This well balanced and versatile family home is ideally situated to take advantage of the excellent local amenities, primary and secondary schools, and local mainline train station at Nailsea/Backwell.
Set back from the road behind ample off-street parking, you enter a light filled and attractive hallway with stairs rising to the first floor and a useful understairs storage cupboard which was formally a cloakroom toilet. To the left of the entrance is a spacious dual aspect sitting room with French doors leading out to the rear garden and a stylish modern fireplace which creates a fantastic focal point. Polished wooden floorboards provide a lovely traditional contrast to the whitewashed walls and contemporary upright radiator.
To the rear of the hallway a door opens into an impressive open plan kitchen/dining room which again spans the full depth of the house, the kitchen area is fitted with a range of cream shaker style unit, complimented with a wood effect worktop, there is an integrated eye level double oven, gas hob, and dishwasher, a superb aluminium bi-fold frame window overlooks the gorgeous rear garden and offers a great vantage point to keep an eye on the kids in the back garden.
The dining area is perfect for more formal dining or family gatherings, with space for a good size dining table along with some soft seating if desired. The dining area also opens through to a further study/play area which has been carefully created by renovating part of the integral garage and has contemporary patio doors leading out to the side. The three rooms combine effortlessly to create what is the social hub of the house and what so many modern-day buyers are searching for.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a beautifully appointed ground floor wet room with stunning designer tiling and quality fixtures, along with a separate utility room and door to the garden.
On the first floor, off a large landing area which is bathed in natural light are the four bedrooms. The largest master bedroom is an impressive 22'0 in length and has a lovely dual aspect with fitted wardrobes, whilst bedrooms two and three are also great sized double rooms and include a wonderful feature of a tiny child sized opening linking both rooms through the adjoining wall. Bedroom four which is front facing is a good sized single but also could double up as a convenient second office/study if desired.
The family bathroom completes the first-floor accommodation and is fitted with a neat three-piece white suite with tiled splashbacks.
Outside, the property is blessed to enjoy an extremely attractive and spacious garden which has been beautifully tended to create not only a productive vegetable/fruit garden but also practical patio areas for outside entertaining, space for a 5m x 2.5m Cabin with insulation, electrics and its own isolated consumer unit (which could provide an external office) and several well planted raised borders. What's more for those with active kids there is a large lawned side garden, perfect for a five a side pitch and the trampoline.
As previously mentioned, there is parking for two/three vehicles comfortably with room to create more if desired and a useful workshop/storage area forming part of the original garage.
