DESCRIPTION The property is a sprawling delight, that at each turn offers charm, character and warmth alongside excellent reception and bedroom space. There is also huge scope to do more. Our current vendors have secured planning permission for two further dwellings within the grounds, that offer an unrivalled opportunity for the eventual purchaser to add further value to an already impressive property. 

SITUATION Nailsea is a suburban town of North Somerset, approximately 8 miles (13 km) southwest of Bristol. The town was an industrial centre based on coal mining in the 16th century and glass manufacture from 1788, which have now been replaced by service industries. The surrounding North Somerset Levels has wildlife habitats and Bucklands Pool/Backwell Lake is a Local Nature Reserve. The well populated town centre includes two major supermarkets, high street banks, coffee shops and a leisure centre. Nailsea is close to the M5 motorway (junction 20) and Bristol International Airport at Lulsgate is 7 miles (11 km) away by road. The airport serves both domestic and international routes, and is one of EasyJet's hub airports. Secondary education is provided by Nailsea School (rebuilt as an Academy in 2009), and primary education by St Francis School, Grove School, Kingshill School and Golden Valley. Churches include the 14th-century Holy Trinity Church and Christ Church, which was built in 1843.

 

DIRECTIONS From our office in Dark Lane in Backwell, travel in the direction of Nailsea through the traffic lights on to Station Road. Proceed under the railway bridge and after passing over Backwell Common take the first right hand turning into Bucklands Grove. The property will then be found on the left hand side shortly down the lane. 

OUR VENDOR SAYS The house has many original features including pretty oriel windows, moulded cornicing, picture rails, tall mounded skirting, period fireplaces and a servant bell system. 

WE HAVE NOTICED It is rare that such a distinctive home enters the market in Nailsea, offering such tremendous scope to either develop the generous plot or to simply enjoy as a wonderful family home. It's the sort of property you aspire to own and watch growing generations of your family spend time together in.

 

PLANNING INFORMATION: The construction of two detached houses have been approved by North Somerset Council. Further information can be found here:
