Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Parklands was one of the first houses to be built here after the 2nd world war and has been the long term family home of the current owners who have maintained and cared for the house beautifully over the years. It occupies a charming position nestled in the much loved Leigh Woods conservation area and enjoys excellent privacy and wonderful views over the 850 acres of Ashton Court to the front and the Leigh Woods nature reserve to the rear.
The original construction of the house included a number of the key features seen today such as the excellent flow and wonderfully large windows which make the most of the view and allow the light to flood in throughout the day. A welcoming entrance hall offers views right through the open tread wooden stairs and to the near floor to ceiling rear window beyond, giving you glimpses of the substantial rear garden and lovely trees beyond.
The main sitting room is a triple aspect room with central focal fireplace, wooden floors and double door access onto the rear conservatory. The conservatory has been positioned to make the most of the views of the private garden to the rear and offers a tranquil and calming space. The kitchen, which is fully fitted, opens on to a breakfast area and is amply backed up by the walk-in utility room and store which houses an independent sink, a variety of store cupboards and rear access ideal for boots and coats. The formal dining room which is of excellent proportions is ideal for family events. There is also a useful downstairs shower and WC. Doors from the utility room lead into the large integrated double garage with a roller shutter to the rear and windows to the front and back.
Rising to the first floor the master suite is a lovely triple aspect room with integrated shower, sink and fitted wardrobes. Three further double bedrooms all have lovely green views and share both a family bathroom as well as an independent WC. The guest bedroom has a small cupboard believed to have originally been designed for a later addition above the garage which was never completed. A drop down ladder from the first floor leads into the exceptional 46 ft. by 20 ft. loft space with ceiling light which is ideal for conversion or storage.


Leigh Woods is much prized for its convenient access to Clifton Village, across the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Clifton Village offers a plethora of independent boutiques, bars, restaurants and facilities. Leigh Woods itself has a much more rural feel, is a conservation area and has been much prized from the Victorian era through to today. It falls within North Somerset Council and has excellent links with state schools locally as well as good proximity to the private school system in Bristol which includes Bristol Grammar School, Clifton College, Badminton School and QEH. For sporting activities there is a David Lloyd leisure centre in Long Ashton, the Bristol and Clifton Gold Club and a further golf course at Ashton Court with excellent mountain bike trails in the surrounding woodland. Communication links are also first class with Bristol Temple Meads offering high speed trains to London Paddington in 90 minutes and Bristol International Airport offering world wide travel.


The property has exceptional road frontage of some 120 ft. and is positioned well back in the plot to give a generous front garden and ample parking through the double gates. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with some well stocked herbaceous beds and a large wall and mature trees providing privacy from the road. The rear garden is again mainly laid to lawn with some surrounding beds and some mature trees which have been well maintained by the current owners. There is a rear patio area accessed from the conservatory which is ideal for al fresco dining as well as a green house and gardeners WC.
