DESCRIPTION An exceptional detached residence situated within an exclusive gated development 'Brackenwood Gardens' in Portishead with outstanding views of the Bristol Channel.

This superb modern home is arranged over three principal floors and offers a stylish and impressive interior with many bespoke design features. The spacious layout which exudes a wonderful amount of natural light, offers huge flexibility with a real emphasis on entertaining. Of particular note is the majestic double height living room, complete with balcony, which offers outstanding views over the Severn Estuary towards the Welsh Coast and is open to a stunning second floor mezzanine reception.

Access to the property is gained on the ground floor whereupon you enter a welcoming and spacious entrance hallway with stairs rising to the first floor. There is a stylish master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite, bedroom four which is a generous double room with fitted wardrobes, a family bathroom and internal access to the double garage and access to the utility room.

Stairs rise to the first floor and a spacious landing from which the views there give an example of the glorious views to come. The landing leads to a living room to the front elevation which is dramatic in its appeal with an outstanding outlook. There is an atmospheric dining room of real character between the living room and the kitchen, ideal for dinner parties. The kitchen / breakfast room is another wonderful room with a large array of wall and base high gloss cupboards making it the perfect space to host informal dining and socialising whilst showing off your culinary skills. The kitchen enjoys a built-in electric oven, gas hob with canopy extractor hood, integrated microwave oven, dishwasher and space for an American style fridge freezer. On the first floor there is also a modern family bathroom, bedroom three with an en-suite shower room and finally bedroom five. Access can be gained to the rear courtyard garden via double French doors from both bedroom five and the kitchen/breakfast room.

The second floor comprises bedroom two with en-suite, which offers a generous amount of storage under the eaves with the landing area giving access to the fantastic mezzanine living space with steel balustrades which overlook the main living room and takes full advantage of the breathtaking views towards the Severn Estuary. This extremely unusual and flexible space could be used for a host of different purposes including a home office, relaxing retreat/reading area or second living room for kids. The property further benefits from a double garage, two parking spaces, under-croft storage and secure gated access.

This absolutely superb modern home is situated just off Nore Road in Portishead with varying amenities situated nearby including a 9 hole golf course, Portishead Lido and the Lake grounds, and The Windmill, a popular local pub and restaurant. The main shops of the High Street are also situated nearby and the town is blessed with many excellent local primary and secondary Schools, several large supermarkets and its very own wonderful Marina. EPC rating C. 

DIRECTIONS From junction 18 of M5 take exit towards Portishead and proceed along the Portbury Hundred. At the roundabout take the second exit onto Wyndham Way, at the next roundabout continue straight over and continue along Wyndham Way. At the end of Wyndham Way take a right at the mini roundabout onto High Street and then exit first left at the roundabout onto Cabstand. Continue up Cabstand as it changes into Nore Road. Proceed along Nore Road for approximately 1 mile and you will find Brackenwood Gardens on the left. 

SITUATION Portishead is magnificently situated, with sweeping views of the Severn Estuary, the Welsh coastline, both Severn bridges to one side and the beautiful and scenic Gordano Valley to the other. The picturesque Lake Grounds offer plenty of space for children to play, and is ideal for relaxing, admiring the spectacular views or watching the cricket or bowls. This is a great place to picnic, and refreshments are also available from the café. Portishead's stylish new marina development Port Marine houses up to 150 boats and has been developed as the centrepiece of a large urban renewal programme. The area is well worth a visit, to see the luxury homes being developed and the striking public art. The work of several internationally acclaimed sculptors is on view here. Nearby attractions include a zoo farm, a fascinating farm and retail museum, and superb National Trust houses and gardens. Portishead is also highly convenient for the M5 motorway and Bristol. 

WE HAVE NOTICED This absolutely magnificent contemporary house is a perfect match for those with a hectic social life and who love to entertain at home. The property has a real wow factor with views that are truly stunning. The first floor balcony is a superb space from which to enjoy a late night tipple whilst taking in the breathtaking sunsets along the west facing coastal views. This is a real lifestyle house which is as impressive as it is vast.
