    • A fine stone built period house with ornate pediments and quoins constructed circa 1865. Avonwood is discreetly tucked away and occupies a prominent position on the edge of the Gorge with Southerly views. Established gardens and a recently replanted vineyard are included within the curtilage in addition to a wild meadow and some woodland, in all approximately 3.13 acres.

Southerly views from all the principal rooms including the master bedroom suite extend over the Gorge and towards the famous Suspension Bridge. The main reception rooms and study are located on the ground floor with access to a balcony which spans the rear elevation. Prominent features have been retained within, whilst many enhancements have been made. The kitchen/breakfast room on the garden level is the core of the home, beautifully appointed and enjoying immediate access and terrific views over the garden. Adjacent is the guest bedroom suite and there is also a laundry/utility room. The principal bedrooms are on the first floor off a sizeable landing with a linen cupboard, bathroom and bedroom. There are two further bedroom suites in addition to a master bedroom which has advantageous views, its own dedicated dressing room and a sizeable bathroom. The lower ground floor incorporates the leisure elements and these include a cinema room, gym and steam room.
