for a local solicitor in the Victorian Gothic Revival style. Principally arranged over three floors, with extensive basement cellars and a self-contained apartment on the lower ground floor, the property was extensively overhauled and refurbished in 1999. The exterior of the house is a wonderful combination of dressed Limestone, with local Brandon Hill rubble and decorative tiled bands. Of particular note is the beautifully carved Limestone corner oriel. Historically, the house was ‘Priorised’ by an American owner in the 1920s and then at the outbreak of World War II was requisitioned for military use in 1940. The footprint of the house, and its glorious south west facing gardens and grounds of circa 0.73 acres present an immensely rare opportunity to the market, and the chance to acquire one of the city’s finest homes.
