DESCRIPTION Beautifully maintained and extended five-bedroom executive home, with lush gardens and a double garage, situated in one of the most sought-after locations in Nailsea.
SITUATION Nailsea is a suburban town of North Somerset, approximately 8 miles (13 km) southwest of Bristol.The town was an industrial centre based on coal mining in the 16th century and glass manufacture from 1788, which have now been replaced by service industries. The surrounding North Somerset Levels has wildlife habitats and Bucklands Pool/Backwell Lake is a Local Nature Reserve. The well populated town centre includes two major supermarkets, high street banks, coffee shops and a leisure centre. Nailsea is close to the M5 motorway (junction 20) and Bristol International Airport at Lulsgate is 7 miles (11 km) away by road. The airport serves both domestic and international routes, and is one of EasyJet's hub airports. Secondary education is provided by Nailsea School (rebuilt as an Academy in 2009), and primary education by St Francis School, Grove School, Kingshill School and Golden Valley. Churches include the 14th-century Holy Trinity Church and Christ Church, which was built in 1843.
DIRECTIONS From our office in Backwell, proceed over the traffic lights in the direction of Nailsea on Station Road. Pass under the railway bridge, across Backwell Common and up the hill. Turn left into Queens Road, then take the right turning after ¼ mile into Wedmore Road. Proceed on into Rickford Road, and the property will be found on your left.
OURVENDORSAYS We moved to the West Country 23 years ago, due to a company relocation. As a family with, at that time, four young boys, we were keen to find a spacious property, with a good sized level garden, good road and rail links for business, but also with plenty of access to open countryside and recreational activities.House-hunting proved very difficult at that time, and we physically viewed over 50 properties - with 31 Rickford Road being the 49th. We had finally found what we were looking for!
On entering the property we were immediately struck by the light, spacious accommodation, and the back garden, whilst being big enough to provide ample energy-venting opportunities for the boys, also provides a very private and peaceful haven. The no-through road meant peace of mind when the children ventured outside the house, and the many local footpaths ensured a speedy and safe journey by foot to the ample selection of quality local schools.
Driving down the road there is an abundance of trees providing a changing landscape of foliage through the year, and the very clever positioning of these Scandinavian design houses ensures that a sense of privacy is maintained, whilst still keeping a very open and verdant outlook to the front aspect. Not overlooked by other properties to the rear, you can truly believe you are in a much more rural setting.
Whilst well positioned for road networks and, indeed, within walking distance of Nailsea and Backwell station, for those with four-legged, waggy-tailed companions, you can still be in the easily accessible surrounding countryside within a ten minute walk.
Number 31 has proved to be a very happy family home for well over two decades, but now that the boys have left home, we are seeking a property with land to satisfy our two dogs and a more rural lifestyle.
We feel sure that any new buyer will enjoy living here as much as we have, and will be warmly welcomed to the very friendly Rickford Road community.
WEHAVENOTICED An abundance of natural light, a secluded plot and tremendous living space greet you as you take the tour around this lovely family home. Our vendors brought up four boys here so bedroom space was a must - and in adding the extension this doesn't disappoint.
