DESCRIPTION Built in c1870, Kingscliffe was originally constructed to house the local Quarry Master and his family. Built of stone sourced from the nearby Quarry under a fabulous slate tiled roof the gracious and well proportioned property extends over three storeys and offers superb flexibility in terms of the accommodation.

The property displays a wealth of original features including ornate cornices, ceiling roses, period fireplaces and some shuttered sash windows. Many of the rooms also enjoy either dual or triple aspects with high ceilings and plenty of natural light.

On entering the ground floor the impressive entrance hallway gives an immediate sense of the grandeur and scale of the property with a sweeping period staircase rising to the first floor accommodation and descending to the ground floor. Situated off the entrance hallway are three generous reception rooms including a bay fronted drawing room, triple aspect withdrawing room and dining room/library or home Office. Each individual room is blessed with a wonderful feature fireplace which creates a lovely focal point to the room. Also situated on the ground floor is a smart contemporary washroom/w.c and a useful store cupboard.

Descending to the lower ground floor you are greeted by a further plethora of useful and flexible rooms that could serve a variety of purposes. The main focal point to the lower ground floor is the impressive kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of modern white glass wall and base units and a superb breakfast bar/island unit. There is space for a range cooker recessed into the chimney breast and included within the kitchen are several white goods including the essential wine cooler. There is also space for an additional breakfast table should it be required and French doors to the garden. The kitchen creates a sharp modern contrast to the refined period character of the rest of the house and is an exceptional space from which to entertain visiting guests. A generous and atmospheric dining room is situated alongside the kitchen/diner for your more refined formal dinner parties.

In addition to the kitchen and dining room there is a further reception room which could be utilised as a cinema room/bedroom 5 or indeed play room for children. The lower ground floor is also served by a large modern bathroom with the superb added benefit of an integrated Sauna ideal for easing the aches and pains of everyday life. You will also find useful additional storage spaces and an ample sized utility room.

Four bedrooms and a lavish family bathroom/wet room are situated on the top floor of the house with the master bedroom and guest bedroom both enjoying superb outlooks towards the Bristol Channel. There is also ample attic storage accessed off the first floor landing.

Externally the property occupies a larger than average mature plot that is enclosed by the original stone walls. The garden is in the majority south & west in aspect and enjoys a high degree of privacy, a level patio area sits alongside the kitchen/diner providing the perfect space for al fresco dining and to the rear of the property is a useful store/wine cellar.

A generous gravelled parking area provides space for a good number of vehicles and has the potential for a garage or car port to be constructed if desired.

Large family houses with the generous proportions of Kingscliffe are an extremely rare find indeed. The flexibility and versatility of the property could suit a multitude of purposes and the house could easily be occupied by several generations of the same family or indeed provide useful additional income by way of sub letting (air B&B) or perhaps even a small guest house.
 

DIRECTIONS Proceeding west along Milton Road into Weston towards Weston Boulevard, turn right at the traffic lights onto Albert Quadrant which continues onto Arundel Road and then go straight on up the hill, over Bristol Road Lower until turning left at the T junction onto Cecil Road. Proceed to the end of Cecil Road until you meet the entrance to the old quarry on your right and you meet Queens Road and the property can be found just opposite you on the other side of the road. 

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 Kingscliffe House is a very special property indeed, saved by our current owner by painstakingly and meticulously renovating this impressive house room by room and now restored it to its former glory as a fine and gracious family home. The property is ideally located away from the busy town centre itself and yet it is still within easy walking distance. The popular sea front and nearby Grove Park are also situated close by.
