This beautiful house is situated on Blakeney Road, on the border of Horfield and Lockleaze, close to the Narroways/Boiling Wells Lane area which can lead quickly to St Werburghs and Ashley Down. It is an area that has become popular for the size of houses and plots, and the potential to extend. With great schools in the surrounding area, including the Little Foxes Forest School, Stoke Park Primary School and CST Trinity Academy, it is very popular with families. At the end of the road, Gainsborough Square offers local shops, a café, takeaways and a large children's play area. The area benefits from being close to the top of Gloucester Road, in reach of many popular independent shops, pubs and cafés. Local food and drink choices within walking distance include Boston Tea Party, Fierce and Noble and Wiper and True taprooms, The Lazy Dog and a number of choices available on Gloucester Road. For sports fans both The Memorial Stadium and The County Cricket Ground are nearby whilst all the sports facilities of Lockleaze Sports Centre, Horfield Leisure Centre, Filton College and U.W.E. are also close. The area benefits hugely from its proximity to major areas of employment, such as Southmead Hospital, MoD, Airbus and Rolls-Royce and this is a highly convenient residence for anyone who needs regular access to these places, as well as Bristol City Centre via the M32, train from Filton Abbey Wood or a 3-mile walk via St Werburgh’s. The property also offers very easy access to the expansive Stoke Park Estate as well as local woodland, sports fields and Horfield Common.
