South facing iconic views of the Avon Gorge and Suspension Bridge
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.
The property combines generous entertaining rooms allied with more intimate and family space and caters well for families young and old. 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.
There is a detached cottage, two storey and ideal for a dependent relative, housekeeper or any extended family. There is also a summer house and a further store.
The vineyard was recently replanted with Chardonnay grapes and can produce between 1200 and 1500 bottles per year.
