A split level and contemporary home with panoramic Gorge views

Location

Avon Heights is discreetly tucked away at the end of a private road and situated overlooking the Avon Gorge and within close proximity of the Sneyd Park Nature Reserve. There are pleasant woodland walks and of course, Sneyd Park is on the cusp of Durdham Downs with 400 acres of recreational space. Sneyd Park is a highly desirable suburb lying to the north-west of Bristol’s commercial centre and benefits from many amenities. There is a small array of shops suitable for day to day living in Druid Hill and a more extensive selection available from Queens Road with some more select boutiques in Clifton Village. Recreational facilities are in abundance, such as golf courses and leisure clubs in Redland and Westbury-on-Trym, as well as some walks along the various tree-lined roads. Bus services provide a regular service to the city centre and for the commuter, the A4 and A4018 provide a direct link to the motorway networks, M5 and M4 (south-west, Midlands, London and South Wales respectively). There are many schools in the near vicinity, state and independent, primary and secondary, as well as institutions such as the Royal Infirmary and University.
