An individual detached family home standing in a prime Nailsea avenue with an exceptional garden that is walled to the front and south facing with lovely mature landscaping to the rear. Though post war the style of the house is very much of the 1930's with light, bright well-proportioned rooms arranged around a generous reception hall and galleried landing. The house also offers great potential to enlarge if ever more space is required.
This charming family home is available for the first time in over thirty years and only due to a relocation out of the area. Over the years the owners have clearly loved their property which has a lovely welcoming atmosphere with many traditional original features including an attractive reception hall with herringbone pattern woodblock flooring (a theme that continues through to both reception rooms) and a quarter return staircase rising up to a galleried landing above.
The reception hall leads to both the living room and the dining room with the kitchen to the rear. Both reception rooms overlook the front and rear gardens with the living room having patio doors to a terrace and the lawns at the rear.
There are open fireplaces in each room and both have moulded picture rails.
The kitchen also enjoys an outlook to the rear with a stable door giving access to the garden. There are a good range of fitted wall and floor cupboards and ample worksurfaces, while space is available for various appliances and a full size slot in cooker.
On the first floor the galleried landing circulates to three comfortable bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and all bedrooms can accommodate a double bed and the two larger rooms again take advantage of a double aspect.
The house is approached via double wrought iron gates set in a natural stone wall that forms the front boundary.
The gates open to a drive providing parking and leading to the attached GARAGE with a metal up and over door, light, power, an oil fired boiler supplying hot water and central heating and a personnel door to a lobby that leads to the garden, a walk in store and a WC.
The gardens at the front are laid mainly to lawn with shaped borders planted with a variety of shrubs and bushes.
A path and gate lead via the side of the house to the rear where a the level lawn is framed by a fabulous selection of mature trees that were planted by a former owner of the property who was an accomplished Arbor culturalist who planted the borders with a number of rarer specimen evergreen trees. An pathway past an established Rhododendron leads to the far section of the gardens which is again laid mostly to lawn but here there are several productive fruit trees.
The garden faces virtually due south and enjoys a high degree of privacy.
Ash Hayes Road is one of the older lanes in Nailsea and has developed over time with properties of various periods from 18th century cottages to new individual homes. There are several pre and post war houses that were built by a well-known local building and we understand this house to have been and first occupied by him and his family.
The position is excellent with easy access to the town centre, the excellent local schools that include Golden Valley and St. Francis School. The parkland of Golden Valley and Scotch Horn is close by together with Nowhere Wood and the town centre that is less than a 10 minute walk away.
Nailsea enjoys easy road connections to all major centres in the area including Bristol that is just 8 miles away. In addition, junctions 19 and 20 of the M5 are both within 6 miles and the main line railway station offering local and intercity services with direct trains to Bristol and London-Paddington is again within walking distance on the edge of the neighbouring village of Backwell. In addition, Nailsea is on a SUSTRANS national cycle route with a cycle path directly to Bristol.
