The M5 motorway network is accessible via junction 19 allowing easy access to both north and south. Bristol International Airport, located in North Somerset, offers flights to European and some long haul destinations.


47 Woodhill Road is a Grade II listed property forming part of an exceptionally elegant Victorian terrace and now recognised as one of the regions' most desirable addresses. Believed to date to 1847, replicating classic Georgian style with mellow ashlar stone facade forming part of a gently stepped terrace with sash windows to the front and a six panel door with wreathed and radiating fan light. A small pathway leads through the pretty cottage style front garden to the front door with a flight of steps providing independent access to the lower courtyard and kitchen/garden level. The entrance hall is beautiful with chequerboard tiled flooring and exceptionally fine cornice which is in evidence throughout the principal rooms. From the entrance hallway, the staircase with original fine oak handrail leads to both the garden level and the upper floors. At entrance level, there are 2 reception rooms; the two deep sash windows with working shutters flood the front sitting room with morning sunshine and a marble fireplace with gas fire inset creates a focal point at the far end. A butler's' pantry sits between the sitting room and the main drawing room to the rear, providing most useful storage at this level. As with many of the rooms, the stylishly decorated drawing room commands breathtaking views across the lake grounds and the channel, again with fine decorative fireplace with living flame gas fire and with a doorway set within one of the deep window bays opening to the recently renovated balcony roof above the garden. It would be possible to re-instate the original balcony surround to make this a safe seating area to make the very best of the wonderful outlook.

The well appointed kitchen / breakfast room features a tumbled limestone floor that runs through much of the ground floor - the room is divided into a food preparation and cooking area with a Mercury five burner stove set into a chimney breast and an adjoining breakfast area . Opposite this room sits the laundry room with space for two appliances, a stainless steel sink and further storage cupboards. A modern WC can be accessed through this room with large window to the front courtyard. The dining room is of an exceptionally generous size with a large walk in store and is the perfect space for entertaining large groups of family and friends. Again there is an impressive fireplace with living flame gas fire and an original pair of double doors that open to the sunny, west facing colourful garden and terrace. As a result of the elevated position, both garden and terrace enjoy a truly amazing open vista and from the higher end a true sense of privacy and shelter afforded by the balcony roof.

At first floor there are 4 bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. A further very attractive split staircase leads to the top floor which is currently arranged as a guest suite comprising of a double bedroom, adjacent office/dressing room and en-suite shower room. The office has a walk in cupboard housing a Vaillant gas boiler. To the opposite side of this top staircase is the studio/bedroom 6 and the inter joining dedicated office space with sink/fridge/hob.

The rear garden is set over two main levels with a few further steps leading down to the large detached garage with electric up an over door, accessed off Battery Lane. The top part of the garden is the aforementioned crazy paving and flagstone terrace with a fully enclosed lawn, safe for those with children and pets and bordered by a colourful array of roses, shrubs and mixed perennials. There is an external tap for watering the garden.

On a sunny day , the second part of the garden has a truly Mediterranean feel, landscaped to include a seating area boarded by raised beds, stone seating to one side and a charming jasmine covered Pagoda from which to take shade on the hottest of days. Truly a delightful and peaceful spot in which to unwind and to escape the hubbub of daily life.

To the front of the property and accessed directly from the front garden and kitchen hallway sits a pretty Italianate style lower courtyard with a series of useful storage vaults perfect for bikes and ancillary garden equipment. The gas meter is tucked within one of these open areas. There is a useful garden tap for watering tubs and containers.
