A unique opportunity to purchase a beautifully restored and converted former stable, hosting a range of character features blended with modern technology. The Coach House provides a fabulous and timeless energy efficient space, with further potential dependant upon requirements.
SHORTLISTED for ‘Best change of use of an existing building or conversion’, in the 2016 West of England regional LABC Building Excellence Awards, this truly unique abode is a ‘one off’ hidden gem with open plan utilitarian style living space.
A keen eye on the design has helped preserve the overall charm of the building with many original features being re-used. This mix of recycled materials has been modernised by adding comforts such as under floor heating on the ground floor, insulated by recycled glass, and fabulous pitched pine framed doors opening in to an orangery with a mature grape vine grown from what was once the ‘hot house’.
Claimed to have been built two years after the suspension bridge, The Coach House has a land mark weathervane of a horse and foal and originally formed part of The Gables Estate.
The main entrance, deceptive from the front, leads you from the parking area directly into the orangery where you catch your first glimpse of the stylish home that lies beyond. The sitting room welcomes you with rustic style flooring exposed pipe effect lights warmly lit by the charming gas fire. It is in this particular room that the re-used features are most apparent from the library to the wooden cladding that furnishes the walls. This spacious area connects through to the rear of the home where the features continue. The individually designed industrial style kitchen offers bespoke units topped off with a concrete workspace and built in storage complimented by high ceilings and exposed beams creating added warmth to the area. The dining space is a continuation of the kitchen separated only by a triangular arch from which there are doors leading out to the rear garden. Within the wet/utility room the theme continues with many recycled features and fittings. A fabulous spiral staircase near to the kitchen sweeps around the turret accessing the rear bedroom and first floor facilities.
The up-cycled main wooden staircase is accessed from the sitting room, lined with painted stable bars and furnished with re-used steel and tread. Upon the first floor there are three very individual bedrooms each with its own intricate detailing. The master overlooks the orangery and beyond in to the leafy suburb of Leigh Woods. A tucked away bathroom on the same level services these rooms together with the wet room on the ground floor.
This hidden gem is located in Leigh Woods, a popular area just the other side of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. Leigh Woods is popular with those looking for a more country setting but still close to the many popular amenities, shops, bars and restaurants of Clifton Village. The Ashton Court Estate itself is an open public space with a golf course, mountain bike trails as well as walking and bridle paths dotted throughout. The popular Redwood Lodge and David Lloyd Leisure Centre are also located near to Leigh Woods. Schooling is also first class with many local families utilising schools such as Clifton College, Queen Elisabeth Hospital School (QEH), Bristol Grammar School (BGS) and Badminton School, to name but a few. Communication is excellent with access via the A369 leading to the Gordano junction (19) of the M5 via Abbots Leigh. Bristol Temple Meads offers high speed train links to London Paddington in 90 minutes and Bristol International Airport in North Somerset provides flights throughout the world.
Off street parking is available to the front of the property whilst unrestricted on street parking is available on the roads within the area on a first come first served basis. As with the interior of the property, the outside is no exception. A sociable terrace has been paved using reclaimed tiles from within the original structure to create a sociable entertaining sweeping around the outside. To the side lie mature flower beds creating vibrant colours during the summer months. Enclosed level gardens offer an area of tranquillity as the sun sweeps around in the early morning and late afternoon.
