Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Highly sought after Leigh Woods


An impressive detached family house constructed originally in the 1950s and refurbished extensively during the intervening decades. The property provides an exceptional footprint with adaptable accommodation and stands centrally within the established plot with elevated views over parkland and the Ashton Court Estate. The rear garden is private and of particular note includes a heated swimming pool. Constructed from traditional materials and with accommodation over two floors which extends to approximately 4743 square feet, this fabulous family home provides good ease of access to fashionable Clifton Village, the motorway networks and commercial centre.

The interior of Amberwell House has been heavily influenced and interior designed by David Hutton, there is a contemporary palette and tasteful furnishing. The fulcrum is of course the reception hall and the formal and informal rooms lying directly off. The principal reception room is generously appointed with dual aspect windows and includes the large dining area. The more formal lounging and combined functions of this room are ideal for entertaining. A more intimate family room sits adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room, ideal for families young and old. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with plenty of space to dine within, there are quality wall and base units with granite work surfaces and a host of integrated appliances. The study is also located off the reception hall for the obligatory home working. A games room has been fashioned and located off the utility and rear hall, this is split level and provides a myriad of opportunities.

The first floor features two staircases and a galleried landing off the first with six well appointed bedrooms. The principal bedroom is dual aspect and incorporates not only an en suite shower room but also a beautifully fitted dressing area and the guest bedroom is also generous in scale with a dedicated en suite bathroom and access off the secondary staircase. There are four further bedrooms, two of which feature en suite facilities with the remainder well served by the family bathroom.

Amberwell House has a low maintenance plot with established gardens and terraces which offer good privacy. A lawned front garden is discreetly hidden behind a retaining wall and with established evergreens. The gated drive provides ample parking and turning and leads to the integrated double garage, whilst the back garden has a rockery backdrop with strategic planting and incorporates a large sun deck and heated outdoor swimming pool. Some outside lighting provides ambience and there is an alfresco dining area.


Leigh Woods lies to the North West of the commercial centre and is highly sought after, a semi rural enclave and within 1 mile of fashionable Clifton Village. Adjacent is the historic Ashton Court Estate with open parkland, mountain bike trails and there are two golf courses nearby. Clifton offers bars, boutiques and some restaurants as well as prestigious schools including Clifton College, Clifton High School and institutions such as Bristol University. There are two mainline train stations available in Bristol, the closest of which is Bristol Temple Meads serving the wider country and Bristol Airport has a number of scheduled flights to a many destinations.
