- Please click on the brochure link/icon for full details
An individual architect designed 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom family home in an extremely attractive position far away from busy roads, in this highly desirable area of Nailsea, adjoining picturesque parkland.
The house offers extensive 3 reception room accommodation, with optional fourth reception room or ground floor bedroom suite, and 4 first-floor bedrooms, plus two more bathrooms.
Throughout, the property presents very well. The colour schemes are very easy on the eye, with a real designer feel and some lovely architectural touches. The house also flows nicely, and the main living rooms are arranged to take full advantage of this charming and quite unique setting. Quietly hidden away from traffic, the mature parkland on two sides and bungalows to the south ensure the privacy of this remarkable location.
The house could hardly be better placed for amenities, with the park being just one of the benefits of the position. The most sought after infant and junior schools are a 2-minute walk away, the town centre is a 5-minute level walk, the station is a 15-minute stroll, a gym and health centres are about 5 minutes away. Open countryside, and the edge of Nailsea, is easily accessed via a nearby broad footpath that joins the SUSTRANS cycle way.
The House and Garden:
The extensive living space has a great feel, while the proportions are right in so many ways!
A welcoming reception hall gives an immediate impression of space and rises to a galleried landing above, flooded with natural light by Velux windows set into the high half-vault ceiling. A cloakroom is arranged off the hall and there are doors to all ground floor rooms (except the utility room).
The living room is superb and the woodburning stove, set on a slate hearth with slate fire-back, will make this room very cosy. The French doors and matching full-drop windows draw the eye to the deck and private south facing rear garden.
The exceptional dining room/family room is another superb feature of the house and is large enough to suit a variety of uses, while the dual aspect bi-fold doors open the room beautifully to the deck and terrace, really drawing the living space into the garden.
Adjoining the dining room/family room there is a generous, well equipped kitchen that is furnished with a full range of contemporary Shaker style cabinets with space for a full array of appliances, such as an American style fridge freezer, dishwasher and range cooker. The kitchen opens to a utility room and overlooks a sizeable slate-paved terrace at the side of the house, with a casement window and a series of Velux windows above, again part of the imaginative design of the house - a simple addition that makes such a difference to the room.
The space at the side of the house also offers scope for enlargement of the existing kitchen if required – not at all necessary given the current ample dimensions but very fashionable. There is also the option to open the wall between the kitchen and family room/dining room if required, combining the two as one very large room with direct garden access.
A study off the hall provides space to work from home and a further comfortable reception room may optionally serve as a larger double room with a full shower room en suite. The positioning of this bedroom, the fifth, on the ground floor works for those with dependant relatives, older teenagers, or visitors that might not like to use the stairs, adding to flexibility of the property.
The galleried landing opens to a bathroom and the first-floor bedrooms. All the bedrooms are of good dimensions, two of which have eaves storage access. The principal room includes a walk-in wardrobe which is almost of dressing room proportions and there is a shower room en suite.
The rooms have a very calm atmosphere, partly due to the peaceful position so far removed from road traffic, but also because of the soft dappled light that filters through the lovely selection of specimen trees to the west. The trees do not rob the lawn and deck of sunshine but create a very appealing backdrop.
To the front of the house, accessed along a private drive with one neighbour, is the detached garage, sitting in the north west corner of the property. The privacy of this house and garden is excellent with timber fencing, established hedges and mature trees almost entirely screening the property.
