Property description

Burwalls Lodge is, quite simply, a fabulous detached house, situated in one of the most exclusive gated estates in the South West. Refurbished between 2016 and 2017 it forms part of a small development of family houses and luxury lateral apartments, sharing between them some five acres of communal gardens and grounds.

With “Burwalls House” to the east (a former home of the Wills family) comprising the apartments, Burwalls Lodge is situated towards the western edge of the estate, accessed via a shared gated driveway from Burwalls Road. To the north is the open expanse of Leigh Woods nature reserve, whilst to the west is a further circa 800 acres of public parkland surrounding the Ashton Court estate.

Internally, the house is a unique blend of old & new; with the previously existing Victorian gate lodge sensitively yet comprehensibly extended and refurbished to create a stunning family home in a superb setting.

Accessed just off the main entrance gates, The Lodge has a generous gravel driveway with paring for several cars (there is additional guest parking nearby) and a cast iron pedestrian gate opening onto a path leading to the barley twist pillared covered entrance porch.

Inside, the original “lodge” is laid out to left and right, with a central staircase leading up to the first floor. To the left is a charming sitting room with a triple bay stone-mullion window affording views across the parkland towards Burwalls house and a pretty cast-iron fire surround with a tiled insert and open hearth.

To the left of the entrance hall is a lovely light-filled dual-aspect dining room, open plan to the kitchen below. A triple bay stone-mullion window overlooks the side garden and there is a feature Art Nouveau fire surround.

It is to the rear that the house has undergone the most extensive work, substantially extended to provide a superb family kitchen (and en-suite bathroom above). Reached by steps from the dining room, or directly from the rear hall, it provides an expanse of granite worksurfaces, extensive floor and wall-mounted storage, ceramic hob and electric oven and grill below. In addition, there is an integrated fridge and freezer and a dishwasher, with French doors leading out onto the south-facing paved terrace and underfloor heating.

To the rear of the house is a generous rear entrance hall with a glazed canopy ceiling. There is plenty of space for a bench for taking off / putting on boots and coats (ideal after long muddy walks) and access to a fitted utility cupboard and a separate cloakroom with a w.c and wash basin.

Downstairs, the lower ground floor has been cleverly excavated to present a stunning 18' living room opening out onto a private paved west-facing terrace. This could equally double up as a further bedroom if needed. In addition, there is a further double bedroom to the rear and an additional home office / gym. The lower ground floor hallway also houses extra fitted storage / wardrobe space.

This floor is served by a fully fitted family bathroom, with an integrated shower above the bath and underfloor heating.

Upstairs, over the first floor, is a pretty landing with a triple casement window overlooking the front garden.

The master bedroom is a lovely size, with a triple casement window and timber beamed ceiling. It has access to an oversize luxury en-suite bathroom; complete with a contemporary twin-ended bath (with wonderful private views over the tree canopy), enclosed shower cubicle, w.c and wash basin. In addition there are a range of fitted wardrobes, a wall mounted heated towel ladder and under floor heating.

To the side of the landing is a guest bedroom, with triple casement windows and views over the parkland, as well as recessed wardrobe and feature fireplace. This could make an ideal nursery, or dressing room for bedroom one.


The gardens of Burwalls Lodge wrap-around the house, with an expanse of parking flanked by lawn leading up to a yew-hedge border. To the rear, the gardens slip down to a seamless boundary with the National Trust woodland beyond.

To the immediate rear of the house is a large south-facing paved terrace; ideal for al-fresco dining, whilst to eh western side is a further area of lawn, and steps down to the lower ground floor paved terrace.

The communal gardens are of course exquisite; with a huge expanse of lawn and wonderful wooded walks and shaded lawns to relax in and unwind. A real treat to have so much space shared between so few people situated between Clifton village and the open countryside.
