Nestled at the end of a private road, set in an elevated position adjacent to the iconic The Dower House, one of Bristol's more prominent landmarks, with commanding views all the way to Dundry across the 270 acres of Grade II protected woodland that make up Stoke Park sits this substantial and versatile property. Extensively modified and extended by the current owner, increasing the property area by over 40%, this house now boasts almost 2000 square feet of living accommodation.
The house is arranged over three levels with the main living accommodation on the top floor, now open plan to make use of the 270 degree views of the park and woodlands. On the top floor of the property lies the large open plan kitchen/dining lounge area. This was originally 3 separate rooms (could easily be reinstated) however the current owner opened this area to make the most of the views. There is a balcony with steps leading down to the garden, but you can just sit and watch the sunset over the woods. Off this area is a utility storage area and through that is a WC and laundry facility. The entrance floor, with heated tiled floor, has three double bedrooms leading off the hallway, which also has a built in cupboard for coats. The master bathroom is also on this level. The main bedroom has a full en-suite shower room with a heated tiled floor, but bedroom two also has it’s own shower room and sink. Stairs lead down to the basement level which was opened up and developed by the current owner and now houses a gym with infra restaurant sauna on one side, a large games room/home cinema room with high ceilings and large storage. Within the basement space is a secret cupboard that is used as a wine cellar. This entire area only varies by 5 degrees C between the height of summer and dead of winter due to the well thought out insulation and ventilation. Outside there is access to a very large garage with enough space to park 2 ‘city’ cars plus 2 normal cars – or use the extra space for workshop. The double access garage space has electric doors fitted together with electric power points, lighting, background heating and a separate alarm system. There is also a straightforward project to give direct access from the house into the garage space. OWNERS COMMENTS: "Come bonfire night and new year’s eve you have the city of Bristol putting on a display for you. Similarly, when the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is running, sit in the garden and watch the balloon across the city. If the prevailing breeze is in the right direction, the balloons come directly over the house. The garden, laid to Welsh slate, is surrounded by the Victorian wall in the shape of a castle parapet. From here you can rejoice in the views or make the most of sunny days in the south facing garden. From here also you can watch the local wildlife. In the park deer will regularly make an appearance when there are few people around. Squirrels will play on the castle parapet wall most morning. There has been a single, and sometimes a nesting pair of Kestrels in the park, and most days you will see one hunting just off the trees closest to the house. On more than one occasion the current owner has seen a Kestrel perched on the balcony of the house surveying the park below at sunrise. At night you can hear the Tawny Owls in the woods opposite come to life. There are plenty of local groups from birdwatchers to wildlife education that make use of Stoke Park and it’s diverse nature. with its history dating back to the 14th Century."
