Valley View is located in Leigh Woods, a highly regarded semi rural address lying to the west of Brunel's famous suspension bridge. There are many attributes associated with Leigh Woods and these include the aforementioned Nightingale Valley and surrounding woodland with bridle paths, footpaths and mountain bike trails. Adjacent is the Ashton Court Estate with linked golf course and further mountain bike trails with the Bristol and Clifton and Long Ashton golf courses further again. There are health and leisure clubs nearby as well as tennis clubs and this popular enclave provides easy and direct links to Clifton Village and Bristol’s commercial centre as well as the M5 motorway network. Clifton has a range of highly regarded independent schools including Clifton College, Clifton High School and Bristol Grammar, to name but a few. There are institutions including the Royal West of England Art Academy, Bristol University and the Royal Infirmary. Bristol has two main line stations with rail services to a number of cities nationwide as well as Bristol International Airport which is approximately 8.5 miles distant with flights to many European and some long haul destinations.
Valley View was constructed circa 1908 and is situated within this idyllic wooded setting. The property has been refurbished and extended during the tenure of the present occupiers and provides an adaptable family footprint with 5 bedrooms and 2/3 reception rooms over 3 floors. Purported to have been built for the toll keeper for the Suspension Bridge, Valley View retains much of its original Edwardian detail including high ceilings, sash windows and working fireplaces, whilst modern enhancements include a contemporary open plan kitchen leading into a large family dining area. The property enjoys a green and verdant outlook with terraces, sunken lawns and there is the benefit of garaging and some ancillary stores for bike storage amongst other uses. The property sits in an elevated position at the head of Nightingale Valley, a haven for flora and fauna and is ideally placed within easy striking of Clifton's fashionable village.
