A beautifully presented Victorian Villa with charm, character and an exceptional garden. Perched in an elevated position towards the end of a cul-de-sac, this semi-detached home has views towards the Harbourside and the Somerset hills beyond. At the rear is one of the largest mature gardens in Clifton offering a sense of rural tranquility in the city. A patio leads from the house to a path which climbs up to a yew tree gateway opening into a large, carefully landscaped garden with a range of perennial plants, fruit trees, several seating areas, a lawn, an ornamental pond and a round wood garden studio. This hand built, hexagonal sanctuary has a sedum roof, timber frame double glazing and a log burner and provides a versatile outdoor feature.
