With one of the best settings in Stoke Park, this beautifully presented four-bedroom detached home is nestled on the edge of the protected woodland. The local area is what puts this home above the rest. Surrounded by the 267 acres of Stoke Park, designed by Thomas Wright, there is a diversity of open space, woodland and the Duchess Pond in the view of the 16th Century Dower House. Also in the woodland is the grade II listed Hermitage Tunnel and on the top of the ridge, Purdown Percy, a fascinating WWII relic and scheduled monument. The park is home to an abundance of wildlife, including badgers, rare birds, deer and foxes. If you are in want of more space, Snuff Mills, part of the Frome Valley Walkway and one of Bristol's most beautiful spots is a short stroll away. There are a range of sports & activities to partake in, including Downend & Frenchay Tennis Club, Bristol Golf Centre, multiple rugby clubs, as well as the Holiday Inn’s gym & swimming pool facilities. The government has invested heavily into the area’s infrastructure, with improved road and rail links plus £250 million being spent on express bus routes that take you out towards Cribbs Causeway in fifteen minutes and into the city in eight, where you can experience a show at the Hippodrome or the highly regarded, We The Curious. If you cycle, the Bristol to Bath cycle path is close by, where you can enjoy a scenic and wonderfully flat 25-mile round trip along the old trainline. Numerous supermarkets are close by, including Sainsburys, Asda and Lidl, plus there is scope to order Spanish and Italian cuisines from Degusta.co.uk and mercanti.co.uk. Within walking distance are a number of restaurants and takeaways, including an extremely highly rated Chinese and Indian. But a few minutes’ walk away is Stoke Gifford Retirement Village, which boasts a fitness suite, library, Bistro that is ideal for socialising, as well as a village hall acting as a multipurpose activity space.
