This three-bedroom apartment in Portishead commands your attention, writes Sammy Milton
If you’re after a property that has it all, then look no further. Situated on the site of the old Bay Hotel in the ever-popular Portishead is this wonderful three-bedroom apartment.
Externally this building is magnificent. Retaining the original grandeur of its hotel days, it stands tall and proud, with huge windows and inviting balconies. Upon entering, the individual character of this property is immediately apparent.
Stepping into the entrance hall, lined with flagstone flooring, you come immediately to the large open-plan living room.
Light and airy thanks to the feature bay window overlooking the front of the property, the room is classically styled and carpeted throughout. There’s a lot of space here — more than enough for a wonderful dining set by the window and for a few comfy sofas, making this the ideal place to unwind and relax.
The kitchen is situated towards the rear of the room and is of an excellent size. Fitted with a matching range of base and wall units with a laminate roll-edge work surface over, it features modern ceiling spotlights and attractive wood-effect vinyl flooring. There is a range of integrated appliances, including a sink with drainer, fridge-freezer, and a four-ring gas burner. As well as this, there’s a stylish glass breakfast bar, perfect for settling down with a nice dinner.
The inner hall connects you to the rest of the apartment. There are three gorgeous double bedrooms, all impressively styled and of an excellent size. The master bedroom is a work of art — full of natural light thanks to double-glazed windows to the front and sides and luxuriously carpeted throughout. There’s also a beautiful dressing room attached, fitted with a range of clothing rails and shelving. With a built-in dressing table with a mirror, this is a prime place to primp up before heading out, and there’s also an en suite. This really is something — fitted with a four-piece suite and his-and-hers sinks, a double walk-in shower and a decadent freestanding roll-top bath.
The second bedroom is just as lovely. Featuring plenty of light and space, there’s a built-in wardrobe for extra storage and shelving that lines the walls. The third bedroom, although slightly smaller, is still of a good size. There’s scope to turn this room into a home office or nursery should you fancy.
The lovely family bathroom completes the apartment, fitted with a three-piece suite comprising a sink, WC and a panelled bath. Tiled throughout, another door leads you through to the airing cupboard, providing even more space should you need it.
The property is offered with its own parking space, and there’s plenty of visitors' parking for when you have guests to stay. Location wise, you’re in a good spot too. The marina and beach are close by, as well as a huge range of local amenities such as shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants.
This is a dynamic home that really commands your attention, so don’t miss out!
