Nailsea Park, Nailsea £579,950

A very fine 4 bedroom Edwardian family home standing in about a 1/4 acre of level garden in the sought after Nailsea Park area, ideally placed within easy reach of the town centre, the highly regarded local schools and parkland.

This impressive property dates from the early years of the twentieth century and in style, is all a good quality house of the period should be, with elegantly proportioned reception rooms, a light and airy feel and excellent interior space. The accommodation is enriched with a host of original features and has, in recent years, been lovingly and very tastefully restored and enlarged with great care taken to ensure that all new works blend well with the original to create a very comfortable home in this sought after setting.

The history of these properties in Nailsea Park is partially uncertain but it is believed that the houses here were speculatively built as part of an effort that was ultimately successful to attract "wealthy Bristol commuters to the village". These properties were built at the extreme eastern end of the former Nailsea Glass Works that had closed in 1873 on the site of the original stable blocks and blacksmiths shop.

Then as now, the position enjoys an open outlook over the former heath land that became Nailsea Park and perhaps this is why the former Glass Works manager’s house stands close to this one with the benefit of a similarly attractive view towards Wraxall. Nailsea offers a wide range of amenities including Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets together with many other nationally known retailers and independent shops. In addition, there are good road connections to the larger centres in the area including the City of Bristol that is just 8 miles away with good public transport links.

A mainline railway station in the neighbouring village of Backwell provides local and Intercity services with direct trains to London – Paddington. Junctions’ 19 and 20 of the M5 are also both within 6 miles and Bristol Airport is also just over 6 miles distant, perfect for business and pleasure flights but Nailsea does not suffer from any low level air traffic.

Though the house stands well back from Nailsea Park the side and rear gardens are of excellent size and are laid mainly to level lawn that enjoys a high degree of privacy. An extensive paved patio that is flanked by floral borders adjoins the south elevation of the house. The lawn is partially divided by a local stone wall that may be a remnant of the original Glass Works stable yard and much of the rear garden is bounded by local stone walls. At the bottom of the garden, there is a timber framed log – garden store and a Single Garage with a metal up and over door, light, power and a personnel door to the side. In addition, space is available to create a double garage if required and a planning application has recently been submitted to North Somerset Council for a double garage with an office space above and a separate Orangery adjoining the kitchen, breakfast room and dining room. Further details of this planning application are available from the agents.
