A charming five bedroom, Grade II listed, Georgian townhouse (c.1813) situated on the widely admired Richmond Hill that is situated in the very heart of Clifton. Richmond Hill represents one of the more interesting Georgian terraces in Clifton and offers a highly convenient location with the many amenities of the Clifton Triangle quite literally on the doorstep. The subject property has been in the same ownership since 1954 having served as a very happy family home and this lengthy tenure stands testament to the many practicalities and versatility the property offers over and above some other similar counterparts from this era. A new lease of life is now required from an incoming purchaser through a programme of refurbishment and modernisation, however there are many fine attributes to this house that simply could not be created or recreated. Such examples of this include the incredibly rare benefit of two sizable walled gardens to the front and rear as well as the rarity of an adjoining garage that offers the convenience of secure car parking with direct access to the property through the front garden. With accommodation arranged over three floors on a series of mezzanine landings the house offers true versatility to adapt to suit a number of differing lifestyles with scope to reconfigure some areas if so desired (subject to any necessary consents). A rich abundance of original character and rare features include some intricate ceiling cornices and detail, a most elegant central stairwell with traditional Georgian balustrade, fascinating cellars, servant’s bells (including day and night bells that flank the front entrance), panelled sash windows and a rather curious, dinner plate size porthole to one of the top floor bedrooms. Without doubt however, one of the most predominant features of this fine residence is the 96 x 28 ft (29.3 x 8.6M) level walled rear garden not to mention another 55 ft x 39 ft (17.1 x 11.9M) garden to the front, both of which have clearly been enjoyed to the full and carefully tended over the years. It should also be noted that the property is offered for sale with no onward chain.
Ground floor comprising entrance hallway, lower lobby with access to cellars, reception room, breakfast/dining room, pantry and kitchen to the ground floor.

Outside: Aforementioned walled level gardens measuring 96 x 28 ft (29.3 x 8.6M) to the rear and 55 ft x 39 ft (17.1 x 11.9M) to the front. The rear garden has an outside w.c. and the front garden has pedestrian access to the single garage that in turn has vehicular access to and from Frederick Place.
Richmond Hill is a most convenient address in Clifton that is held in extremely high regard. This is owed to the uniquely convenient proximity to local amenities on the Clifton Triangle and the breath taking example of Victorian and Georgian architecture that forms one of the city’s most prized and widely admired localities. The variety of shops, boutiques and restaurants in Clifton Village are also within half a mile as well as the choice of further amenities on nearby Whiteladies Road. Several bus routes provide easy city centre access. Bristol’s City Centre is within one mile travelling distance allowing access to the national motorway network via the M32 and rail links to London Paddington from Temple Meads mainline station. The vast expanse of Clifton’s Downs can be accessed at the top of Pembroke Road (a mile distant) as can the historic landmark of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s world famous suspension bridge spanning the Avon Gorge. The area is particularly well served for schooling in both state and private sectors, with several within easy walking distance, including Clifton College, Clifton High, BGS, QEH and Christchurch Primary School.
