Description
Offering exciting potential for some gentle refurbishment and extension (subject to planning), this deceptively well-proportioned, single storey semi-detached home is an opportunity not to be missed. Tucked away, in a quiet back water just off Filton Avenue equidistant of Horfield Common and Muller Road recreation ground, the property is ideally placed for access to a wide range of local amenities and has excellent access to the local transport network. The property is double glazed, has gas central heating and a level and enclosed rear garden as well as allocated parking for two vehicles. Early viewing comes highly recommended by the owner's sole agent

Location
Situated between Filton and Bishopston, Horfield (Anglo Saxon for 'dirty open field') was known as a nest of vagabonds until it was gentrified by a controversial Victorian land deal in the mid nineteenth century. Today it is known for its excellent transport links to the M4/M5 corridor (via the A4174 Bristol link road) and by rail to London Paddington via Abbey Wood (a wider choice of trains is from Bristol Parkway which is less than two miles away serving London, the Midlands, South Wales and the South West). The area offers easy access to the MOD at Abbey Wood, to Southmead Hospital, Airbus and Rolls Royce. An increasingly sought after residential district the area is within easy reach of the city centre by car or bus along the treasure trove of shops, bars and restaurants that make up the Gloucester Road (A38). Closer amenities to the property include a choice of the Coop or Tesco Express mini supermarkets (within 200 yards) as well a charming local pizzeria and the Horfield leisure centre with its gym, fitness classes and 25m pool. Local schools include Filton Avenue Primary and Junior or Fairfield High and Orchard Secondary schools. For those of a more sporting inclination the Memorial Ground (owned by Bristol Rovers Football Club) is nearby as is the Gloucester County cricket ground . As a parting fact Horfield was the birthplace of Hollywood actor Cary Grant in nearby Hughenden Road in 1904
