About Hanham

Hanham

Hanham is a village on the outskirts of Bristol and situated on the A431 between Bristol and Bath.
The village is reported to have one of the oldest public houses in Britain, The Blue Bowl and is the site of Hanham Lock on the River Avon.
Hanham has a fine secondary school, Hanham High, which was attended by amongst others, Stephen Merchant of The Office & Extras.
Properties in Hanham tend to range from the Victorian style two and three bedroom terraces, ideal for the young family, to the traditional 1930’s style semis.

St George & Redfield

St. George and Redfield sit approximately 1 mile west of our offices.
Predominantly Victorian terrace properties, the area are an ideal place to begin your journey onto the property ladder. Given the areas proximity to Bristol City centre, transport and access to the City is incredibly convenient.
Local landmarks include the Victorian drinking fountain which divides the main Church Road which forks at this point to Kingswood and Hanham as well as the large St. Georges Park.
The area is serviced by trendy cafeterias, a supermarket and local convenience stores.

Kingswood

Kingswood is an urban area in South Gloucestershire which borders on the City of Bristol to the west.
It is located along the A420 which connects Bristol to Chippenham. In more recent years, a ring road was built which runs around the edge of Kingswood and provides excellent transport links to the neighbouring areas.
The property in Kingswood is quite varied and ranges from stylish modern apartments, ideal for the first time buyer or investor, through to more traditional terraces and semis.
On the outskirts of Kingswood, can be found more larger properties as well as a few small developments of modern detached family homes.
The main high street bustles with activity and boasts its own shopping precinct, supermarket, banks, cafés and restaurants.

Warmley

Warmley is the site of the old Midland Railway which has now become a very popular cycle path.
The area itself up until the 1980’s was made up mainly of traditional stone cottages and farm workers dwellings however, since the creation of the Avon Ring Road, the area has dramatically changed.
Warmley is now predominantly modern homes ranging from flats to executive detached property. The area has a modern, low maintenance feel to the type of homes found here and is an area popular with the business class.
The area has several local gastro pubs, convenience stores and a large ASDA supermarket.

Longwell Green & Willsbridge

The area which encompasses both Longwell Green & Willsbridge is located just outside the east fringe of Bristol.
Until recently, a relatively small rural area however, parts of the area were developed into new housing in the 1980’s forming an area of mixed housing ranging from the traditional to modern.
The centre of Longwell Green is based along the A431 Bath Road, a Roman road which originally linked Bristol with Bath.
Willsbridge, located slightly further east along the Bath Road is still somewhat semi rural. Here you will find both small cottages filled with character as well as larger rural properties.

Easton, Whitehall & Lawrence Hill
Easton is an inner city area of the city. Informally the area is considered to stretch east of Bristol city centre and the M32 motorway, centred around Lawrence Hill. Its southern and eastern borders are less defined, merging into St Philips Marsh and Eastville. The area includes the Lawrence Hill and Barton Hill estates.
The Census 2001 reports Easton has a younger average age than that of England and Wales.
St Marks Road in northern Easton includes one of Britain’s highest rated vegetarian restaurants (by the British Vegetarian Society 2004), as well as Moroccan and Indian subcontinent restaurants and shops specialising in organic and ethnic foods, further reinforcing the area's reputation as 'alternative'. The northern Stapleton Rd area near the train station is also witnessing redevelopment and investment with a large Asian store soon to open in a derelict property, and a vegetarian bakery just opened.
The areas housing is made up predominatley of Victorian terrace homes and converted flats ideal for the first time purchaser.

Andrew Gilbertson-Franchisee

 

Andrew Gilbertson is both the franchisee and branch manager of CJ Hole Hanham. Residing locally to Hanham, Andrew has been involved with residential estate agency for over 20 years and in that time, has built up an extensive knowledge of the business.

 

‘I have always tried to keep up to date with current legislation and the changes to the house buying and selling process which have occurred since my first job in agency back in 1987.

 

In those days, I was a wide eyed office junior who’s main job seemed to be holding the end of the branch managers measuring tape and being dragged around from one house to another!’

‘Thankfully, we now use all the latest technology to help property sellers and tape measures have been replaced by accurate laser measuring equipment’

 

Andrew has seen many changes during his time at CJ Hole but none more so than the challenging period of the last couple of years.

 

‘I think a lot of people’s perceptions of Estate Agents has changed over the last couple of years, we are a hard working team who strive to provide really good service to our clients’

‘It’s not about erecting a ‘For Sale’ board and hoping for the best – It’s about good communication, innovative marketing and advertising, working closely with both your buyers and sellers in order to find out what drives them but most of all, its about the team you work with – and I have a great one!’

 

Out from behind the desk and away from CJ Hole, Andrew enjoys listening to music, swimming and is a keen motorcyclist.
