Horwood Road, Nailsea Guide Price £595,000

An outstanding 1930’s 5 bedroom family home offering well appointed accommodation that is full of charm and is particularly light and airy. The main rooms are arranged to take advantage of the lovely outlook over the beautiful mature south and west facing private gardens and beyond to the playing fields of Nailsea school.

The setting is superb while, the extensive accommodation includes a reception hall, a cloakroom, a delightful sitting room - family room, an 18' x 18' living room with a wood burning stove, a new 22' x 14' kitchen - dining room, a utility room, 4 double bedrooms and a fifth single room, a family bathroom and en suite facilities.

The property is understood to date from 1932 though, over the years, this and the adjoining house has been considerably enlarged, this property having been then owned by an architect who did the design work for both. Throughout, the accommodation is bright and airy and retains many charming features while, the main living areas are arranged to enjoy the outlook to the west over the gardens. In recent years, the property has been comprehensively updated with improvements having included an overhaul of the roof, rewiring, re-plumbing, the installation of a new gas central heating system, uPVC double glazed windows and uPVC fascias. The bathroom, cloakroom and WC have been refurbished and within the last few months, the kitchen-dining room has been completely refurbished creating a superb feature room that again overlooks the lovely mature gardens.

If even more accommodation is ever required, there is still scope for the house to grow since the loft lends itself to conversion and the existing integral garage could be converted subject to any necessary consent.

The gardens are a further feature and provide a particularly attractive setting with an extensive lawn at the rear that is framed by a lovely selection of trees, shrubs and bushes that offer good level of privacy but still offer a real feeling of space with the playing fields of Nailsea School away to the west.

Situation and Communications

Some of the finest individual homes in Nailsea can be found in this very well established, deservedly popular part of the town. The parkland of Golden Valley and Scotch Horn is close by together with Nowhere Wood and the town centre that is also within easy reach. The excellent local schools are also close by with Golden Valley, St. Francis and Nailsea schools all less than a 5 minute walk away.

Nailsea enjoys easy road connections to all major centres in the area including the City of Bristol 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.
