Ambrose Road | Cliftonwood

Guide Price £875,000

Enjoying spectacular southerly views over Bristol’s harbour and many skyline features; a highly versatile and most appealing, mid-terraced, Victorian period town house offering spacious 4 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation with sunny south facing 30ft rear garden. Ambrose Road forms part of a distinctive terrace of early Victorian houses, offering flexible accommodation arranged over four floors which was thoroughly renovated in 2019. Without question the most salient feature which separates this from surrounding properties is the remarkable panoramic view to the rear elevation, very special at New Year’s Eve/Guy Fawkes’ night and Bristol’s International Balloon Fiesta. An attractive town house with high ceilings and an abundance of period features including sash windows, exposed wooden floorboards, ornate moulded cornicing and period fireplaces. Enjoying a quiet and tranquil setting away from the hurly burly of the fashionable Clifton Village and yet providing ease of access. Clifton enjoys an enviable reputation with an eclectic and diverse range of boutique shops, bars, restaurants and further essential services. The architecture is varied and striking with 400 acres of open space found on the Downs just under a mile away. There are also a number of excellent nurseries, primaries and secondary schools in the vicinity making it a popular area for family buyers. The city centre/harbourside is easily accessible by foot. The nearby Lion Pub is popular and there are two play parks within walking distance. Ground Floor: entrance hallway, bedroom with en-suite shower room/wc, drawing room. Lower Ground Floor: hall, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, separate wc. First Floor: landing, two double bedrooms. Second Floor: part galleried landing, double bedroom (4 in total), family bath/shower room. Outside: front courtyard, lower level courtyard area, fully enclosed south facing rear garden with timber deck. A most appealing and deceptively spacious period residence with so much to appreciate and savour - location, facilities, atmosphere, views, character and lots of light.
