Portbury Priors is situated in the ancient village of Portbury which is convenient close to junction 19 of the M5 motorway, a short drive from Bristol Airport, Bristol Temple Meads station and Bristol Parkway. Clifton Village offers an eclectic range of independent boutiques and restaurants and vibrant Portishead with it's smart marina has a bustling High Street, leisure centre and a large supermarket and Waitrose store. The locality offers a selection of private and state schooling including the Downs School, Portbury Primary C of E School, Clifton College, Clifton High School and Bristol Grammar School. A 900 year old church in the village is very active with good community activities around the village hall in Portbury.
Built circa 1450 this fascinating and rambling renaissance property is imbued with a rich history, located in one of North Somerset's lesser known villages but once a Roman settlement and the principal town of the region. Portbury's importance was cemented by the establishment of it's own Priory and as such Portbury Priors was a perfectly ecclesiastical location to house the local abbot. Following the reformation and the dissolution of the Priory, Portbury Priors reputedly became a court house. With the passing of time and following a sympathetic restoration project, the house is now presented as a spacious and comfortable family home, principally divided into three sections with no fewer than 9 bedrooms on the upper floors - enough to accommodate even the largest family. The current owner recalls a recent Christmas when they were host to 23 resident guests! One of the property's highlights is the breathtaking 17 ft square master bedroom still retaining an ecclesiastical air with an incredibly high vaulted ceiling. The ground floor reception rooms are impressive and of a proportion appropriate to a home of this stature, the elegant drawing room with panelled walls and a further informal sitting room, a comfortable room with a fine open sandstone fireplace. The grand reception hall expands the length of the building and leads at either end to two staircases and immediately opposite the front door is a wonderful timber panelled dining room with vast mullion windows overlooking the rear garden. In addition to the spacious kitchen/breakfast room with Aga stove, there is a second kitchen/laundry room, a walk in pantry and the ground floor also has a bedroom with en suite shower room with potential to expand into a separate annexe.
The attractive rear garden incorporates a generously size lawn, a further lawned area with fountain and enclosed area with pretty pond, garden well and a host of colourful shrubs and flowers. It is worth noting that the garden can also be accessed from the rear with further parking large enough for a caravan or boat.
Square Footage: 4,485 sq ft
