Loxley House is certainly a property that looks impressive, both from a distance - it is visible almost right across Weston super Mare, but also upon closer inspection - High Ceilings and lots of windows that face out towards a stunning panoramic view reaching across virtually the whole town, right over to the Mendip Hills! What comes as a wonderful surprise is how much the house actually 'feels' like a Cottage, the stone construction, the way the house appears to rise up out of beautiful gardens edged with dry stone walling, and yes - the feel! It was this very sensation and the gardens which initially charmed the current owners to purchase the house originally and is surely this that will capture the heart of anyone looking for a wonderful home to retreat to after the Hussle and bustle of the modern world.

The current owners underwent a large amount of works once they had purchased the house, buyers will be pleased to hear that for an older house (Dating back to the turn of the century) there are modern electrics, recently installed gas central heating, quality UPVC double glazing throughout - ALL complete with integral blinds, and of course who could miss the fitted kitchen with granite worksurfaces! Offering FOUR BEDROOMS and TWO BATHROOMS on the first floor. A generous 21 ft Sitting Room complete with its walk-in bay window enjoying the best of the views, plus TWO FURTHER RECEPTION ROOMS and a good-sized Kitchen Dining Room on the ground floor. Flexibility is a word that can often be used too frequently to describe houses, Loxley House truly does offer a huge variety of uses; two full height cellar rooms and outbuildings mean that creating a self-contained apartment OR a home office space would be simple (Subject to relevant planning permissions).

The house is found at the end of narrow private lane leading from Balmoral Way, it leads to private parking area in front of a detached double garage. Steps lead up to the house through beautiful terraced garden and past ancient Fig Trees that create a virtual covered walk way. Every turn you start to gain glimpses of what all that have visited the house have confidently agreed really is a "Million Dollar View". There are lots of places that have been carefully created over the years by the owners to best enjoy the fantastic outlook from differing positions and different times of day. These views are so impressive that you could be forgiven in walking through the garden without realising just how beautiful it is and the variety of birds and butterflies attracted to the many different flowers plants and trees that can be found there.


Those with weak knees may find the Steps off-putting, BUT as soon as you reach Loxley House and turn - you realise that you just can't have that kind of view without a few steps to get their first. The house has proven to be a wonderful playground for the owner's family whilst growing up, the steps become part of this playground to be enjoyed as much as the woodland and gardens that fuel any Childs imagination. Of course, having a swimming pool in the gardens helps too! Loxley House really is a wonderful home, that offers so much to those brave enough to take the first step!


For those travelling further afield Weston-super-Mare offers easy road connections to all major local centres in the area including the City of Bristol some 22 miles away. In addition, junctions 21 and 22 of the M5 are both close by and the main line railway station in the centre of Weston offers local and intercity services with direct trains to Bristol, Bath and London - Paddington. Plus, the local Milton Station is only a short walk away, but also has FREE Parking too.
