- Enormous charm and great potential in a superb setting.
- No onward chain - offered subject to a Grant of Probate but no undue delays are anticipated.
An extremely pretty cottage orné dating from the 1930's and standing in this sought after avenue of grand designs and offering great potential to create your very own design of some grandeur with a superb mature garden of exceptional size that allows plenty of space to enlarge this already comfortable 3 bedroom home. Available without any onward chain delays.
This charming house is available for the first time in more than thirty years and throughout that period the property has been a treasured family home. The house has a lovely welcoming atmosphere with a number of traditional features including a high vaulted reception hall with a bespoke hardwood staircase and gallery and a very appealing corner bay window in the double aspect living room that opens to a broad terrace and overlooks the fabulous mature garden at the back.
The current layout of the house offers quite a bit of flexibility with large bedrooms on the ground and first floor, two separate reception rooms with the more than ample dining room adjoining a well proportioned kitchen breakfast room, allowing the opportunity to combine these rooms to form a sizeable sitting room and perhaps reorganise the bedroom and living room to create an open plan kicthen - diner - family room that would take full advantage of the outlook to the rear.
There is also huge potential, subject to the usual planning consents, to significantly extend the first floor above the utility area and garage without beginning to enlarge the footprint of the building which is also a possibility.
For many the house will need some reappointment but properties with such tremendous scope are increasingly difficult to find as so many have had their full potential realised by now. Fewer still will enjoy such a good setting with an extensive sunny garden, good drive space and a prestigious location.
The house is approached via double wrought iron gates set in a pillared gateway that leads to a brick paved drive and forecourt. There is an attached GARAGE with a metal up and over door, light and power and a personnel door to the rear, while on the far side of the house the porch shelters the ‘front door’.
The garden at the front is laid mainly to lawn with shaped borders planted with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and bushes that screen the house and frame the property very nicely.
The rear garden is a particular feature with a stone crazed paved terrace overlooks the garden. The terrace is slightly elevated and has been landscaped with a gently sloping path meandering past a pond that is formed from attractive Nailsea stone walling to a slightly lower area of paving at the level of the lawn.
An ancient garden shed is almost hidden away to one side with the lawn stretching away from the house for a considerable distance. The garden is fully enclosed with established hedges, timber panel fencing and a further variety of mature trees and shrubs with a fine specimen Magnolia tree towards one side.
The garden enjoys a sunshine all day and good privacy.
Ash Hayes Road is one of the older lanes in Nailsea and has developed over time with properties of various periods from 18th century cottages to new individual homes. There are several pre and post war houses that were built by a well-known local builder and we understand this house to have been and first occupied by him and his family.
The position is excellent with easy access to the town centre and the excellent local schools that including Golden Valley all close by. The parkland of Golden Valley and Scotch Horn is nearby too, and Nowhere Wood is closer still.
For shopping and other amenities such as health centres, dentists, a gym, cafes and restaurants, the town centre that is less than a 10-minute walk away. There are large Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets on the high street and nationally known and independent retailers plus a bank and crown post office in the Crown Glass Shopping Centre.
Nailsea enjoys easy road connections to all major centres in the area including Bristol that is just 8 miles away. In addition, junctions 19 and 20 of the M5 are both within 6 miles and the main line railway station offering local and intercity services with direct trains to Bristol and London-Paddington is again within walking distance on the edge of the neighbouring village of Backwell.
In addition, Nailsea is on a SUSTRANS national cycle route with a cycle path directly to Bristol.
