A frequent participant in The Times ‘Best Places to Live’ list is the affluent and leafy neighbourhood of Redland.
There are many reasons why Redland is so popular and esteemed by families, not least because of its offering of excellent (and much coveted) primary and secondary schools, and ease of access to local parks and the 400 acre protected reserve of The Downs, but also its sense of community, and friendly village-like feel. Several little high streets shape this neighbourhood and provide residents with easy access to popular pubs and cafes, famed restaurants- some with a Michelin star- as well as shops, bakeries, delicatessens, boutiques, and other lifestyle amenities. Redland’s closeness to Whiteladies Road, Clifton, and the city centre further cements its popularity with the professional market, as well as the offering of stylish and characterful apartments that help to make up its housing stock. Architectural styles in Redland are predominantly an attractive mix of large Victorian villas, townhouses and Edwardian terraces, many of which remain singular residences making for superb and spacious family homes.
