A collection of seven exclusive properties housed within a beautifully converted Grade II Listed school building in Clifton has been launched by Kersfield Developments.

Overlooking the Durdham Downs, The School House development offers modern luxurious living with a Tudor-Gothic twist and is being marketed by joint agents Savills and Ocean.

The former St John’s Church of England primary school was built in 1850 and closed in 1979. Bristol City Council then reopened the building as a district office, though much of the original architecture was hidden from view during that time.

Comprising a walled development that encloses five three bedroom houses and two two bedroom mews properties, The School House has been purposely designed to maximise the generous open plan living space and panoramic views offered from the property.

The architecture of this treasured Victorian building has been sensitively considered throughout the design process by Kersfield Developments. In stripping back the building to its original timber trusses and classrooms, these homes are spacious, well-appointed and enjoy a range of historical features throughout.

Each of the properties includes a high specification of fixtures and fittings, including oak engineered flooring, wood panelling, oak doors and bespoke kitchens with integrated appliances. There is also an electronic gate to the courtyard, secure parking and each home has an entry phone system.

Dan Harris of Savills says, “The School House is a highly recognisable local property, particularly thanks to its iconic diaper patterned roof, and in the process of converting The School House to a luxury living space, the architects and designers have breathed new life into the building, thus revealing its historic charm.

“Given the exclusive address, the high specification of the homes and the stunning views, I would encourage any interested buyers to get in touch at their earliest convenience.”

Situated in Clifton and overlooking the Durdham Downs, the development is just a short walk away from a number of banks, bars, cafés, the local Post Office, fine eateries, a Tesco Metro and Waitrose.

Clifton is well connected by both road and rail, and is within easy reach of Bristol’s international airport. Situated close to where the M4 and M5 intersect, Clifton boasts excellent transport routes to London and other parts of the UK.
