We love a before and after visit even some years after selling this house to the present owner. In those days the house was decoratively about as nasty and scruffy as a relatively modern house can get but our clients saw the potential and loved the position, so they set about having the house transformed into a very comfortable family home that we are pleased to present today.
The quiet cul de sac position is just to the west of The Perrings and a little to the east of Holy Trinity Church with direct access via an attractive bridle way walk to the local shops in Old Church Road and just beyond to the highly regarded Grove and Hannah More Schools.
Nailsea town centre is also within easy walking distance and closer still is the Nailsea School campus and sporting facility. The town offers good day to day shopping with large Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, a pedestrianised shopping centre, excellent health centres and dental surgeries. We still have a bank and various independent retailers from a cycle shop to a gadget store, a hardware – department store and a TV and Hi-fi store in the High Street almost opposite Hensons.
Many more shops and businesses large and small help ensure that unemployment is very low and good communications to Bristol and other larger centres in the area are easy, especially with the mainline railway station on the southern edge of the town that offers direct trains to London-Paddington.
The house is the original developers premium 3-bedroom design of the several outwardly similar styles that were built at the time. The layout is both spacious and well planned with a light, bright almost square living room accessed from the entrance hall.
The dining area is semi open plan from the living room ensuring that the eye flows through the house and out to the private rear. The dining area in turn is open to the kicthen with a peninsular division between the two rooms offering the best of both arrangements, open plan and sociable without any real loss of storage space or work surface.
The kitchen is well equipped and includes space for a full range of appliances including an upright fridge freezer. There is granite effect laminate worktops and a matching inset Asterite sink. The oven-grill is built in with a matching hob and an illuminated chimney hood above. A glazed door leads out to the full width private patio area and a broad matching window again overlooks the garden.
The hall leads to the staircase that rises straight to the first floor where the part galleried landing opens to the bedrooms, the bathroom and a linen cupboard. There is also a hatch allowing access to the insulated loft
The principal bedroom is well proportioned, fitted with an excellent range of wardrobes and illuminated by a broad window that allows a more open feel enjoying an outlook to the front.
The second bedroom was designed as a double room too but works just as well as a twin room (ideal for sleep overs) and a drum studio as depicted.
Number three bedroom is a large than usual single room with a raised dais that works as a dressing table for the glamourous, a desk for the studious or the basis of a built-in wardrobe for the fashion conscious.
As part of the original program of restoration the back garden needed a compete dig out and start again and so to complement the very private full width paved patio an Astroturf lawn has been laid. The garden space is now useable all year round and the patio is large enough for outside entertaining.
The garages to the side add to the privacy of the garden and a shed at the bottom offers useful additional storage.
The front garden is neat and simple with a small area of natural lawn retained.
The house includes a Garage and parking space to the right of the terrace.
