Property description

Avonhurst is a little known gem nestling on the edge of The Downs, in what is perhaps one of the area's best residential plots; with extensive off-street parking to the front and a fabulous private garden with a swimming pool and original glazed ”fruit house” (known as the peach house) to the rear.

For sale for the first time in almost 30 years, the house presents a unique opportunity to the market; catering to any new owners who might wish to give the house just a light refresh, or buyers who are looking to undertake more extensive work (subject to any consents) to create a truly fabulous family home.

At present, the house comprises a stunning ground floor reception space, with flashes of art deco brilliance coupled with period grandeur such as wood panelling, high timbered ceilings and a wonderful view upon entering down through the reception space and out into the deep rear garden beyond. The whole space provides a versatile layout, with space for two sitting rooms (one with a coal effect gas fire) and a generous dining area.

In addition, the ground floor also presents a generous study off the entrance hall, fitted kitchen with an adjoining breakfast room / conservatory and a third bedroom overlooking the garden complete with a separate cloak room - easily adaptable to a shower room.

Upstairs lie two double bedrooms; the master benefits has dramatic views directly across The Downs from its bay fronted window along with a well-appointed an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom two is served by a separate shower room and there is a plenty of recessed storage in both bedrooms and along the landing.

Above lies a large attic space, accessed from the first floor landing via a loft ladder which, subject to the necessary consents, could covert to provide an additional two bedrooms and a family bathroom.


The gardens at Avonhurst are a key feature of the property, with the house tucked discreetly away behind a mature hedge presenting a private front garden and a gated driveway with off-street parking for numerous vehicles.

A drive leads down to a detached timber garage with a car-port to the front and a side gate leading to the rear.

The rear garden is exquisite, and one of the deepest on the road with a wonderfully mature borders, trees and an established level lawn. Nearest the house runs a paved terraced, perfect for morning coffee and breakfast, whilst to the rear is a charming original glazed fruit house.

In the middle of the garden lies a heated outdoor swimming pool surrounded by a paved terrace, providing year 'round enjoyment for families or all ages and size.


Ivywell Road is without doubt one of the principal residential addresses in Bristol; lined with period detached and semi-detached family houses each with extensive views south-west across The Downs; some 400 acres or so of open public space.

There are several state and private schools in the area; most notably Badminton School for Girls, Redmaids High School and St Ursula's School; with Clifton College, Clifton High School, bgs and qeh located just across The Downs.

Within an easy commute is a large Waitrose supermarket in Henleaze, several independent shops on Stoke Hill and across The Downs numerous independent retailers, bars and restaurants in Clifton village and along Whiteladies Road.
