According to well-founded local rumour, this property was designed, first for one of the village doctors, whose partner lived next door in Nailsea.
One of a kind and completely bespoke in design this substantial single-storey property offers purchases flexibility and opportunity. The current vendors have full planning consent to reconfigure the space to make more of the views over the lovely garden, opening it all up for a growing family to spend even more time together.
Old Kingshill Court currently comprises a super entrance hall which is light and inviting, with ample cupboards for storage, kitchen/breakfast room with some integrated appliances such as Bosch oven, gas hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and plumbing for washing machine, with loads of space for table and chairs. This opens into a gallery with tiled floor and clerestory glazing is designed for overlooking the courtyard terrace, and leads back into the superb sitting room which seems to hover strikingly over the garden below. Back towards the entrance hall are four double bedrooms, most with wardrobes and space for further furniture, and all overlooking the courtyard garden. There is a bathroom next to the master bedroom offering a corner bath and a contemporary shower room for the other bedrooms to enjoy.
Outside is an absolute delight, having gated vehicular access from both Kingsmead and Kingshill (for smaller vehicles only). The stone wall frames the private, secluded garden which neighbours stunning Nailsea House, the drive forms a carriage sweep and bears around so that cars can park directly in the under croft double garage, alternatively there is parking for a number of vehicles on the driveway itself.
The south west facing courtyard is risen so that it benefits from views over the garden and works as an idyllic place to have BBQ's in the summer.
The whole benefits from double glazed windows, individuality, potential with existing planning for reconfiguration, parking, a beautiful garden and no onward chain complications.
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town was an industrial centre based on coal mining in the 16th century and glass manufacture from 1788, which have now been replaced by service industries.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.
