In Bower Ashton you’re right on the edge of the fantastic Ashton Court estate as well as being just 10 minutes’ drive from Bristol’s city centre.
Bower Ashton was historically a hamlet in the parish of Long Ashton in Somerset, and in medieval times the area was owned by St Augustine’s Abbey. Maps of the area from the 19th century show a ropewalk, Frayne’s Colliery and Ashton Vale Ironworks, adjacent to the Portishead railway line.
This semi-detached property is the perfect size for a family and, being on Rownham Close, it’s tucked away from the main road in a quiet corner, almost backing onto the grounds of the Ashton Court estate.
A spacious driveway fronts the property and provides parking for multiple vehicles, and there’s an additional integrated single garage with electric door and storage cupboards.
Stepping through the front door you’ll find the newly carpeted lounge to the left and the rest of the ground-floor rooms straight ahead. The room overlooking the front garden is bay-windowed and well-lit, and is a great space to relax.
Behind the lounge is the dining room, which has a log burner, built-in storage, space for a full-sized table as well as sofas and flows freely into the kitchen.
This gloss kitchen has granite worktops, a built-in dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven and underfloor heating as an extra bonus.
Upstairs, the four bedrooms share a three-piece bathroom suite with shower over bath and underfloor heating, in addition to the WC downstairs. Built-in wardrobes in the bedrooms make organisation straightforward and bedroom one has its own en suite complete with sink, toilet, heated towel rail and oversized shower.
The rear garden is perfect for al fresco dining in the summer and the double doors leading out from the kitchen onto the patio area make it the ideal house for hosting. The garden has flower beds and also a vegetable patch.
In Rownham Close you have an abundance of schools to choose from – Ashton Park School round the corner is rated good by Ofsted, while Ashton Gate Primary is rated outstanding by Ofsted and is just 20 minutes away on foot.
Also in the area is UWE’s creative campus and also 180 allotments spread over five different sites.
Regular bus services run to the centre from the roundabout near the property, making it easy to commute into the city for work or school.
Under a mile away is the Aldi in Southville making it ideal for swinging by on the way back from the city centre – there is also a Sainsbury’s close by too.
Southville’s famous North Street is just 15 minutes’ walk away from the property and is packed with restaurants, cafes, boutiques, bars and many other independent businesses. Bristol’s bustling harbourside isn’t far away either and has many fantastic dining out spots.
