A rare opportunity to acquire a beautifully presented five double bedroom Victorian property, located within one of Portishead's most desirable addresses 'Beach Road East'. 'Fairfield House' is an attractive family home that enjoys many original period features combined with all the modern day luxuries.
Rarely do such individual properties become available: it occupies an enviable elevated position overlooking Portishead and the Gordano Valley in the distance. Without a doubt, one of the most striking features of this fine residence, aside from the sumptuous fittings and views, has to be the living accommodation, designed with the sole purpose of family life, with the ground boasting four reception rooms, the kitchen breakfast room, dining room, living room and drawing room, which are the hub of the home.
The convenient location makes it the ideal choice to a variety of purchasers, with easy access to both Portishead's traditional High Street and the delights that the Marina has to offer, with a selection of Bars and Restaurants to enjoy in both locations. The family buyer will warm to the nearby Lake Grounds, providing children the perfect space to explore or play the various sporting activities the 'Lake Grounds' has to offer or enjoy a picnic during those warm summer months.
Offering true flexibility of use, as well an abundance of charm and character, typically associated with a quintessentially English Victorian home, the home has undergone a careful programme of improvements whilst keeping many original features, creating a truly wonderful family home to enjoy for many years to come.
