DESCRIPTION Set on Weston Hillside in a prominent yet tucked away spot overlooking a private park is 5 Eastfield Park, a prestigious and historic Victorian detached house benefiting from expansive accommodation and fantastic coastal views. The property is a grand detached house, with ornate period features and high ceilings common to the period, yet as an added bonus it also has a separate basement apartment with its own entrance, the perfect opportunity for a little extra rental income or for additional accommodation if one so wished. The current vendors have owned the property for 26 years and in that period have undertaken numerous works to both enhance and complement the already impressive living space, yet, there is still much potential for a buyer with vision to put their own stamp on things updating wise.

The substantial (and I mean substantial) accommodation measures approximately 3,800 sq ft, and is set over two floors (in the main house), offering numerous character features mixed with modern touches. On the ground floor an entrance porch opens into a large hallway with access to a 21' living room and 21' dining room. There is a study, a snug, a fitted kitchen and a good sized breakfast room, along with a downstairs bathroom. On the first floor there is an impressive 24' landing leading to six good sized bedrooms with four en suites and a family bathroom. Honestly, the scale of this living space is matched only by its versatility, and indeed it really could be a lot of things to a lot of differing buyers. However, coupled with the practicality of the space, aesthetically, there are original period features wherever one looks, from window shutters to cornicing, from fireplaces to ceiling roses, the character is intact. The cherry on the top however, with huge potential for a rental income or as ancillary accommodation, is the one bedroom basement apartment with its own entrance. This comprises a kitchen, living/dining room, large double bedroom and bathroom, a fantastic added bonus space with its own heating system to boot.

5 Eastfield Park is set in an impressive tucked away plot, in a no through road overlooking a private park on the hillside great for amenities, schools and transport routes, and of course the beach. A sweeping 'in and out' drive provides substantial off street parking and circles a central formal garden area. This leads to two garages and has steps up to the paved side terrace area with gate to the rear garden and access to the front door. The rear garden has been terraced for easy maintenance with a pond area and numerous seating areas perfect for barbecuing or al fresco dining, there is an outside utility room and a boiler cupboard also. As mentioned the views are stunning from the front of the property, they really do need to be seen to be believed, far reaching as they are, across the park and Weston-super-Mare, along the coast and out to sea, with some beautiful sunsets. And while we're talking about the park, it is for use of the residents of Eastfield Park only, and is a mature, well tended lawned parkland space with array of mature trees.

For a buyer wanting real potential, prestige, grandness and charm, with a character packed, yet versatile living accommodation and scope for dual occupation then 5 Eastfield Park ticks all the boxes. EPC rating F. 

DIRECTIONS Proceeding into Weston-super-Mare on the B3440 Locking Road proceed past Worle school on your left and the BP garage on your right and take a right at the next roundabout into Baytree Road. Continue straight on and over the traffic lights, up the hill and take a left turn at the top at the junction into Upper Bristol Road. Continue for approximately a mile and the road will become Bristol Road Lower, continue on, passing the park on your right hand side and on the bend take a right turn into Arundell Road. Eastfield Park is the first turn off on your right hand side and Number five can be found a little way down on your left hand side. 

SITUATION The town centre of Weston-super-Mare is just a short drive away and amenities include the indoor Sovereign Shopping Centre, doctors, dentists, museum, library, cinema, theatre as well as Weston sea front, promenade and Grand Pier. There are state schools in Lympsham and Weston-super-Mare, and for independent education, Sidcot is an excellent private school just 4 miles away in Winscombe, while Bristol, Taunton, Glastonbury and Street also offer a wide variety of schools. The M5 is within easy reach as is the mainline railway at Weston. Bristol Airport is an easy drive to the north with its scheduled and low cost flights, both national and international. The countryside is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits within a short drive. 

WE HAVE NOTICED The sheer scale of 5 Eastfield Park really does take the breath away, and it was obviously built to impress, with its grand reception rooms and bays and its private residents' park. Yet, the property still has a huge amount of potential for a buyer with vision to put their own stamp on things, both internally which perhaps could do with a little updating, and in the apartment. Trust us, this grand Victorian residence really must be seen to be fully appreciated, and as it is offered with no chain we highly recommend an early viewing.
