A superior detached 4 double bedroom family home affording well presented, light, airy accommodation standing in an superb private setting that offers a real feeling of space with beautiful mature gardens of over 1/4 acre. A further attraction will be the lovely panoramic views, extending far beyond the adjoining open countryside across the vale to Wraxall in the east, Bourton Combe and Backwell in the south and Cleeve Woods toward the west.
We are frequently favoured with instructions to handle many of the finer properties in these parishes and the writer of this brochure sold these properties on behalf of the original developers back in the mid 1980's. Consequently, we feel able to pass on the observation that this has always been thought of as one of the premier addresses in the town. Without exception there are no better located modern houses of the overall specification in Nailsea or Wraxall partly due to the views and partly due to the arrangement of the properties here with virtually every house having at least 1/5th acre of gardens by comparison with say The Elms where the build density is almost three times as high.
The close, which exclusively comprises some 30 four and five detached houses and this particular property, could hardly be better placed with a breadth of plot that not only creates a suitably impressive frame for the house but also allows space for enlargement to the side, forwards or backwards if ever more living was, or is required. This degree of flexibility is extraordinary and the setting would of course support a considerably more valuable house if such alterations were ever undertaken allowing one to acquire here ‘a house for life’ that can grow as needed and still enjoy an exceptional garden.
The house as arranged now is of course of good size and has clearly been cared for well and much loved over the years but with downsizing in mind our clients feel it is time to allow new custodians to take their turn and perhaps put their mark on the property. The accommodation is offered in pristine decorative order with neutral colour schemes and great attention to detail. The impression of space is immediate given the generous and very inviting reception hall that features a traditional return staircase that rises to the galleried landing above. The living room takes advantage of a double aspect with an attractive outlook to the front and patio doors leading to a full width terrace with the beautiful rear garden and views beyond. The kitchen and breakfast room (with an adjoining utility area) once more overlook and open to the rear gardens and the valley. From the hall there is also access to a cloakroom.
The landing leads to the four very comfortable bedrooms and the family bathroom with the principal bedroom having a further spacious bathroom en suite.
The rear garden is, even from the terrace, very deceiving with various ‘rooms’ or areas having been designed all with a differing feel. There is a full width flagstone and decked terrace, part sheltered by a pergola with an established Wisteria. The terrace leads to a broad sweep of lawn framed by floral borders and a variety of specimen shrubs with a deep border beyond that has a backdrop of lattice fencing, which appears to be at the bottom of the garden. However, pathways continue to further areas of garden past that section down to a hidden gravelled terrace and even more space past that. By the way, every area is private.
