The Property

Occupying a truly spectacular site on a promontory well above the river, the house was built by the owners 15 years ago to a very high specification.  Its architecture echoes that of the neighbouring building, an imposing Victorian school house, formerly Brightlands Prep school, now converted into apartments. All the rooms are generously proportioned and the layout is functional as well as stylish. Nearly all of the main rooms take advantage of the superb, ever changing views of the Severn estuary. Both the drawing room and master bedroom have balconies and the superb kitchen/breakfast room has picture windows facing 4 directions. The impressive entrance hall has a feature oak staircase leading to the lower ground floor, which is a large room with the potential for an indoor swimming pool and a shower room. This space could also provide self contained accommodation or be used as a gym or playroom.

Garden and Grounds

The house is approached via electrically operated gates leading to a gravelled parking area. The gardens have been terraced to provide three different levels, each with vantage points to enjoy the views.  There are some magnificent scots pine trees, mature shrub borders and a large lawned area. There is a south facing terrace with access from the kitchen/breakfast room and a productive vegetable garden next to the garage block.



Mains gas, water, electricity and drainage.
