An imposing and substantial hillside residence set in a wonderfully convenient, yet secluded location.


This historic Grade II listed property dates to circa 1830/1832 and is understood to have once been a house for a Bristol merchant. It is certainly a rarity to find a home conveniently located so close to the extensive amenities that Clevedon offers yet so well hidden, hence its name ‘The Wilderness’. The property is set at the end of a very long, sweeping driveway set in a commanding hillside location. There is parking for numerous vehicles, with space for approximately eight to nine cars at the top of the driveway and a further two garages located close to the roadside entrance.
At the very top of the house is a fully self contained apartment, currently arranged as one bedroom, a sitting room, kitchen and shower room. This area has most recently been used by a grown up family member providing them with a sense of privacy and independence but could equally be incorporated into the accommodation of the main house as two further substantial bedrooms. The views from this top floor are superb.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, one of which is en suite and there is a smartly appointed family bathroom with walk in shower and separate bath. In addition there is a separate cloakroom. Set off the back staircase at mezzanine level is a fifth bedroom with a vaulted storage area adjacent.
Approached via a colonial style veranda entrance, stained glass double doors open to a most impressive and beautifully proportioned entrance hall with a wonderful sweeping Cantilever staircase leading to the upper floors. To the right of the hallway is a snug or home office and opposite, a superb dual aspect dining room with extensive views looking well beyond the Clevedon roof tops to the distant Mendip Hills. A Victorian cast iron fireplace with marble surround is a fine focal point at one end of the room with a magnificent floor to ceiling bay window with double doors opening directly to the front garden. The drawing room is a very elegant reception area featuring an impressive high corniced ceiling, a further marble fireplace and finely glazed widows and doors opening to the rear garden with vistas over the lawn and the swimming pool beyond. Two gentle steps lead from the hallway down to the small area or snug and leading beyond the back staircase to a further shower room.
The basement offers a myriad of uses, currently with the largest of the rooms being used as a pottery with further workshop space, cellarage, laundry and a games room. From the basement, the door opens to the side pathway adjacent to the house which is a lovely paved walkway with extensively stocked borders with mature trees and shrubs leading down to the lane and driveway.
The gardens that surround the house are a lovely feature of the home with much of their charm being the surprise hidden areas. A pathway leads up from beyond rockery to a level area of lawn, perfect for evenings around a firepit and there is a cleverly landscaped woodland walk interspersed with Oaks and fragrant and colourful shrubs for year round interest. There are number of specimen trees, most notable being the outstanding Cedar of Lebanon at the head of the driveway that can be seen for miles and is a true local landmark. The heated swimming pool to the rear is perfectly placed in a sunny yet sheltered area beyond the lawn and is heated by one of the modern gas boilers in the plant room, tucked away to the side of the property.


Being set in the prime Walton St Mary parish, most of what Clevedon has to offer is extremely accessible. The seafront and lovely coastal pathway have much appeal, there is a choice of good supermarkets, independent stores and both primary school and Clevedon School, part of Futura Learning Partnership which was rated as outstanding by Ofsted. Many choose Clevedon because of its commuter links, the M5 (Junction 20 1.25 miles) serving the South West and Midlands, excellent rail services available from Yatton train station including direct trains to London Paddington and national, European and long haul flights from Bristol Airport (7.54 miles)..
