For Sale Guide Price £350,000 - Semi-Detached House
A three-bedroom semi with a secluded south-facing rear garden, parking and apparent scope to extend, all set in a very convenient location with each access into Bristol, or out of town.
The current owners of this three-bedroom semi (which was, we understand, originally built for the local constabulary) considered the convenient location to be important when they bought the house around 15 years ago, having easy access into Bristol via the A4 or out of town via the M5 Motorway which is about 5 minutes away. Since then things have only improved! The park and ride bus service is within walking distance, as is the local railway station offering trains, every half hour at peak times, into Bristol Temple Meads.The motorway network puts The Mall shopping centre within easy reach, and there are more shops in nearby Shirehampton Village and a convenience store just around the corner. Dog owners, or anyone who enjoys the great outdoors, will love the close proximity of the River Avon for leisurely walks. The house, too, has been greatly improved during its current ownership, with the installation of a new boiler (which has been regularly serviced), a security alarm system, loft insulation, the construction of a porch at the front, and a full rewire, all having taken place. The front garden has been converted to provide parking for three cars (and access onto the road is remarkably easy as the nearby traffic lights afford regular breaks in the flow of cars). The rear garden is a particularly special treat: south-facing, secluded and completely enclosed by relatively new fencing. And, to the side of the house, is an additional garden which would appear to lend possibilities of extending the house, providing additional off-street parking, or building a garage.

The house is situated on the southerly side of the A4 Portway, meaning that it is conveniently set for access to the M5 motorway at Avonmouth (and therefore ideal for commuters needing to travel to the South West, South Wales, the Midlands and the North, and London and the East!). Travelling into the centre of Bristol is also good, with the local park and ride bus service and half-hourly trains from the nearby rail station, all within a short walk. There is a convenience store close by, more shops in Shirehampton Village (about 11 minutes by foot) and, of course, the motorway also provides quick access to The Mall shopping centre at Cribbs Causeway. St Bernards Catholic Primary School, less than 300 metres away, achieved a Good rating in its most recent Ofsted report, as did Shirehampton Primary which is about 563 metres away and Oasis Academy Brightstowe Secondary, about half a mile or 772 metres. There is a very popular local pub, The Lamplighters, and walks along the River Avon.
