Property description

A charming three bedroom semi-detached cottage situated on the highly regarded Church Road in the popular village of Abbots Leigh, only two miles from Clifton. This cottage is in an enviable position within the village, and has a fantastic rural outlook to the rear over neighbouring farmland towards the tree line of Leigh Woods on the horizon. Offered for sale for the first time in over 20 years this little gem of a home has been greatly enjoyed by the present owner and now offers an incoming purchaser a chance to put their own stamp on it through some modernisation. The attractive stone facade gives the impression of a much older cottage, however we are advised that 52A was converted in the 1970s from a wing into an independent dwelling. Advantages include the 69’ x 18’3 (21.3 x 5.6m) mature cottage garden to the front; courtyard garden with grapevine and great view to the rear; open-plan, ground floor living space (measuring some 23’6 x 21’2 (7.16 x6.46m); driveway parking and a large single garage.

Junction 19 of the M5 gives access to the UK motorway network and can be found within four miles and Bristol International Airport around eight miles. A variety of beautiful walks including Abbots Pool, Leigh Woods and The Avon Gorge (in itself a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest) are on offer quite literally from the doorstep.
