Hopewell are delighted to bring to the market this fabulous family home in need of modernisation. The property is in a great location, next to the historic Blaise Hamlet and Blaise Castle estate. A must see!
Hopewell are delighted to bring to market this potentially great family home, that has been in the current ownership for decades. In need of modernisation, this nicely proportioned family home enjoys an open outlook within a quiet cul de sac. Castle Close was originally the walled garden for Bristol Zoo, and as such retains the original stone walling throughout the boundary of the cul de sac.
There is so much on the doorstep of Castle Close, either the Blaise Estate which offers acres and acres of great walks, whether dropping down to Hazel Brook or climbing to the Gothic Style Folly the Estate offers something for everyone including a fabulous childrens play area and cafe. Next to Castle Close is Blaise Hamlet, which is a wonderful part of Bristol's history and comprises of nine magical rustic cottages. The Blaise Inn is a short walk as is Henbury Leisure centre.
Blaise High School is a short walk away and was taken over by Greenshaw Learning Trust and opened in September 2019, as such it has no OFSTED report, although we understand it to be a good school.
The property itself forms part of the cul de sac, and has garden to the front and rear, as well as a twin garage with ample off street parking. The property benefits from double glazing and boasts some great original features, such as a parquet floor throughout the hallway, leading to the original open tread bespoke staircase, and large double glazed windows allowing natural light to flood the property.
The South facing Garden to the rear is landscaped and boasts a wealth of mature trees, shrubs and plants, and has its own access to the twin garages.
