Property description

3 Longwood Lane is a superb, modern detached family home beautifully refurbished and landscaped by the current owners with wonderfully versatile accommodation, along with a detached one-bedroom annex.

Situated in a very private setting, just 2.5 miles west of Clifton, a mile north of Long Ashton and on the edge of Failand it presents a superb opportunity with easy access into Bristol, the M5 and many of Bristol's numerous sought-after independent prep and private schools.

An attractive pair of wrought-iron electric gates lead off Longwood Lane into a shallow shared driveway (with just one other home), with a private electric wooden gate opening into the driveway of No. 3.

Access to the house is via an attractive covered porch, perfect for storing wood for the fire and boots with the part-glazed front door opening into a lovely entrance hall. From here a stone tiled floor flows into the kitchen and dining room, with stairs to the first floor and access to a useful understairs storage cupboard.

To the left of the hall is a fabulous triple aspect sitting room, complete with bay window, a working open fire and enjoying wonderful views over the side and rear gardens with French doors leading out to the rear.

To the opposite side of the hall the lovely light-filled kitchen is accessed via a feature oak-framed square top arch, with the stone floor running though into the dining area. The room has a lovely flow with a stable door from the kitchen out into the rear garden and through French doors from the dining area into the side garden. In addition, the whole space is open plan to the deep family room beyond creating a wonderfully sociable family space.

The kitchen itself is finished with an expanse of marble work tops, floor and wall mounted storage, a Belfast sink overlooking the garden and a feature “Everhot” range cooker. There is an integrated undercounter fridge and an integrate dishwasher.

From the dining area is charming family room with a dual aspect and attractive built-in storage to accommodate a further family fridge (if needed) and fittings for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

From the kitchen there is access to a separate cloakroom, compete with a w.c and wash basin.

Upstairs, the generous landing is illuminated by a large window on the half-landing, and gives access to five bedrooms.

The triple aspect master bedroom is a great size complete with a charming wisteria clad casement widow, fitted wardrobe, recessed linen cupboard (housing the hot water tank) and access to a well-appointed en-suite bath and shower room.

The remaining four bedrooms are each a great size, with the smallest, bedroom five, making an ideal home office or nursery. They share a superb family bathroom, complete with a panelled bath, enclosed shower, w.c and wash basin. Like the master bedroom en-suite it also benefits from a Velux window and attractive traditional heated towel rail radiator.


“Yew Tree Cottage” is a lovely addition to the house, created by the current owners from the previously existing detached garage. It presents a superb space for dependent family, guest overflow, large home office or to enjoy an additional income from either Airbnb or a longer term AST.

Arranged over two floors it enjoys a lovely L-shaped ground floor footprint with an open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room. Above is a generous bedroom with eaves storage. This is served by a ground floor fully fitted shower room. A great space that can be “brought-in” or separated from the house as and when required.

To the side is useful workshop / storage shed.


The gardens of No. 3 are fully enclosed (dog and children friendly) wrap-around the house and have been beautifully landscaped by the current owners to create a year round useable space for families of all ages.

To the front there is off-street parking for numerous cars with a large area of lawn to the side of the house, leading down to a bespoke children's play area with wooden play and climbing equipment.

To the rear is a further expanse of lawn, accessed from both the sitting room and kitchen which wraps around to the side garden, accessed from the dining room. This south facing side is the perfect spot for al-fresco dining, and the current owners have created a large paved dining terrace and a bespoke wooden framed covered outdoor kitchen area. Perfect for the pizza oven and BBQ.

The whole connects back to the front drive via a pretty pedestrian gate creating a full 360 degrees of useable outdoor space.
