A well designed 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom (2 en suite) detached Scandinavian style family home occupying a superb position with an extensive plot and completely private south facing rear gardens in this premier residential area neighboured by a high value properties of varying layouts.
The Scandinavian properties here in Nailsea should not be confused with other non-genuine Scandinavian houses elsewhere in the town that are outwardly similar. These houses were built by a private developer who had the vision to import Swedish components and seasoned timber which, coupled with unusually high insulation standards, resulted in easily run but significant houses of a timeless design. Virtually every property in the development stands in a large garden and the build density is remarkably low ensuring a real feeling of space. Hence the tremendous popularity of this part of the town.
The present owners have clearly loved and enjoyed their home for almost 25 years and during their time here various improvements have been carried out including, refitting the kitchen, enlarging the original family bathroom making use of a space that was formerly a sauna area, the addition of a second en suite and some lovely garden landscaping that has created a particularly attractive setting.
The accommodation is spacious, well planned and cleverly designed to ensure that almost all main rooms take advantage of an outlook towards the south which is enhanced by the slightly elevated position. The rooms are very airy with large double-glazed windows and the decor is neutral and in good condition allowing you to just move straight in.
A sheltered panelled front door opens to a generous reception hall with feature staircase rising to the first-floor, a cloakroom off to one side, a door to the Garage and doors to each of the main ground floor rooms.
The double aspect living room has a pair of picture windows overlooking the well screened front gardens and a French door leading to a paved patio area and the rear gardens. A hole in the wall fireplace has raised ceramic tiled hearth and a living flame gas fire inset.
The dining room or family room also enjoys a bright double aspect and opens to the rear garden via double French doors. The adjacent kitchen breakfast room is fitted with a full range of Shaker style oak wall and floor cupboards with a matching upholstered bench seat in the breakfast area. There are ample worksurfaces and integrated appliances including a dish washer, a double oven – grill and a microwave oven together with an inset hob. Double aspect picture windows continue the bright airy theme, while a doorway opens to the utility room with further appliance space and side garden access.
The spacious first floor landing has a built-in linen cupboard, hatch access to the insulated loft and space for a study area.
The principal bedroom offers a range of fitted wardrobes and matching bedside furniture and a door leads to the en site bathroom – dressing room with further fitted wardrobes to match the bedroom. The en suite has been updated in recent years as have the other bathrooms and the cloakroom.
The second double bedroom overlooks the rear garden and benefits from a second en suite, this time a shower room.
The remaining bedrooms are both very appealing and virtually mirror each other. There is also an unusually spacious family bathroom that has been updated with another classic white suite including a corner bath and a separate shower enclosure.
Outside: The house stands well back in this exclusive avenue and is approached via tarmacadam double drive that provides parking and leads to the large attached DOUBLE GARAGE with an up and over door, a personnel door to the rear, a door to the reception hall, light, power and overhead storage.
N.B. The height of the garage is sufficient to form the basis of an additional bedroom suite if ever required by addition of a large dormer above the garage space (subject to any required consents).
This type of alteration has been successfully carried out at similar properties elsewhere.
The gardens area is a particular feature of the property with broad areas of garden on all four sides of the house. The front garden screens the house nicely with established hedging and a variety of shrubs and bushes. A sweep of lawn extends along the left boundary and this area is also screened by mature hedging.
A gate at the side opens to a paved patio area that faces south and leads in turn to the mainly lawned rear garden that is enclosed by walling and timber panel fencing with an even wider selection of established trees, shrubs and bushes including many fine specimens. A shaped gravelled terrace extends across the back of the house and continues to the far side where there is wide additional area of garden hidden away on the west side of the house and another shaped gravelled terrace is arranged in the far bottom corner of the garden with all ll areas being extremely private.
