Summary of accommodation

This well presented home has accommodation arranged over four floors, allowing a good degree of flexibility for differing lifestyle requirements. The basement level has direct access from the front, allows an incoming purchaser true versatility whether seeking potential for a self-contained flat to provide a rental income, home working environment or additional guest accommodation as desired.

An elegant central stairwell linking the upper floors is cleverly illuminated by a large skylight directly above.

Location

Canynge Square was built between 1842 and 1853 and is held in high regard as a place to live: the area is already rich in tree lined streets and Georgian or early Victorian architecture. It is a remarkably quiet yet central location with a reputation for a strong community spirit and as a point of interest, it has an active residents association that raises a small annual subscription to manage the central gardens and organises four social events a year. These include an annual dinner, picnic breakfast, bonfire night and Christmas carols. Clifton Village, with its shops, boutiques and restaurants, is a short walk across Christchurch Green. Convenient bus routes provide easy access to the city centre which is only one and a half miles away as is the M32 and Bristol Temple Meads railway station. Also nearby, are the open spaces of Clifton Downs, Bristol Zoo and the suspension bridge, which spans the Avon Gorge. The area is particularly well served by schools in both state and private sectors: Clifton College, Clifton High School and Christchurch Primary School all within easy walking distance.
