Historic setting for popular luxury new homes in Bristol

Posted 23 January 2014

The British are passionate about their heritage and our historic buildings are some of the most popular tourist spots in the country. Our towns and cities are full of older buildings, many of which have served arrange of purposes over the years. Devonshire Homes has turned its attention to such a property in Bristol and is now offering the chance to live in a brand new home next door to a beautifully refurbished Arts and Crafts property at Bracken Hill, near Clifton.

The developer has sensitively restored the original 19th-century building and gardens and is now offering the last of an exclusive range of new-build properties that is has constructed adjacent to it, in a private, gated road. This boutique development, Overton Court, has already attracted a number of buyers, leaving just two unsold properties. Plots 3 and 4 are both on the market for £1.275m.

These semi-detached, four-storey townhouses offer over 2,700 sq ft of accommodation, plus a double garage and good-sized landscape garden. Day-to-day family life is likely to be based in the extensive kitchen/dining/living room on the ground floor. On the lower ground floor is the integral garage, a utility room, storage area and a separate family room.

The first floor is home to the master bedroom, complete with dressing area and an en suite with bath and separate shower, and another bedroom with an en suite shower room. Two more double bedrooms are on the second floor, with a family bathroom completing the layout.

Spacious rooms, plenty of natural light and a host of top quality fixtures and fittings, including Smeg and Miele appliances, an American-style fridge-freezer, wine fridge and a Quooker tap for instant hot water, highlight the quality of these properties. Bathrooms and en suites are equally luxurious, with sanitaryware from Kohler, taps from Vado Soho and tiles from Porcelanosa.

These homes have a delightful setting. The Victorian building at the heart of the scheme was originally a family home for businessman Melville Wills and was later acquired by the RAF during the Second World War. The gardens were home to the Botanical Gardens run by the University of Bristol and residents of Overton Court have exclusive access to parts of these grounds as well as neighbouring Leigh Woods.

The shops and boutiques of Clifton Village are just minutes from the development, as are good schools, major roads and the open spaces of Ashton Court.
