Summary of accommodation

Built in the 1980’s, Bridge View House makes the most of its enviable setting. The property is set over three stories and widens to makes the most of the topography and outlook. In need of light modernisation, Bridge View House presents a unique opportunity for all manner of potential purchasers from downsizers, to those looking for a family home.

The front door is on the middle level, and opens to an impressive entrance hallway leading to the wonderful triple aspect principle reception room with two sets of patio doors affording access to a full width balcony which enjoys the aforementioned views. From the hallway there are doorways to the garden, cloakroom, side garden and integral double garage with utility area, stairs ascend to the family kitchen/living/dining room, and descend to the bedroom level.
The kitchen/living/dining room is where the current owners of 30 years spend a majority of their time, as the comfortable proportions allow for dining and sitting areas, and the patio doors open to a lovely roof terrace allowing the desired “Al Fresco” living with lovely views.

There are four bedrooms on the ground floor, the master bedroom with ensuite, and bedroom two with ensuite WC and shower, have sliding doors opening onto the paved patio. Bedroom three is a double, and bedroom four has external access and has been used as a self contained office.

The Gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a wealth of mature trees and shrubs. There is a large patio area that covers a decommissioned swimming pool, and steps that give access to the Bridge.


Leigh Woods is a highly sought after location on the very edge of the city on the opposite side of the dramatic Avon Gorge (which is designated a site of special scientific interest). The fashionable shopping district of Clifton is within half a mile and is accessible across Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s world famous suspension bridge constructed in 1864. More comprehensive amenities within the city centre are within three miles. For the active, a host of sporting, social and recreational facilities are readily available in and around the area with two reputable golf courses in nearby Failand and Long Ashton and the beautiful open grounds of Ashton Court Estate, which is ideal for walking, horse riding and mountain biking. The subject property offers near immediate access to Leigh Woods itself forming some 200 hectares of woodland, owned and managed by the National Trust being ideal for family walks, running and cycling.
As previously mentioned, Leigh Woods and the Avon Gorge represent an area of special scientific interest rich in protected woodland and associated wildlife. Deer, rare butterflies and birdlife (including cuckoos, peregrine falcons and red lists) are prevalent adding to this truly unique and coveted environment with the city quite literally on the doorstep.
