An imposing, five-bedroom detached house with far-reaching estuary views in one of Portishead's most desirable locations, the beautiful Lake Grounds. This much-loved family home - just minutes walk from the High Street - was built in the 1930s and has been substantially extended over the years yet still retains many original features including oak flooring and stained glass windows.
The ground floor features two large reception rooms, a cloakroom, utility room and capacious adjoining garage. Upstairs there are five bedrooms - one ensuite - and a master bathroom. The fifth bedroom has been used as an office complete with balcony and enviable views to Wales.
Visitors are greeted in a lofty hallway with original lattice-work staircase which rises past a unique floor-to-ceiling stained glass window to a galleried landing. The main lounge is a bright and airy double-aspect room with doors to the front and rear where they lead to a newly-laid patio and good-sized, enclosed, south-facing garden with lawn. The lounge also has a cosy snug at one end.
The second lounge is currently used as a dining room with bay window with views to the water. Both rooms have living flame gas fires. Adjoining the dining room through double doors is the kitchen with slate tiled floor, wooden work surfaces, double oven with gas rings, dishwasher and spacious storage units. A door leads to a utility room with plumbing for washing machine, sink and freezer.
A further internal door opens to the garage which has power and water and easily fits a family car with over 8ft to spare. A good-sized cloakroom completes the ground floor where there is also a large storage area under the stairs.
The upper floor features a master bedroom with dual aspects, the front looking over the Lake Grounds, and en suite with toilet and shower. The second bedroom is perhaps even more impressive with bay window and commanding lookout. The remaining three bedrooms are all of good size with one having a vanity unit and the fifth as the study with balcony and view.
To the front there is off-street parking for four cars and the house has been recently fitted with a new gas central heating boiler and the heating has been updated.
The present owners are downsizing and it is anticipated there will be a high degree of interest in this property.
Outside - The enclosed garden lies to the rear of the property where a large paved terrace can be found which enjoys a most delightful southerly orientation. The remainder of the garden is lawned with raised flower and shrub borders with a paved path giving access to across the back of the house and to the rear of the tandem garage. The garage offers plenty of additional storage space with the added benefit of having electric light and power connected, a driveway provides ample off road parking to the front.
Location - Portishead itself has seen great investment over the last five years, adding to its popularity and facilities which include a stunning Marina, Waitrose supermarket, a recently refurbished Lido as well as a number of small boutiques, eateries and larger facilities. Portishead is increasingly popular with families and couples alike of all ages who embrace the outdoor life, many taking advantage of the good schools, golf course, coastal walks as well as access to the M5 motorway network at junction 19. For commuters Bristol city centre is 10 miles away and Bristol Temple Meads or Parkway are used for high speed train links to London Paddington in 90 minutes. Bristol International airport has flights throughout the world and is some 12 miles to the south of the property. There will also be a new train link directly to Bristol.
