Captivating Colonnade


It may require a lot of love, but this is property like no other

If you’re looking for an amazingly unique property, then look no further. Set back from the main A4 Portway in Hotwells behind a small communal garden is this property of outstanding calibre. Set in the lee of Bristol’s iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge and close to the defunct Clifton Rocks Railway, it is believed to date back to 1786. This property may require complete refurbishment, but it is a gem just waiting to be polished. 

The Grade-II* listed terrace comprises four separate properties and curves attractively round to face the sunny side of the Avon Gorge and boasts a number of attractive period features. Externally, it is stunning – red brickwork adorns the upper floors, projecting out onto a Tuscan colonnade which gives the terrace its name. The ground floor of the main building was originally intended to be shops for the nearby and long since demolished Hotwells Spa – although there’s plenty of scope for this level to be turned into something equally as interesting. 

The first floor comprises two bedrooms, one with an en suite wetroom, a large reception that could easily become a third bedroom and a Jack and Jill bathroom that is currently not in use. The ground floor is mostly laid out as an open-plan kitchen/living space, and to the rear there is a rear courtyard with vaulted storage. This could easily provide the perfect home for a professional couple or young family who are looking to put in some hard work for some envious results – you won’t find a property like this anywhere else. 

This property is situated in an ideal location. The areas of Clifton, Cliftonwood and the Harbourside are all within easy reach, and there’s easy access to south Bristol just across Brunel’s swing bridge. The city centre isn’t far either – you could be in town in just fifteen minutes by car or bus.
