At present there is a shortage of stock in both houses and apartments for sale. When concentrating on the town market, there is demand across the board with buyers seeing advantages in all regions that we cover. When considering Clifton, buyers are interested in houses and flats for sale predominantly being within walking distance of Clifton village facilities, as well as schools; most noticeably Clifton College, Clifton High, Bristol Grammar School (BGS) and Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH).
These houses and apartments will have limited outside space and parking will also be limited but will be located with the resident’s parking scheme.
Areas such as Sneyd Park and Stoke Bishop will appeal to families who are looking for accommodation predominantly over two floors and greater outside space. Apartments for sale in this area can enjoy views across The Downs and can have a fantastic sense of space, even though you are living within the city.
Redland and Cotham are very appealing parts of Bristol in which to live. Flats and houses for sale generate a great deal of interest and are often the destination for young professionals and families. Schools in the area are a huge pull and include Redland Green School, Colston’s Girls’ School, Redland High School for Girls and Cotham School.
On the waterfront and harbourside there are predominantly purpose built apartments and townhouses which appeal to a wide audience and many of which enjoy views across the floating harbour.
When considering properties outside Bristol city centre, the villages of Abbots Leigh, Leigh Woods, Failand and Wraxall provide easy access to Bristol, as well as the motorway network. Further afield is the Chew Valley, Wrington Vale and beyond and there is a huge demand for properties for sale where outside space and the way of living is very different to that of the city. The same applies to South Gloucestershire, with great village properties in and around Thornbury heading up towards Wickwar, again with the huge benefit of direct access to the M5 motorway and Bristol Parkway train station.

Living in Bristol
The City of Bristol is often seen as the gateway to the South West and it has never been more apparent with Great Western’s main rail line being electrified, bringing Paddington Station closer to Bristol. We have already seen a notable increase in buyers moving into the area. Huge infrastructure projects such as this will only help promote Bristol as a destination for London commuters. In addition to the rail link, the city has excellent road links to the east and west of England via the M4 and the north and south of England via the M5. For those wishing to travel further afield, Bristol Airport is 8 miles to the south of Bristol.
You cannot fail to see the abundance of Georgian and Regency architecture in Bristol, particularly around the area of Clifton where our office is based. The city has a vibrant social and cultural scene including the Bristol Old Vic Theatre. St George’s is a world class auditorium and Colston Hall and the Hippodrome provide concerts and shows throughout the year.
Bristol has a maritime history and the harbour is a natural point of historic reference. The SS Great Britain has previously won the ‘Museum of the Year’ award and there is a permanent mooring for The Matthew, replica of the Caravel sailed by John Cabot in 1497 from Bristol to North America and the M Shed is a museum dedicated to telling the story of the city through objects and stories of people from the city. The harbour is also home to the Bristol Harbour Festival, one of the UK’s largest public festivals.
The city has a large pull for families due to the schooling. It boasts several exceptional schools such as Clifton College, Badminton School for Girls, Bristol Grammar School, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Clifton High School; amongst others. A short distance out of Bristol is The Downs School, a popular preparatory school, whilst further afield there is Wells Cathedral School in Wells, Millfield in Street, Downside in Stratton on the Fosse and Sidcot, near Winscombe.
Beyond the city limits are the rich green pastures of Somerset, famous for the Mendip Hills which have stunning views of Blagdon Lake, Chew Valley Lake and the Somerset Levels. To the north of Bristol the office incorporates the Vale of Berkeley between the River Severn and The Cotswold Edge.
