Wonderful wooded location backing onto open fields
A highly prized and sought after location close to Clifton Village with its eclectic mix of bars and boutiques. There are a number of highly regarded independent schools close by as well as state primary and secondary schools. Being on the cusp of the country there are liveries and bridle paths in proximity as well as mountain bike trails and many country walks. Other sporting facilities include health and leisure and golf clubs. For the commuter the A369 serves the M5 motorway network and Bristol City centre. There are excellent rail services available from Bristol Temple Meads and many flights to a number of national, European and some long haul destinations available from Bristol Airport.
Stoke Leigh is without doubt a one-off! Given that this property is still within walking distance of all the fine shops, bars and restaurants of Clifton Village, it is hard to imagine another home that enjoys such a dramatic contrast between locations. On first viewing, visitors may be surprised to discover that this property was ever built in such a select area protected by the Greenbelt on all sides. Tucked away from the main road on Coronation Avenue, a Copper Beech lined lane planted to commemorate the ascession of Queen Elizabeth in 1953. This follows the start of the nineteenth century carriage drive to Leigh Court. Stoke Leigh backs onto open fields at the rear and enjoys completely unspoilt wooded vistas on all other sides. Its charm is that despite its hugely convenient location, there are no immediate neighbours and the owners enjoy a great sense of privacy with typically the only passing traffic being dog walkers or cyclists on their way to enjoy the beautiful countryside of Leigh Woods at the bottom of the lane. Originally built in 1983 and benefiting from significant improvements by the current owners in the late 1990's, the property offers accommodation equally suitable for a growing family or perhaps for those downsizing with requirements still for visiting guests and seeking easily managed accommodation on a single level. From its gated entrance, a driveway sweeps from the front of the house to a generous parking and turning area on the north eastern side of the property with a large integral double garage. Within the house, the entrance hall with cloakroom off, opens to a good size sitting room with dual aspect windows to the front and side. The separate dining room has double doors from the sitting room that can be opened up to improve the entertaining area as and when required. A fitted kitchen/breakfast room has a glazed door that leads directly out to the rear garden. There are four bedrooms in total and a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle – the master suite has the benefit of a walk through dressing room which in turn leads to the en suite bathroom. It is clear that the current owners have very much enjoyed their gardens over the years and lavished a good deal of care and attention on them. There is a gravelled seating area, well positioned to enjoy the afternoon and early evening sun, raised flower borders and delightful enclosed lawned gardens that feature superb specimen trees and a colourful array of spring bulbs. A rare opportunity indeed.
