Full description

THIS HOME OFFERS A TRUE SLICE OF NAILSEA HISTORY! Dating back to before 1656 (records show it was sold at that time for £68!), this is a Grade II listed property full of character & features. John Lucas, who opened Nailsea Glassworks in 1788, bought the property in 1810 & sometime after that, Noah's Ark was split into two dwellings with this home being the left hand property of the two. My clients have lived here for 20 years & have enhanced the style & character of this amazing property. It provides a spacious family home with attractively laid out & well proportioned accommodation comprising 5 bedrooms & 2 reception rooms spread over 3 floors, with two of the bedrooms having a shower. There are two staircases & an abundance of features including exposed stone walls, old wood flooring & super fireplaces. The home is situated in a quiet location yet literally a couple of hundred meters from Nailsea's town centre & superb Academy school. Golden Valley & St. Francis Primary schools are both also very close to hand. THIS IS A RARITY INDEED!

(Framed family tree is not included)
Amazing research & a "family tree" has been done of the owners of Noah's Ark since it was sold 350 years ago for £68.
In March 1810, John Robert Lucas purchased the property. John Lucas was a cooper & owned a glass cone in Nailsea. In 1788, Lucas had opened Nailsea Glassworks on adjoining land.
Please note - the framed family tree is not included in the sale of the property.
