The name of this detached family house does it no favours whatsoever: it is by no means a “Little House”!

Set in an exclusive cul-de-sac which offers easy access to the motorway at Cribbs Causeway, or into the centre of the City by car or bus, this “Little House” does not really live up to its name! It has three large bedrooms, plus a study and spacious bathroom on the first floor, four reception rooms, a big kitchen, a cloakroom and a utility room downstairs. What’s more, there is an attached double garage which makes us wonder if there might be scope to adapt or extend. The house does need some updating, admittedly, and the garden has turned into a bit of a jungle, but your effort in tidying it all up will be well rewarded, we’re sure!
