Those that visit will find a wonderful period country house with arts and crafts details dating from around 1890 standing in a private, level but elevated setting enjoying 360 degree views over a beautiful and gently undulating pastoral landscape as far as the coast.
This very special property is one of the most admired homes in the highly desirable hamlet of West End and it has always been a landmark house. While very private the house is neither isolated or remote and the nearest shopping in Nailsea is just about 1¼ miles away and the town centre with a Waitrose supermarket is just 2 miles. Backwell with it’s main line railway station is 2½ miles, Clevedon with its motorway junction, Victorian promenade and pier is a little over 3 miles and Bristol is only 10 miles away.
The house offers classically proportioned accommodation that has been very carefully restored and enlarged for the current owners in recent years. They have created a superb family home that is enriched with many fine original features but also successfully incorporates a series of contemporary design elements that complement the living space extremely well.
A suitably impressive reception hall with a grand Victorian staircase leads ultimately to 4 excellent reception rooms including the family room that is part of the stunning open plan triple aspect kitchen – dining - family room layout measuring over 36’ (11m) This suite of rooms has a part vaulted ceiling and opens to a superb terrace and the swimming pool terrace. In addition, there is a boot room, a cloakroom and a generous utility room on the ground floor.
Above, the part galleried landing allows access to a family bathroom and then four comfortable bedrooms, two having bathrooms en suite and all taking advantage of the lovely views in all directions.
The house is approached via a pillared gateway set in very appealing local stone walls that fully enclose the property.
The remote controlled gates open to a drive and carriage sweep with a superb 3-car garage and adjoining WC – changing area serving the pool and garden. A barrel-vaulted cellar is accessed from the forecourt, the swimming pool is heated and the extensive gardens and grounds provide an almost parkland setting.
