An exceptional 4 reception room, 4 double bedroom, 2½ bathroom, Scandinavian style detached family house offering outstanding accommodation that includes a particularly attractive open plan kitchen/diner that overlooks the rear gardens a superb adjoining family room in addition to a very large study, a very pleasing living room and a separate dining room (or sitting room if preferred). The gardens, in keeping with the neighbouring properties are sizeable and the prestigious setting is considered to be one of the best locations for a modern house in the area.

This fabulous family home has been enlarged and tastefully improved over the years with a series of beautifully matched additions that have genuinely enhanced the already well-planned original layout. The feel of the design is quite contemporary, the rooms are all spacious, light and the accommodation is presented well.

Externally there is a lovely long private drive that is approached via ’a gateway’ formed by two fabulous Oak trees that stand like beautiful sentinels. The drive arrives at large Double Garage and generous, private, level gardens area arranged to the front and rear with further lawns and paved terraces that face south west, the perfect orientation for modern lifestyles.

The properties here are extremely well spaced and this is the premium wide cul de sac in Charterhouse Close. These properties in Rickford Road and Charterhouse Close were originally built with a full NHBC warranty by a well-known but not volume or national developer who had the vision to import Swedish components and seasoned timber which, coupled with unusually high Scandinavian insulation standards resulted in easily run but significant houses of a timeless design.

An indication of how good these properties are is that the former Chairman and C.E.O of the building firm lived here is Nailsea in one of these houses and enjoyed it until he and his wife downsized some 25 years later. Downsizing is typically the only reason the houses here ever become available and in the last few years the generations that have lived for two, three or four decades have passed their properties on to new families.

Virtually every property in this very small development offers an extremely good garden and the build density is remarkably low ensuring a real feeling of space, while this cul de sac and the neighbouring avenue are no through roads ensuring peace and quiet and safety for younger children.

The House:

The well-appointed accommodation that has been deftly enlarged adding the excellent family room and more so that this house offers significantly better ground floor accommodation than many of the outwardly similar houses of this, the developers flagship design.
The reception hall offers an immediate sense of space with an easy half return staircase rising via a well-lit stairwell to the first floor. A door opens to a cloakroom that has been refurbished in recent years and the flooring is oak – a theme that continues further into the house.

The ‘two desk’ size study off the hall is at 16' 8" x 10' 2" (5.08m x 3.10m) overall considerably larger than most and is useable as a double bedroom or a full reception room.

The living room enjoys an outlook to the front with almost wall to wall windows that allow a super open outlook and a feature open hearth fireplace. A double doorway width opening leads in turn to the formal dining room that has French doors to a sunny south and west facing terrace and the rear garden. This room offers good flexibility given that there is a kitchen diner next in the arrangement of rooms this area may be used as sitting space with access to the lawn.

The kitchen dining room is well proportioned having combined the space of the original more than ample kitchen - breakfast room and the former utility room too. The space available is very attractive having been updated in recent years with a full selection of timeless Shaker style cabinets with extensive granite worksurfaces that extend to a peninsular division between the kitchen area and the dining area.

There is a range of built in appliances and space for a large freestanding American style fridge freeze. A walk in larder is recessed to one side, there is plenty of space for most dining occasions while the outlook is to the terraces and lawns at the rear with windows and matching French doors. A door also leads from here to the family room.

The family room is an outstanding addition to the original accommodation with a feature high vaulted ceiling, good natural light from the Velux double glazed sky light and from the French doors and matching full drop side screens to the rear. A door from the family room leads in turn to the final room on the ground floor, an invaluable (and large) utility room with fitted cupboards and a deep walk in built in storage cupboards. A door from here also open to the paved area at the side of the house.

On the first floor a generous landing opens to the bathroom and the bedrooms. There is a double linen cupboard and a hatch and loft stairs to the attic space above.

The principal bedroom is very well proportioned with an excellent range of fitted wardrobes. The open outlook is to the front, there is a door to the balcony and a door to the ample en suite shower room that has been refurbished with a white suite.

The remaining bedrooms are all genuine double rooms, and they offer plenty of play space for younger children and more than enough space for teenagers and young adults at home.

Finally, the family bathroom has another modern white suite and a range of contrasting fitted cabinets. As well as the bath there is a shower enclosure with complementary ceramic wall tiling.

Outside:
The house stands very well with two fine, mature Oak trees framing the driveway entrance. The long tarmacadam drive is level and allows parking for many cars. The significant attached DOUBLE GARAGE has an up and over door, light, power, a very useful Butler sink (deep glazed) and scope for overhead storage which given the enormous headroom available provides enough space for a large mezzanine level if required.

N.B. The height of the garage is sufficient to form the basis of an additional bedroom and bathroom suite if ever required by addition of a large gabled (not flat roof) dormer above the garage space, subject to planning consents.

This type of alteration has been successfully carried out at similar properties elsewhere.

A gate at the side opens to a wide paved area at the side which is perfect for recycling bins etc and for compost bins or rainwater barrels with access from the back door out of the utility room.

There is more than enough space for a large garden shed on the opposite side of the house, while the rear garden is a further, particular feature of the property with a broad shaped terrace effectively designed as three linked terraces with doors opening from the dining room, the kitchen diner and from the family room, great for entertaining or just for the hottest summer days.

The lawn is again level and is of good size with well stocked borders enclosed by timber panel fencing, evergreen hedging and a variety of established tress shrubs and bushes that create a lovely mature and private space facing south and west to find sunshine right into the evening

Services: All main services are connected. Telephone connection. Gas fired central heating through radiators. Full double glazing with higher performance replacement windows throughout that have low maintenance PVCu frames finished in crisp white internally for added light. External power points. High speed and superfast broadband are available with download speeds up to 500mb or better via cable. Cable TV services are also available in the close.

The Town:

Nailsea is the smallest of the four North Somerset towns but the most conveniently placed for Bristol at just 8 miles from the city. A good range of amenities are available including large Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets, Doctors and Dental surgeries, a pedestrianised shopping centre with nationally known and smaller independent retailers, banks and professional offices. There is high employment, and nearby Golden Valley school has an outstanding rating by OFSTED. Though well placed for the commuter, Nailsea is surrounded by pretty North Somerset countryside but with easy access to other major centres in the area and access to the SUSTRANS national cycle network with a good route to Bristol and other destinations. Junctions 19 and 20 of the M5 are less than 6 miles giving easy access to the country’s motorway network and a main line rail connection is available at Nailsea and Backwell Station which is within walking distance with direct trains to Bristol, Filton-Abbeywood, Bath and London- Paddington.
