Park View House is the first house you see as you drive into Long Ashton, from Bristol. It is a substantial and attractive, double-fronted, Grade II Listed, Georgian house. A unique, characterful, period property, with views over fields and towards the Ashton Court Estate.

More in keeping with the Georgian properties of Clifton, on the other side of the Ashton Court Estate and Avon Gorge, this property combines the aesthetics and character of this period of architecture, with the rural feel and surroundings of Long Ashton.

One of the older houses in the village, this property has a lot of history. Our vendors’ understanding is that it dates back to the late 18th century and was originally a house and a non-conformist chapel, with various other uses over the years, including the village registry office, a laundry, a newsagents and a bed and breakfast. The current owners have carried out extensive renovation work and have created a comfortable and spacious family home.

A central entrance hall features Victorian-style, black and white, chequered, mosaic tiles. On the right is the sitting room and on the left is the dining room, both with Georgian-style, multi-pane, sash windows to the front. At the end of the hallway is the large (over 28') kitchen/breakfast room, with flagstone floor. There is a door from the kitchen onto the rear garden.

Upstairs, on the first floor, there are the two main original bedrooms, on either side of the central landing, plus the family bathroom. The landing then continues around to a particularly special room, due to its history as a chapel, with wonderful proportions, double-height with vaulted ceiling, and a mezzanine level within part of the room. This could be a fabulous fourth bedroom, or a super studio space. Another interesting element is it has its own entrance, up some steps from the garden, which may interest those looking for a home office/studio space or an annexe. The second floor consists of a further large double bedroom, with an en-suite shower room and a dressing room.

Externally, there is a lovely rear garden, with lawn, patio, shed, small stone outbuilding/storage room and flower beds/borders. When the current owners bought the property, there was a garage, on what is now an extra area of garden. There would therefore be the potential to reinstate a garage/parking area, if required, as there is a right of way over the shared driveway in front of the property, leading to the garden.
