The pull of Portishead

There’s lots to love about this well-positioned family home in a quiet residential corner, says James Higgins

This incredibly practical four- or five-bedroom property has been extended in multiple areas and offers an abundance of space. Providing well-proportioned living spaces, impeccable presentation, and a good-sized garden, this house requires no updating and is a superb family home. What’s more, the property’s situ is popular for good reason, and is a short walk from High Down School and a park.

The ground floor boasts an impressive kitchen/diner at its heart, as well as a reception, living room, conservatory, and WC grouped around a large hallway.

The kitchen/diner is one large through space linking the hallway to the conservatory. Fully-fitted with wooden units, the kitchen is amply equipped and includes an integral oven, hob and dishwasher as well as lots of storage and preparation space. Every inch of this room is beautifully lit by spot lights and the dark tiled flooring is a low maintenance and stylish feature.

The conservatory could provide either a seating or a formal dining area (which would suit, given its proximity to the kitchen). With French doors on to the patio and garden, it’d be a great spot to unwind or entertainment space during the summer. The large living room also benefits from French doors on to the garden and is a perfect feature for a family home of this size – there’s a near 16m² of space, so room for all the extended family.

The first floor comprises four bedrooms, of which two (including the master suite) are double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room which is neatly fitted to maximise the available space. In addition to the family bathroom, the first floor also includes a play room. With a skylight to the rear and a front-facing aspect, it’s a bright and airy 6m-long space. Other uses could include a home office, dressing room/walk-in wardrobe, or even a home cinema.

The good-sized garden is a fantastic feature, especially for young families. There’s a patio, large lawn, established trees, and some low maintenance borders making it a perfect place for barbecus and al freso dining.

The location is also worthy of note and sets this home off perfectly – from the nearby park, a network of paths leads through the fields towards woodlands making it a dog owner’s paradise. Make you sure you book a viewing soon!
